If the rumors are true, it looks like Dancing With The Stars bad boy Maksim Chmerkovskiy may finally be dating outside of his close-knit reality show circle. Following a breakup with costar Peta Murgatroyd, the professional dancer has recently been linked to bathing beauty Kate Upton. Talk about an attractive pairing!
In the past, dating has been relatively easy for Maks Chmerkovskiy. While a featured pro on Dancing With The Stars, all he had to do was ask out one of the other professionals or wait until ABC paired him with an attractive prospect such as Erin Andrews. But now that he’s no longer a regular on DWTS, Maks is allegedly having his friends play matchmaker. According to one insider, such was the case when the reality star recently found himself dating popular model Kate Upton.
According to a source for Us Weekly, the relationship between Makswim Chmerkovskiy and Kate Upton is still in its beginning stages. “They were set up through friends. They just started dating.” A second insider explains that, thus far, the dates have been very romantic. For example, the hot couple was recently spotted dining at New York City’s exclusive Scalinatella. ”They were very canoodly…it was a very intimate meal.”
But is this romance real, or just another bit of unreliable gossip? An alternative source has cast doubt on the rumors, suggesting that the two are “just good friends.” The management for Scalinatella appears to agree, claiming that the meal shared by Maks and Kate did “not look intimate at all.”
So, what do you think? Could Maks Chmerkovskiy and Kate Upton be dating? Would they make a good couple? Leave a comment and let us know what you think!
