Shes a big sports celebrity in her own right, but it wasnt until Lindsey Vonn started dating Tiger Woods that she experienced such intense scrutiny.
The 28-year-old skier told press, Its weird. Im used to it in the ski world, but not my personal life. So, its been difficult and interesting.
“I mean, it”s weird when people are taking pictures of you when you don”t know it. It”s a little bit — a lot — intrusive. But we”re dealing with it and we”re happy, and that”s all that matters.”
Previously Tiger announced, “Lindsey and I have been friends for some time. But over the last few months we have become very close and are now dating.”
And a source close to Vonn noted that Lindsey (who suffered a skiing injury a few months back) is better off since hooking up Tiger. “The year sucked in terms of physical things, but for the first time, she feels like she can do anything she wants. This is the first time she can be a woman.”
