Shashi's staying strong


After her horrific ordeal last week, we're glad to see brave Shashi Naidoo is staying strong and positive on her UK getaway.

The 33-year-old model and presenter has been keeping busy on her trip -- even rubbing shoulders with some serious sport stars at Gleneagles this weekend. She posted a shot to Instagram to her with soccer legend Sir Alex Ferguson, and even made an appearance on Ryder Cup winner Rory McIlroy's own Instagram account.

The beautiful model posed for pictures with newly-single Rory's family, and even went on a joyride on a golf cart with his mom, Rosie. We've got to say, Shashi and Rory (25) would make a gorgeous couple -- but it seems that's just wishful thinking on our part. After Britain's Daily Mail surmised that Shashi was Rory's new lady love, Shashi took to Twitter to set the record straight.

Still, it seens Shashi is a staunch supporter of the Northern Irish golfer. "And that's how you do it! Rory McIlroy 8th hole'," Shashi captioned this video of him.

Last Sunday, an intruder broke into Shashi's home in Houghton, Johannesburg and tried to rape her.

Shashi managed to fight him off by kicking and scratching every part of him she could reach, she told YOU.

Shashi travelled to the UK afterwards clear her head of the horrifying incident. On Friday, the star posted this inspirational quote to Instagram.
