2020 has been hard on New Jersey Devils defenseman P.K. Subban and it might have just gotten worse.
On Tuesday, the blue liner and Olympic skiing champion Lindsey Vonn have announced that they have split. They shared the news on their respective social media accounts. They used the same picture and posted similar captions.
This is Subban's:
“Lindsey is one of the most kind and caring people I know. I will always treasure our time as a couple together and the many laughs we shared.
After much consideration, we have decided to move forward separately. We will always remain friends and love each other immensely. We ask that you respect our privacy during this time.”
Vonn shared the news in similar fashion, posting this:
“Over the past 3 years PK and I have had some incredible times together. He is a kind, good man, and someone I respect a great deal.However, after much consideration we have decided to move forward separately. We will always remain friends and love each other immensely. We ask that you please respect our privacy during this time.”
When she co-hosted of the 2020 Sports Illustrated Awards on December 20, the star looked stunning in a red dress but there was no sign of Subban. She did have on her engagement ring, however. They were last seen together on her Instagram account in October. The couple went on a Bahamas vacation then to celebrate Vonn’s birthday.
They got engaged in August of last year and their wedding was rumoured to have gotten postponed, though both of them mentioned it was due to COVID-19 and that they were in no rush.
However now we all know, there will be no wedding.
This has been a tough year for Subban, who certainly hopes to get back on track on NHL ice and focus on his career.
Vonn has three Olympic medals, including a 2010 gold in downhill. She has since retired. Subban, who won the NHL’s Norris Trophy for the 2012-13 season as the league’s best defenseman, was traded by the Predators to the Devils before the 2019-20 season and maintains he is still a top blue liner in the NHL. Prove it, P.K.!
