Looking at what is taking place on social media, it seems that there is trouble in paradise for Paulina Gretzky and PGA star Dustin Johnson. The famed daughter of ice hockey legend Wayne Gretzky has been engaged to Johnson since 2013, however it might all be coming to an end... After five years as a couple and two children together, Gretzky has raised some concerns about her relationship status - especially when fans look at her Instagram account. She has indeed appear to have scrub any mention of Johnson from her Instagram account.
According to reports, U.S. Open champion Johnson’s newfound friendship with golf groupie Yassie Safai, 39, is being blamed for the split.
“It is the talk of the club that Yassie is at the centre of the split, and it has caused the Gretzky family a lot of heartache,” a source told the British newspaper.
While the pair had planned to marry in 2019, it seems that things might be taking a turn for the worse now. The Toronto Sun reports that Wayne Gretzky is reportedly furious over the split, particularly since he helped Johnson get back on his feet when he was in the depths of despair.
Paulina was also missing from the BMW Championship in Philadelphia, this week, while she is usually spotted at Johnson's competitions, which has only heated the speculation of a split of the famous couple.
Safai herself has denied she is at the centre of the split.
“I am not in a relationship with Dustin Johnson. Nor have we had any prior relationship,” Safai reportedly told TMZ. “I met Dustin Johnson at Sherwood Country Club. I have run into him at Sherwood maybe four times since then and yes briefly spoke with him, like I’m sure any avid golfer and member would.”
“I am sure he is a great person but we do not have a close friendship. I have never met Paulina Gretzky and do not know the Gretzky family, but again, I am sure they are great people,” she continued. “I have no insight into the rumours around Dustin Johnson and Paulina Gretzky’s relationship. I wish them nothing but the best. I just want to go back to living my normal life.”
A source reportedly told ET Canada Gretzky and Johnson have not split, but would not expand on why she removed his photos from Instagram...
