P. Diddy is reportedly dating Kate Upton.

The 43-year-old rap mogul was apparently seen kissing the Sports illustrated Swimsuit Issue model - who confirmed in February she had split from Detroit Tigers pitcher Justin Verlander - at Miami Beach nightspot Club LIV late last month

The pair were partying in the VIP section at a bash being held by the I'll be Missing You writer.

A source told the New York Daily News newspaper: "They were kissing, they weren't hiding it."

The public display of affection was reportedly followed by a night out in New York last week, with the rapper sharing an intimate meal with the 20-year-old beauty at Gemma in the Bowery Hotel.

An onlooker said: "They were having dinner together."

Diddy was most recently romantically linked with singer Cassie, and though they were seen house-hunting together in Beverly Hills in January, it is believed they are no longer together.

A spokesperson for Upton insisted she and Diddy - whose real name is Sean Combs - are not romantically involved.

They said: "They met once a year ago and there's no further relationship at this point."
