Rory McIlroy's Ex-Girlfriend, Shockingly, Not a Huge Fan of His New Girlfriend
When you break up with someone, there is always a party a little more hurt than the other (this is similar to how those whole "Friends With Benefits" ideas play out, except normal people can probably act better than Justin Timberlake). But when the breakup is public, and has a lot of famous people involved, the separation can drag on for months.
So it didn't surprise me to run across this interview in the Mirror with Rory McIlroy's ex-girlfriend, Holly Sweeney, who wasn't so happy to be let go for a famous tennis player.
I will just toss out some quotes from the interview with my own thoughts in parenthesis.
"I never thought he would do this to me." (Yeah, a famous athlete leaving you for someone more famous! A revelation similar to King Tut's tomb!)
"It killed me - that's why I went away to Dubai as soon as we split up, so I didn't have to look or think about it. "But when you're on a beach with nothing to take your mind off things, it still crops up. So you couldn't get away from it no matter what you did, it was still all over Twitter as well. So even if I was trying to take my mind off it, it still snuck its way back in." (Note to people over the age of 22 reading; I feel like the words 'Twitter' and 'Facebook' will really be involved in just about any relationship decision over the next 15-20 years. Just warning you.)
"I always suspected he had a thing for her. He's always been a big fan of tennis. When he was watching the women's games he always said he fancied her but I didn't take it that seriously - little did I know." (Nice job, Rory. Nothing like sitting around telling your current girlfriend which famous athlete you'd like to bag, and actually having the outlet to do so.)
"I have to put the blame on him for what has happened but obviously I'm not her biggest fan ever." (Neither are Grand Slams ... heyyyy-o!)
"Then he got home, went straight to see the dogs instead of me, dodged me when he came through the door and then sat me down and told me that he met with her in Germany and that he wanted to see how it would go with her." (In case you are wondering, this interview probably isn't going to run over at Oakley.com.)
"I suppose I chose the theme cause I have a very dry sense of humour - it was just me taking the mickey out of myself. People can say I was venting anger or having a sneaky dig but I was just having a laugh at my expense." (How can you leave an attractive girl that says things like 'taking the mickey out of me' and 'sneaky dig'? She's awesome!)
