Rumors have been surrounding the relationship of the beautiful couple since early summer. But Maks and the Sports Illustrated cover girl insisted that they were “just friends”. But now it seems that these two are more than friends. Cameras caught them walking in New York City holding hands and looking happy.
A source told E! News that despite their claims of being “just friends”, Kate Upton and Maksim Chmerkovskiy have actually “been together for about six months”. The source went on to explain the chemistry between the twosome. “They go to the gym together a lot. Fitness is something they bond over. They also go on a lot of late-night walks. It’s romantic and they know that at night there’s less of a chance they’ll be recognized.”
Another source told People Magazine that the pair really did start out as friends, but over time friendship turned to romance. Specifically after a romantic night at a New York City restaurant to celebrate Upton’s 21st birthday.
“That’s when it really happened,” says the source. “It all really started just after her 21st birthday. They just clicked. They have a lot of chemistry together.”
“They get along great,” adds the source. “They have a lot of fun together.”
Now, if Maks would ever return to Dancing With the Stars – the show that made him famous — he may have the most beautiful cheering section in the ballroom. Or maybe producers could talk him into returning to the show and teaming up with his new lady love!
