Rory McIlroy girlfriend Nadia Forde survived terrifying car crash

Nadia-Forde

Irish singer and model Nadia Forde walked away from a very frightening car crash earlier this week. According to The Mirror, Forde’s car flipped over six times on the freeway. She is very lucky to have avoided any type of serious injury.

Forde, who is rumored to be dating Rory McIlroy, was reportedly driving her Fiat sports car from London to Manchester last Sunday afternoon when she lost control of the vehicle and ended up flipping six times. The 25-year-old suffered only a minor bruise on her head and was released from the hospital after some precautionary tests.

“Hiiiiii just want to say Thanks a mill for all the lovely messages/txts/calls I’ve been getting!” Forde wrote on Instagram. “Feeling very loved and very very lucky! I’m fine..nothing a few hugs and hot chocolates won’t fix…lots of love.”

McIlroy was asked about the crash as he prepared for the British Open.

“Yeah, obviously if anyone’s in a car crash, you’re glad to see that they’re okay,” he said. “But yeah, obviously it was a pretty scary incident.”

McIlroy, who broke up with his ex-fiancee Caroline Wozniacki just days after their wedding invitations went out, has been spotted with Forde in recent weeks. The two insist they are just friends, but most people aren’t buying it. We’re glad Nadia escaped the wreck unscathed.

Nadia Forde: Rory McIlroy and I are just friends … for now

Rumors have been swirling over the past month or so that Rory McIlroy is dating Irish model and singer Nadia Forde. While Forde denied that the two are romantically involved last month and said they had only met a few times, they have been spotted multiple times together as of late.

According to the Mirror, Forde and McIlroy were seen leaving a bar together in Dublin, Ireland last weekend. A witness spotted them “sitting together and laughing and joking all night.” What does that mean? Not a whole lot, because Forde still insists they are just friends.

“I met Rory last year through friends. He’s a lovely guy,” she told the Sunday People. “The bottom line with me and Rory is we have ­mutual friends who introduced us and we’ve been in each other’s company.”

Forde was then asked if McIlroy was her type, to which she replied, “I don’t really have a type, to be honest with you.” But even if she’s telling the truth about her and Rory just being pals, that doesn’t mean it won’t turn into more.

“I think whoever I end up with I will be friends with first,” Forde added. “The important thing is having ­somebody with ambition and drive who is hard-working. That for me is a massive turn-on.”

Ambition and drive? Check. Rory is a 25-year-old professional golfer who has a nine-figure endorsement deal with Nike. Hard-working? Well, now that he has broken things off with Caroline Wozniacki, no one can argue that McIlroy is spending too much time with the Danish tennis star and not enough on the course.

After he was spotted out with Forde, McIlroy went out and set a course record at Royal Aberdeen with an opening round 64 at the Scottish Open. He also smashed a 436-yard drive that day. He shot a 78 in the second round and kind of played himself out of contention, but you get the point. Rory is starting to look a lot better on the course. His new “friend” must be good luck.

Nadia Forde denies she is dating Rory McIlroy

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.
