Singer Sheryl Crow has come out in support of her ex-fiance Lance Armstrong and his decision to confess to doping while cycling.
In an interview with Entertainment Tonight, Crow said, “I think that honesty is always the best bet and that the truth will set you free. To carry around a weight like that would be devastating in the long run.”
Crow, 50, dated Armstrong, 41, from 2003-2006. During their time together, Armstrong completed his last two Tour de France competitions, according to the L.A. Times.
Since his confession, Armstrong has been stripped of all seven of his Tour de France titles.
Crow told Katie Couric, “I know how hard he worked to win those titles, and you know, it was hard to watch," Crow said, “I felt bad. I felt bad for him, I felt bad for his family, and I kind of felt like the rest of America. He is a hero that we watched and looked up to and admire,” reported USA Today.
The rest of Crow’s interview with Nancy O’Dell will air tonight on ET.
