After six months of dating, Sports Illustrated Swimsuit model Kate Upton and Dancing With the Stars alum Maskim Chmerkovskiy have recently split to go their separate ways, Us Weekly breaks the news first.
But a source connected to the former couple, told that the breakup reports are actually “a little over the top.” The source said that there was actually nothing that serious in Kate and Maks’ relationship. They were “more like friends-with-benefits than anything else.”
“Things actually fizzled out between them in September,” the insider explained. “Maks moved to L.A. for his acting career and Kate relocated to NYC. After that, they actually didn’t see very much of each other. There’s no hard feelings, I’m sure they’ll remain friendly.”
The 21-year-old supermodel and the 33-year-old dancer were reportedly dating back in June, and the couple was actually first photographed holding hands in public at the end of September.
And then just a month later, Chmerkovskiy called Upton an “amazing person” when asked about The Other Woman actress.
“She’s an amazing person,” Chmerkovskiy told Us Weekly at the Oct. 17 launch of his brother’s Valentin Clothing. “We have an incredible time together, and, you know, I definitely didn’t see that coming and I think neither did she. We enjoy each other’s company very much and like I said, she’s a great girl that I never thought anything romantic like this could have happened.”
