Olympic skier Lindsey Vonn, who recently confirmed she is divorcing her husband of four years, took to Twitter this week to quell rumors that she is dating Denver Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow.
“Hearing a lot of crazy rumors but rest assured I am NOT dating Tim Tebow (or anyone else),” Vonn tweeted. “I’m just friends with his family. xo, LV”
According to US Weekly, the Tebow-Vonn dating rumors began last week, when Lindsey was photographed “Tebowing” after winning the World Cup Super-G at Beaver Creek on Wednesday.
“Just because I ‘Tebow’ doesn’t mean I’m dating him,” Vonn said at the time.
After setting the story straight, Vonn was then spotted in the Tebow family box during Sunday’s Broncos game, but her rep said not to read anything into it.
Following Sunday’s game, Vonn,27, wrote in the Denver Post that she got to know Tebow at the ESPY’s, and they spent more time together at other events. She also knows most of his family now, Vonn wrote.
“I’m just friends with the family. Tim presented me with my ESPY award this year, and we kind of chatted. I said, ‘If you want to come up to Vail and ski, let me know.’ [Tim’s other brother] Robby invited me to one of their games a few weeks ago. I pretty much know their whole family now. They’re great people.”
