Model Nadia Forde has dismissed speculation that she is next in line to become the girlfriend of golf hero Rory McIlroy.

The striking brunette, who has launched a singing career in recent months, denied reports that she and the Down golf star have become close since they met on a night out in Dublin last October.

The Irish/Italian beauty also insisted that she does not even have the 25-year-old’s phone number.


The model-turned-singer has been at the centre of a speculation storm after McIlroy revealed that he had ended his engagement to Danish tennis starlet Caroline Wozniacki last month.

Book makers Paddy Power are offering odds of 6.1 that Forde will be the next girlfriend of the world famous golfer.

“Don’t believe everything you hear,” she said. “He doesn’t even have my phone number. And I don’t have his.

“I met him with a gang of friends last October in 37 bar on Dawson Street and I haven’t seen him since. End of story.”

“It was one of those situations where you have mutual friends and two plus two equals five,” Nadia added.

Despite her insistence that nothing went on, the model is said to have spent time with the golfer after meeting him on a night and the pair remained friends.

The 25-year-old said she is more than happy with her single status and is “in a great place in my life now.”

The curvy model released her debut single BPM in Ireland in April and also saw the launch of her TV show for Ballymount broadcaster TV3, Nadia Goes To Hollywood.

The programme followed the brunette’s recent trip to LA, where she recorded most of her first solo album.


While the model was coy on revealing too much, she’s hopeful that she’ll soon get a green light for a second series of the fly on the wall show.

After spending months in Hollywood, Forde has vowed that she will never lose her curves and doesn’t deny herself sweet treats, but is a regular gym goer.

“I’ve to go to the gym to keep things in check,” she said. “Weight is also a state of mind.

“You can hang on to weight if you are feeling vulnerable and sometimes you can lose weight if you are in a bad space in your life.”

“That’s the thing about the gym for me.”
