It’s not unusual to find the word “bare” and Kate Upton in the same sentence, but “beer” linked to the 20-year-old SI swimsuit model? Now that’s a whole different ballgame. The “beer-gate” story began last week when the bikini wunderkind, while attending a Tigers game as pitcher
Justin Verlander’s guest, was spotted sipping from a plastic beer cup. A representative for the underage model reportedly has denied that she was drinking an alcoholic beverage.
