Lindsey Vonn recently announced that she was dating golfer Tiger Woods but the Olympic skier almost ended up in the arms of another man: Kris Humphries.
According to the NY Post, Woods and Humphries were pursuing Vonn at the same time. Vonn ultimately chose Tiger but she almost ended up dating Kim Kardashian’s former husband.
A source told Radar Online: “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.”
And it appears that there is at least some truth to the source’s information. Back in June, Humphries and Vonn exchanged a couple of tweets about hanging out together at Lake Minnetonka.
Humphries wrote: “Hanging with a fellow Minnesotan
@lindseyvonn. Gotta get her back on lake minnetonka soon!”
Vonn responded: “I know! Def need to get back!!”
Humphries ultimately lost his attempt to woo Vonn but that may have been a good thing. A rumor has been spreading that Vonn and Tiger’s relationship is just a PR stunt. Now, Humphries may have more experience at staged relationships but Vonn’s PR team was obviously looking to hook her name to a bigger star.
Or, you know, Vonn and Woods might actually like each other.
What do you think? Would Kris Humphries and Lindsey Vonn make a good couple? Did Vonn make the right choice by going with Tiger Woods?

According to Hollywood Life, Humphries and Vonn were never romantically involved. A source told the gossip site: “It’s not true. They hung out with a group of friends last summer in Los Angeles. They met at a club that once and that was it.”
