Kate Upton, Verlander 'Coziness' Confirmed

DETROIT (CBS Detroit) So, the rumors about the Tigers' Justin Verlander, 29, and superstar bikini model Kate Upton, 20, getting cozy in metro Detroit this weekend are true.

Staffers at Coyote Joe's in Shelby Township, at 22 Mile and Ryan, confirmed the duo were very chummy Thursday night after reportedly taking in an Aerosmith concert. Upton, a Michigan native, was also spotted dancing around in a Tigers hat in Verlander's suite at Comerica Park on Friday.

Verlander reportedly has a longtime girlfriend Emily Yuen, whom he's dated since his college days; it's unknown whether they're still together. But witnesses at Coyote Joe's said Upton was "hanging all over" the ace.

Per Tweets, the pair were with her pal, model Lizzy Glynn, and his friend Frank Viola, Jr. (son of Minnesota Twins' pitcher Frank Viola).

Glynn Tweeted at one point that they were at a bar with a mechanical bull, believed to be Toby Keith's I Love This Bar in Auburn Hills, and Glynn gave her pants to wear on the ride.

So, what do you think, could this be the hottest new couple in Detroit?
