I must say I’ve been mildly surprised at the revelations this week that Tiger has had one – or possibly many mistresses.
As Caroline Overington tweeted yesterday:
“Some part of my heart must still be soft, silly and pure, because I would not have picked Tiger as a love rat.”
After earlier denying claims that he’d had an affair with a New York woman called Rachel Uchitel who mysteriously appeared in Melbourne at the same time he was there (she backed him up and denied it as well), another woman sold her story to a US tabloid, complete with incriminating voicemails and texts.
Harder to deny that.
Of course it all started with a Very Odd car crash, captured hysterically in this hypnotic report from Chinese TV:
And now, the Chicago Tribune reports….
“I have let my family down and I regret those transgressions with all of my heart,” Woods said in the statement. “I am dealing with my behavior and personal failings behind closed doors with my family. Those feelings should be shared by us alone.”
UsWeekly has reported Woods and his wife, , have a prenuptial agreement worth $300 million. If that number is correct — or close — and the two divorced, it would be the most expensive celebrity divorce in history, exceeding the $150 million-plus paid his wife, Juanita, in their settlement.
The cocktail waitress, Jaimee Grubbs, told UsWeekly she had a voice mail of Woods.
“Hey, it’s, uh, it’s Tiger. I need you to do me a huge favor,” the message said. “Um, can you please, uh, take your name off your phone. My wife went through my phone. And, uh, may be calling you. … You gotta do this for me. Huge. Quickly. All right. Bye.”
Also, radaronline.com reported that , the New York bar hostess who initially denied an affair with Woods, will admit to it and that her attorney, Gloria Allred, has scheduled a news conference for Thursday.
