Just like the last time the Irish Independent reported it was Splitsville for Rory McIlroy and Caroline Wozniacki, at least one half of Wozzilroy insists the publication got it wrong.
The 23-year-old Wozniacki told a Danish newspaper that she and McIlroy are still an item.
“I’m so tired of the rumors,” Wozniacki said to Ekstra Bladet in Denmark. “They occur every time Rory and I are apart a few days or do not write on Twitter. There is nothing in it, and from now on I just think that I will keep my private life private.
“It is so annoying that the media and the so-called sources to constantly spread the kind. The writing’s just what they want.”
Wozniacki went on to say, “All is well, and then there’s not much more to say about it. I just want to be allowed to live my life off the court without all the speculation.”
On Sunday, the Irish Independent reported for the second time in two months that the couple had split. This time, the paper said a photo Wozniacki tweeted of the former world No. 1 snoozing in his glasses was what set off the end of their relationship because of the ribbing he received.
Both Irish Independent reports cited independent sources close to the couple. So either the rouse continues or the Irish Independent has some lousy sources.
Last time, the couple’s response to the break-up rumors was to post pictures together on Twitter and jointly rib the paper’s sources for being wrong “99.9 percent” of the time. This time, there’s been no such collaborative response. On Monday, McIlroy began a tour of Asia and hasn’t tweeted in three days. Wozniacki hasn’t responded via Twitter either.
McIlroy has better things to worry about aside from the rumor mill, including the start of legal action in Ireland between him and former management firm Horizon Sports Management. Both are suing each other in the wake of their much more costly recent break up.
