THE model-turned-singer Nadia Forde has denied she is dating the golfer Rory McIlroy.

In an interview in the 'Living' section of today's 'Sunday Independent' and in an exclusive video for, the 25-year-old talks about her painful childhood, her health and fitness regime, and how she isn’t involved in McIlroy's high profile split from tennis star Caroline Wozniacki.

“Don’t believe everything you read and don’t believe everything you hear!” she says in London, where she is currently living, about the rumours she is dating the double Major winning golfer.

Bookmakers  Paddy Power are giving odds of 6-1 that Forde will be Rory’s next girlfriend after the break-up of his relationship.

“I’ve had some crazy things on Paddy Power about myself before and it is just…well, I think the story is more interesting in the papers and in the media than it actually is in real life. I wouldn’t be betting on me if I was anyone going into Paddy Power!”

She also denied stories in the tabloids that he texted her

“No,” she smiles. “He doesn’t even have my phone number. And I don’t have his. Look, I met him with a gang of friends last October in 37 [the bar on Dawson Street in Dublin] and I haven’t seen him since. End of story.

"Next question! It was one of those situations where you have mutual friends and two plus two equals five!”
