Tennis star Caroline Wozniacki buys $1.7M pad on Fisher Island

During the same month of her sudden breakup with golf star fiancé Rory McIlroy and an early exit from the French Open, records show tennis champ Caroline Wozniacki bought herself a nice condo on Fisher Island.

Retail therapy, anyone?

Wozniacki, 23, plunked down $1.7 million for a furnished, 1,850-square-foot condo at 2543 Fisher Island Dr. on May 2.

The Danish damsel paid cash for the three-bedroom crib.

Wozniacki’s name doesn’t appear on the deed. The owner is a corporation called PAC 2543.

But the Miami-based company is ultimately owned by Wozniacki’s mom Anna, which speaks volumes about whom it’s really for.

McIlroy spectacularly announced earlier this month that he wouldn’t marry his girlfriend of three years, even though they hired a wedding planner and sent out invitations and picked her dress.

The Irish golfer owns a mansion in Palm Beach Gardens.

Wozniacki was bounced from the first round of the French Open on Tuesday by Belgian Yanina Wickmayer.

NBA REPORT

Indiana Pacers star Paul George, who has been engaged these past two weeks with the Miami Heat in the Eastern Conference Finals, is the subject of a paternity lawsuit filed last week in Manhattan.

A former stripper from Tootsie’s Cabaret in Miami Gardens claims she gave birth to a daughter conceived with George. Brunette Daniela Rajic, 24, gave birth to daughter Olivia on May 1, after she moved to New York.

She filed suit against George, 24, as he prepared for Game 5 of the series in Indianapolis.

According to published reports, Rajic and George met during a party on a yacht in Miami Beach and dated throughout last summer.

“If and when there is legal confirmation that I am the father, I will fully embrace my responsibilities,” George said in the statement.

No one from Tootsie’s returned calls for comment about Rajic.

LOOKING BACK ON ‘VICE’

Thirty years ago this summer, NBC started broadcasting Miami Vice, a series often credited for putting Miami on the entertainment map.

Now, an aging Don Johnson, who became a household name as cop Sonny Crockett, reminisces on the good old days when the cast and crew filmed without permits, and in peace.

“What we were doing was unheard of in terms of network television,” Johnson tells Moviefone. “We were coming to this as a group of guys who, a lot of times, didn’t even realize you needed to get a film permit. ... And so we would put on the screen what excited us, what was fun for us, and if that translated, then great.”

Well, it translated for six seasons into one of history’s biggest network series — changing Johnson’s life forever.

“Back then we had a little bit of privacy,” says Johnson, who’s now 64. “But that was the beginning of there being zero privacy for me.”

And to this day, Johnson claims he didn’t even see all of the 2006 movie Miami Vice, starring Colin Farrell.

“I saw some of it.” Johnson says. “I didn’t think that was one of [director Michael Mann’s] best efforts.”
