Is Kate Upton Dating Mark Sanchez?
Sports Illustrated's Kate Upton still refuses to confirm or deny those pesky rumors romantically linking her to New York Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez.
She'll never tell!
The Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue cover girl stopped by The Ellen DeGeneres Show Thursday, where she was grilled about her supposed romance with the pro baller in typical El fashion.
Whispers that Sanchez and the curvaceous teen model are an item first surfaced in December. The football ace has been paying frequent visits to Upton's Flatiron apartment since November, usually after a game or before practice, tittle tattles tell The New York Post.
"They never come in together. He's always five steps after her," one insider dished.
Another source insisted the two are "just friends."
Kate's never spoken publicly about the rumored romance, but gushed about being a huge Jets fan in a 2011 chat with USA Today.
"I'm a really big New York Jets fan because my sister works for them. I've learned to love the games. I watch every single one. I really enjoy it…"
For being such a good sport about the ribbing, Ellen offered Kate, formerly a competitive equestrian, a new pair of riding pants as a parting gift.
