Paulina Gretzky may have removed all evidence of longtime love Dustin Johnson on social media, but the golfer has now released a statement to say the pair are very much “committed to being a family.”
Gretzky, 29, fueled rumours of a split after wiping her Instagram feed clean of Johnson.
The daughter of hockey legend Wayne Gretzky and the golf pro have been engaged since 2013, but after 5 years together, it looked like they may have broken up.
However, Johnson posted Wednesday:
Johnson was rumoured to have had an affair with a woman named Yassie Safai. “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 the outlet Gretzky and Johnson had not split, but would not expand on why she removed his photos from Instagram.
The last mention of Gretzky from Johnson was in August. The couple share two children together, River, 1, and Tatum, 3.
