Kate Upton is everywhere. It seems I can't go a day without either seeing a new scandalous photo shoot or hearing about a new viral video starring the jiggly swimsuit model. She's taken the world by storm, and it seems we can't get enough. That's why, when rumors began swirling that she's seeing Justin Verlander of the Detroit Tigers, tongues began wagging everywhere.

The two met while filming a video ad for the MLB 2K12 video game, and Upton was recently spotted at one of his games, where she reportedly "hung all over him". No word yet from Verlander's longtime girlfriend, Emily Yuen, on whether or not the two are still together.

Despite that fact that the two haven't even been confirmed as a couple, Detroit fans are already whispering that she's the reason Verlander didn't play up to par on Tuesday night and are worried she'll jinx the pitcher, much like many people said Jessica Simpson did for Tony Romo. But Verlander insists he just tried too hard in the first inning and then lost steam.

"That's why I don't try to throw 100 [mph] in the first inning," he said. "Usually doesn't work out too well for me."

Upton has recently made headlines for her scantily-clad photo shoots for GQ, among other things.
