Rory, Caroline dispute breakup reports

Posted at 10:58 AM by Mike Walker | Categories: Caroline Wozniacki, Rory McIlroy

Rory_carolineRory McIlroy and Caroline Wozniacki, the glamor couple of the sporting world who have dated since 2011, are splitsville, according to the Irish Independent.

The sad break-up has been described as "very difficult" for the couple, but in particular for Wozniacki who was besotted with the 24-year-old golfer. They had been dating since they met at a boxing match in Germany in 2011 and their very public romance charmed the world.

The twice major winner is believed to have initiated the split, but has stopped short of making the news public.

A source close to McIlroy told the Sunday Independent yesterday: "They're done, it's over." He was asked by the New York Post on Friday about the relationship, following his second round at The Barclays event in New Jersey.

However, instead of announcing any break-up, he said: "Uh-huh, yeah, it's all good. Just because we changed our Twitter profile picture doesn't mean that we're not together. But yeah, it's all good."

Of course, this report is not the first time newspapers have reported on a McIlroy-Wozniacki breakup and those earlier reports were proven wrong. McIlroy sent out a tweet on Sunday morning that advised his followers to take what they read with a grain of salt:

Wozniacki restored Rory to her Twitter profile picture and followed up with a message of her own Sunday afternoon.
