Olympic skier Lindsey Vonn is currently dating fellow professional athlete Tiger Woods, but could she almost have ended up with a very controversial NBA player instead?
Eyebrows rose on Tuesday, when a report surfaced on the Internet that Vonn had been dating Kim Kardashian’s ex, Kris Humphries (who’s still her legal husband), when she was just becoming romantically involved with the pro golfer.
But not so fast! “That is a complete fabrication,” a source close to Vonn tells omg!.
So, what’s the origin of these rumors? Well, it turns out that it stemmed from a source that told Us Weekly, “Woods wasn’t Vonn’s only suitor … Bachelor No. 2 was none other than Kim Kardashian ex Kris Humphries. They’re both from Minnesota, so they had a lot to talk about." The source added that the two never got physical. (The quotes can be found in Us Weekly’s April 8 print issue, but not online.)
“By October, however, Vonn had given Humphries the brush-off for the only man who could understand her," says the mag.
Last June, Humphries tweeted that he was indeed hanging with the downhill skiing Olympic medalist:
Hanging with a fellow Minnesotan @lindseyvonn. Gotta get her back on lake minnetonka soon!

So, Humphries and Vonn … never a couple. Vonn and Woods …. very much a new couple (see video below). Kardashian and Humphries … still legally married and heading to court to determine whether or not they ever were a legit couple. Kardashian and West … an unmarried couple with a baby on the way.
