Los Angeles Clippers power forward Blake Griffin and 2013 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition cover model Kate Upton reportedly got “very cozy” at a New York City hot spot.
E! News reports that Griffin, 24, and teammate DeAndre Jordan met a group of friends at Beauty & Essex around 10:30 p.m. Wednesday. An hour later, Upton walked in to join Griffin and his friends.
A source said that Griffin and Upton had a “great time” and “were cuddling and holding hands, although they were not seen making out. They seemed pretty cute together.”
Griffin and Upton’s night on the town occurred on the same day that Upton slighted her ex-boyfriend, Detroit Tigers pitcher Justin Verlander, in this tweet to Verlander’s best friend, Frank Viola III.
Meantime, at Beauty & Essex, Griffin and Upton ate empanadas, lobster tacos and stuffed peppers. Griffin’s friends reportedly downed shots of Don Julio Tequila.
Later Griffin, Upton and the group headed to Avenue nightclub, where “they closed the place down.”
It sure sounds like Griffin and Upton had a great time.
