Olympic skier Lindsey Vonn – aka Tiger Woods’ new girlfriend – had an unexpected encounter at the glamorous Council of Fashion Designers of America Awards this week in New York.

The pee man was there.

The New York Post reports that Lindsey was forced to “pee in a cup” by officials from the International Olympic Committee during the ceremony at Lincoln Center on Monday,

Lindsey was there as a guest of fashion designer Cynthia Rowley and was wearing a white, slinky, custom-made gown by Rowley.

According to the Post, Lindsey – who is currently training for the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia – received a call on her cell phone from the Olympics folks during the ceremony. IOC drug testers were waiting for her outside the center.

Once inside, “Lindsey met the IOC at the bathroom. Cynthia stood guard outside, and no one was allowed to enter the bathroom. They were in there for about five minutes,” a source told the Post.

Sources told the Post she passed the test.

No word on who held her dress out of the way.
