Justin Verlander's girlfriend Emily Yuen

UPDATE: 09/04/2012: It looks increasingly like Justin Verlander's girlfriend Emily Yuen is no longer his girlfriend. After reports broke earlier this year that Justin Verlander was dating Kate Upton many wondered what happened with him and Yuen. Unconfirmed reports have been trickling in that Yuen was spotted moving out of the couple's homes together and has returned to Virginia without him. Verlander and Upton have been spotted together repeatedly since initial reports, but no further comments from either party. Keep it tuned here for more as it develops.

There seems to be a correlation between the best players in professional sports, and the stability of their home lives. We've seen it time and again that when a player has a calm, stable household off the field, they maintain that same steady performance on the field. Justin Verlander, aka, the best pitcher in baseball, helps to prove that theory.

Justin Verlander's girlfriend Emily Yuen has helped to provide that stability. The couple has been dating since they attended Goochland High School in Virginia together. They continued dating through years at Old Dominion University and are still together now. In what would bring this author to his knees, Yuen is so close with Verlander's mother that she's previously admitted publicly that she calls his mother at least once daily. I'm sorry,... but a dude's worlds colliding that badly is just about the scariest thought imaginable.

The couple makes efforts to stay out of the limelight as much as possible, but that proved impossible with the cameras clicking following Verlander's no-hitter. As any devoted (terrified? whipped?) boyfriend would do, Verlander trudged over to the stands to celebrate with Yuen, and the couple was spotted embracing. Off the field, the two are known to spend down time hanging out in video arcades.

The couple is not married, but stay together year round. The two spend much of the offseason in Lakeland, FL near the Tigers spring training facility.

    Emily is as sweet and friendly as she is beautiful. She was very helpful to Fu-Te Ni's wife or girlfriend when she visited the road hotel and is always helping the wives with children. Just a great person. And Justin is a class act also.

    Aww they seem like such a sweet couple. It's refreshing to hear that they've been together since high school. So rare, hope this couple lasts.

    This dude is a scumbag and no different than any other overpaid athlete.. He wrecked my relationship and fucked my girlfriend. I got the texts messages and his phone number to prove it.

    I wonder what she thinks about him going out with Kate Upton for a concert and drinks?

    I'm guessing Emily is not thrilled that Justin has been hanging out with Kate Upton on several nights recently... kinda sad.

    hey anonnymous 4/1/12,
    Your anger should be directed at your girlfriend....she could have turned Verlander down if she wanted to, but obviously she didn't value your relationship enough. It takes two to tango as they say.

    sad she had to move out of their 8 bedroom home in Goochland VA (burb of Richmond) to make room for the titty queen

    Hold your head high, remember the good times and move on. The overpaid players are just that, players, you are lucky you weren't married with children like so many are.

    Hey Emily,
    If you still love JV hang on t him, if you don't then let him go, and remain good freind. You can still love him as a freind.

    Yeah, a "friend." Stuck in the FriendZone for over 10 yrs since high school. No wedding proposal. Girl shoulda known but may have been led on. Dumped for uber Barbie. Yeah I can still be "friends" after that.

    JV left a hot woman for a skanky lil girl. Haaaa titty queen. Thats all she's got going for her. Kate upton needs to try and keep her clothes on and have some class.

    Justin Verlander and Kate Upton are completely insane. Upton is so very uneducated. If you ever watch interviews of her she is so immature, all she does is giggle and say "My family is such huge sports fans". She will be done in a year, take verlander for everything she can, hopefully not a baby, then she will be on to the next rich athlete. As for Verlander, he will end up with a broken heart, a taste of his own medicine for what he did to Emily.

    Justin can do whatever the hell he wants as long as he keeps raking in 17+ win seasons. Emily, Kate, who cares. it's his life, and all of you need to butt the hell out and fix your own shit.

    As of December 2013 Kate Upton and Justin are back together. She was with him and his family in Philadelphia when he had core muscle surgery in early 2014. Justin then was spotted at Tampa's Gasparilla Festival with Kate where they were pictured by many fans. The two seemed to "go public" with their relationship at the 2014 Superbowl in NYC which both of their families attended with them.

    Kate has since been keeping it low key with Justin in Lakeland where she's been spotted with him around town during spring training, including at a couple Orlando Magic games. Justin when asked about Kate said he's in "a great spot".

    I feel bad for her, but there is always two sides to the story. It just wasn't meant to be Emily and Justin, and he will, maybe get tired of Kate, but I dont think he will break her heart, because she will probably break his! She's only 20! She's still a baby. And, with her body, which makes her money, she better keep it up, because she looks like she has the type of body that can get fat very easily! Maybe a summer fling for the both if them!
