Woods’ Alleged Mistress Comes ForwardBy WENN
Thursday, December 3, 2009
Married golf superstar TIGER WOODS allegedly conducted a 31-month affair with 24-year-old Las Vegas cocktail waitress JAMIE GRUBBS.
Grubbs - a former contestant on U.S reality TV show Tool Academy - has come forward with her claims after Woods’ high profile car crash on Friday (27Nov09).
Woods was left injured and reportedly unconscious after reversing his SUV into a water hydrant outside his Florida home and then driving into a neighbour’s tree.
Reports suggest the star and his wife Erin had been fighting prior to the accident over allegations Woods had been having an affair with club manager Rachel Uchitel.
Grubbs claims she had no knowledge of the world number one’s alleged relationship with Uchitel, but she has lifted the lid on her own affair with Woods, which she claims began when they met in a Sin City club in April 2007.
She alleges she met the star eight times over the course of their relationship, enjoying 20 sexual encounters - the final meeting taking place in San Diego, California in October (09).
Grubbs tells Us Weekly magazine, “Every three months he’d meet me in San Diego. We liked enjoying each other’s company.
“I loved how we got along, but I knew in the back of my mind, there could never be just us. There would always be the wife, or somebody else.”
As evidence of their affair, Grubbs has released a voicemail message she claims Woods left on her phone shortly before his crash, asking her to erase her name from her recorded message - because he feared his wife would confront her.
According to TMZ.com, Erin later called Grubbs and snapped at her, saying, “You know who this is because you’re f**king my husband.”
Uchitel has continued to deny claims she was involved with Woods, and Grubbs is convinced the star was so driven, he didn’t have time to juggle a family, career and two mistresses: “He always told me he didn’t have time for other girls and I believed it.
“Sometimes we’d talk about his stressful life. He told me his life is overwhelming, but he needed the endorsements and busy schedule because he wasn’t as financially stable as he wanted to be. I thought, ‘f**k him’ I’m just an average person.”
Woods, who married former nanny Erin in 2004, issued a statement on Wednesday (02Dec09), refusing to address the cheating rumours, but apologising to his family for “letting them down”.
