Kate Upton made headlines as the new cover model for the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition.
The spot could make her one of the year's top models, which also has people asking whether she is single or not and she won't quite say.
Rumor has it that Kate Upton is currently dating the New York Jets Mark Sanchez. TMZ attempted to confirm those rumors by asking the model if she was currently single.
"What do you think?" Upton responded. Sanchez has also been recently linked to Kim Kardashian. It gets even more complicated than that however, as Kardashian has been rumored to be getting back with her ex-boyfriend, Reggie Bush.
Kardashian has denied the rumors that she is dating Sanchez.
"Dating rumors are always fun when u don't even know the people your supposedly linked to! Who makes this stuff up!" the reality star, 31, wrote on Twitter after rumors of the two surfaced. It doesn't appear however that she had denied the rumors about rekindling her romance with Reggie Bush.
Upton is also not being very helpful about clearing the air.
When TMZ churned up more specific questions and asked if the model was dating Mark Sanchez she responded "I don't know!" adding, "It's whatever you think!"
Upton and Sanchez have been linked together since December. The New York Post reported around Christmas that the two were spotted together at her apartment more than once.
A source told the post that Sanchez had helped her carry in Christmas presents around the holidays. "They never come in together. He's always five steps after her," the source added.
The reason as to why Kate Upton has remained so secretive about her possible relationship with Mark Sanchez is unknown.
