Rory McIlroy and Caroline Wozniacki have been a high-profile sports couple for two years. Now, it appears their relationship could be over due to this photo that Wozniacki posted of the golfer on Twitter:
Here’s what a source told the Independent, a tabloid full of gossip:
“Rory was very upset by it and even Serena Williams pointed out – albeit in a joking way – it was a pretty mean thing to do. There were a lot of tears. She still has her profile picture on her social-networking site set as the two of them in happier times, but I can tell you the pair are no longer an item.”
Looks like we’ve got our OMG golf moment of the year! Oh snap!
I sincerely hope the couple didn’t break up over this photo. If so that’s sad. McIlroy needs to learn how to take a joke. Perhaps, this was the proverbial straw that broke the camel’s back, who really knows? We’ll just have to wish them well in their future endeavours, if indeed they are broken up. (There have also been rumors to the contrary.)
Maybe McIlroy is blaming this relationship for his poor play on the golf course in 2013? After winning PGA Player of the Year in 2012, he fell off in a big way in 2013. He failed to win an event on the PGA tour and has now fallen to the number six spot on the world’s best golfer list. It will be interesting to see how he responds in 2014.
