When the star-studded ball was through, Woods and Vonn joined other celebrities at the after-party inside the Boom Boom Room on top of the Standard Hotel in Manhattan — where Woods had a little too much to drink, according to US Weekly.
An insider said, “Tiger looked uncomfortable” as Vonn, the 28-year-old beautiful blond Olympic skier, led him through the crowd.
The couple was reportedly spotted checking out the city’s skyline before taking their seats to enjoy conversation and drinks. Vonn and Woods even reportedly engaged in some PDA, holding hands and kissing for most of the night.
But as the drinks took effect, Woods supposedly got up and danced awkwardly before grabbing Vonn’s butt. She laughed about the affectionate tug but soon became a bit more serious as the night went on.
By 2 a.m., when the couple started to exit the party, Woods apparently fell while attempting to walk up a small flight of steps. According to a witness, his tumble caused him to freeze until a stern-faced Vonn came to his rescue, helping him to his feet and guiding him on their way out. Woods was reportedly swaying a bit after the fall.
The couple made their debut that night on the red carpet at the gala as Vogue’s guests. The magazine even dressed the duo for the occasion with Woods rocking the skinny tie.
Although Woods reportedly had a bit too much to drink at the after-party, Vonn had his back just like good old Nancy Spungen would. After all, they both said their relationship began as a friendship that grew into something more.
