Kate Upton & Justin Verlander: New Year's in St. Thomas at the Ritz Carlton, According to a Report

By Jason McIntyre

Kate Upton and Justin Verlander, the long-rumored couple, are apparently dating, because a report claims the pair was spotted at the Ritz Carlton in St. Thomas on New Year’s Eve.

"The lovebirds were spotted enjoying the sun at the Ritz-Carlton on St. Thomas. Having been at the resort since before New Year’s Eve, Upton and Verlander have been seen going on walks around the grounds and by the pool. But one spy said they were keeping a low profile — “He keeps a conservative distance, but still you can tell they are dating.”"

Upton will probably try to deny this the way she denied dating the Tigers’ pitcher back in July, after she was spotted drinking in his box at a game. They met filming a video game commercial last February. Hey Kate, what will be your excuse in February when you’re hanging out in Lakeland, Florida? Just checking out real estate?

If you’re following them on twitter, you’re aware they both dropped a Happy New Year on Dec. 31st, but have offered nothing since. Sidenote: Those two tweets were re-tweeted over 1,100 times. [Page 6]
