Despite reports of on-set 'diva' behavior, Kate Upton has landed Sports Illustrated's coveted cover for the third time.
The 24-year-old model was revealed as the star of the 2017 edition on "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" and the issue was immediately projected onto the Empire State Building in New York.
The 2017 edition marks the third time that Kate has starred on the cover and to recognize that, there will be three different versions celebrating her famed curves.
The magazine helped launch Kate's career when she first appeared in 2011 and was named Rookie of the Year honor. She went on to land the cover back-to-back in 2012 and 2013.Kate told Jimmy Kimmel that she only found out on Monday that she had once again made the cover.
(NY Post Page Six reported that she had been cut after her alleged diva-like demands became too much to handle.)
