Lance Armstrong and Ashley Olsen dated briefly back in 2007, when witnesses saw them "making out all night" at the Gramercy Park Hotel in New York City. Armstrong, who confessed to doping last year, has done plenty of damage to his career in the intervening years.But at the time, his friends and handlers were more worried about his dating life.
A new book, Cycle Of Lies, written by Juliet Macur, has revealed that back in 2007 the Tour de France star was involved in a relationship with actress-turned-fashion designer Ashley Olsen — then 15 years younger than him — despite his manager advising him that the affair could damage his inspirational image.
According to , a tell-all book written by New York Times columnist Juliet Macur, Livestrong Foundation chief John Korioth "warned" the former cyclist that a relationship with the former child star could "damage his cancer work." "Whoa, dude, bad idea.
You've got to put a stop to this right now," Korioth allegedly said. Macur's book, which hit shelves last week, details the rise and fall of the former athlete.

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.
