Earlier this week, Paulina Gretzky, the daughter of Wayne Gretzky, made headlines with a decision she made on her social media pages.
According to reports, U.S. Open champion Johnson's newfound friendship with golf groupie Yassie Safai, 39, is being blamed for the split.
You may have seen a lot of stuff about Paulina Gretzky and golfer Dustin Johnson, and the possibility that their relationship is on the rocks.
After spending most of the year as the No. 1 golfer in the world rankings, Johnson fell behind Justin Rose last week. "Nor have we had any prior relationship", Safai wrote.
Johnson and Safai are said to have met at Sherwood Country Club, an exclusive club west of Los Angeles.
"I have no insight into the rumours around Dustin Johnson and Paulina Gretzky's relationship". I have never met Paulina Gretzky and do not know the Gretzky family, but again, I am sure they are great people. I wish them nothing but the best.
A source reportedly told the outlet Gretzky and Johnson had not split, but would not expand on why she removed his photos from Instagram. "I just want to go back to living my normal life"'. Gretzky, 29, still follows the golf star, and it is unclear what prompted the puzzling move.
It isn't the first time the pair have hit a relationship sand trap.
In recent days, Gretzky - a frequent flier at PGA tourneys - has been missing from Johnson's side.
In addition, he allegedly had a number of affairs with the wives of two other players.
