What did Crow know about Armstrong's doping

Jan 22 2013, 11:08am CST | by

What exactly did Grammy winner Sheryl Crow know about her former boyfriend, Lance Armstrong, using performance-enhancing drugs, is the latest question being asked in the scandal involving the cyclist.

 

The question being asked by some following Lance Armstrong's admission about using performance-enhancing drugs during an interview, last week, with Oprah Winfrey, is whether his former girlfriend, Sheryl Crow, knew that the cyclist was using drugs.

According to various news reports, Grammy Award winner, Crow, was allegedly present at an Indiana hospital room in 2004 when Armstrong supposedly asked teammate, Frankie Andreu and his wife July about the cyclist's drug involvement. Armstrong and Crow began dating in 2003 and will engage for a short period before ending it in 2006.

Celebuzz has reported that Crow was named twice in court affidavits presented to the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency by Betsy Andreu. The pop singer has made no official comments about Armstrong's admitted doping.

Last year, in an interview with ABC News reporter, Katie Couric, Crow acknowledged that she felt bad for Armstrong and his family following doping allegations. At the time she described Armstrong as a hero that America looked up to and admired.

During Winfrey interview, which aired on OWN network, Armstrong never mentioned Crow. Following the interview, CNN spoke to Betsy Andreu for her reaction. She told CNN that she was disappointed by Armstrong's failure to tell the whole truth.

Armstrong, at times visibly shaken during the Winfrey interview, related the emotional toll that his doping as cause his family. In response to questions posed by Winfrey, Armstrong said his ex-wife, Kristin, knew enough about his use of performance enhancing drugs to ask him to stop lying and come clean.

The disgraced athlete said that he personally witnessed his oldest son, one of five children, Luke, 13, defending his fathers honor to others. Armstrong said that was when he decided he had to tell his son the truth.

Various critics have said Armstrong was not contrite enough in the first half of the interview, despite his obvious emotional reaction to Winfrey's questions. Armstrong confirmed rumors that he is participating in counseling to deal with issues.
