Kate Upton and Justin Verlander spotted together at Philadelphia Flyers game (photos)


While Kate Upton being spotted seated courtside at a New York Knicks game last week may have generated a bit of a buzz on the interwebs, her most recent appearance at a professional sporting event is sure to get the Internet whipped up into a frenzy? Why? Because of the high-profile nature of her escort as well as their history together.

During a Philadelphia Flyers game at Wells Fargo Center over the weekend — which appears to be Saturday’s matinee against the Tampa Bay Lightning, according to the timing of the tweets — Miss Upton was seen seated in some box seats alongside Detroit Tigers ace Justin Verlander.

Of course, the sports world was captivated by the relationship that blossomed between the two lat year, despite Upton’s frequent denials that the two were an item. Verlander followed suit on the denials of a budding romance, although the pitcher’s grandfather appeared to let the cat out of the bag about the relationship to a gossip magazine.

The relationship appeared to be over after Upton tweeted a dig at the Cy Young Award winner in June. Upton went on to other high-profile dating partners, including “Dancing With The Stars,” um, star Maksim Chmerkovskiy, who Upton briefly dated last year, although the two apparently split up recently.

But there were the two, seated next to each other at the Flyers game. Twitter exploded with tweets about the sighting, and thankfully, some intrepid  fans seated near the two had the wherewithal to snap a couple of photos.

Well done, Twitter Nation. Odds are these sneaky photos will be followed by additional shots of Upton and Verlander canoodling in other locales, but for now, these are the best that we got.

So, are they back together? Only time will tell.
