According to UFC welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre, all the rumors out there about him are just that: rumors. 

TMZ confronted GSP at an airport on Wednesday in an attempt to confirm a report they put out on Monday stating that the 170-pound kingpin is dealing with an unplanned pregnancy and his father's terminal illness

"I'm not a dad, I'm not in rehab and my father is not dying," St-Pierre said, later adding that he planned to resume training in Montreal on Monday "for himself."

He clarified that he indeed is planning some time off from inside the Octagon after his grueling five-round war with Johny Hendricks at UFC 167 on Saturday, a title bout the majority of pundits believe "Rush" lost. 

TMZ has been hot on the Tristar standout's trail all week, also asking if he had any bad blood against his former manager Shari Spencer, who is suing the champ for what could up end being millions of dollars. 

When asked if he had any hard feelings towards an ex-manager, who wasn't explicitly named as Spencer by the TMZ reporter, he shook his head no. 

While both the UFC veteran and his sister, Myriam, have denied the allegations reported by TMZ, the controversial media outlet is sticking by their stories and even claiming that the woman pregnant with GSP's baby lives in Montreal. 

Yesterday, St-Pierre sent out a tweet to his followers to further show that he is happy and in good health, enjoying some well-deserved time off. 

Johny and I gave you the Fight of the Night- hope you enjoyed it! Forget all the rumors- on vacation, happy & well!!!

Adding another question mark to an already complicated situation is St-Pierre's manager, Rodolfo Beaulieu, stating that it's "possible" his star client's fight with Hendricks was his last, per MMA Fighting

Should that be the case, GSP will eventually be an obvious addition to the UFC's Hall of Fame, boasting an incredible 20-2 UFC record, including nine consecutive title defenses, the second best in company history behind Anderson Silva (10). 

St-Pierre also avenged his only two career losses to Matt Serra and Matt Hughes (twice). 

Based on how this whole saga is playing out, it looks like fight fans are a ways off from hearing about what GSP's next move will be.
