Who is Kate Upton reported to be getting close to now? The Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue cover girl broke things off with her former boyfriend, baseball player  Justin Verlander, and was recently rumored to be seeing "Dancing with the Stars' pro Maksim Chmerkovskiy.

However, E! News says she may be cozying up to someone else. Upton was reportedly seen with Los Angeles Clippers star Blake Griffin at a New York City hotspot, Beauty & Essex, Wednesday (June 19). A source says Blake showed up with a group of friends around 10:30 p.m. and was joined by Kate an hour later.

The group dined on lobster tacos and empanadas, while Blake's friends partook in some tequila shots. Blake and Kate, though, were seen "cuddling and holding hands" through the night. There was no making out, but the source says they "seemed pretty cute together."

Once they were done, the crew ended up at a night club, where they stayed until closing time.
