It's no secret that Kate Upton is dating Detroit Tigers pitcher Justin Verlander, which made her recent situation with the New York Yankees quite interesting.

While filling in as a co-host for Kelly Ripa on Live! With Kelly and Michael, Upton was asked multiple questions by Michael Strahan.

Upton admitted to being a Yankees fan but mentioned that the organization would not let her wear any Tigers gear at the stadium when she went to watch Verlander play.

“They specifically told me, the Yankees told me, they’re like, ‘You’re not allowed to wear a Tigers hat,'" Upton told Strahan.  "'You’re not allowed to wear any Tigers gear.’ It’s like a bad breakup.”
