Read Tiger Woods Press Release, Hear Tiger Woods Voicemail

Hey everybody! Sorry I’ve been M.I.A. lately; things have been kinda crazy in my world.

My site has been having issues for about a week, so that’s annoyed me to no end (and created countless tears). Plus my day job situation is taking an interesting turn – I’m on the fence of whether things will be better or worse for me.

There’s so much I want to talk about too, but I’ll have to keep it brief. I just wanted to let you know that I’m still alive.

Tell me if you’ve heard this one before. Man has huge career, man marries beautiful woman; man cheats on said woman, denies it, then basically confesses, the world wonders what the hell is wrong with man.

Well this time replace ‘man’ with ‘Tiger Woods.’ Honestly never saw this one coming, but I guess those of us on the outside rarely do.

So there have been murmurs for a few weeks now that Tiger Woods stepped out on his wife of five years – and the mother of his two children – Elin Nordegren. After Tiger’s car accident last Friday the gossip hounds really got going.

And now it looks like they were all right. Of course the golf great tried to ignore and deny the claims and rumors, but as the days pass it’s becoming clear that Tiger Woods has been up to no good.

Here’s where it gets a little confusing. Last week Tiger’s rumored mistress was said to be some bartender named Rachel Uchitel, but she denied it and blamed the story on a couple of crack whores.

Now a chick named Jaimee Grubbs has not only popped up claiming to be Tiger’s lover, but she has sold released audio tapes as proof. The recorded message is allegedly Tiger Woods asking Jaimee to remove his name from her phone, and that his wife just went through his phone so she may call Jaimee (scroll down to hear recording).

Side Note: I told my boyfriend this morning that if he ever cheated on me I would cut his balls off. He said ok. It’s nice that we agree.

Jaimee Grubbs claims she and Tiger Woods have been knockin’ boots since early 2007, and they continued to do so until this past Thanksgiving week.

All of this, of course, is still just conjecture. Except Tiger pretty much owns up to it in the statement he released on his website.

I have let my family down and I regret those transgressions with all of my heart. I have not been true to my values and the behavior my family deserves. I am not without faults and I am far short of perfect. I am dealing with my behavior and personal failings behind closed doors with my family. Those feelings should be shared by us alone.

Although I am a well-known person and have made my career as a professional athlete, I have been dismayed to realize the full extent of what tabloid scrutiny really means. For the last week, my family and I have been hounded to expose intimate details of our personal lives. The stories in particular that physical violence played any role in the car accident were utterly false and malicious. Elin has always done more to support our family and shown more grace than anyone could possibly expect.

But no matter how intense curiosity about public figures can be, there is an important and deep principle at stake which is the right to some simple, human measure of privacy. I realize there are some who don’t share my view on that. But for me, the virtue of privacy is one that must be protected in matters that are intimate and within one’s own family. Personal sins should not require press releases and problems within a family shouldn’t have to mean public confessions.

Whatever regrets I have about letting my family down have been shared with and felt by us alone. I have given this a lot of reflection and thought and I believe that there is a point at which I must stick to that principle even though it’s difficult.

I will strive to be a better person and the husband and father that my family deserves. For all of those who have supported me over the years, I offer my profound apology.


Sorry Tiger, but I don’t think “well known” is a strong enough term to describe your celebrity. As for feeling that “Personal sins should not require press releases and problems within a family shouldn’t have to mean public confessions” – I’m sorry if you feel we’ve all butted into your business, but you’re the one who chose to be a public figure and share your life and family with us. You can’t complain about it now that we’re shedding light on your dark side.

    When I first heard of Tiger’s accident the morning after Thanksgiving, without even knowing any of the details we now know, I told my folks that he had cheated on his wife. His statement on his website pretty much confirms it, without saying it in exact words.

    I don’t think he’ll be able to protect his privacy as much as he’d like. If so, his wife would not have gone through his [cell] phone to have found his cheating ways. Jaime Grubb, Rachel Uchitell and another woman (I can’t recall her name but I believe either US magazine or People magazine revealed her) who has come out of no where. Who knows how many more will surface? Tiger presented himself as a “wholesome” family man, but now we all know he is just as human as the rest of us.

    His voicemail to Ms. Grubb shows he was doing all he could to protect his secret dalliance outside of his marriage. If he was sincere about owning up, he’d have just owned up BEFORE he made that plea to Grubb or even Friday, right after he was released from the hospital.

    It may very well be that he is trying to be a better person, one that his wife and family deserves. I wish him the best of luck.

    I was surfing the boob tube and caught part of Nancy Grace, showing a diagram of Tiger’s accident. The way it looked on the diagram, it is my feeling that Tiger was zig zagging his way out of his driveway (onto bushes before running into the fire hydrant and tree) in order to get away from his wife Elin. I think she may have been after him, bashing the Escalade if not Tiger himself.

    It’s my speculation that Tiger feels truly feels bad (either at getting caught or for committing adultery) and wants to “protect” his wife. I say this due to his statement of any physical violence causing the accident to be false. Also that Elin had acted with more grace than any of us would know. He didn’t think much about how she’d be hurt by his “transgressions” but he will certainly protect her from domestic violence (though I believe she was the perpetrator.)

    As much as Tiger would like his privacy, I don’t think he’ll be out of the limelight for at least a few more days. Too many things don’t add up.

    Yeah Dan, the voicemail Jaime Grubb provided COULD be a fake but I don’t believe it is.

    IF it were a fake, how come Tiger hasn’t come out to protest it? Lord knows another woman, Rachel Uchitel, has canceled a press conference to be held by her lawyer, Gloria Alread (sp?) suggesting perhaps there was a “deal” made between Tiger and Uchitel.

    Also, the former mistress (Grubb) also has as many as 300 text messages/emails she had with Tiger, so it makes more sense to me that Tiger would leave her a voicemail message rather than it being faked.

    Who cares about CUB Woods and his small problems. Let’s talk about poverty and kids being abused and hungry. If the baby CUB wouldn’t hook up with a real woman (someone of his race) he wouldn’t be so damned spoiled and allowed to get away with the nonsense. He is lucky that his truck, the tree and fire hydrant are the only things damaged. Maybe this weak wife of his will get some gull and sue him and get what she deserves.

    Yo Angie~ Chill out will ya? If you want to talk about world poverty or hunger, go find a political site. This one’s called Hollywood Gossip. You are out of line and your suggestion of Tiger hook up with a real woman of his race shows your ignorance and bigotry.

    Yes, thank goodness he didn’t suffer serious physical injury and inanimate objects were damaged, but it is revenge you are after by suggesting Elin Nordegren should sue him to “get what she deserves.” It takes more courage and strength to try and work things out (assuming that is what they’re doing) than to just bail and make out with money. She doesn’t seem weak to me but you certainly seem angry and unsympathetic.
