"I can't sleep at night, man," St-Pierre said at the evening's post-fight press conference. "I'm going crazy. I have issues, man. I need to get out for a while. I don't know what I'm going to do. I feel like I'm leaving everything out now, but I need to leave part of my life personal. I need to get out for a little bit, and that's it."
TMZ reports that St-Pierre is dealing with a pair of issues; his father is dying, and he recently impregnated a woman. According to the site, St-Pierre doesn't want the woman to have the baby, but she is insisting on keeping it.
St-Pierre's long-time friend and trainer, Firas Zahabi, declined to comment on TMZ's report during an appearance on MMA Junkie Radio today.
"Georges has been having mixed feelings for a long time now," Zahabi said. "He has his own personal issues that I can't comment on, and he lives a certain lifestyle."
Meanwhile, Myriam St-Pierre, GSP's younger sister, told Canadian website La Presse that their father is fine.
"My father is doing very well," Myriam St-Pierre said. "We get lots of calls and this rumor has to stop. It is causing us pain... I do not know where this rumor came from, but this is wrong."
For what it's worth, UFC President Dana White did say at the UFC 167 post-fight media scrum that GSP told him his issue, and that it wasn't that bad. I don't think Dana would refer to St-Pierre's father dying as not a big deal.
