If the reports are true, pro basketball player Kris Humphries doesn't have the best luck with women.

US Weekly is reporting that the NBA athlete, aka Mr. Kim Kardashian (still), was pursuing Lindsey Vonn, a skiiing superstar, just before Tiger Woods announced to the world that Vonn is his new flame.

“Woods wasn’t Vonn’s only suitor,” the magazine reported. “Bachelor No. 2 was none other than Kim Kardashian ex Kris Humphries.”

Vonn and Humphries are both from Minnesota. Last July, Humphries tweeted that the two hung out.

"Hanging with a fellow Minnesotan @lindseyvonn," he wrote. "Gotta get her back on lake minnetonka soon!"

However, a source close to Humphries denies he tried to date her.

"It's not true," the source told "They hung out with a group of friends last summer in Los Angeles. They met at a club that once and that was it."

Despite the rumors, legally, Humphries is off the market. Kim Kardashian filed for divorce from Humphries in October 2011, after just 72 days of marriage, and the two are still involved in a nasty drawn-out legal battle as Humphries tries to prove that Kardashian married him for publicity.

A few weeks ago the gold medalist skier, 28, and Woods, 37, confirmed they were an item on their Facebook pages and released several professionally-photographed, happy shots together.

Vonn divorced her former coach Thomas Vonn last year. Woods divorced wife of six years Elin Nordegren back in 2010 following a worldwind cheating scandal involving dozens of mistresses.

Woods has already introduced Vonn to his kids Sam, 5, and Charlie, 4, with Vonn giving the children skiing lessons, US Weekly reported.

Though the couple is outwardly happy, Vonn's friends have reportedly cautioned her that Woods could hurt her the same way he hurt Nordegren.

Vonn was reportedly a bit wary herself in the beginning, but has since grown more comfortable in the relationship.

"They have sat down and talked it out more than once," a source told People magazine. "He has explained his side and owned up to what he did wrong. He has been honest with her. She's not freaked out by his past."

Woods, who was considered the best golfer in the world for his impressive victories, has had a slump for the past five years. After the cheating scandal unfolded in 2009, the athlete said he was a "sex addict" and went to therapy. Several serious injuries sidelined him as well. This year, however, is turning out differently. The famed golfer has overcome his hiatus and is back to being number one.

Woods clinched a two-stroke victory in the Arnold Palmer Invitational in Florida on Monday, his third tournament win in the 2013 season.
