Lindsey Vonn Denies Cheating on Tiger Woods at Jay-Z Concert
Not according to the Olympic skiers publicist. In a story recently published by the National Enquirer, it was alleged Vonn had recently been seen making out with an unknown man at a Jay-Z concert. According to Rick Chandler of Sports Grid , Vonns representatives have denied these charges vehemently. Andy Lyons/Getty Images There is not an ounce of truth in this clearly made up story, one of Vonns representatives told reporters. What was the whole story? A lot of mouth-play in the backstage area, according to the Enquirer. The publications sources claim Vonn and a group of female friends made their way backstage after a Jay-Z and Justin Timberlake concert in Miami when the Olympian ran into a man she appeared to know quite well. According to the source, via Radar Online , Vonn threw herself into his arms and started making out with him. “He was a tall, good-looking man, in his mid-40s, with greying temples,” the source alleged. “They were really going at it.” Vonn was in Miami at the time for a LVTakesMiami promotion and later tweeted about the concert. Tabloid trash, right? Well, maybe. Common sense urges you to toss this story aside along with the UFO sightings and six-headed orphan stories magazines like the Enquirerenjoy running,but something makes this one more difficult to ignore: The Enquirerbroke the story about Woods cheating scandal in 2009. Indeed, the Enquirer figured out Woods had been cheating on his then-wife,Elin Nordegren, with cocktail waitresses. No one believed the Enquirer then either. Without proof, well have to wait and see. This could easily shape up to nothing, but it could also be something. Even if it were true, however, Woods doesnt have much of a leg to stand on when it comes to infidelity. Any argument he has with Vonn would be short-lived at best. She has a pretty big trump card.

The first single will be out this winter, along with Love’s memoir, but the singer told New York magazine at Hole drummer Scott Lipps’ book launch Monday that she needs something “modern” — and that’s where Jay Z comes in. “We have the single, which comes out when my book comes out this winter. But we’re missing a song that’s modern. … I would love to do a duet with Jay Z,” Love said. “Wouldn’t that be great? [Gwyneth Paltrow] asked him if he heard my version of ’99 Problems’ and he said it was brilliant, so…” We’re betting on Love to make this happen, because it could just lead to a masterpiece. Like Jay Z supposedly said, her “99 Problems” update was pretty brilliant. Plus, Hova kind of owes it to the 49-year-old rocker, who gave him permission to use Nirvana’s “Smells Like Teen Spirit” in his Justin Timberlake duet “Holy Grail.” Love and Jay could be the next addition to our list of unexpected collaborations. In the meantime, head over to New York magazine’s The Cut to see what Love had to say about Katy Perry being “boring” and her good friend Paltrow’s recent Vanity Fair controversy .

Posted 9/6/13 4:15 pm EST by MTV News in Music News By Sowmya Krishnamurthy It’s the fall of dueling hip-hop tours. Kanye West had just announced his ” Yeezus” tour with Kendrick Lamar, when big brother Jay Z jumped in to proclaim his ” Magna Carter World Tour. ” Did Jay Z steal Kanye’s thunder or is this a grand plan by The Throne for world domination? Fans took to Twitter to share their excitement. Some felt that Jay’s tour overshadowed Kanye’s announcement. “Jay Z really be stealing Kanye thunder bruh” said JScroggins. I SWEAR YE AND JAY SNEAK DISS EACH OTHER Tyler, The Creator (@fucktyler) September 6, 2013 “Kanye West and Jay Z always in competition” added Sebastard , while Omni threw in “So Kanye West announces his Yeezus tour and less than a few hours later Jay-Z announces his Magna Carta tour… Coincidence? I think not.” Wehther intentional or not, even Tyler, The Creator threw in his two cents: “I SWEAR YE AND JAY SNEAK DISS EACH OTHER.” Others found overlapping tours as just another promotional vehicle for the old friends, especially as they possibly prepare to release Watch the Throne 2. “Kanye & Jay Z are smart as usual, both their solo promotional campaigns intertwined, in preparation for WTT 2” SkinDeepSA predicted . True. Jayz & kanye want me to go broke; MCHG tickets go on sale next Thursday & then Yeezus on Friday Sunshine Smith (@SunshineSmith) September 6, 2013 With both members of The Throne out on the road, it would provide ample opportunities for new material from Watch The Throne 2 to be previewed to tease the album. Either way, most agreed that tours featuring rap’s biggest names would be good for hip-hop…if not for wallets.
