World no.2 Rafael Nadal has criticized the media for publishing fake rumours around his impending marriage with his long-time girlfriend, Xisca Perello. He though maintained that he was not hurt by it. While speaking to El Pais, Nadal said:
“Personally I wasn’t hurt at all. But there is a lot of talk about these things. I’ve read that and I was really angry about it, these are things that we try to keep private but end up becoming public. Well, alright then. Ultimately I don’t really care. I have no problem having details of the wedding being publicized.”
Rafa though said that the false information spread on media has not given him trouble as yet but he is very angry about it, he made a request to the media not to spread false information related to his marriage. Nadal said that he will sue anyone who publishes the wrong information related to his marriage.
“Everything tends to turn into a circus. We are used to social media and news organizations publishing things that make no sense and which are not even true, and nobody ever publishes a correction. But it hasn’t given me any headaches.”
