TMZ: Tiger paid Uchitel $10 million to zip it

According to TMZ, Tiger Woods paid Rachel Uchitel, his first alleged mistress, $10 million to keep quiet. Uchitel reportedly was prepping to hold a tell-all press conference, before Woods’ team made what TMZ characterized as a “huge” offer.

The newest in a seemingly never-ending stream details from his extra-marital affairs comes just four days before Woods will face the press in a full-blown news conference at the Masters.

In other tales of Tiger mistresses, Joslyn James told a sports talk radio show that she left the porn industry at Woods’ request. James also told “The Morning Jones” that she didn’t think Woods’ apology was sincere and that his inner circle was aware of their three-year affair.

$10M…just to be quiet?! What a waste. If I was his agent, I could’ve gotten her to say “…all we did was kiss” for only $1M. Tiger…call me!

Who cares!

That’s the way the game is played. Don’t have time to worry about Tiger, or anyone else for that fact. I have my own life to live. None of that money is coming out of my pocket, and noe of it is going in my pocket.

Where’s the “real” news? Too much time is spent on this type of non sense.

Why isn’t anybody coming down on the women? They knew he was married. People are acting like they did nothing wrong. They are acting like they are the victim. They knew what they were doing. They are sitting back and getting rich off of their deceit. They are acting like they are so honest themselves.

So, hope he...

Madoff – STOLE 45-65Billion – Headlines three weeks and gone – Toll thousands lost their life’s fortune and many hundreds of HELP organizations had t close down. ENRON 65 Billion the ones at the top knew and would not let the low workers WITHDRAW (pun added) headlines 4 weeks. Wall Street Melt … TAB still running and the leaders leaving with millions of other people’s money No jail time. Moral of the story TIGER you did not screw enough people cause this would have been out of the headlines several months AGO. No Way Outta Here

Tiger is like scum off the bottom of shoes…….he’s two faced, untrustworthy and depsicable to ignore and be irresponsible to his family the way he has been. For anyone to embrace this piece of trash puts them in the same category as him. He should be admonished by the press, the golf association, the sponsors and his peers. The fans should boycott and protest his appearance at any golf course, especially the Masters.

I knew he was trash when he sued the artist in Alabama for a painting and lithographs that he did when Tiger won the Masters. Anyone with a brain new that the artist had the right to do art on a celebrity without any approval when an event was significant but Tiger sued him anyway. Fortunately the national artists association stepped in with one of the brightest attorneys (now that’s an oxymoron) and after the attorneys got rich, the artist won the case. This kind of arrogance Tiger has tells everyone the kind of person he is…. arrogant, self centered, childish, insecure, irresponsible, inconsiderate, noncompassionate, an undesireable.

I’m glad the women came forward and ratted him out. His negligence of family and putting his wife in danger of aids and venereal disease is unrepentable. His game will suffer and he will never recover from his irresponsibility and untrustworthiness.

We all have our opinions and truly entitled, but the thing of it is how many of you haven’t done some type of desire even being married to say oh I wish I had him or her. Well you know what you are no better than Tiger he acted upon it but it began with a thought, the thought is just as sinful as the act, let him/her who is guiltless please voice your opinion because you are entitled but if you had a thought. “Shut up keep it moving”. Frankly I’m tired of the rags putting peoples personal lives on display frankly I think it should be some type of law as to how far you can go. This thing with Tiger happened in Nov. give it a rest. I need to know if I will be able to continue to live in my home, is my 401K safe, will I be able to get my social security is it worth doing a reverse mortage, can I buy a Toyota and feel safe. People come on. You all have no respect for Tigers wife and children by continuing to put this in print, we don’t know where he is in his marriage but if he is trying to work it out good for him and what if he did pay what ever her name is 10million to shutup good for her keep it moving. You beat up on Tiger but what about the women he was involved with they knew he was married but still continued to fool around with him, they knew who he was and that crap about we thought he was separated is a bunch of croc that also would have been headlines, so it there turn beat up on them. Regardless what you all say he is still the greatest golfer ever so now. Have a good day.

SO WHAT ?????????

TMZ says it so now it is so. I doubt seriously if this guy paid her jack which is why she is making her way around the media circuit. We must watch and see how people behave and this is not behavior of someone who just received 10 million dollars from someone to do no more than to be quiet. I am certain that none of the media outlets are paying her 10 million dollars for her story so why would she talk? This is a story because Tiger is not talking and refuses to refute any of the allegations. This is the only reason this story even has feet.

and most of you hae or would never cheat; not…. You sit back and judge Tiger and determine his personality and moral standards. You are the idiots for what you do everyday. You do not kow this man, do not know the situation. Heck, this country wa built on racism, racism that still exists and the benefits from ti as well. People who still ry to keep control are the ones who are blasting Tiger Woods; yes probably you who blog here.

