Did Lindsey Vonn cheat on Tiger Woods? Not according to the Olympic skier’s publicist.
In a story recently published by the National Enquirer, it was alleged Vonn had recently been seen making out with an unknown man at a Jay-Z concert.
According to Rick Chandler of Sports Grid, Vonn’s representatives have denied these charges vehemently.
“There is not an ounce of truth in this clearly made up story,” one of Vonn’s representatives told reporters.
What was the whole story? A lot of mouth-play in the backstage area, according to the Enquirer.
The publication’s sources claim Vonn and a group of female friends made their way backstage after a Jay-Z and Justin Timberlake concert in Miami when the Olympian ran into a man she appeared to know quite well.
According to the source, via Radar Online, Vonn threw herself into his arms and started making out with him.
"He was a tall, good-looking man, in his mid-40s, with greying temples," the source alleged. "They were really going at it."
Vonn was in Miami at the time for a LVTakesMiami promotion and later tweeted about the concert.
Tabloid trash, right? Well, maybe.
Common sense urges you to toss this story aside along with the UFO sightings and six-headed orphan stories magazines like the Enquirer enjoy running, but something makes this one more difficult to ignore: The Enquirer broke the story about Woods’ cheating scandal in 2009.
Indeed, the Enquirer figured out Woods had been cheating on his then-wife, Elin Nordegren, with cocktail waitresses. No one believed the Enquirer then either.
Without proof, we’ll have to wait and see. This could easily shape up to nothing, but it could also be something.
Even if it were true, however, Woods doesn’t have much of a leg to stand on when it comes to infidelity. Any argument he has with Vonn would be short-lived at best. She has a pretty big trump card.
