Tiger Woods & Lindsey Vonn News: Vonn Admits Publicity of Relationship Is 'Tough'
Lindsey Vonn admitted that she is having a hard time dealing with her relationship with golf superstar Tiger Woods because of the media attention they are getting.
In an interview during the 2014 White House Correspondents' Dinner, Vonn said that she and Woods are doing their best to make their relationship work despite the constant media attention.
Vonn admitted that the publicity of her relationship with Woods is tough, but she is glad that they are coping because of the things they have in common, particularly their love of sports.
"It's been tough," Vonn said via E! News. "Having your life on display is never easy, but what I think connects us so well is sports and trying to be No. 1 in what we do. We have so much in common in that regard. We always come back to that. We always have roots."
Vonn also added that their trust for each other has been making their relationship work, saying that they are not thinking about what other people are saying about their romance.
"And no matter what anyone has to say around us, we know who we are and that's all that matters," Vonn said.
But does it include Vonn's rumored friendship with Woods' ex-wife Elin Nordegren?
Previous reports indicated that Vonn and Nordegren are now close friends and have been constantly communicating because Nordegren wants to know Vonn better, knowing that the skier will be around their children a lot.
"You'd think it would be weird, but Elin loves Lindsey and they talk all the time," one source was quoted as saying. "Elin likes that Lindsey is a strong woman. Lindsey is really good for Tiger. She's strong, opinionated and keeps him in line. Elin found that they are very similar and have a lot in common."
However, Vonn and Nordegren's close relationship could come to an end as rumors suggested that Woods does not want his ex-wife to talk to his current girlfriend.
"Elin knows all the skeletons in Tiger's closet," a Showbiz Spy source said. "He's afraid that she'll tell Lindsey something that will scare her away."
