Dustin Johnson, the number one ranked golfer in the world, may have some troubles at home after his stunning wife Paulina Gretzky deleted all of their pictures together off of Instagram. And if the latest rumors are to be believed, the reason behind their alleged rift may be another woman.
According to The Daily Mail, Johnson’s recent friendship with 29-year-old socialite and golf influencer Yassie Safai is “believed to be a major issue in the couple’s reported relationship breakdown.”
Johnson’s never been known for being on his best behavior, as he previously tested positive for cocaine back in 2014. Similarly, a tipster emailed us earlier this summer with some apparent proof that Johnson was having an affair, although we never published the story due to an inability to corroborate the facts.
Johnson and Paulina, the daughter of hockey legend Wayne Gretzky, have been engaged since 2013. The couple has two children together — Tatum Gretzky Johnson and River Jones Johnson.

Johnson and Gretzky are regular visitors to the exclusive Sherwood Country Club near Los Angeles, where Safai’s partner, Michael Humbarger, is also a member. She is reported to have caught the golfing bug in a big way, and has regularly re-tweeted messages detailing Johnson’s exploits on the course.
One her own Instagram page, Safai, 39, describes herself as a “Connector. World Traveler. Golf Lover. Joy Seeker. Fashion Enthusiast. Rescue Momma. Hopelessly In Love”.
Gretzky’s parents, Canadian ice hockey legend Wayne and wife Janet, own a mansion at Sherwood, and are said to be furious at the way the scandal has erupted. Another Sherwood member, who did not want his identity revealed, commented: “It is the talk of the club that Yassie is at the centre of the split, and it has caused the Gretzky family a lot of heartache.
You can find Safai’s Instagram here, although she currently has her account set to private.
Oh, and Dustin … WHAT ARE YOU DOING?!
