Long distance was what did in the ‘never that serious in the first place’ coupling of Kate Upton and Maksim Chmerkovskiy, Confidenti@l has learned.

We’ve learned the real reason Kate Upton is single again.

Confidenti@l reported last week that the Sports Illustrated model and her “Dancing With the Stars” pro, Maksim Chmerkovskiy, have parted ways after six months together. And it’s come to light exactly why the two didn’t want to tango together anymore.

“It was the distance. He travels and she travels, and it didn’t work out,” a pal of Upton’s tells us, adding that the two “were never that serious in the first place.”

“The fact of the matter is that she is a 21-year-old girl and Maks is 33,” says our insider. “She liked him and brought him to meet her parents at a football game. She invited him to a lot of family things. She got serious about him quickly, and he thinks she’s a good person. It just didn’t work.”

Our source says that Maks may have “panicked” when the curvy beauty went apartment-hunting in Manhattan’s Flatiron District in order to be in the vicinity of his place in nearby Fort Lee, N.J.

“Kate started to get the hint it was over and started to talk about breaking up with him,” says our source. “Then she thought Maks disinvited her to a wedding.”

Confidenti@l can reveal the two, who began dating in June, were kaput long before the public ever knew about it.

“They broke up before Thanksgiving,” says our insider. “He’s focused on his career and she’ll soon be going on a major press tour for ‘The Other Woman,’ ” says our source.

The ex-couple had met through mutual friends and were first snapped together publicly in June, when Maks took her to a 21st birthday dinner. In August, Maks took Upton home to meet his family in Huntington, L.I. They attended a get-together for Maks’ godmother’s 35th wedding anniversary.

The ex-couple have not spoken since they split.

Maks’ rep could not be reached for comment and Upton’s rep did not return a call for comment.

A busy travel schedule didn’t make it easy for Maksim Chmerkovskiy to keep the Upton relationship on track.

STILL THE LATEST THONG

Here’s one way to announce you’re still in love. Sofia Vergara has just shot down those never-ending rumors of a breakup from on-and-off fiancé Nick Loeb in her own special way — without saying a single word. The Latina bombshell posted a photo on Instagram of her flashing her large engagement ring and voluptuous backside. The Colombian bombshell, here wearing a very skimpy thong, wants everyone to see that she’s still with Loeb — and face it, one picture is worth tens of thousands of dull publicist-issued denials.

ZOE’S SPECIAL DELIVERY

Rachel Zoe and hubby Rodger Berman got the perfect holiday present. The fashionista gave birth to her second son, Kaius Jagger Berman, last week. “As loyal readers of The Zoe Report, I wanted you to be the first to see a picture of the beautiful new addition to our family, Kaius Jagger Berman, aka ‘Kai,’ ” she wrote on her website.

LIFE’S SPAINFUL FOR LOHAN DAD

From the desk of Michael Lohan comes a special (and poorly typed) Christmas wish: “Every morning when we wake up we can choose joy, happiness, negativity or pain … To feel the freedom that comes from being able to continue to make mistakes and make choices (whether they be right or wrong). Life is not about being perfect but striving to be as perfect as we can. … Love mean sacrifice and with sacrifice come Spain.” We’re assuming he means “pain.” But Spain would be perfect this time of year.

LILO GETS THE GOODS

Lindsay Lohan braved the freezing rain in layers for some last-minute Christmas shopping. The “Liz and Dick” star headed out late at night for some gifts she forgot for friends and family, we’re told. That’s what we call retail therapy.

MARIAH’S SLUSH FUN

Mariah Carey, hubby Nick Cannon and cute-as-pie twins Moroccan and Monroe headed out in the Aspen snow on their holiday break. The “All I Want for Christmas” diva was bundled up, unlike earlier in the week when she walked her doggie in the snow — clad in a hot red bikini.

RADIO CITY TUNES SOME OUT

If you are planning to enjoy the “Radio City Christmas Spectacular” this year, make sure you have tickets in hand before you arrive at the legendary venue. Security guards are allowing only one member of each clan to line up at the will-call window; the rest of the family must linger elsewhere. “Everyone else must wait in front,” Confidenti@l heard a security guard bark. One angry parent responded, “I will not leave my daughter alone on Sixth Ave.” Bah humbug!
