Paulina Gretzky has found herself at the center of an uproar over her upcoming Golf Digest cover photo, but it’s far from the first time the daughter of hockey great Wayne Gretzky has made waves due to her photos.
Members of the PGA are upset that Gretzky will be featured on the May cover of the magazine even though she isn’t a pro golf player, she’s just engaged to one — PGA player Dustin Johnson.
Pro golfer Stacy Lewis told The New York Times the cover shows that female golfers “don’t get respect for being the golfers we are,” and that she’d like to see more respect for the women’s game.
The magazine defended its choice.
“Paulina ranks at the high end of the golf celebrity scene today, and she has a compelling story to tell. She also might get some new people interested in the game,” Golf Digest said in a statement.
Check out some of Gretzky’s greatest hits below:
Gretzky became a household name in 2012 for posting sexually suggestive photos of herself and pals on Instagram. These days, she mostly posts bikini photos of herself on yachts and beaches.
After she gained Internet fame, Gretzky quickly made the hop to magazine covers, posing in a spread for Flare magazine and then, in December of last year, posing for Maxim.
Being Wayne Gretzky’s daughter apparently isn’t enough fame for Paulina, who hung out with singer Drake recently at a club. Her brother uploaded the photo to Twitter.
Gretzky didn’t shy away from social media when it came to announcing a relationship with professional golfer Dustin Johnson. She posted a photo of the pair making out at a club to Instagram. The pair later got engaged.
Dancing in a Bikini
Using the new Instagram video feature, Gretzky outdid her previous photo posts and uploaded a video of herself dancing in a bikini during a photo shoot to Robin Thicke’s “Blurred Lines.”
