Lindsey Vonn is one of the most decorated and well-known skiers in her sport. From her performances on the slopes to her dating life, she’s often a topic for gossip fodder. On the other hand, ex-boyfriend P.K. Subban isn’t as well known. Subban plays in the NHL for the New Jersey Devils. The two athletes dated from 2018 until their breakup in late December 2020.
So, who has the higher net worth?
Lindsey Vonn’s career and net worth
Lindsey Vonn, a Minnesota native, learned to ski at a young age, Biography reports. She remembers many family trips to Colorado and Oregon so that she could ski year-round. In the late 1990s, Vonn and her family moved to Vail, Colorado, full time to be a part of Ski Club Vail, an exclusive program geared toward talented up-and-comers. She made it onto the U.S. Ski Team and participated in her first Winter Olympics in 2002 at the age of 17.
She went on to win three Olympic medals, one gold in downhill — the first for an American woman — and earned four overall World Cup championships. Vonn is one of only six women to win the World Cup in the five alpine skiing disciplines. During her career, she sustained numerous injuries that sidelined her and ultimately led to her retirement in 2019.
As one of the most decorated skiers, Lindsey Vonn has scored several endorsement deals, and they’ve added up over her career. According to Celebrity Net Worth, Vonn is worth an estimated $12 million.

Subban was born and raised in Toronto but grew up as a fan of the Montreal Canadiens. And his favorite team selected him in the 2007 NHL Draft. He played for Canada in the 2014 Olympics and won the gold medal in Sochi. Subban participated in the NHL All-Star Game in 2016, 2017, and 2018 and was named to the NHL First All-Star Team in 2013 and 2015.
He now plays for the New Jersey Devils, and his time in the NHL has been prosperous. According to Celebrity Net Worth, he’s estimated to be worth $35 million.
The power couple
Though Lindsey Vonn is certainly more recognized, that’s not necessarily the case in hockey circles. P.K. Subban is a popular player throughout the NHL. The couple began dating in 2018, and by the end of August 2019, Subban proposed. But Vonn wanted Subban to know how much he meant to her, so on Christmas Day 2019, she proposed to him.
The couple were serious about setting down roots and bought a house in Beverly Hills for $6.75 million. Hilton & Hyland shares that the home is located through a gated setting on more than a half-acre of land. It’s a single-story, 5,500-square-foot home complete with high ceilings, natural light, and modern minimalist vibes. Vonn and Subban are involved in production companies, part of the reason buying a home in Beverly Hills made sense.
With the COVID-19 pandemic complicating wedding planning, the couple was happy to enjoy each other’s company. However, both took to their social media accounts in late December to announce their split. Lindsey Vonn wrote on Instagram: “Over the past 3 years PK and I have had some incredible times together. He is a kind, good man, and someone I respect a great deal. However, after much consideration, we have decided to move forward separately. We will always remain friends and love each other immensely. We ask that you please respect our privacy during this time.”
