Mark Sanchez’s Football Woes Blamed On Supermodel Kate Upton
When an athlete’s sporting prowess is dimmed it’s often blamed on the girl they’re dating at the time. Jessica Simpson did it for Tony Romo and now New York Jets player Mark Sanchez is being taunted for his attachment to rising model Kate Upton.
SportsIllustrated.com describes the romance as “Better Than A Superbowl Ring” and while Sanchez may be preparing for a big game against the Giants on Christmas Eve, it appears he’s also spending significant time courting the teenage blonde bombshell (Upton is just 19).
According to the New York Post:
Sanchez has been paying frequent late-night visits to the Victoria’s Secret and Sports Illustrated swimsuit model’s Flatiron apartment. He’s been spotted several times at the voluptuous blonde’s pad since November, usually after games or before practices—sometimes as late as midnight—rolling up in his black chauffeur-driven Navigator.
Sanchez was even seen in Upton’s building lobby carrying gifts for her after he attended a charity event early last month. On another occasion, Sanchez was spotted coming into the building with bags a minute or two after Upton arrived.
Previously linked to Kanye West, the Victoria’s Secret model’s rep has declined to comment to media on her client’s personal life—as has Sanchez’s rep, who’s used to fending off calls about her star player’s high-profile love life (he’s been spotted with actresses Jamie-Lynn Sigler and Hayden Panettiere in the past).
