Rumors have been spreading over the last few days that Denver Broncos QB and SportsCenter regularTim Tebow is dating Olympic skiing superstar Lindsey Vonn. In November, Vonn announced that she and husband/manager Thomas Vonn were divorcing after four years of marriage.
Some rumors are pointing to photo ops taken together by Tebow and Vonn at the 2011 ESPY’s in June as evidence of their courting. If I might take a moment to insert opinion here: Does anyone seriously think Tim freaking Tebow would date a married woman? Tebow says they met at the ESPYs, which is kind of surprising considering they are both sports stars with a nearby home field….
Buzz really gained steam this past week after Vonn celebrated a World Cup skiing event. After collecting the ‘W,’ Vonn dropped to one knee in a celebratory Tebow after winning the World Cup race in nearby Beaver Creek, CO. Vonn says that Tebow’s brother Robby was in attendance at the race, and she asked for and was given his blessing to perform the celebration. After researching this, we just found out that Robby is a member of Vonn’s “Vonn-tourage,”
Here comes the buzzkilll for this fun rumor. As the rumors gained steam, Vonn addressed things head on. Vonn told the AP,
“I am single. I’m not with anyone. I’ve heard a lot of rumors and a lot of reports….
Just because I `Tebow,’ doesn’t mean I’m dating him. I said that if I won in Colorado, I would `Tebow’ because I admire what he’s doing. “
I think we can file this rumor as just misinformed assumptions.
