Kate Upton was reportedly being a diva about SI swimsuit cover
The 2017 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue arrives Monday, Feb. 13, which leaves almost a whole week for buzz about the covers. According to the New York Post, Christie Brinkley, who teased photos from her SI shoot with her daughters, Serena Williams and "possibly" Kate Upton appear to be the candidates for the magazine's top page. The questions around Kate's potential cover have to do with her rumored behavior regarding the shoot, the tab reports. "There was drama," says one source. "Kate demanded that if she did the shoot, that she absolutely must get the cover. She also had a list of photographers and hair and makeup people she would only work with." The insider also griped that Kate was "being a big … diva" and acted superior to others. The Post claimed it was unable to reach Kate's rep, while a spokesperson for Sports Illustrated said, "It's that time of year again. Who is in, who's on the cover, what will they do next? Everyone has a guess, and that's all this is." Kate appeared on the cover of the swimsuit issue in 2013 and 2012.
