Kate Upton and Maksim Chmerkovskiy split up for a number of reasons, some of which might surprise you. The first one, though, is kind of obvious.
“It was the distance. He travels and she travels, and it didn’t work out,” a pal said, adding that the two “were never that serious in the first place.”
Another source begs to differ regarding that second part.
“She liked him and brought him to meet her parents at a football game. She invited him to a lot of family things. She got serious about him quickly."
"He thinks she’s a good person. It just didn’t work out. The fact of the matter is that she is a 21-year-old girl and Maks is 33,” added the insider.
Our source says Maks “panicked” when Kate Upton went apartment-hunting in Manhattan’s Flatiron District to be near his Fort Lee, N.J., residence.
That's when she got the message, and called it off.