Tiger’s business is just that, HIS BUSINESS. Not yours and certainly not mine. Who cares if he cheated, who cares if he paid someoen to shut up. Thats his business.

You are nothing because you cant do anything w/o your racist ways to support your control. IDIOTS!!!

Tiger is just man. That’s all. He’s not Jesus or the pope. If you gave any straight 20 something man in America more money than he would ever need, worldwide exposure, and opportunity, the same thing would happen. Unfortunately, Tiger didn’t respect the vows of marriage or the burden that comes with his celebrity status. That’s his cross to bear.
Like any young man, he made some bad choices, obviously. If this is his greatest mistake then he’s still a pretty good guy in my opinion. There’s not one allegation of rape or abuse from any of these women. I’m pretty sure that they all knew that he was married, still nobody nobody has called any of these women “homewreckers” and “trash” publicly. You would think he’d given them all roofies, given the disdain directed toward him and the victim status afforded these women. Did any of the women involved shun his advances and/or contact his wife to tell her of his attempts to “deflower” them? No, they gave it up before he could change his mind. No one is perfect. Alot of these comments are fueled by nothing more than pure envy.
As far as Tiger not being a role model for the children….Parents should be the biggest role models for their children! The ball has been dropped, but not only by Tiger. Marriages end everyday all over the world and adultery probably plays a part in over half of them, leaving the children to live through these trainwrecks.
As a society, we need to stop judging people when we don’t even know them. We know the gossip and the characters that they play on TV, but we don’t know them any more than they know us. How would you feel if your most secret of secrets was broadcast on TV every night for months?
I pray that Tiger and his wife can survive this mess and raise their children in relative peace. Shame on the people who pray for anything other than that.

Tiger Woods is a great golfer, and a very public figure, so he and his handlers should have been smarter about his rampant marital indiscretions. I don’t believe that he’s sorry about his bad boy behavior, just sorry he was caught. He has enough money and talent to work it out for his career and for his family, if he cares about his family at all. Sadly, cheaters will always cheat again, no matter how much or how little money they have, or how much they have betrayed and hurt their families.

Tiger is a seriously flawed man who happens to be the best golfer ever. As for me, I watch golf and if he happens to be on the screen I will watch him. He is a hypocrite, like many of us are, and as such, he deserves no praise at all outside of his last golf shot. When it comes to being a human being, he is at the bottom of the totem pole, which has a broad foundation. But don’t revere him, he doesn’t deserve it. Good and faithful men are the ones who deserve praise. People who appear to give him a pass wiith “he simply has a lot of money and gets a lot of nookie”, as if that is normal, are also supporting that totem pole.

Two consenting adults should be able to do whatever they want as long as it’s legal and not hurting anyone. If you want to run around and sleep with lots of people, go right ahead. No judgments here. But you cannot commit to monogamy and the sanctity of marriage with someone, then lie to them and betray them, AND expect nobody to get in your business and judge you when you get caught, especially as a celebrity. Just don’t get married in the first place. Then there is no issue. Also, geography or demography has nothing to do with this type of behavior–it can happen anywhere and irrespective of where you come from. We should all try to live life by the simplicity of the Golden Rule: “Do unto others…” I’m sure Tiger would not have liked it very much if his wife did to him what he did to her…

The story is getting stranger and stranger. Just read also that Clemson U.has a 13% ownership in Hooters Resturants. And that on top of the news that Rice U. owned the land that the old Yankee stadium was built on! They bought it from The Knights of Columbus. Whats next in these troubled times?

What other secret information this Uchitel woman could have about Tiger that has not been made public already, homosexual romps, illegal drugs use? She was paid off for her silence, but it appears to me that she is disclosing the information in small doses to the media through a third party. Meanwhile she remains innocently in the background trying to repair her w.h.o.r.e. image because she is still hoping to get back with Tiger as soon as he is divorced. Tiger my boy, what else do you have to loose? Come public for once and for all, save your money and get rid of this extortionist and the others. Be free!!!!!!!!

Good grief this should be he and his wife’s business. His bedroom behavior is none of my business. I wish they would quit talking about it, if for no reason other than to spare his wife additional shame. Half of you have cheated, we all lie, no one is perfect, and none but the Lord have the right to judge. Worry about your own back yards and let him handle his. Please take this nonsense out of the news!
