Hot New Couple Alert: Kate Upton and The Hot Guy from ‘Dancing With the Stars’
The nature of celebrity is an odd thing. These people, thrust into the spotlight thanks to some sort of talent or god given ability, are, at their core, regular human beings like you and me. They laugh, they cry and they date. Oh man, do they date. Sometimes these celeb pairings just make sense; Beyoncé and Jay Z are both massively successful artists in intersecting genres of music. Sometimes they completely boggle the mind; where did Kaley Cuoco and Henry Cavill even meet? And here’s a new couple to consider: cover model du jour Kate Upton and dancing meatstick Maksim Chmerkovskiy, who you may know as the hot dancer from Dancing With the Stars who can’t seem to keep his shirt buttoned.
Upton and Chmerkovskiy were spotted by the New York Post source Monday night holding hands at Catch in New York City’s Meatpacking District, which is not a joke about Maksim trying to fit his pecs into a t-shirt. According to the witness, “they seemed pretty open about their relationship.” The two have been rumored to be a couple for some time now, though Maksim denied those rumors recently, telling Extra, “we go way back.” Which, Kate Upton is a 21-year-old model raised in Melbourne, Florida and Maksim Chmerkovskiy is a 33-year-old dancer from Ukraine, how far back can they really go?
Chmerkovskiy was previously engaged to DWTS co-star Karina Smirnoff, but the two broke up in 2009. The two are currently co-starring in Forever Tango on Broadway. Upton, for her part, has been single for most of the time she’s been in the public eye, despite scores of enthusiastic fans.
