Congratulations should be handed out to superstar golfer Tiger Woods who, at the ripe age of 33, stayed out of the scandalous world of celebrities even though he is one of the most recognizable and richest athletes in the world.
Stories popped up this weekend of Tiger being involved is a traffic accident outside his house when his SUV hit a fire hydrant and crashed into a neighbors tree.
Tiger’s trophy wife, Elin Nordegren, allegedly knocked out a window to get Tiger out of the SUV and pulled him to the lawn. Tiger was bruised and cut and later released. [view news report video]
Now the fun begins.
TMZ, and a few other news outlets, are reporting that Elin Nordegren actually went ape-shit on Tiger and caused the accident after attacking Tiger when she believed Tiger was cheating on her.
We’re told he said his wife had confronted him about reports that he was seeing another woman. The argument got heated and, according to our source, she scratched his face up. We’re told it was then Woods beat a hasty retreat for his SUV — but according to our source, Woods says his wife followed behind with a golf club. As Tiger drove away, she struck the vehicle several times with the club.
We’re told Woods became “distracted,” thought the vehicle was stopped, and looked to see what had happened. At that point the SUV hit the fire hydrant and then hit a tree. [source TMZ]
We love a good scandal. And to go all Jack Nicholson on Tiger’s ass is just classic.
But who’s the other woman? We hear it’s a partygirl by the name of Rachel Uchitel, pictured below.
She’s the one on the left. [rimshot....ty].
Rachel Uchitel has been identified as the woman that Tiger Woods is allegedly having an affair with.
Uchitel is a 34-year-old New Yorker who has a reputation of dating married celebrities, having previously been at the center of an affair scandal involving actor David Boreanaz. [via]
Sports by Brooks has a ton of pictures of Rachel Uchitel if you’re interested.
Poor Tiger. He’s gonna have to use some of that endorsement money to get a nice lawyer or go Kobe on his wife and start sucking up with expensive clothing and jewelry.
