Kate Upton was spotted with Maksim - or someone who looks like Maksim - at a New York eatery this week.
It's a question that's been on our minds all week. Is Kate Upton dating Dancing with the Stars professional Maksim Chmerkovskiy? The duo were apparently spotted enjoying each other's company at Scalinatella in New York City this week, though management at the Upper East Side eatery debunked reports of a relationship and told E! news that their dinner "did not look intimate at all."
Meanwhile, a source told E! News that the two "are just good friends" while a second source close to Maksim said they've "heard nothing about them dating." Anyhow, the restaurant in New York couldn't even confirm that it was the dancer with the buxom Vogue cover model though did note that the two dinner guests appeared "just friends."
Upton - now one of the world's most popular models - has remained mum on her dating life in recent years, though vehemently denied she was dating Detroit Tigers pitcher Justin Verlander during a Fox News interview back in February. Past reports have linked Kate to Sean 'P Diddy' Combs, Kanye West, football ace Mark Sanchez and even Never Back Down actor Sean Faris.

After months of waiting, the pairings for Dancing With The Stars' forthcoming season have been finalized. As many will know by now, the new season is a special 'all-star' instalment, meaning, former winners of the show have been invited back to compete for the title of champion-of-champions.
On Monday morning (August 13, 2012), ABC revealed the professional-celebrity teams, strangely giving five contestants an advantage by announcing repeat partnerships. Season three winner Emmitt Smith will once again dance with Cheryl Burke, while Kirstie Alley will once again strike up her successful partnership with Maksim Chmerkovskiy. Bristol Palin - who surprisingly made it through to the final of season eleven - will team up with Mark Ballas, whom many consider to be one of the most accomplished dancers on the show. So it looks as though the new couplings have it all to do, and they include Kelly Monaco with Val Chmerkovskiy, Shawn Johnson with Derek Hough and Apolo Anton Ohno with Karina Smirnoff.
