Following his controversial win over Johny Hendricks at UFC 167, UFC Welterweight Champion Georges St-Pierre shocked the world when he hinted retirement citing issues in his personal life. Since then, there have been a number of speculations as to what those personal issues might be, including a report by TMZ sports that his father is dying and he accidentally impregnated a woman.

According to a report by BloodyElbow.com, Stephane Patry, the former manager of St-Pierre, told 98.5 FM Sports that the only personal issue he could think of that GSP has going on in his life right now is a litigation with Shari Spencer, another one of his former managers.

Here’s the excerpt of what Patry told the radio station, via BloodyElbow.com:

“Do you have any idea what the personal problems that seem to have haunted him and affected his concentration during these past few weeks or days are?”

Patry: “The only thing that I can think of, that I know of, is that between the period where I was his manager and his current management, he had a manager for three years, a woman named Shari Spencer. It didn’t end well between them. When things ended between me and Georges, we stayed good friends but it ended very badly with Shari Spencer and I know she’s suing him for several million dollars. I don’t know if the lawsuit is advancing against Georges and he’s gonna lose it but I don’t see another problem. His parents are in good health, his two sisters too and he doesn’t have health problems otherwise he couldn’t fight. The only thing I could see…”

“Georges doesn’t have children?”

Patry: “No, he doesn’t have any children either. At the moment he isn’t married, he has someone in his life but that’s not on this side either that’s 100% sure. The only thing I can see is the lawsuit with his former manager.”

GSP has yet to comment on Patry’s statements.
