It feels like eons ago, but once upon a time Lance Armstrong actually dated Ashley Olsen!
We know, we thought it was an odd pairing at the time too! But while their romance isn't exactly news, a new tell-all book called Cycle of Lies by Julie Macur has some interesting new details on their fling!
The two hardly kept their relationship under wraps back in 2007 as they were spotted out and about multiple times, especially during their infamous hook up at the Rose Bar in the Gramercy Park Hotel where Ashley drank red wine while sitting on Lance's lap. The two were inseparable that night as they were seen making out.
But, apparently Lance's friends told him he shouldn't date the much younger Ashley because it would ruin his image!
John Korioth, head of the Livestrong Foundation was worried it could damage the reputation of his cancer charity and told the cyclist to end the relationship, but Lance was NOT having it and allegedly said:
"She’s twenty-one … F**k you."
Obviously things didn't exactly last long between the two, however, Lance was right about the relationship not tarnishing his brand and career!
We're pretty sure his doping scandal did that for him!
