Tiger Woods girlfriend Lindsey Vonn is being tested early with a dose of heavy celebrity tabloid publicity, the beautiful US skiing champion just began dating Tiger in November and their first red carpet event was this weekend and the headlines followed.
Their first celebrity after party together was this week as well, and Us Weekly claims Tiger was tipsy at one of the late night gatherings.
Woods was busy preparing for The 2013 Players Championship over last weekend and earlier this week and went from the practice tee and golf attire to a tux with Lindsey looking spectacular on his arm at the Met Gala in New York.
After the new power couple attend The Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute gala benefit, "Punk: Chaos to Couture" on Monday in New York, they were off to some of the parties and that's when some photos of a strange looking Tiger were snapped by the celebrity paparazzi.
Headlines and speculation hit shortly after, many asking or claiming that Tiger Woods was drunk at the Met Benefit and showing the photos.
Us Weekly has this little tidbit from a source who claims they were at the party when Tiger and Lindsey decided to hit the limo at a reported 2 a.m. after leaving the Boom Boom Room atop The Standard Hotel.
"When it was time to go, around 2 a.m., a seemingly tipsy Woods fell while walking up a small flight of stairs—and didn't move from the spot until Vonn, clenching her teeth and looking embarrassed, helped him up and guided him (swaying a bit as he walked) to the exit, according to a witness."
More here on the claims.
Photos showed some strange looking pictures of Tiger, his eyes were wide and seemingly a bit glassed over.
Check out the pic above, it was snapped on the red carpet, Tiger and Lindsey look great together (and sober).
