Kate Upton and Justin Verlander nude photos leaked

Kate Upton Justin Verlander

Alleged nude photos of Kate Upton and boyfriend Justin Verlander were leaked online Sunday as part of a massive celebrity photo leak.

The alleged nude photos show the Detroit Tigers ace and supermodel girlfriend naked in a bathroom standing side-by-side in profile with the mirror. Upton, who has twice appeared on the cover of Sports Illustrated’s swimsuit edition, is seen holding up a cell phone which she used to snap the pictures. Verlander’s bare bottom is visible in both photos, while Upton’s is visible in one and covered by Verlander’s hands in the other.

Upton and Verlander first met while shooting a commercial for MLB 2K12 in 2012 and began dating soon thereafter. The two refused to confirm their relationship in 2012, and it seems like they broke up at some point later in the year or in early 2013. But the two got back together and began making numerous public appearances together at the beginning of the year. Upton has also gone to watch many of Verlander’s games this season.

Neither Upton nor Verlander have addressed the nude photos. Upton did not tweet at all on Sunday, while Verlander has not tweeted since last week. Upton stated in a recent interview that she would not get naked because of the negative backlash from blogs and social media.

Numerous celebrities have been victims of the massive leak, with some confirming the authenticity of the photos and others saying they are fake.

According to BuzzFeed, the photos appear to have originated on a 4chan forum where they were posted by an anonymous user. The user claimed to have obtained the photos through an iCloud leak and was offering to sell them for bitcoins. A master list posted by the anonymous user indicated they had photos and/or videos of around 60 celebrities.

The most prominent target of the leak was Oscar Award-winning actress Jennifer Lawrence, who had several nude photos hit the web. Her representatives confirmed the authenticity of the photos and threatened to prosecute anyone who posted or spread the photos.

Other celebrities allegedly victimized by the leak include Kirsten Dunst, Teresa Palmer, Becca Tobin, Jessica Brown Findlay, Krysten Ritter, Lea Michele, Ariana Grande, Brie Larson, Ali Michael, Mary Elizabeth Winstead and Victoria Justice. Athletes McKayla Maroney and Hope Solo were also alleged victims of the leak.

Justice claimed the pictures of her were fake:

Winstead confirmed the authenticity of the photos while lashing out at the hacker and those who viewed her photos:

Justin Verlander had ‘worst stuff’ of his career before shoulder injury

Justin VerlanderJustin Verlander pitched just one inning for the Detroit Tigers against the Pittsburgh Pirates Monday night before being removed with shoulder discomfort. Manager Brad Ausmus said Verlander wanted to stay in the game but there was no sense risking injury when his “delivery looked different.” His pitches looked pretty bad, too.

Despite not wanting to exit after giving up four earned runs in one inning, Verlander admitted he had no command over his pitches.

“Warming up, it didn’t feel great,” he said, via Tom Gage of The Detroit News. “Then it started loosening up. When I got on the mound, there were no sharp pains but the ball wasn’t coming out of my hand good at all.

“I was throwing 88 or 90, the worst stuff of my career. I told Brad I wanted to go back out there and would let him know if it got worse. But he said that was the end of my night. It’s been lingering for a little while, but I didn’t think I’d be risking anything more by going back out there.”

The Tigers lost 11-6 and fell into second place after the Kansas City Royals beat the Oakland A’s. Detroit has been in first since June 19, but there are still a lot of games remaining in the regular season. Had this been a postseason game, Ausmus probably would have let Verlander stay in.

“After watching him, I didn’t want to risk him getting seriously injured,” Ausmus explained. “His delivery looked different. My gut told me something was bothering him. I was immediately worried from the start of the game.”

Verlander has not been right all season. He is 10-11 with a 4.76 ERA coming off offseason sports hernia surgery. Miguel Cabrera, who had the same procedure done as Verlander, said last month that both have been struggling to regain their form. Cabrera seems to be having an easier time with it than Verlander.

With David Price now in the mix, the Tigers could have the best postseason rotation in baseball if healthy. Verlander seems to be struggling with the health thing at the moment.

Kate Upton goes gaga after boyfriend Justin Verlander tosses her souvenir ball (GIF)

The lovely Kate Upton took in Monday’s Yankees-Tigers game at Yankee Stadium and received a nice souvenir from a special friend.

Upton’s boyfriend Justin Verlander wasn’t pitching during the game, so he had some time to flirt with his girlfriend, who was sitting in the premium seats behind the dugout.

You can see Upton mouth something to Verlander to the effect of “I was here the whole time.”

