Report: White, Refaeli cozy in NYC
Bar Refaeli had complained she "doesn't get hit on by guys," but Olympic gold medalist Shaun White gave it a shot over Memorial Day weekend.
The snowboarding champ was spotted with Maxim's newly crowned "hottest woman in the world" at lounge Sway in New York's SoHo "dancing, hugging and kissing" into the wee hours of Monday morning, sources said.
White was first seen entering the Spring Street club with five friends after midnight Monday, but sources say he was mostly concerned with monitoring his cell phone.
"He was distracted," a witness said. "He was pacing, going outside and checking his cell."
It soon became clear why, when stunning model Refaeli arrived to meet White about 1:30 a.m. local time.
The half-pipe hero and the Israeli ex of Leonardo DiCaprio promptly hit the dance floor, where they were going for the gold in the canoodle-a-thon. "They were all over each other," our spy said. "They were dancing, hugging, kissing — you name it."
Refaeli was seen leaving Sway at "around 3 a.m.," and White gallantly walked her out and let her take his car home.
White then returned to the club for more fun and was chatting with two girls. A source close to the athlete pointed out the beauties were just friends and part of the group White arrived with.
His posse enjoyed bottles of Jack Daniel's, vodka and wine at a VIP table, and left en masse, forgetting to leave a tip.
Reps for White and Refaeli, who also was spotted cycling in Central Park over the weekend, had no comment Tuesday night.
