Twitter Profile Photos Changed So It Must Be True: RIP Wozzilroy?

Ian Mallon and Jerome Reilly cite unnamed sources suggesting that Rory McIlroy and Caroline Wozniacki have split up just weeks after attending a wedding and getting a dog named Bruno together.

Though sources confirm the break-up to the Independent, it appears the change in Twitter profile photos gave editors the assurances necessary to run with the news even though McIlroy denied earlier this week that was a definitive sign as a change in his life.

However, instead of announcing any break-up, he said: "Uh-huh, yeah, it's all good. Just because we changed our Twitter profile picture doesn't mean that we're not together. But yeah, it's all good." The golden couple's amorous postings to each other on Twitter had legions of followers, and fans became concerned when they changed their profile pictures on the networking site to solo photos of themselves rather than "him and her" shots.

Thank goodness the revolving door of my relationships in my early 20's weren't carried out in part on Twitter with thousands of people watching.

Well, his game has certainly improved of late. Maybe Nike convinced him the Marciano principle wasn't a myth.

Cute couple. Too bad if true. Happens to most though. I wouldn't want any of my relationships to be played out in social media, although celebrities participate and accept the ramifications going in.

If true, I hope Bruno gets through it OK. It can be difficult in life coming from a broken home.

If ever there was a post that needed deleting, it's this one.

Weren't there denials from him when he split up with his irish girlfriend?

Don't see the attraction myself. His accent alone would do my head in within 24 hours!
