Is it the beginning of a new celebrity couple, or just another tabloid rumor? Sean “Diddy” Combs and Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue cover girl Kate Upton were reportedly spotted kissing in late March, according to the NY Daily News. The pair were seen getting close at a Miami nightclub where Diddy was hosting a party.
Next, the paper claims Upton and Diddy were seen having dinner in New York on Thursday (April 4). A source says they shared a meal at Gemma in the Bowery Hotel.
However, in the age of social media, it’s easy to end rumors. Both Upton and Diddy addressed the reports on their Twitter accounts. Kate responded with a simple “Not at all true,” while Diddy said a bit more. “Attention all Media. I don’t even know Kate Upton personally! I’m not dating her! What’s being reported is not true. END of story,” he tweets. That message was followed by five more tweets, all promoting a new mixtape from his girlfriend Cassie.
Though she reportedly broke up with boyfriend Justin Verlander, of the Detroit Tigers, Upton’s kept plenty busy. When not modeling or promoting her Sports Illustrated cover, she’s been able to do fun things like dancing on stage with Flo Rida at corporate events.
