Sports Illustrated model Kate Upton and NBA hunk Blake Griffin are heating up the headlines. The two were spotted holding hands at a New York City hot spot.
A source told E!News that the model and Clippers forward got “very cozy” as they partied Wednesday night at NYC hot spot Beauty & Essex.

They seemed pretty cute together.”
The entire crew left Beauty & Essex to continue partying at Avenue nightclub, where an E!News source says “they closed the place down!”
