Nadia Forde denies she is dating Rory McIlroy

Nadia-Forde

Rory McIlroy broke off his engagement with Caroline Wozniacki less than three weeks ago, and the 25-year-old golfer has already found himself at the center of new relationship rumors. Various gossip reports have indicated that McIlroy may be dating Irish model and singer Nadia Forde.

Gambling websites have set odds for who McIlroy will date next, and Forde is one of the favorites at around 6-to-1. However, she firmly denied the rumors in an interview with the Irish Independent.

“No, no,” Forde said. “I wouldn’t be putting money on me if I was anyone at home. I’ve heard so many stories about myself with so many different people it just becomes laughable at this stage.”

Some have even speculated that Forde inspired McIlroy to break up with Woz.

“We have mutual friends, that’s it. We’ve met a few times,” she added. “I think I’m just being dragged into something that has nothing to do with me. … Nadia’s love life is pretty nonexistent at the moment, and that’s fine. It’s not my top priority.”

As we have learned with chatter surrounding the athlete-celebrity dating game, it can be extremely difficult to separate truth from fiction. McIlroy reportedly felt his relationship was hurting his golf game, so I doubt he’s going to jump into anything serious right away. My guess is golf is his main focus at the moment, especially with the US Open starting later this week.

Monica Seles marrying 72-year-old Tom Golisano

Monica-SelesFormer women’s tennis star Monica Seles officially retired in 2008, but that does not mean her bank account has stopped getting fatter. Believe it or not, Seles already had plenty of money before she got engaged to billionaire entrepreneur Tom Golisano.

Golisano, the 72-year-old founder of Paychex Inc., announced on Thursday that he and Seles are engaged to be married. Seles is only 40, but calling her a gold digger would make absolutely no sense.

Seles, a nine-time Grand Slam singles champion, made an estimated $75 million last year with successful stock investments, property holdings, endorsement deals, restaurants, a fashion line and even her own vodka. She has been dating Golisano for several years. Golisano has an estimated net worth of nearly $2 billion.

Can you say power couple? Golisano is one of a number of people who has expressed interest in buying the Buffalo Bills. Between that, his success with Paychex, and Seles’ variety of successful business ventures, we might even say Golisano and Seles are the most interesting couple in the world.

What’s up with Kate Upton and Maksim Chmerkovskiy?

Kate-Upton-singleLast we checked, Kate Upton and Detroit Tigers pitcher Justin Verlander were still in their puppy love phase. Heck, Verlander was caught staring at her like a 14-year-old who just saw his first pair of bing-bongs just a couple weeks ago at a hockey game. So what’s this chatter about Upton and “Dancing With the Stars” pro Maksim Chmerkovskiy?

Upton and Chmerkovskiy dated for a while but broke up late last year. However, Chmerkoviskiy posted a photo on Instagram Sunday of him with Upton draped around his neck. The photo was supposedly taken at Tao in New York City.

That could very well have been an old photo, and Chmerkoviskiy may have sent it out by mistake. If not, it looks like the former couple has maintained a solid relationship through their split. And if Verlander and Upton are still going steady, he probably wouldn’t be happy about Miss Kate hanging out with her ex.

Yeah, it was probably an old picture.

Report: V. Stiviano assaulted by two men in New York

Donald Sterling girlfriend V StivianoV. Stiviano was allegedly assaulted by two men outside a hotel in New York on Sunday night, according to her agent. Stiviano’s attorney Mac Nehoray told CNN that Stiviano was leaving a restaurant near the Ganesvoort Hotel with her sister and friends when two men followed her and began yelling racial slurs.

Nehoray claims the men punched Stiviano several times and left her with swelling and redness on the right side of her face. He also said she is likely to file a police report on Monday.

As you know, Stiviano is responsible for the audio recording that exposed Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling as a racist and resulted in him being banned from the NBA for life. But last week, TMZ released a video from 2011 that showed Stiviano making her own racist remarks about African-Americans.

“I don’t understand black people,” she said. “You give them a little bit of money, they don’t know what to do with it. [Black people] just act crazy … they’re like, ‘Yo, I wanna put extra rims on top of my rims. And my rims are gonna turn around. I’m gonna call them spinners.’”

Regardless of what Stiviano has said or done, she doesn’t deserve to be attacked. If the alleged incident actually took place as her lawyer said it did, there should be consequences for the men involved.

Did Caroline Wozniacki put a hex on Rory McIlroy?

Caroline-Wozniacki-witch

Prior to Friday, Rory McIlroy had been playing some of his best golf of the season in the wake of dumping his fiancee Caroline Wozniacki. McIlroy won the European BMW PGA Championship last weekend and kicked off the Memorial Tournament at Muirfield Village on Thursday by firing a 63 in the first round. Then, Wozniacki changed her Twitter avatar.

For whatever reason, Woz made her avatar a photo of her looking like a witch standing over her giant kettle. Chris Chase of For the Win noted that the photo was originally posted last October during a Halloween celebration.

The picture made sense in October, but what about now? If you believe in dungeons and dragons and witches and warlocks, you might find it interesting that McIlroy shot a second-round 78 on Friday, which could go down as the worst round of the day among the entire field.

What’s in the pot, Caroline? We’re onto you…

Floyd Mayweather reportedly paid Nicki Minaj $50K to show up at daughter’s birthday

Nicki-Minaj-Iyanna-Mayweather

Nothing is too good for Floyd Mayweather Jr.’s little girl. Last year, Mayweather had Justin Bieber and Kevin Hart show up for Iyanna’s 13th birthday party. This year it was Nicki Minaj, and Floyd reportedly paid a hefty price for her presence.

Or, should I say, the price was hefty to people like us. According to TMZ, Mayweather paid Minaj $50,000 to make an appearance at Iyanna’s 14th birthday party last weekend. Nicki only had to stay for about an hour and pose for some photos with Iyanna. The party was held at the MGM ballroom in Las Vegas, which of course Mayweather rented out.

As many of you know, the celebrity presence at Iyanna’s birthday party was so strong that it even led to some drama. It was also there that Iyanna posed with T.I.’s wife, which is said to have sparked the brawl between T.I. and Mayweather at a restaurant the next morning.

Iyanna is only 14, and you know Mayweather is going to keep outdoing himself with her birthday parties every year. That’s kind of a scary thought.

Calvin Johnson’s girlfriend allegedly threatened to ‘molly wop’ his baby mama

Calvin JohnsonDetroit Lions wide received Calvin Johnson has found his name wrapped up in a cliche baby mama drama situation after his girlfriend allegedly threatened the mother of his child. According to TMZ, a woman named Shallyn Blanton — who claims Johnson is the mother of her six-month-old child — recently filed a police report claiming Megatron’s girlfriend said she was going to “molly wop” her.

In the report, Blanton said Johnson violated the terms of a custody agreement by bringing his girlfriend Brittney McNorton around their alleged child.

Blanton claims she and Calvin began to argue — and that’s when Brittney “began pointing her cell phone in Blanton’s face while [Blanton] attempted to remove her child from Johnson’s car.”

Blanton claims Brittney (who works for the Lions organization) got all up in her face with the cell phone, so she tried to move Brit’s hand — and that’s when Brit “leapt from the car screaming that she was going to ‘molly wop yo ass!”

If you have never heard the term “molly wop,” you can read the definition at Urban Dictionary. It basically means smacking someone in the head really, really hard.

Blanton admits that Johnson and McNorton left without anything turning violent, but she wants a restraining order placed against McNorton.

McNorton’s Linked In page says she is the Manager of Partnership Activation with the Detroit Lions.
