Maybe the Tim Tebow romance rumors were true after all?!?
According to reports, Olympic skier Lindsey Vonn and former coach Thomas Vonn have officially divorced.
The ex-lovebirds were married since 2007, but unfortunately things didn't work out between them, and they split up.
No word on how the couple will divvy up their goodies has been revealed, but Lindsey will be keeping her $1.1 million Park City, Utah home that she bought a year before she became one with Thomas.
Guess Tebow has a new place to lie his head! LOLz. We kid, we kid!!
