Yankees barred Kate Upton from wearing a Tigers cap at Yankee Stadium

Yankees bar Kate Upton from wearing Tigers cap at Yankee Stadium

Remember that cute scene last week at Yankee Stadium, when New York was playing Detroit and Tiger pitcher Justin Verlander tossed a ball to his girlfriend, Kate Upton, who was sitting directly behind the Tiger dugout? Well, Upton's smile was covering a hidden pain.

You see, Upton used to be a big Yankee fan, until she started dating Verlander, and she switched her allegiance to the Tigers. So she was brokenhearted when the Yankees told her something before the game:

“I used to be a really big Yankees fan,” Upton said on "Live! with Kelly and Michael" on Friday, “But I’m sleeping with the enemy. My boyfriend plays for the Tigers. I had to pick a side. And I felt it too, when I walked in. The Yankees told me, ‘You’re not allowed to wear a Tigers hat. You’re not allowed to wear any Tigers gear.’ It’s like a bad breakup.”

So, yes, even mega-supermodels have their share of worries and heartaches. And let's not forget to save some anger for the Yankees. Really, asking people not to wear the opponent's cap at a game? Ridiculous.
