A furious Holly Sweeney has hit out at claims that ex-lover, superstar golfer Rory McIlroy, bought her the luxury Belfast penthouse apartment that she is selling.
The 21-year-old from Holywood says she paid off the mortgageon the swish flat, in the Boat building on the banks of the Lagan, herself.
She has it on the market at a cool £660,000. The model said that her and US Open golf champ McIlroy did not buy it - but admitted they did look at it together when they were an item.
Holly said that she had a "couple of things going on" which helped her to pay off the massive mortgage.
When asked how she did pay it off, she said: "I don't know. I still ask myself the same question. I was just very clever with how I managed everything."
Holly, who signed with Assets modelling agency in Dublin and who appeared on Irish TV channel TV3's version of Come Dine With Me, split from childhood sweetheart McIlroy last year.
He is now dating tennis star Caroline Wozniazcki.
