Rumors have been flying wild that super sexy Sports Illustrated cover girl Kate Upton and rapper Diddy (formerly known as Sean Combs, P.Diddy, Puff Daddy, Puffy, and about a million other names) have been hot and heavy together. The New York Daily News reported that the duo was seen kissing it up in Miami late last month together, and then again this past week in New York.
It would be an interesting match I suppose. Not one I'd have ever guessed, as she's tended to go for athletes in the past (baseball player Justin Verlander was her last reported romance), and there is quite an age difference (she's 20 and he's 43). But it's also not one that's totally unbelievable.
Well, unless you ask Upton and Diddy, who both came out today adamantly denying anything going on between the two of them.
Upton tweeted earlier today:
Diddy denied it via Twitter as well:
Attention all Media. I don't even know Kate Upton personally! I'm not dating her ! What's being reported is not true. END of story!
Okay, okay, we believe you ... I think. But even if they're telling the truth, it doesn't mean this has to be the end of the story. Once that idea is planted who knows what could blossom here.
Now they have this "thing". They've been rumored to be together, so it's a good excuse to talk, chat, hook up whatever if they're in the same place. Maybe they'd never really considered one another for romance, and this will plant the seed that gets them thinking about one another that way.
Or, maybe they're just lying. You know the saying, "thou doth protest too much." Sure, sometimes rumors spring out of thin air, but more often than not, they usually start with at least a little bit of truth. It certainly would not be the first time a Hollywood couple has denied something we later find out to be true.
What do you think of Kate Upton and Diddy as a couple? Do you think there's really something going on between them?
