New York: Rapper Kanye West has been spotted getting flirtatious with Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue beauty Kate Upton.

The star was caught sneaking in the back door at the Victoria``s Secret VIP Swim event at Club L in Los Angeles and sitting with impossibly attractive Upton, reports the New York Post.

A source said the two were seen flirting and left hand-in-hand through the back door to avoid paparazzi.
