Blake Griffin is doing things right, man.
If you’ve become one of the biggest basketball stars in the world, you’re going to have plenty of chances at different women. We’ve seen Blake Griffin’s girlfriends in the past ranging from models, to models, and to,.. well,… models, and it appears he’s chasing the dream once again. Rumors began swirling during the week the basketball world turned it’s eyes to the Heat’s second NBA title, and the Doc-alypse Clippers drama, that Blake Griffin’s girlfriend is Kate Upton. Yes. Kate Upton.
According to E! News, Blake Griffin and Kate Upton were recently spotted “getting cozy,” at NYC hot spot Beauty & Essex. Blake and his friends, including DeAndre Jordan, were hanging out at the club when Upton showed up and joined the group. While the entire group dined on empanadas, stuffed peppers, lobster tacos and tequila shots, many bystanders happened to notice that Upton and Griffin were, “were cuddling and holding hands, although they were not seen making out. They seemed pretty cute together.”
This isn’t Upton’s first time being linked to a professional athlete. After having previously been linked to Mark Sanchez, Upton dated Tigers ace Justin Verlander for most of 2012. We’ll keep an eye on this one and see if it develops any further.
