According to the New York Times, Rory McIlroy managed to break up with his fiancee, Caroline Wozniacki. A report from The Times of London says it happened over the phone in a three minute conversation.
“Caroline Wozniacki played tennis in a lovely old arena at Roland Garros yesterday but would rather have been in Belfast, asking Rory McIlroy to his face why he left her this way. Except that the last time he called, less than a day after telling her how much he loved her, it was a three-minute conversation she thought was a joke.”
News of the breakup broke when a statement from McIlroy said that they’re deciding to part ways.
“There is no right way to end a relationship that has been so important to two people. The problem is mine. The wedding invitations issued at the weekend made me realise that I wasn’t ready for all that marriage entails. I wish Caroline all the happiness she deserves and thank her for the great times we’ve had. I will not be saying anything more about our relationship in any setting.”
Wozniacki said the breakup came as “a bit of a shock,” which may be the understatement of the year seeing how she and her fiancee had just finished sending out wedding invitations.
