Kate Upton nude photos likely came from Justin Verlander’s phone

Kate Upton Justin Verlander

Kate Upton recently made a point of saying she would nude pose nude for photos, but personal pictures of her naked ended up on the internet anyway.

The FBI is investigating whether the nude photos of Upton and many other celebrities that ended up on the internet Sunday were the result of the people falling for phishing scams rather than hackers exposing an iCloud security breach. Regardless of what investigators determine, the most likely scenario is that the nude photos of Upton came from the phone of her boyfriend, Justin Verlander.

A set of several photos made it onto the net Sunday that included naked shots of Upton. The photos appeared to come from one specific phone’s camera roll. That camera roll contained multiple pictures of Verlander in various stages of undress. The photos also contained pictures of women other than Kate Upton. Figuring that this was Verlander’s camera roll, the photos probably were ones texted to him by other women. That doesn’t necessarily mean Verlander’s cheating on her — the two were broken up for most of 2013 from what we can tell — and we don’t know when he received them.

Additional proof that the photos came from Verlander’s phone was discovered by Deadspin. They were able to reverse track the data for the leaked photos and discovered that most of them followed Verlander’s traveling schedule with the Tigers.

On Sunday, there was an imgur gallery of photos on the net that seemed to be derived from Verlander’s phone. That gallery is no longer on the internet.

Kate Upton and Justin Verlander nude photos leaked

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:

Kid at Little League World Series has important life goal

Clayton Broeder Kate Upton

Clayton Broeder, the No. 2 hitter for the Pearland, Texas, Little League World Series team, already has his priorities properly placed.

Can’t say his life goals are all that different from ours. We’re guessing he’s seen the Kate Upton Cat Daddy video:

Even Justin Verlander had to get a kick out of this.

Kate Upton won’t get naked because of mean blogs, social media

Kate Upton SI swimsuit cover

Many of us go to sleep imagining what Kate Upton looks like naked. We dream about her. We fantasize about doing unmentionable things with her body. We think about what she looks like without clothes.

Unfortunately for all of us, our imaginations are all we will have.

Kate Upton says she will not be posing naked for pictures any time too soon. And you aholes are to blame.

In an interview with Details Magazine, Upton was asked why she hasn’t posed nude yet. She says it’s because of you meanies on social media and the blogs.

Is your voice also the reason why you have stayed away from being photographed naked? Being shot nude by great fashion photographers is very common among famous models like Kate Moss, Naomi Campbell, and Lara Stone.

For me those photos are art. Your body is art, your body is beautiful, and to be photographed in that way is amazing and it’s received in a very positive way. But with social media and the Internet and not so great blogs and the attention like that, I don’t think that my pictures would be received in the way that I’d want them to be received. That’s why I’ve stayed away from them. I really appreciate those photos and I think those women are beautiful, but I think social media and the Internet has prevented me from putting myself out there like that.

I get the whole social media thing. Now all those pervs who in the past would have to keep their fantasies to themselves or at worst send in some fan snail mail actually have the ability to show Kate how pervy they are with one simple tweet. But the blogs? We love Kate. We’re nice. Maybe she’s talking about all those idiotic ones who call her fat. Screw them, Kate. We at LBS like some meat on them bones.

Until she bares it all, we’ll just have to settle for her teasing us with extremely revealing photos. And awesome videos.

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:

Kate Upton makes joke about Cavs fans and their LeBron jerseys

LeBron James Cavs 6 jersey

Plenty of Cleveland Cavaliers fans began kicking themselves about a week ago when they realized burning their old LeBron James jerseys may come back to haunt them. NBA jerseys aren’t cheap, and fans could have saved themselves some money by just throwing their LeBron jerseys in a box and sticking the box in the attic.

Kate Upton realizes this. The Sports Illustrated swimsuit model noted on Friday that the Cavs stand to make a whole bunch of money thanks to fans being overly emotional.

Of course, LeBron is likely going to wear a different number with the Cavs this time around. Those old 23 jerseys would be considered throwback, as it initially looked like James was going to wear No. 6 and now there is speculation that he will be wearing No. 32, which he wore in high school.

In other words, the Cavs were going to make a bunch of money anyway. But when Kate talks, we listen. Why? See below:

What’s up with Kate Upton and Maksim Chmerkovskiy?

Kate-Upton-singleLast we checked, Kate Upton and Detroit Tigers pitcher Justin Verlander were still in their puppy love phase. Heck, Verlander was caught staring at her like a 14-year-old who just saw his first pair of bing-bongs just a couple weeks ago at a hockey game. So what’s this chatter about Upton and “Dancing With the Stars” pro Maksim Chmerkovskiy?

Upton and Chmerkovskiy dated for a while but broke up late last year. However, Chmerkoviskiy posted a photo on Instagram Sunday of him with Upton draped around his neck. The photo was supposedly taken at Tao in New York City.

That could very well have been an old photo, and Chmerkoviskiy may have sent it out by mistake. If not, it looks like the former couple has maintained a solid relationship through their split. And if Verlander and Upton are still going steady, he probably wouldn’t be happy about Miss Kate hanging out with her ex.

Yeah, it was probably an old picture.
