Lindsey Vonn says she’s in a happy relationship with Tiger Woods – “very happy,” according to her Facebook post Monday announcing the romance – but there was a time not so long ago when she had quite a bit of fun at the expense of the golfer and his numerous extramarital affairs.
And three years before their romance began, Lindsey was quoted as mocking her now-boyfriend in a newly unearthed article.
The story describes how Lindsey, surrounded by her entourage at the Olympics, was told of the hugs Tiger got from supporters after releasing a statement following his cheating scandal.
“And like millions of Americans, Vonn can’t help poking fun at Woods’ staged event. When a member of her Vonn-tourage tells her that Woods gave a few friends hugs after ending his statement, she cracks, ‘They’re like, ‘Yeah, you’re awesome, you go have that sex,’” the article reads.
“The room breaks into a laugh. Then she describes a skit she would want to perform if asked to host Saturday Night Live: picture Vonn at Woods’ podium, blue backdrop and all.
‘There’s something you don’t know about me,’ Vonn says in a faux solemn, apologetic voice. ‘Tiger, you’re like my idol, and I too have a sex problem.” More laughter.That would be freaking funny.’”
The blonde then described a sketch she would perform if she ever had the opportunity to host Saturday Night Live.
Vonn’s divorce from her ex-husband became official this year.
Lindsey is Tiger’s first serious relationship since his ex-wife Elin Nordegren left him after several women came out of the woodwork to reveal their affairs with the sports star.
Rumors of a relationship between Wood and Vonn heated up early last month when Woods sent his private jet to fly Vonn home to Vail, Colo., after a crash at the Alpine World Championships in Austria left her with torn ligaments in her right knee and a fractured shin.
Since then, the pair has only grown closer, spending time together in Vai, where Vonn is recuperating from surgery, and most recently, in Florida aboard Woods’s yacht.
Woods’ ex-mistress Devon James expressed doubt that her former fling had renounced his torrid ways.
She said she was shocked to see the pictures of Tiger and Lindsey on Facebook on Monday.
She added: “I thought he would have picked a woman who was more petite and not someone who is more muscular and has a bigger head than his.”
Warming to her theme, she added: “But maybe his taste has changed since Elin and the 27 mistresses.”
Then the actress added: “But you know when the pics came out of Tiger and his new girlfriend … somewhere, 15 other girls were going, ‘Huh? I thought I was his GF!’”
Tiger was recently spotted with his ex-wife on a day out with their children, Charlie, four, and Sam, five, while an apparently nervous Lindsay waited in the car to avoid a run-in with Elin, writes the Daily Mail.
However, his ex-wife isn’t too worried about his new relationship.
As the former Swedish model, 33, has a new man with a really big boat.
