Drama in paradise!
Reports have come out that Kate Upton has cost herself the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue cover by being too much of a high-maintenance diva.

The 24-year-old would have been on one of three covers, with the other two going to Serena Williams and Christie Brinkley.
A source said:
"There was drama. Kate demanded that if she did the shoot, that she absolutely must get the cover."
Reportedly, Kate also came with a "list of photographers and hair and makeup people she would only work with."
The supermodel famously covered the issue in 2013 in Antarctica, after making her debut on the cover in 2012. She also had the back cover of the mag in 2014. That's three years in a row!
Maybe that's why she's being so demanding this time.

Leg and cleavage goals right here!
Gwyneth Paltrow and Kate Upton showed off their best assets at the LACMA Art + Film Gala in LA Sunday night in their respective outfits.

Both gorgeous ladies wore Gucci, which was also an event sponsor for the evening, with Gwynnie in a thigh-length black dress with humongous tiered ruffle sleeves. We're not gonna lie; it was giving us clown/court jester vibes.
Kate went the sleeker route in a black gown with buttoned back and square neckline that revealed her ample bosom.
She nailed it!

And she looks FIT AF!
The 24-year-old talks both body image and bullying in the accompanying interview, revealing some very interesting tidbits.
The truth is, she's no stranger to being body shamed:
"I knew nothing about fashion growing up, because in Florida you just wear bikinis and flip-flops. But kids can be cruel, and they used to make fun of me for having long legs and bushy eyebrows. My mom would flip through magazines and say, 'Look, all these models have that too.' I decided I wanted to be a model."
She also admits that in the beginning of her career she was told to lose weight:
"[They said it] All. The. Time. At first I tried to diet to become their image, but eventually I realized that it wasn't realistic—that this is just the shape of my body. So I had to block them out. I think that the people who are the loudest about wanting to change you are the people with the least amount of vision and creativity."
Her confidence to be herself came from her upbringing as well as from good feedback in other ways:
So. Much. Shade.
Kate Upton may have just (re)started a feud with the Kardashian clan after posting a controversial selfie to Snapchat on Tuesday!
Posing with pouted lips, the model joked about looking like a member of the reality TV famous family… "nose job and all."

We're not sure Kim Kardashian, Khloe Kardashian, or Kourtney Kardashian will appreciate the plastic surgery claims, especially since they work so hard to deny them.
But maybe Kate is still holding onto some hurt feelings after Kanye West seriously dissed her back in 2013! In case you don't remember, the rapper said the Sports Illustrated star doesn't deserve to be called the next Marilyn Monroe over his wife.
