"Caroline Wozniacki is said to be 'utterly distraught' after her break-up with golfer Rory McIlroy."

Wait, what?!

It's true, the famous golf/tennis couple is reportedly splitsville as of very recently. The paper went on to say that McIlroy initiated the breakup but hasn't gone public with the news yet.

One thing we do know is that both parties are in New York right now -- McIlroy for The Barclays and Wozniacki for the US Open.

Brian Wacker of reported the two had dinner on Saturday night:

Wozniacki issued this tweet on Sunday afternoon in response to the rumors:
