Myriam St-Pierre, the younger sister of UFC welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre, told La Presse out of Canada their father is not ill.

TMZ, a gossip-fueled website, reported on Monday that the “personal” matters St-Pierre discussed this past weekend were centered around his impending passing of his father and an unplanned pregnancy.

“My father is doing very well” Myriam St-Pierre said. “We have received many phone calls, and this rumor must stop. It is causing us pain.”

Myriam St-Pierre added that her father “watches my children. He would not watch them if he was about to die.”
