Sheryl Crow has been accused of knowing all about disgraced cyclist, Lance Armstrong’s, doping, as she dated the athlete a decade ago.
It has been claimed that Crow was present in an Indiana hospital in 2004 when Armstrong told his teammate Frankie Andreu and his wife, Betsy Andreu, to lie about Armstrong’s doping. Armstrong and Crow began to date in 2003, and went on to become engaged before ultimately splitting in 2006.
It’s been reported that Crow was named in affidavits, provided to the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency by Betsy, which alleged that Armstrong had used performance enhancing substances. Crow hasn’t discussed Armstrong’s doping allegations recently.
When talking to Katie Couric in an interview last year, Crow stated, “I fel bad. I felt bad for [Armstrong], I felt bad for his family and I kinda felt like the rest of America.”
She also added, “He is a hero that we watched and looked up to and admired.” Armstrong didn’t mention Crow during his interview with Oprah Winfrey last week.
Andreu though has spoken of the disgust she has for Armstrong, because of his lack of an apology, stating, “He owed it to me. You owed it to me, Lance, and you dropped the ball. After what you’ve done to my family, and you couldn’t own up to it? Now we’re supposed to believe you?”
She also added, “You had one chance at the truth, and this was it. If the hospital room didn’t happen then just say it didn’t happen. But he won’t do it because it did happen. That’s not being transparent. That’s not being completely honest.”
