Later, Gator. NFL player Tim Tebow and former Miss Universe Olivia Culpohave apparently split — and it’s reportedly due to his virginity vow.
Us Weekly exclusively revealed last month that the beauty queen, 23, and quarterback, 28, were dating after being set up by a mutual friend.
“Tim’s super into her,” a source told Us at the time of the former Florida Gators superstar, who was released by the Philadelphia Eagles in September. Around that same time, he and Culpo — who split from Nick Jonas after a two-year relationship this past June — began dating.
According to the New York Daily News, which first reported the news on Thanksgiving Day, Nov. 26, the reason for the breakup was due to a lack of… well, sex. “He was really into her,” an insider close to Culpo told the paper.
“He was sending her love letters and cute notes and professing his love for her . . . She had to break up with him because she just couldn’t handle it. He still hits her up, but she just can’t deal with the sex thing. He’s pretty adamant about it, I guess.”
A source told Us last month that the athlete thought Culpo was “a goddess.” However, no goddess could make him change his sacred promise. In 2009, at the height of his college football fame, the devout Christian Heisman winner told a reporter that he was saving himself for marriage.
This isn’t the first celebrity Tebow’s dated since he skyrocketed to fame. In 2012, the football player dated another Jonas brother ex, Camilla Belle. “It just didn’t work out,” a source told Us at the time of reasons why he and the model split.
