NEW PIC: Maksim, Who? Kate Upton Rebounds with Her Ex-Boyfriend Jason Verlander

See, Kate Upton is just like you and me when it comes to the adage “old habits die hard.”

The 21-year-old cover girl is mending her broken heart from her not-so-surprising split from Maksim Chmerkovskiy in only the best way a normal girl from Michigan knows how.

…By rebounding with her other ex-boyfriend.

And here’s the pic.

Celebuzz broke the story that the top-heavy supermodel and baseball star Jason Verlander were an item in Oct. 2012 after months of speculation and sightings.

When that relationship went south, Kate turned her sights to the Dancing with the Stars pro. But after calling it quits six months later, Jason’s got to be the happiest (and most envied guy) in the NBL now that it looks like the Sports Illustrated favorite and the Detroit Tigers pitcher are on again after a very observant fan spotted the twosome getting cozy in box seats at the Philadelphia Flyers hockey game last Saturday.

Look closely…

Hmm, we have to wonder what Maks thinks about all this? But we’re pretty sure the serial DWTS dater will find another hoofer to ask out to help dull the pain.
