(NEW YORK) — Kate Upton, the 19-year-old model who appears on the cover of the just-released Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue, is friends with New York Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez — and nothing more.
Us Weekly reports that Upton, whose sister works for the Jets, began hanging out with Sanchez about seven months ago. However, Upton denies to the online newspaper The Daily that she’s romantically involved with Sanchez.
