Dancing With the Stars’ Maks Chmerkovskiy and Rumored Girlfriend Kate Upton Spotted in NYC (PHOTOS)

Maksim Chmerkovskiy has been keeping the rumor mill busy this summer, with talks of a summer romance brewing between him and Sports Illustrated model Kate Upton.

Us Weekly reported last month that Maks, 33, is dating Kate Upton, 21, and that insiders said, “they were set up through friends. They just started dating.” While sources close to the duo denied the rumors and said they are just friends, we couldn't help but notice that Maks and Kate were spotted out on the town together just last night (July 30).
