kate upton maksim chmerkovskiy pda dating gi Kate Upton: PDA with 'Dancing With the Stars' Maksim Chmerkovskiy

It’s not a rumor anymore: Kate Upton and Maksim Chmerkovskiy are definitely acting like they’re together. The Sports Illustrated model and “Dancing With the Stars” pro, who were first rumored to be together in June, were photographed holding hands in Manhattan.

PopSugar has a photo of the pair packing on the PDA while they’re walking around West Village. Considering Chmerkovskiy celebrated Upton’s 21st birthday with her, this doesn’t seem to be the just-friends type of handholding.

However, Upton still isn’t willing to let people know that she’s in a relationship. When Extra spoke to Upton at the 10th Annual Style Awards, she said of Chmerkovskiy, “We’re just friends.”

Maybe Upton and will Chmerkovskiy will be spotted in the “Dancing With the Stars” audience one of these episodes and really set all these relationship rumors to rest.
