Paulina Gretzky ends racy Twitter account after chat with Dad

Paulina Gretzky, the 22-year-old daughter of hockey great Wayne Gretzky, has shut down her popular Twitter account, which featured racy photos of the struggling model/singer/actress
Poor Paulina Gretzky. The struggling model/singer/actress finally was becoming known for something other than being the daughter of legendary hockey star Wayne Gretzky.

OK, so that something was sending out racy photos of herself and her friends via Twitter, but her name was out there nonetheless.

But now it looks like Dad has stepped in and ruined everything. The 22-year-old Gretzky has shut down her Twitter feed -- which had more than 24,000 followers -- apparently after a chat with her father.

Gretzky said in one of her last posts: "Having a nice sit down dinner with my dad about social media..haha." Then came her final tweet on Saturday: "Taking a break from Twitter for a bit. Happy Holidays!!! xoxo."

Some suggest that the move might have something to do with reports that Gretzky's father may be involved in a potential purchase of the Toronto Maple Leafs.

Or maybe he was just being a good father and talked some sense into his daughter, who had been posting shots of herself in tight tops, short skirts and provocative poses for the world to see.

You can see possibly the least suggestive of all her photos above. And even though Gretzky's Twitter account no longer exists, you can still find many of the others out there in cyberspace.

Just know that the Great One does not approve.
