Kate Upton and Maksim Chmerkovskiy: Dating! Or Just Friends?

by at .  Updated at . Comments

A celebrity news site reports that Kate Upton and Maksim Chmerkovskiy of Dancing With the Stars fame are dating, but that's probably a bit of a stretch.

One source told E! that the two "are just good friends," while a second source (close to Maks) revealed that they've "heard nothing about them dating."

They sure would be a hot couple, but that's likely the extent of it.

The duo were said to be spotted getting cozy during a dinner at Scalinatella in New York City, though the Upper East Side eatery debunked the report.

Kate Upton's dinner, they said, did "not look intimate at all."

While the restaurant did not confirm that it was the DWTS vet with the buxom model, they did say that the two dinner guests appeared to be "just friends."

Upton has remained mum on her dating life but opened up in February to deny that she was dating Detroit Tigers pitcher Justin Verlander in an interview.

Besides Justin, Upton hasn't been seriously linked to anyone in more than two years - and even that was never confirmed. She's just focused on work.

Our guess is that the 21-year-old won't be single for too long if she ever decides she's interested in a relationship of the romantic sort.

Just call that a hunch on THG's part ...
