Tiger Woods’ ex-wife, Elin Nordegren, might have a new man in her life. According to reports, she’s involved with a 35-year-old South African she met while at a college in Florida where they both are studying.
Tiger Woods has dropped into a tie with Kobe Bryant as the favorite American sports star. Woods had held the position alone since 2006, but the Los Angeles Lakers guard moved up from 4th last year to grab a share of the top spot. LeBron James dropped from 3rd to 6th in the Harris Interactive survey conducted online from June 14-21. Retired NBA star Michael Jordan fell from 2nd to 7th.
After being in seclusion since November, Tiger Woods was finally photographed in sex rehab in Hattiesburg, Mississippi. Tiger hasn’t been publicly seen since Thanksgiving, but there have been multiple bogus Tiger spottings across the globe. We confirmed that he was in sex rehab earlier this week and low and behold–the first photo of Tiger.
The photo, which was taken by the National Enquirer who broke the world exclusive story of Tiger’s five-month affair with Rachel Uchitel and more than a dozen mistresses came forward within weeks after Rachel went public.
In the pic, Tiger is sporting some serious facial hair, perhaps to avoid being recognized, but an eyewitness confirmed the man in the photograph is Tiger, saying that while he was bundled up, the golfer was recognizable in person.
Tiger is being treated for sexual addiction at the clinic in a program created by Dr. Patrick Carnes.
Now that the first photo of him is out, other photo agencies are probably going to send dozens of photographers out to Mississippi to stalk him, so stay tuned for more pics!
Russell Simmons reveals Tiger Woods donates 3 million dollars to support Wyclef Jean’s Yele foundation to create a mobile hospital for Haitian earthquake victims.
Disgraced golfer Tiger Woods is set to rescue his good name by donating $3 million to Wyclef Jean’s Yele foundation in an effort to create a mobile hospital in Haiti, according to rap mogul Russell Simmons. The Def Jam co-founder tells the New York Daily News Woods is considering the weighty donation that would help send doctors and supplies to Haiti to deal with the aftermath of a 7.3 earthquake which hit the nation on Tuesday, January 12.
The rap icon says, “Tiger Woods is working on sending a mobile hospital with 50 EMTs to go set up a triage.” Simmons has called on all celebrities to join the relief effort.
Woods is believed to be in hiding in South Africa after taking a hiatus following allegations he cheated on his wife Elin Nordegren with a string of mistresses.
Rebuilding his image reportedly becomes the athlete’s motivation in entering the rehabilitation facility in Arizona.
After being hit with rumor that he had an affair with several women while married to Elin Nordegren, Tiger Woods has reportedly entered a private, upscale rehabilitation facility in Arizona. According to X17online, a source told them that the golfer “has been there for a few days since his handlers forced him to enter the program. They feel that if he blames his cheating on addiction, the public will forgive him.”
“Tiger wants to get back on top,” the source further detailed on the reason why Woods agreed to enter the rehabilitation facility. “He agreed to put golfing on hold so he could show the world how badly he feels about what he’s done and to prove that he wants to correct the problems that led to his infidelity.”
Arizona has two high-profile rehabilitation centers, Cottonwood de Tuscon and The Meadows in Phoenix. The site reported Cottonwood’s program for sex addiction “centers on helping patients retrain the neural pathways that are activated by their sexual behavior,” while the Meadows focuses on treating alcohol and drug addiction along with compulsive behaviors such as eating, gambling, sex, love addiction/avoidance and co-dependence.
Though it is most likely that Woods joins a facility for sex addiction, there has been rumor that the athlete has problems with prescription drug abuse. Thus, X17online further suggested that he is possibly treated for multiple issues.
Tiger Woods is not the only one who blew big bucks with his image-busting cheating spree.
His losses are chump change compared with the up to $12 billion that the scandal has cost shareholders of his big-money sponsors like Nike, AT&T and Gatorade, a study revealed Monday.
“Total shareholder losses may exceed several decades’ worth of Tiger Woods’ personal endorsement income,” said study author Victor Stango, a professor at the University of California Davis.
The study compared the stock prices of nine Woods sponsors with competitors and the overall market after the scandal erupted last month.
Investors in the three sports-related companies – video gamemaker Electronic Arts, Gatorade and Nike – fared the worst, experiencing a 4.3% drop in stock value.
On the other hand, Accenture, a global management consulting firm, experienced no measurable ill effects from Woods’ fall from grace.
First Tiger takes a break from golfing, which will cost the tv networks and the PGA alot of money. He is the most famous and biggest golfer of all time, if not athlete. The first billion dollar athlete likes the ladies. So be it. Many great men in history have loved the ladies but they did right in their public life for many people. He probably got married too young. How many of us have friends that have tons of women, or on the opposite, women that have a few men on the vine? He’s famous so the media goes nuts. The fact that they are all white women is a definate undercurrent for the fox news/rush limbaugh racists types. Tiger Woods will be moving to France to get away from the media frenzy in the United States. It is reported that the avid golfer is currently looking at multi-million dollar estates in France with the hope of getting more privacy.
“Members of team Tigers have reached out to the same ultra-exclusive real estate agent that helped Brad [Pitt] and Angelina [Jolie] find their stunning property in the South of France,” an insider tells the site. Meanwhile, Michael Wildes, the immigration attorney and managing partner at prominent NYC-based immigration law firm Wildes & Weinberg, claims Woods’ not-yet-confirmed move to France as understandable, taking into account the country has “much stricter privacy laws that afford the Brangelinas of the world a tinted aquarium, rather than the transparent fishbowl that is the U.S. media, in which to live and breathe in virtual freedom and privacy.”
Echoing Michael’s explanation, a celebrity publicist says, “that’s why private stars like reclusive Johnny Depp chooses France to raise his family and why Angelina decided it was the only place to give birth to the world’s most famous twins.”
Elin Nordegren, the wife of Tiger Woods, has ceased wearing her gold band and diamond engagement ring. While she is known as a celebrity wife or model in most circles, Nordegren will likely become even more famous under a new title — petitioner — as she is reportedly planning to divorce Woods for his “transgressions” after the Christmas holiday.
If that wasn’t enough, Woods has even more mounting problems on the homestead, as Florida Department of Children and Families, along with deputies from the Orange County Sheriff’s Department, visited the golfer’s home Friday.
“Our deputies met with members of the Department of Children and Families,” Capt. Angelo Nieves of the Orange County Sheriff’s Department said. “But all details are being kept secret.”
