Yeah, Tiger Woods apparently loaned Lindsey Vonn his plane. So? Wouldn’t you?

Man, it's tough being a global celebrity. You do a friend a favor by sending them a plane, as friends do, and all of a sudden the press is all over it, making a big deal. Can't a multimillionaire get a little peace?

By now you've probably heard that Tiger Woods allegedly sent his plane to help Lindsey Vonn get home following her injury during the world championships in Austria. TMZ snapped Vonn boarding the plane, and other outlets, including the Swiss tabloid-eseque newspaper Blick (as cited by Ski Racing Magazine) also reported that the plane was Woods'. While planes are indeed trackable and identifiable by their tail numbers, Woods' plane is private and therefore does not register its travels, and as you can see above, there's no plane number visible in that photo.

Woods and Vonn have been the subject of plenty of rumors; Woods' story you know, and Vonn finalized her divorce in January. So there you go. However, Woods has made no public statement on the matter, and Vonn actually released a statement trying to shut down the rumors:

"Lindsey is currently in the midst of the World Cup season in Europe," the statement read. "Her focus is solely on competing and on defending her titles and thus she will not participate in any speculation surrounding her personal life at this time."

Woods isn't scheduled to play again for several weeks. We're certain that he'll be forthcoming about his private life at his next press conference.
