Caroline Wozniacki denies rumors that Rory McIlroy dumped her over photo


The news that Rory McIlroy and Caroline Wozniacki had broken up seemed at first to indicate, given the allegations as to why he had dumped her, that the young golf phenom was a bit of a jerk.

The Irish Independent reported over the weekend that McIlroy unceremoniously dumped his tennis star gal pal because he was miffed that she posted the above photo of him taking a snooze online via her Twitter account back in September.

According to a source, “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.”

The initial report indicated that Wozniacki was “devastated” over the breakup but there were no comments made by either Rory or Caroline that corroborated the allegations of a split.

That is until Monday. Wozniacki, in comments made to Danish newspaper Ekstra Bladet, vehemently denied the reports, condemning the rumor-mongering and admitting she has grown tired of dealing with such rampant gossip about the status of her relationship with McIlroy.

Said Wozniacki, as translated by Google Translate (via For the Win):

“I’m so tired of the rumors. 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 constantly spread the rumors. They write just what they want.

“[…] All is well [with the relationship], 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.”

So there you have it. The couple are still an item, at least according to Wozniacki. No official word as of yet from McIlroy, though.

But are Wozniacki’s comments simply a case of a young woman being in state of denial over the ruinous end of a long-term relationship? Has McIlroy had enough? Will they stay together forever? Are they still together? Do we care? I guess we do, at least a little bit. We are talking about Wozzilroy, after all. That’s a pretty nifty couple mash-up moniker. Hate to see it disappear.
