There’s a popular saying that goes, “If two past lovers can remain friends, either they never were in love or they still are.” In the case of Lindsey Vonn and ex-boyfriend Tiger Woods, it could be the latter. Is a Lindsey Vonn, Tiger Woods reunion on the horizon?
The 31-year-old Olympic skier and model recently revealed that she and Woods have remained good friends after they broke up in May 2015. Despite what happened, Vonn still has affection and mad respect for the 40-year-old pro golfer.
“I still love him,” Vonn told Access Hollywood Live’s Kit Hoover and Donald Faison. “He is a great guy and he is a great father, and I have the utmost respect for him and I wish him the best and we are friends. We are just two adults and it didn’t work out.”
A week after the couple split last year, Vonn took to social media to explain her side of the story. She said she and Woods just didn’t have enough time for each other anymore. Their hectic schedules forced them to spend most of their time apart.
One of Vonn’s closest friends had a wilder version of the breakup. In an interview with Daily Mail, the unnamed source revealed that it was the golfer’s promiscuity that ruined the relationship. Vonn allegedly found out that Woods was regularly having sex with prostitutes while he was on the road.
“He had a relapse in the sex department,” said the source. “Most men would drink over such [competitive] losses. Tiger has sex over it. Usually with local hookers whom he pays exorbitant amounts to, probably so they will want repeat business and won’t tell.”
Even though Vonn admitted that she still has feelings for Woods, that doesn’t mean they’re dating again, or at least not yet. Vonn told Page Six that she is single and ready to mingle. Interested suitors just need to be confident and not be intimidated by her.
“That’s the only requirement. Just be confident in yourself and don’t be afraid to say hi,” Vonn mused. “No one ever says hi to me! No one talks to me.”
