• Joe Faraoni / ESPN Images(NEW YORK) -- Olympic skier Lindsey Vonn is threatening legal action after "intimate" photos of her and ex-boyfriend Tiger Woods surfaced online earlier this week.“It is an outrageous and despicable invasion of privacy for anyone to steal and illegally publish private intimate photos," Vonn's rep told ABC News in a statement on Tuesday."Lindsey will take all necessary and appropriate legal action to protect and enforce her rights and interests. She believes the individuals responsible for hacking her private photos as well as the websites that encourage this detestable conduct should be prosecuted to the fullest extent under the law,” the statement said.No information was given on the individuals or group responsible for the hack. The websites that allegedly published the illicit pictures were not named in the statement.The Olympic gold medalist, 32, and the golf superstar, 41, dated for almost three years before calling it off in early 2015."I will always cherish the memories that we've created together. Unfortunately, we both lead incredibly hectic lives that force us to spend a majority of our time apart. I will always admire and respect Tiger. He and his beautiful family will always hold a special place in my heart," Vonn wrote on Facebook at the time of the split.A request for comment from Woods' rep about the hack and the photos was not immediately returned to ABC News.

  • iStock/Thinkstock(NEW YORK) -- Coaches for the University of Texas football team brought in a magician to boost morale but one player was shocked to see what the man pulled out of his magic hat.Unrecruited senior offensive lineman Garrett Graf was in the spotlight as the magician’s assistant, unaware that it was part of a planned surprise, when the man pulled a card from a top hat with a special message."On behalf of the UT football program," the magician read last Wednesday night, "I’m pleased to inform you that you are now on a full academic scholarship."The entire room roared with applause and Graf immediately became overcome with emotion."There's a lot of guys here that deserve this just as much if not more than I do," Graf said, choking up. "I promise you guys I won't let you down and I appreciate this more than you can possibly imagine.“This has been a childhood dream of mine just to be here," Graf continued, thanking the coaches.Now listed at 6-foot-2 and 285 pounds, the fourth-year unrecruited player, aka a walk-on, did not see game action until he played in two games last year, according to the school’s 2017 football roster.So happy for @GarrettGraf75. Well deserved honor for a great teammate. #1-0 #ThisIsTexas pic.twitter.com/STukMeLped
