Ladies, brace yourself — Dancing With the Stars pro Maksim Chmerkovskiy may be off the market.

According to a new report from Us Weekly, Maks, 33, is dating Kate Upton, 21, the Sports Illustrated model who graces the cover of this month’s Vogue. “It’s very new,” multiple insiders tell the magazine. “They were set up through friends. They just started dating.”

When they reached out to the alleged couple’s reps, both had no comment, and a source close to Kate says they are not dating — they’re “just good friends” who have known each other for a long time. On the flip side, another source claims they were “very canoodly” during her birthday dinner on June 10 in New York City, apparently arriving late and holding hands during a “very intimate meal.”

Until we see it for ourselves, we refuse to believe that Maks is dating with a new gal. We want him to be happy, but we’d rather still think we have a shot with the DWTS favorite.

Do you think that Maks and Kate are dating? Sound off below.
