Rory McIlroy calls OFF divorce from wife Erica Stoll in shocking U-turn

Rory McIlroy has called off his divorce from wife Erica Stoll in a shocking U-turn.

In May, the professional golfer announced that he was separating from his wife after seven years of marriage.

The 35-year-old started dating Erica in 2014, months after he broke off his previous engagement to tennis star Caroline Wozniacki.

The former couple tied the knot in a star-studded ceremony at Ashford Castle in 2017 and welcomed their daughter Poppy three years later.

According to the Irish Independent, divorce papers were officially filed in Florida on Monday.

His manager Sean O’Flaherty said in a statement: “Rory McIlroy’s communications team confirmed today that a divorce has been filed. They stressed Rory’s desire to ensure this difficult time is as respectful and amicable as possible.”

The divorce filing, which described their marriage as “irretrievably broken”, requests shared custody of their daughter Poppy, and asks for a parenting plan to be established.

However, Rory’s attorney Thomas Sasser filed a Notice of Voluntary Dismissal on his behalf on Tuesday afternoon in Palm Beach County Courthouse.

Court officials responded by closing out the case meaning that if the pro golfer changes his mind again, he will have to start the divorce proceedings from scratch.

However, Rory addressed the speculation surrounding his relationship status in a statement to The Guardian on Tuesday.

“There have been rumors about my personal life recently, which is unfortunate. Responding to each rumor is a fool’s game,” the golfer said.

“Over the past weeks, Erica and I have realized that our best future was as a family together. Thankfully, we have resolved our differences and look forward to a new beginning.”


Rory, 35, was recently valued to be worth $380million.

The sports star’s attorney is listed as Thomas Sasser, the same person who represented Tiger Woods when his wife famous divorced him back in 2010.

Their split has come as a huge shock, as Erica was often seen cheering Rory on during his tournaments.

However, she was noticeably absent from the Masters in Augusta last month.

The mother-of-one was heavily involved in the world of golf before meeting her husband, and worked for the American PGA since 2008.

Erica and Rory met four years later during the 2012 Ryder Cup.

The pair began dating in 2014, after the golfer split from his ex-fiancée Carolina Wozniacki.

The couple, who made their romance official in 2015, have been notoriously private since the beginning of their romantic relationship.

They famously tied the knot at Ashford Castle in 2017, which was a star-studded affair with guests including Stevie Wonder, Niall Horan, Ed Sheeran, Chris Martin and Jamie Dornan.

Rory was seen for the first time since the news broke on Tuesday during a practice round for the US PGA Championships, at Valhalla in Louisville, Kentucky.

The 35-year-old appeared stoic as he stared straight while he practicing his shots.
