Tiger Loses Yet Another Sponsor: Gillette!

Dec 13, 2009 10:05 AM


Everybody's hating on the golf pro since his car crash Thanksgiving weekend!

A spokesperson for Gillette says the following: "As Tiger takes a break from the public eye, we will support his desire for privacy by limiting his role in our marketing programs."

Hmm, kind of a vague statement. Like, we support you by distancing ourselves from you!

In other news, AT&T is said to be reevaluating their relationship with Woods. Is there anybody left? Will no one stand by Tiger's side during this mess?

Tiger Woods' most high-profile endorser, Nike, has said that they plan on sticking with Woods during this difficult time.

In a statement, Nike said "Tiger has been part of Nike for more than a decade. He is the best golfer in the world and one of the greatest athletes of his era. We look forward to his return to golf. He and his family have Nike's full support."

Of course, unlike his deals with Gatorade, Gillette and Tag Heuer, Tiger is a partner in Nike, he gets a cut from the sales of Nike Golf apparel, footwear, golf equipment and golf balls in addition to his estimated $20 million a year contract.

But the fallout from Woods' various affairs has just begun. It remains to be seen how much it costs him both personally and professionally.

Las Vegas Madam Claims She Provided Tiger Woods With "10 Or 15 Girls" At Once!

Dec 12, 2009 09:45 AM


The revelations into Tiger Woods' insatiable sex habit just keep coming.

Las Vegas madam Michelle Braun (who says Woods' alleged mistresses Jaime Jungers and Holly Sampson were once on her books) claimed she used to supply Tiger with "10 or 15 girls" in one wild weekend.

"He had a pretty big appetite for girls. Never just one girl. He would want to set up a whole weekend of partying and have ten or 15 girls 24/7," she told the NY Daily News, adding that "He liked girl-on-girl. He had sex with them together. He was tough to keep up with - days at a time on a booze and sex bender."

But the escort who was one of his favorites was Playboy model Loredana Jolie (pictured.)

"He went out with her four or five times," Braun said. "She took part in group sex. They met up in 2006 or early 2007. I'd say he paid $15,000 for her."

Though alleged mistresses Rachel Uchitel and Jaime Jungers deny being paid to have sex with Tiger, Braun produced a 1099 that proves Jungers was lying when she said "prostitution claims 100 percent false."

Last month Braun was sentenced to three years' probation for money laundering and transporting a prostitute over state lines.

BREAKING NEWS - Tiger Woods Admits Cheating, Announces "Indefinite" Break From Pro Golf

Dec 11, 2009 04:31 PM

Tiger Woods just posted this statement on his website, telling fans he'll take a break from golf while he and his family "heal:"
    "I am deeply aware of the disappointment and hurt that my infidelity has caused to so many people, most of all my wife and children. I want to say again to everyone that I am profoundly sorry and that I ask forgiveness. It may not be possible to repair the damage I've done, but I want to do my best to try.

    I would like to ask everyone, including my fans, the good people at my foundation, business partners, the PGA Tour, and my fellow competitors, for their understanding. What's most important now is that my family has the time, privacy, and safe haven we will need for personal healing.

    After much soul searching, I have decided to take an indefinite break from professional golf. I need to focus my attention on being a better husband, father, and person.

    Again, I ask for privacy for my family and I am especially grateful for all those who have offered compassion and concern during this difficult period."

X17 Poll

Is Tiger Woods' admission of "infidelity" sufficient?

He should have done it sooner.
He's said more than enough -- the public should leave him alone.
Nothing he could say will make up for what he's done.
He's handled the situation perfectly.

The View Apologizes For Calling Rachel Uchitel A Hooker

Dec 11, 2009 02:15 PM


On The View this morning, Joy Behar made an oh so clever joke about alleged Tiger mistress Rachel Uchitel, saying, "Uchitel she's a hooker." In case you didn't get it, Rachel's name is pronounced "You-ca-tell," so we're guessing Joy (or whoever wrote the joke) was delighted to drop it on the show this morning.

