The Tiger Woods’ implosion continues unabated, as the world’s greatest golfer now must face the fallout from the preferential treatment he received from the Florida Highway Patrol in the wake of his bizarre Thanksgiving night car crash.
It’s the latest PR disaster in what could very well end up as one of the greatest celebrity implosions of all-time.
Woods’ public image was already taking a serious beating (no pun intended) for his evasiveness in answering authorities’ questions regarding the accident – as well as for the growing list of women who are accusing him of extramarital naughtiness.
One of the women, Los Angeles cocktail waitress Jamie Grubbs (pictured here), claims to have emails and text messages documenting her affair with Woods.
“I will wear you out,” Woods allegedly wrote to Grubbs in one steamy text message.
In another he asks her to “send (him) something very naughty,” prior to instructing her to go to the bathroom and take a picture.
Woods also is alleged to have told Grubbs to “keep quiet” in the wake of a National Enquirer story alleging that the golfer was having an affair with Rachel Uchitel, a New York club promoter.
“They’ve hooked up a bunch of times,” a source told the magazine.
The Enquirer story regarding the alleged affair between Woods and Uchitel broke just as America was heading into its Thanksgiving vacation, which the golfer had no doubt hoped to spend quietly in an affluent Orlando suburb with his family.
Now, it appears pretty obvious that the exposure from Woods’ alleged extramarital dalliance(s) served as the impetus for a sensational celebrity domestic dispute – unless of course you believe the cover story that Woods’ wife, Elin Nordegren, was really attempting to “rescue” him from a low-speed crash by smashing in the back window of his 2009 Cadillac Escalade.
Woods three times refused to answer questions about the incident, eventually having his lawyer provide statements to investigators.
Amazingly, there will be no additional investigation into either the crash or the alleged fight that preceded it.
“Despite the celebrity status of Mr Woods, the Florida Highway Patrol has completed its investigation in the same professional manner it strives to complete every traffic investigation,” a spokeswoman for the department said Tuesday.
Yeah … right.
