One of the biggest names in the history of combat sports, as well as a well-established businessman, Conor McGregor, is truly one of his kind. However, this name is associated with a lot of controversies as well, be it personal or professional. Conor has made his success transparent to the public but the same cannot be said about his personal life.
Anyone who follows Conor on social media will be aware of his long-running relationship with his girlfriend, Dee Devlin. Dee Devlin seems to be the love of Conor’s life, with whom he also shares three children. The couple took to their social media handles in 2020 to announce their engagement. But is Devlin the only girl Conor had engaged in a relationship with?

In 2017, Conor McGregor was rumored to be dating the famous singer Rita Ora. Conor and Rita met at an event in 2017. Rita posted her pictures with Conor with the caption “Date Night”. At the time, both were happily committed to their own partners which gave rise to the rumor of them dating. People even alleged that they both hooked up that night before breaking up.
Conor remained unfazed by the allegations. Later, Artem Lobov, Conor’sclose friend, and sparring partner claimed that it was a try from Rita to stir up controversies and nothing else. He also said Conor was still committed to Dee.
Allegations and Lawsuits against Conor McGregor
Conor, while being in a relationship, has become a part of many controversies. In one such recent incident, a woman from Liverpool Terry Murray claimed that Conor fathered her child, Clodagh. She filled out an inquiry form in 2018. Conor also did not remain silent on allegations and denied them completely. He was also willing to undergo DNA tests. In late 2019, Conor was cleared of the allegations following the DNA test results.
The Notorious was accused by a woman in Ireland of s*xual abuse. According to an article in the New York Times, Conor allegedly r*ped a woman in a penthouse of a Dublin hotel in 2018. Several criminal charges were pressed on him. Conor, replying to this said, “It’s old news, It was investigated thoroughly over the course of two long years and I was cleared of all wrongdoing.”
The Notorious was also alleged a long time ago of infidelity. There were leaked images of Conor spending a night with a woman (not Dee) in a hotel room. On this, Conor chose to remain silent. Along with this, Conor was also filed for ‘indecent exposure’ and attempted sexual assault in Corsica in 2020. To this, a representative of Conor released a statement “Conor McGregor vigorously denies any accusations of misconduct. He has been interviewed and released.”
Hence, even after all this, Conor still continues to be one of the most famous men in the whole of combat sports and a true family man at his heart.
