Sports Illustrated swimsuit cover model Kate Upton is remaining coy about all those pesky rumors that she’s dating New York Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez. The blonde bombshell has been linked to the footballer, whom she met through her older sister, who works for the Jets.

So what’s the deal? Celebuzz reached out to a friend close to the model, who revealed:

“The rumors are just that. They are one-hundred-percent not dating.”

Earlier this week, Upton stopped by The Ellen DeGeneres Show and was drilled by the host, who was trying to get the Sports Illustrated swimsuit model to fess up to the rumors. After a few minutes of Ellen’s interrogation, Upton shot back, “Do you want it to be him?” The model explained that she has only met Sanchez “briefly” at a Jets game because her sister has worked for the team for the past four years.

Celebuzz reached out to Upton and Sanchez’s rep, who both declined to comment.