However, Rachel and her attorney Gloria Allred weren't nearly as tickled, and they even released a statement demanding a retraction, saying the joke was "false and defamatory and highly offensive to [Rachel]." Looks like the folks at ABC feel bad about it, as a rep for The View released the following statement:

    "Joy Behar made a play on Ms. Uchitel's name. This was intended as a joke. We sincerely apologize for the choice of words and for any misimpression the joke may have created."

One Of Tiger's Alleged Mistresses Says Woods' Wife Elin Shouldn't Expect Apology From Her

Dec 11, 2009 09:29 AM

Although Jaimee Grubbs already issued a public apology to Tiger Woods' wife Elin Nordegren, the other Jaime, Jaime Junger says "I don't believe that I owe her an apology."

In an interview with Dateline airing tonight, the alleged Woods mistress says, "I feel like that's his-- that's his business. Everybody makes mistakes. This wasn't something that I did yesterday or a month ago or a year ago. This was years ago. I was younger. And I'm not saying that what I did then was right. But-- I'm certainly not gonna say that it was wrong. I believe everything happens for a reason. And-- no, I-- I don't-- I don't believe that I owe her apology-- an apology. I mean, I-- I'm sorry for everything that's going down. And what may happen to her kids' fe-- their kids' future, you know? But no, I don't-- I don't believe I owe her an apology. No."

She goes on to say that her relationship with Tiger was "way more than sex." "t was very-- it was very emotional," she said. "I mean, we had-- I felt like we had a lot-- or I had a lot of feelings towards him. And he showed me that he had a lot of feelings towards me. It wasn't just a sexual situation, it was-- I believe, it-- it was love. I loved him. I still love him."

She also pulls an Uchitel, saying allegations of her being a hooker are "100 percent false."

Like her boobs, right?

Tiger Woods' "Mistress" Rachel Uchitel Is NOT A Hooker!

Dec 10, 2009 08:07 PM

uchitelhooker.jpgHere you have it, folks ... Tiger Woods' first alleged mistress, Rachel Uchitel is NOT a hooker. I repeat, Rachel Uchitel is NOT a hooker!

But apparently Joy Behar of The View thinks she is. Beher spouted this classic line today on the show: "You-ka-tell she's a hooker."

Why Uchitel's attorney felt it necessary to transcribe that phoenetically in her press release that landed in our inbox an hour ago is anyone's guess. But maybe Ms. Allred's got a sense of humor???

Check out the statement released by her office:

    Today on 'The View' on ABC television a co-host called our client Rachel Uchitel a 'Hooker.' The co-host said 'Yeah,.... You-ka-tell she’s a hooker'. This statement about Ms. Uchitel is false and defamatory and highly offensive to her. Rachel is very upset by that statement which has been viewed and now read all around the world.

    This statement was very hurtful to Rachel because it is not true. Even if the host said it in a joking way Rachel is not amused, because she values her reputation and her reputation has been damaged by this statement as it is completely false.

    We are sending a letter to ABC Television immediately demanding a retraction on the View as soon as possible. We hope that they will do the right thing and retract this statement immediately."

Tiger Woods' Lawyers Ban Publication Of Nude Photos & Video In UK

Dec 10, 2009 04:47 PM


Tiger's bringin' out the big guns!

This just in: Tiger Woods' UK lawyers now have a court order forbidding all British publications - printed or online - from publishing "any photographs, footage or images taken or obtained of the claimant naked or any naked parts of the claimant's body or of him involved in any sexual activity."

Damn! Guess we won't be seeing any revealing pix or video of Tiger soon. So does this mean such content definitely exists?

The letter being sent 'round also has this to say: "Our client [Tiger Woods] is not aware of any images and in any event he would not have consented to any such photographs being taken nor would he have consented to the dissemination or exploitation of the same."

Guess that's a no! Well, sorta.
