Dustin Johnson has finally addressed the rumors that his relationship with Paulina Gretzky is on the rocks. The #2 ranked PGA golfer dismissed the idea that the celebrity couple were headed for a breakup by saying that they “are committed to being a family.”

Last weekend, it was revealed that Paulina purged every photo of Johnson from her Instagram account that has over 700,000 followers. Paulina, the 29-year-old daughter of hockey icon Wayne Gretzky, deleted every single trace of Dustin from her account.


Then came rumors that Johnson had an affair with a Californian socialite named Yassie Safai. Yassie denied that she had ever been romantic with DJ. “I am not in a relationship with Dustin Johnson. Nor have we had any prior relationship,” she said.

Johnson finally addressed the drama regarding his fiancee in a tweet: “Every relationship goes through its ups and downs, but most importantly, we love each other very much and are committed to being a family. Thank you for your love and support.”

Johnson and Gretzky got engaged in 2013 and have two sons together, both under three years old.

In 2015, Gretzky gushed about Johnson, “Dustin’s the best dad. He’s my best friend. He’s been so supportive with me and we’re just there for each other.”
