The U.S. Department of Justice's lawsuit that was looming in the distance has now crashed down on top of Lance Armstrong, and we're hearing that someone who used to love him might have to testify against him!
Lance better hope there's a little love left, which we wouldn't bet on, because Kristin Armstrong is his EX-WIFE!
The DoJ filed a 33 page court document, and brings about the possibility that she may be called as a witness in the trial. She and Lance were married from 1998 to 2003 and has never made a statement about his doping. It's alleged, though, that she witnessed Landis transactions!
Which means she witnessed Lance Armstrong supply doping products to Landis!
Here's what the DoJ's deposition mentioned:
"Mr Armstrong gave him [Landis] a package of 2.5ml testosterone patches in front of Mr Armstrong's wife at the time, Kirsten [sic] Armstrong."
"[The following year, he] happened to encounter Mr Armstrong along with his wife and children in the entryway of the building. Mr Armstrong then handed Mr Landis a box of EPO in full view of his then wife and three children."
For a man with so many secrets, Lance sure did a lot of stuff in front of future witnesses! Ha!
Just the fact that these two episodes have been filed, we're willing to bet they're going to subpoena Kristin Armstrong to appear as a witness under oath — and potentially have her testify against her former lover! The dramz!! LOLz!
All of this could have been avoided, in case we're forgetting, if Lance Armstrong wasn't a liar and a cheater.
