Kate Upton is dating Maksim Chmerkovskiy, according to E! News. The couple recently was caught on camera strolling down West Village neighborhood in New York City while holding hands. Kate and the former "Dancing with the Stars" pro were all smiles during the outing.
The 21-year-old model wore workout gear consisting of gray jacket and black pants, while Maksim wore a pink shirt and skinny jeans. He held a jacket in his left hand. The pair also sported chic sunglasses.
Reports of them dating emerged earlier this year, but a source told the news outlet that Kate and Maksim were "just good friends," while another source close to Maksim "heard nothing about them dating." When asked by reporters at the Style Awards earlier this month, Kate replied, "We're just friends."
