Turns out that Tiger Woods – the gentle, reclusive family man – may actually be a wild, party dog with a harem full of hotties.
But fighting to preserve his carefully-crafted wholesome image, projected in ads and on the golf course, the pro-golfer is coughing up a sizeable amount of cash.
According to the Daily Beast, quoting an attorney close to the couples' negotiations, Woods will pay his wife, former Bikini Model Elin Nordegen, around $80 million to stay married to him for the next seven years. For the next two years alone, according to the same report, she will get $55 million.
But even as he tries to quiet the storm last week's revelation of his extra-marital affair has produced, more reports of women he has had liaisons with during his marriage are surfacing.
Courtney Hazlett, of MSNBC’s The Scoop, reports that the list of lovers connected to the world’s No. 1 golfer could reach a dozen by week’s end. She sites several sources who say that Woods ricocheted through Las Vegas clubs, leaving a slew of smitten damsels in his wake.
“Over the course of the weekend, Las Vegas-based Jamie Jungers, New Yorker Cori Rist and Florida-based Mindy Lawton have all been identified as having extramarital connections to Woods, bringing the total of named women up to six,” reports Hazlett. She sites British tabloids, saying that Lawton “might be Woods’ first mistress” and that “the two met at a Perkins restaurant near Woods’ home where Lawton was a waitress, just two years after Woods married Elin Nordegren.”
Several well-known Vegas nightclub managers reportedly dropped a dime that “although Woods had women he had a ‘relationship’ with, there were definitely others,” according to Hazlett.
“He wasn’t one to send away someone who was interested. There was a revolving door of women with Tiger,” she quotes one club owner saying. “I can think of half a dozen off the top of my head. But if you want his business — and you do — you make sure it’s kept as discreet as possible.”
Others living near Woods’ Windermere, Fla., say that rumors of Woods’ infidelity ran rampant.
“Locally, there were always rumors of women in the community that he’d taken up with,” Hazlett reports. “You just never believed it because it seemed insane that he’d risk everything he has to sleep with women who were basically in his backyard. And with Tiger, you just didn’t want to believe it, either.”
