Maybe Kate Upton and Justin Verlander are not an item, after all.
At least that’s what E! News is reporting -- exclusively!
The supermodel and Tigers pitcher were photographed together Saturday during an NHL Flyers game -- Verlander’s core muscle repair surgery took place in Philadelphia -- leading to speculation that they were dating again.
"Kate and Justin are not back together," a source close to Upton told E! News. The source added that Verlander asked Upton to visit him before his surgery.
"She wanted to be there for him," the source said.
