More rumors are swirling about rapper Sean ‘P. Diddy’ Combs, 43. Last year the rumor mill had us believing that Diddy was going to take a spot on the American Idol judging panel. As it turns out, that wasn’t true. And now, rumor has it he and Sports Illustrated cover girl, Kate Upton, 20, are dating. But this claim isn’t true either! In fact, both Kate Upton and Diddy were quick to sound off slamming claims that they’re a hot item. Take the jump to see what they had to say.
In February, Upton announced she and Detroit Tigers pitcher Justin Verlander were no longer dating and just a month later, according to CNN, The New York Daily News reported Upton and Diddy were caught sharing a smooch at Club LIV in Miami Beach, FL on March 24.
But the story doesn’t stop there. The latest reports say the hip-hop mogul and model were spotted in New York City at the Bowery Hotel last week while out on a romantic dinner date.
And while the news came as somewhat of a shock to their fans, no one was more surprised than Upton and Diddy. After hearing about the rumors, Upton took to Twitter and said, “Really? Not at all true.”
Later, Diddy also shot down the rumors tweeting, “Attention all media, I don’t even know Kate Upton personally! I’m not dating her…What’s being reported is not true…END of story!”
Well shoot, so much for ‘Diddyup,’ a nickname that had already been picked out for the powerhouse couple.
