A representative for American model Kate Upton has dismissed rumours linking the blonde beauty to rapper Sean '' Combs.

Reports emerged on Wednesday (10Apr13) suggesting the hip-hop mogul had struck up a relationship with Upton, and that they had been seen kissing at a recent event in Miami, Florida, and enjoying dinner together in New York last week (ends07Apr13).

However, a representative for Upton has moved quickly to dispel rumours of a secret romance, telling the New York Daily News, "They met once a year ago and there's no further relationship at this point."
