Los Angeles: After a supposed romance with baseball player Justin Verlander, Sports Illustrated model Kate Upton is now reportedly dating NBA star Blake Griffin.
The 21-year-old stunner was spotted hanging out with the pro-baller and his friends at New York City hot spot Beauty & Essex, reported Ace Showbiz.
A source said Upton met Griffin, who was with a group of friends which included Beauty & Essex staffers, just before midnight, engaging in chit-chat over Mexican food and tequila shots.
The two were reportedly "cuddling and holding hands" and appeared "very cozy" with each other, although they were not seen making out.
The pair, which the source says "seemed pretty cute together," apparently was enjoying each other`s company as they and their crew later moved to the Avenue nightclub which they "closed down."
