Sheryl Crow apparently knew about Lance Armstrong's use of performance-enhancing drugs.
According to Celebuzz, the singer was mentioned twice in affidavits submitted to the United States Anti-Doping Association, which blew the whistle on Armstrong's performance-enhancing drug use. Crow was allegedly present when Armstrong talked about using performance-enhancing drugs to at least one teammate.
Armstrong's former teammate Frankie Andreu's affidavit says, "His girlfriend at the time, Sheryl Crow, was in the room and I felt uncomfortable talking about this in front of her so I did not say much." Frankie's wife, Betsy, said in her affidavit that "Lance's then girlfriend, Sheryl Crow, was in the room and Frankie did not want to discuss this in front of her."
Right. She might write a song about it or something.
It was not reported whether Crow was ever contacted by doping investigators about Armstrong.
Crow and Armstrong dated from 2003 until 2006. Armstrong won two of his seven titles during that time.
In September 2012, Crow opened up to Katie Couric after Armstrong was stripped of all seven of his Tour de France titles.
"I felt bad. I felt bad for him, I felt bad for his family and I kinda felt like the rest of America," she said. "He is a hero that we watched and looked up to and admired."
