Contrary to TMZ’s report, Georges “Rush” St. Pierre’s “personal problems” do not consist of an ailing father.
St. Pierre’s sister, Myriam St. Pierre, reported to Quebec newspaper La Presse that “My father is doing very well. We get lots of calls and this rumor has to stop. It [is causing us] pain. My father [watches] my children. He would not [watch] them if he was about to die. I do not know where this rumor came from, but this is wrong.”
St. Pierre abruptly talked about retirement because of personal problems after his controversial split-decision win over Johny Hendricks, and TMZ was quickly on the prowl for any gossip that may pertain to St. Pierre’s decision to step away from the sport, and may have reported their information before confirming their sources.
