Lindsey Vonn confirms she's dating Tiger Woods
Vonn and Tiger: A friendship that evolved into "something more."
Today, Lindsey Vonn confirmed a rumor that's been out there since January -- she's indeed dating Tiger Woods.
WHAT A DIFFERENCE THREE YEARS MAKES: In 2010, Vonn took a shot at Tiger
Vonn, currently recovering from knee surgery to repair a torn ACL and MCL she suffered during a ski crash early last month, confirmed her relationship in a statement she published on her Facebook profile.
Here it is:
I guess it wasn't a well-kept secret but yes, I am dating Tiger Woods. Our relationship evolved from a friendship into something more over these past few months and it has made me very happy. I don't plan on addressing this further as I would like to keep that part of my life between us, my family and close friends. Thank you for understanding and your continued support! xo LV
And I thought I had a history of dating people with serious baggage...
Woods isn't the only celebrity pictured with Vonn in a recent post on her Facebook page. This March 4 post shows her with heartthrob Orlando Bloom:
Vonn's caption: "Look who I found in Vail! @OrlandoJB_Bloom @vailmtn #niceguy #vailisawesome"
:::: UPDATE ::::
Woods has also posted a statement to his Facebook profile addressing his new relationship:
This season has been great so far and I'm happy with my wins at Torrey and Doral. Something nice that's happened off the course was meeting Lindsey Vonn. Lindsey and I have been friends for some time, but over the last few months we have become very close and are now dating. We thank you for your support and for respecting our privacy. We want to continue our relationship, privately, as an ordinary couple and continue to compete as athletes.
