Tiger Woods has reportedly lost out on yet another lucrative sponsorship deal. According to a report from the BBC, AT&T has decided to end their sponsorship deal with the golf legend due to the scandal over Woods’ affairs with various mistresses and subsequent leave of absence from the golfing world.
“We are ending our sponsorship agreement with Tiger Woods and wish him well in the future,” AT&T said in a statement printed on the BBC website. AT&T isn’t the first company to decide they don’t want their brand name associated with the scandal of Tiger Woods’ affairs. Accenture also recently dropped their sponsorship deal with Woods and Swiss watchmaker TAG Heuer announced they would “downscale the use of his image” in their advertising campaigns.
Meanwhile, Woods’ wife Elin Nordegren reportedly celebrated the turning of the New Year as far away from her husband as she could get apparently. Nordegren, her twin sister Josefin and a group of friends reportedly spent their New Year’s Eve skiing near Chamonix in the French Alps.
We’re thinking Elin was probably spending some quality time thinking about what she’s going to do with the 300 million she allegedly wants from Tiger for cheating on her. Considering the mistress count seems destined to rise even higher, we think she should hold out for more. At least 50 million per mistress sounds like a good deal to us.
Tiger Woods is out there somewhere celebrating hisÂ birthday, but we doubt he’s enjoying it all that much. Woods turns 34 today and his present from the world is a new slew of rumors about where he’s been hiding out lately.
One rumor claims Tiger Woods is undergoing plastic surgery for injuries sustained to his face after being slammed in the head by wife Elin Nordegren with a 9-iron afterÂ she foundÂ racy text messages to him from alleged mistress Rachel Uchitel. Another report circulating claims the golfer has checked into rehab in Arizona for sex addiction treatment. Then there are the rumors Tiger Woods is shacked up aboard his private yacht in Palm Beach and spending his free time canoodling with Uchitel.
Considering how desperate the paparazzi are to snap even one photo of Tiger Woods, it’s actually pretty spectacular he’s managed to keep his mug out of the media this long following that whole bizarre car accident thing and ensuing affairs scandal.
Wherever Tiger Woods is and whatever it is he really is doing on his birthday, we just hope he’s not fueling any more fodder for future tabloid nastiness.
Tiger Woods and alleged mistress RachelÂ Uchitel were reportedly spotted partying together in Palm Beach, FL over the holiday weekend, leading many to speculate whether there is any hope left for his failing marriage to Elin Nordegren Woods.
Tiger Woods was reportedly shacked up aboard his private yacht in Palm Beach last week, according to Entertainment Tonight. Interestingly, his alleged mistress #1, Rachel Uchitel, also apparently had an urgent need to be in Palm Beach as well, supposedly to visit with ‘family’.
Considering both Woods andÂ Uchitel were allegedly rumored be in the same city at the same time, it is unsurprisingÂ reports began to circulate the two were hooking up on the sly. The real slap in the face to Woods’ wife Elin Nordegren, however, is theÂ tabloid gossipÂ her hubby and RachelÂ Uchitel were spotted out in public acting cozy at a ritzy party at the Everglades Club.
While the rumor is so far unconfirmed, there are several sources blabbing out there to the tabloids about the party hookup between Woods and Uchitel. Though we do have to ask, where are the photos? And why are none of the people saying they saw the two together willing to name themselves? We aren’t calling this one for sure and we find it aÂ bit strange Tiger Woods would be crass enough to even be in the same city with RachelÂ Uchitel if he really is interested in saving his marriage. If he is even in Palm Beach, which is a questionable rumor in itself.
Regardless of whether Woods really is still hooking up with one of his alleged mistresses, at this point itÂ may beÂ too late forÂ him to salvage his marriage anyway. Elin Nordegren reportedly spent her holidays in Sweden with the couple’s two children – as far away from Tiger Woods and his ‘mistresses’ as possible.
According to reports circulating Monday morning, the Tiger Woods divorce from wife Elin Nordegren Woods is “100 percent on.” Both ABC News and People are reporting a divorce between the top-ranked golfer and his gorgeous wife is imminent.
Elin Nordegren Woods has recently been spotted out and about without her wedding ring. Rumor has it Tiger Woods’ wife is planning to wait until after the holidays to file for divorce for the sake of the couple’s children. ABC.com reports a source close to Nordegren said the “divorce is 100% on” but first she “wants all the dirty laundry to be out on the table before she signs anything.”
According to the New York Post, Elin Woods may seek as much as $500 million in assets from Tiger Woods if she goes through with the divorce proceedings. She has reportedly already met with a high-profile divorce lawyer based in Los Angeles. Sorrell Trope, the attorney who allegedly met with Nordegren, has previously represented such celebrities as Nicole Kidman and Britney Spears.
Looks like it’s going to be quite the merry Christmas in the Woods household this year.
