In the fast-changing world of celebrity hookups, it’s rare that a star would take time out to correct a rumored mistake, but Diddy is taking a stand and doing it. The mogul is denying reports that he is dating Sports Illustrated model Kate Upton.
Diddy took to Twitter to set the record straight for fans and gossip-hounds alike. “Attn all Media. I don’t even know Kate Upton personally! I’m not dating her!” he tweeted. “What’s being reported is not true. END of story!”
Earlier reports surfaced that Diddy was spotted making out with Upton at a New York City restaurant last week. Ever since then, the Internet has been ablaze with sightings and alleged public displays of affection.
It appears to be a denial on both sides of the fence. A representative for Upton confirmed the non-relationship by adding that the pair “barely know each other” and “they are definitely not dating.”