Verlander then flips her a ball that seems to have a message written on it, because Katie cakes reads it and then makes a gaga face before giving her boyfriend a heart symbol with her hands. How cute. It’s just like watching a couple of middle schoolers.

Look at this face:

Miguel Cabrera: Justin Verlander and I having trouble recovering from surgery

Miguel-Cabrera-TigersMiguel Cabrera and Justin Verlander both underwent the same surgical procedure within the past year. The two Detroit Tigers stars had sports hernia surgery, with Cabrera going under the knife last October and Verlander having it done in January. According to Cabrera, neither player has fully recovered.

Miggy is having another fantastic season, leading Major League Baseball with 75 RBI and the AL with 34 doubles. However, his 14 home runs are well behind last season’s pace. Verlander struggled throughout the first half of the season, compiling an 8-8 record with a 4.88 ERA.

“There are times when I feel good, but there are always muscles that are tightening, muscles that are not functioning properly,” Cabrera said Monday, via a translation from Jorge L. Ortiz of USA Today Sports. “It’s part of the process. The same thing is happening to Justin Verlander, but the difference is he pitches every five days, so you don’t see it as frequently.”

Despite the nagging injury, Cabrera said he and Verlander do not want to use their ongoing recovery as a crutch.

“But as he and I talked about, we’re never going to offer any excuses for our performance,” Miggy added. “We always want to be out on the field and compete, and I think that’s the most important thing we can do, compete and try to get past this tough time. And the main thing is we’re in first place.”

Sports hernia injuries can affect the waist and lower body area, so that explanation certainly makes sense. It would help explain why Cabrera isn’t blasting as many home runs and why Verlander’s velocity has been down.

As Cabrera mentioned, the Tigers have a 6.5-game lead in the AL Central despite Verlander’s slow start and Miggy’s somewhat human-like numbers. If both can get healthy in the second half, Detroit will be even more dangerous.

Justin Verlander thinks A’s made blockbuster trade with Tigers in mind

Justin VerlanderOn Friday, the Oakland A’s and Chicago Cubs agreed to deal that strengthens one of the best starting rotation in the American League, with Jeff Samardzija and Jason Hammel being the main pieces.

After taking some criticism for the signing of Jim Johnson, A’s general manager Billy Beane made a big splash by improving his team’s chances for making a deep postseason run.

Speaking of the postseason, the Detroit Tigers have been the end of the road for the A’s each of the last two seasons, knocking Oakland out in the American League Division Series both years. Among those who had a hand in helping the Tigers advance is Justin Verlander.

The former Cy Young Award winner weighed in on Oakland’s recent trade and thinks it was done with his team in mind.

The Tigers and A’s each have 3.5 game leads in their respective divisions at the moment, albeit with a lot of baseball yet to be played. While there’s no guarantee each will make the playoffs, it would be fun to watch a series with the arms in the starting rotation each team possesses. It would have my attention for sure.

Justin Verlander likes Kate Upton for the same reasons we do

Kate-Upton-Justin-Verlander-kiss

Justin Verlander and Kate Upton went to Game 7 between the Boston Bruins and Montreal Canadiens on Wednesday night. Verlander picked up a win against the Baltimore Orioles earlier in the day before flying to Boston for a series against the Red Sox later this week. As you can see, his lady friend had no problem showing him a little love in public.

What we also learned — although it was pretty much common sense — is that Verlander appears to appreciate Kate’s assets the same way we do. Even he couldn’t resist staring at a certain area of her body knowing that he could be shown on live television at any moment.

Eyes on the ice, bro. Upton and Verlander are obviously going strong, as indicated by their many public displays of affection. Man I hate this guy, but god dammit if I don’t respect him.

Nelson Cruz does great crotch grab after Justin Verlander throws behind him (Video)

Nelson Cruz had a pretty funny reaction to Justin Verlander throwing behind him during an at-bat in Wednesday’s Tigers-Orioles game.

The Tigers were up 5-0 in the fourth when Cruz came up with Chris Davis on first. Verlander’s first pitch was in the dirt, and his 1-0 pitch whizzed behind the Baltimore DH. The wild pitch allowed Davis to advance to second, and it led home plate umpire John Tumpane to warn Verlander and both teams.

Was Verlander sending a message two days after Torii Hunter was hit by Bud Norris, or was it just coincidence? Who knows, but Cruz’s reaction was pretty awesome. He also got the last laugh in that matter, too, because he hit a 3-run home run off Verlander in his next at-bat to give him 11 for the season.

Now the video didn’t show this part, but Cruz reportedly (and by reportedly, I mean in my imagination) told Verlander to suck on his little Chinese nuts:
