Justin Verlander gives strong indication that he is back with Kate Upton


Justin Verlander and Kate Upton must be back together. The two were flirting on Twitter last month amid reports of them being spotted at a Philadelphia Flyers game together and vacationing together in the Bahamas. Over the weekend, Verlander gave us an even stronger indication when the Orlando Magic mascot hit on Upton.

The Sports Illustrated swimsuit model posted the photo you see above on Twitter Friday night and thanked Stuff the Magic Dragon for proposing to her and giving her a ring. Verlander joked about it on Twitter with this reaction:

You can safely file that one under “stuff boyfriends say.” The Detroit Tigers star later sent another flirty tweet.

The only bad news here for Verlander is that we’re coming up on the one-year anniversary of Kate surprising us all when she publicly denied that she and Justin are together. Here’s hoping Valentine’s Day treats him a little better this time around.

Every sign seems to point to Justin Verlander and Kate Upton being back together as boyfriend-girlfriend.

Last week we told you that the Detroit Tigers ace and supermodel were spotted at a Philadelphia Flyers game. US Weekly then reported that the two vacationed in the Bahamas together last weekend and were “looking very cozy.”

The two also have not been shy about interacting over social media.

When Verlander sent his tweet Sunday about how Richard Sherman would get thrown at if he played baseball, Upton added something about Verlander being a Virginia boy:

Verlander then tweeted back:

A few days later there was more.

Justin Verlander and Kate Upton went to the Flyers game together


Rumors of Kate Upton dating Detroit Tigers pitcher Justin Verlander have existed for well over a year. Upton threw some water on the fire last February during an interview around Valentine’s Day when she declared herself single. On Saturday, the Cy Young Award winner and bikini dominator attended a Philadelphia Flyers game together.

As you can see from the photo above that Twitter user @charlton_dylan shared, Upton and Verlander sat together in some box seats. Several other people tweeted during the game that they spotted the two together at the Wells Fargo Center.

We’d say that Upton and Verlander have probably just been friends since the rumors began swirling, but even Verlander’s grandfather once said the two were a couple. It’s also worth noting that Upton reportedly broke up with “Dancing With the Stars” veteran Maksim Chmerkovskiy a few weeks ago. Coincidence? I guess it could be.

Kate Upton and boyfriend Maksim Chmerkovskiy reportedly break up

Kate UptonBig news in the celebrity dating world: Kate Upton and boyfriend Maksim Chmerkovskiy have broken up, according to a report.

The New York Post’s Page Six reports that the supermodel and “Dancing With the Stars” veteran have split up. They say the long-distance relationship — she spends most of her time in New York while he is in LA — didn’t work out and that they hardly got to see each other.

Ordinarily we wouldn’t care about Chmerkovskiy because he has no sports ties, but Upton is kind of a big deal. Now that she’s back on the market, it’s time to handicap what athlete she’ll date next, because we’re fully expecting her to rebound with a sports figure.

Upton has dated Detroit Tigers ace Justin Verlander and rumors said she was dating Mark Sanchez. Since she likes pitchers and New York athletes, how great would it be if she ended up with Mets ace Matt Harvey? Then there would be an SI model fight between her and Anne V, who is already dating the pitcher.

Kate Upton could play female lead in ‘Entourage’ movie

Kate-UptonThose of us who have been experiencing “Entourage” withdrawals for the past two years were relieved to hear that all of the stars that made the HBO series famous have signed on to film a movie. If you’re an “Entourage” fan who also happens to love Kate Upton, we have great news.

According to TheWrap,com, Upton is one of the favorites to land the female lead role in the upcoming “Entourage” movie. The incredibly popular Sports Illustrated swimsuit model has not been formerly offered a role, though she is said to be in discussions to join the cast.

Since she captured the hearts of America with her body paint and nakedness in arctic climates, Upton has played minor roles in movies such as “Tower Heist” and “The Three Stooges.” She will also appear in an upcoming movie called “The Other Woman” alongside Cameron Diaz and Leslie Mann. No details have been released about Kate’s potential role in the “Entourage” movie, though TheWrap.com speculates she could play Vince Chase’s (Adrian Grenier’s) latest love interest.

Fans of “Entourage” will tell you that the show ended with Vince planning to marry a Vanity Fair writer he fell in love with, so Upton could be in for another role. It was also pretty much a given that all of Vince’s girlfriends had to appear on screen with no clothes on at some point. Will Kate take it to that level? A man can dream.

Oakland A’s fans are taking a page out of the Toronto Raptors fan book — yes, there’s such a thing — and resorting to the ex-girlfriend cutout head in an effort to distract an opposing player.

CSN Bay Area’s Casey Pratt shared a photo prior to ALDS Game 5 between the A’s and Detroit Tigers on Thursday that shows a few A’s fans holding a cutout of Kate Upton:

CBS Sports’ Scott Miller also shared a photo of the fans behind the Tigers dugout:

Best pajama party ever?

Kate Upton is on the cover of Vanity Fair magazine, so Katherine Webb, girlfriend of Alabama quarterback AJ McCarron, decided to congratulate her fellow SI swimsuit model on the accomplishment.

Katherine Webb and Katherine Upton … together in the same room … ordering room service … and having a pajama party? Oh, I dunno, possibly two of the most attractive Katherines of all time? If you’re having a bad day, just think of that visual for a moment and I promise you it will get better.

Oh, and Upton’s not the only one of the two to score a cover recently. Here’s Webb with McCarron’s mother DeeDee Bonner on the cover of Access:
