Lance Armstrong’s dated his fair share of women, but a new tell-all is revealing that there’s a much younger name on his list that not many people know about — and that’s Ashley Olsen.
Just weeks after Armstrong broke up with designer Tory Burch in October 2007, he was spotted out on the town in NYC with Olsen.
During one date at the infamous Rose Bar in the Gramercy Park Hotel, “Ashley drank red wine, sat on his lap and they were making out all night,” an onlooker told the New York Post at the time. “They left together around 2 a.m.” Days later, they were spotted out again dining at the Waverly Inn.
According to the new book, Armstrong, 36, was told not to date the fifteen-years-younger fashionista by handlers who worried how it would affect his image.
One of his long-time friends, and head of Armstrong’s Livestrong Foundation, John Korioth “warned the thirty-six-year-old father of three that his May-December romance could damage his cancer work,” author Julie Macur writes.
“‘Whoa, dude, bad idea,’ Korioth said,” she claims. “‘You’ve got to put a stop to this right now.’”
Macur claims infatuated Armstrong answered, “She’s twenty-one … F**k you.”
The relationship would fizzle out in a few months, however, and Armstrong would move on to Kate Hudson.
It’s not too unlikely of a pair, especially considering Ashely’s sister Mary-Kate, 27, is reportedly engaged to her 44-year-old boyfriend Olivier Sarkozy. These two have a thing for older men.
Mary Kate has yet to speak out on the engagement, but she’s been seen out-and about with this gorgeous $81,000 vintage Cartier engagement ring.
The ring certainly is beautiful! The European-cut diamond weighs in at four carats, and is surrounded by 16 sapphires. The ‘petals’ are ‘single-cut’ diamonds.
If you’re not familiar with Olivier, he’s a french banker and has two kids ages 12 and 10 from his previous marriage.
“Mary-Kate’s family thinks Olivier is the best thing to happen to her,” an insider told Us Weekly of the former Full House star. “They love him. Mary-Kate has made him a better father. She remembers all the kids’ special events,” a source added to Us. “She thinks he’s a great dad.”
If Mary-Kate’s happy, that’s all that matters…right?
