Kate Upton and Diddy aren't an item, they say. (Stephen Lovekin / Ronald…)
Kate Upton and Diddy are not dating despite reports linking the two ultra-famous individuals.
Upton, who broke up with Detroit Tigers Pitcher Justin Verlander around Valentine's Day, was said to be spotted kissing music mogul Sean "Diddy" Combs and "not hiding it" at a party he was hosting at Miami's Liv club March 24, according to the New York Daily News.
The Sports Illustrated cover girl took to Twitter on Wednesday to debunk the viral reports that she and Diddy had been seen out together
"Really??? Not at all true.." the 20-year-old wrote in response to a tweet saying they were dining out -- to put it in a family friendly way.
And Diddy, 43, didn't take the report sitting down either.
"Attention all Media. I don't even know Kate Upton personally! I'm not dating her ! What's being reported is not true. END of story!" he wrote.
Ever the opportunist, he did use the added attention to his Twitter account to plug his latest act.
"ATTENTION MEDIA! YOU KNOW WHAT IS TRUE THOUGH? @CassieSuper NEW MIXTAPE #ROCKABYEBABY COMES OUT TOMORROW ON http://DATPIFF.COM BANG BANG," he added.
And there you have it.
Though we must say, we were rather fond of the moniker "DiddyUp."
