When a report surfaced the other day that former Dancing With the Stars pro Maks Chmerkovskiy was dating 21-year-old model Kate Upton, we were devastated. Though we want our fav dancer to be happy, the idea of him settling down was upsetting — we want a chance, too!

Thankfully, the rumors are now quashed. Two close sources told E! News that they “are just good friends” and that they’ve “heard nothing about them dating.” Twist!

Apparently whoever saw them “canoodling” at a New York City restaurant needs a pair of glasses, because management at the Upper East Side restaurant Scalinatella claims that Kate’s birthday dinner did “not look intimate at all.”

We have to admit that the pair would have made an attractive couple, but we can breathe easy knowing that Maks is still on the market. Now we’ll just be waiting anxiously until he returns to the DWTS stage and per usual, takes his shirt off and makes us swoon. Season 17? Fingers crossed.

Are you surprised that Maks and Kate are reportedly “just friends”? Sound off below!
