Kate Upton’s rumored boyfriend Maksim Chmerkovskiy is reported to be returning to “Dancing with the Stars” – but is the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue cover model dating Chmerkovskiy or LA Clippers forward Blake Griffin?
Us Weekly reports that Chmerkovskiy, 33, my be returning for the upcoming 17th season of “Dancing with the Stars,” even though the dancer had previously said that he’s leaving the show.
"Maks is part of the family,” said ABC president of entertainment Paul Lee. "He may well be back. We love having him be part of the show."
This directly contradicts Chmerkovskiy’s February statement, "I just want to set the record straight to all of my amazing fans that I will unfortunately not be returning for this season of Dancing With the Stars.”
Could Kate Upton, 21, have something to do with Chmerkovskiy’s decision? The two are reportedly dating and were seen leaving the “Casting By” premiere in the same car to go on a dinner date last week.
“They seemed pretty open about their relationship,” a source said of the pair.
"They walked in holding hands. They weren't trying to hide the rumors they are together,” another source said.
However, neither star has confirmed the relationship, and Upton was linked to LA Clippers forward Blake Griffin earlier this summer.
E! Online reports that Upton and Griffin, 24, got "very cozy" at a restaurant in June.
A source said that Upton and Griffin "were cuddling and holding hands, although they were not seen making out. They seemed pretty cute together."
