Maria Kirilenko calls off wedding to Alexander Ovechkin

Maria Kirilenko has done a Rory McIlroy on Alexander Ovechkin. The tennis star has called off her planned wedding to the NHL superstar and revealed that they are no longer a couple.

No word on how Maria broke the news to Ovechkin. One hopes she at least had the nerve to do it face-to-face and not over the phone like when Rory cut loose Caroline Wozniacki.

Kirilenko told rsport.ru about the break up:

I have decided to terminate the engagement. There are many reasons, but do not want to go into details. I’ll Say one thing: our relationship [is over], but I respect Sasha as a person and athlete and I sincerely wish him continued athletic success.

Hmm, is there a subtle hint in that statement? She wishes him continued athletic success. But what about romantic success?

Basically she’s saying, “I don’t want him to start sucking at hockey. I just want him to wind up totally alone and miserable. I want him to miss me and my sweet sweet butt every day until he dies.”

Ovechkin probably won’t have much trouble replacing Kirilenko. He may be one ugly SOB but he’s still insanely rich and an athlete. Women hotter than Kirilenko will be lining up to help him get over the break up. He will be fine.

And Maria will be fine too, as long as Instagram is around.
