At least, that's the latest scuttlebutt coming from Sports Illustrated's Alan Shipnuck (h/t CBS Sports), who reported the two were getting rather friendly recently in Hawaii, a locale that makes it incredibly easy to be more than friendly.
Here is an excerpt from a report Shipnuck wrote about Johnson at Kapalua.
If the laid-back Johnson looked strangely comfortable on the Plantation Course it comes from the extra time he's spent here. Needing to break in new irons and a new driver, Johnson arrived early and played six practice rounds. (That also allowed him to spend some quality time with his new squeeze Paulina Gretzky.)
Oh, so Johnson is breaking in some new clubs and looks comfortable on the...Bwhaaa?!?!
Now it's important to note that neither Gretzky nor Johnson have confirmed the relationship. However, CBS did spot this little post from Gretzky's Instagram.
So it seems the young woman who was recently featured in Canada's fashion magazine Flare, found her way to a beautiful paradise recently.
Whether that paradise comes in tandem with a 28-year-old golf pro is another matter entirely.
Speaking of her magazine spread, she also gave an interview that spoke volumes on things such as past rumors of her dating Kings center Jarret Stoll and what she looks for in a man.
Obviously, she shot down the Stoll rumors, but offered this in what she looks for in a man.
Jaret Stoll (of the Los Angeles Kings) and I are not dating. We just met through mutual friends during the playoffs…but we’re not dating. Everyone can know this now! I pick the wrong guys, so I’m waiting for the right guy to come pick me.
If we follow logically, either Johnson picked up on Gretzky which bodes well for the two, or she hit on him.
In which case, he is the wrong kind of guy and these two crazy kids are in for some rocky times ahead.
