Justin Verlander: I Might Be Dating Kate Upton Or I Might Not

Come on, Verlander, you mean to tell us that you might not be dating Kate Upton but we’ve sat here and documented like a half-dozen instances of you romancing America’s 20-year-old darling?

According to today’s Detroit Free Press, JV won’t come clean:

Is he really dating supermodel Kate Upton?

“I’m not confirming or denying anything,” Verlander says, laughing and acknowledging that even his teammates are curious. “I’ll leave that to my grandfather. God bless him.”

It was Richard Verlander Sr., 87, who confirmed to Celebuzz this month that his grandson was dating Upton, the Sports Illustrated cover girl. Detroit’s most eligible bachelor just got a little more difficult to conquer.

“I never thought I’d have to prepare my grandfather for the media,” Verlander tells USA TODAY Sports.

Again, we provide the evidence. Be proud, my man. Enjoy the ride. Give greasy Detroit losers hope. Give those guys working on the assembly line a dream instead of going home to a greasy wife who bitches about him watching the Tigers and Lions.
