Caroline Wozniacki Dumped By Rory McIlroyBy: Kelly Weidman - May 22, 2014
The wedding of tennis star Caroline Wozniacki was called off yesterday only days after wedding invitations were sent, announced by her former fiance Rory McIlroy at a press conference.
“The wedding invitations issued at the weekend made me realize that I wasn’t ready for all that marriage entails” said McIlroy. While the couple maintain the split was “mutual and amicable and we both thought it was the best for us,” McIlroy also stated, “The problem is all mine.”
The couple, who have been together for two years and were officially engaged on New Year’s Day, demonstrated no signs of a split before their shocking announcement. In fact, Wozniacki made her plans to have children with McIlroy public only last month.
When interviewed for Danish magazine Lime, Wozniacki stated “I want to be a relatively young mother, and I do not see it as being too far in the future. I have always been like that. I would want to bring up my children. Therefore, I have no dream to make my mark. Instead, I enjoy economic freedom my hard work has given me. It means that I can give my children the best start in life.”
This past Sunday McIlroy posted a photo of the pair having dinner at Nobu Monte Carlo, his public display of affection for Wozniacki only adding to the abrupt feel of the breakup.
The wedding, set for November 8th, was rumored to include high-profile athletes and celebrities, including former United States President Bill Clinton and most likely fellow tennis star Serena Williams, who tweeted her support for Wozniacki this morning.
While the two likely have many difficult and emotional days ahead of them, it seems Wozniacki will face them with a sense of humor. She managed to get a little dig in to McIlroy on Saturday, when she tweeted support for Liverpool. McIlroy is a very ardent and public Manchester United fan. That’ll sure show ’em, Wozniacki. Good move.
