Tiger Woods Affair Rumor: cheating on Wife with Rachel Uchitel may have caused accident after he and wifey had a fight and he was trying to get out the house in a hurry(pics)
When Tiger Woods and Lindsey Vonn split over a week ago, the Olympic skiier posted on Facebook the explanation that 'both lead incredibly hectic lives that force us to spend a majority of our time apart.'
Daily Mail Online can now exclusively reveal that during one of those 'times apart' Tiger cheated on Lindsey - with a 'faceless, nameless woman', a friend reveals.
'He had a relapse in the sex department,' a close friend reveals to Daily Mail Online. 'Lindsey found out about women again. Always while he's on the road. Just like when he was with Elin.'
It was after Tiger was eliminated from the San Diego-based Farmers Insurance Open in February, somewhere near his old stomping grounds in Southern California,that Tiger had a one night stand, the friend divulged.

'He withdrew from Farmers. You have to understand, while it's not right, it's not really wrong either. Tiger isn't married. He doesn't really drink or do drugs. So what else does he have when he can't afford to lose again? He is allowed to find some relief.
'Most men would drink over such losses.Tiger has sex over it. Usually with local hookers whom he pays exorbitant amounts to, probably so they will want repeat business and won't tell.'
Michelle Braun, a former Hollywood madame revealed that between 2006 and 2007 Tiger paid upwards of $40,000 for six 'pay-for-sex dates.'
But this time he was spotted with the woman.
'When Tiger realized he was seen, he became concerned and eventually he decided to confess to Lindsey. Something he didn't do with Elin. He came clean and I give him credit for that.
'Yes, Tiger cheated again. But it wasn't with anyone special. He really wanted Lindsey to be the one. But he blew it again. He can't help himself. He's got an addiction. He relapsed,' says the friend.
'Knowing Tiger, he doesn't even see it as cheating because there's no romance or feeling there. It's just a stress reliever, like a high-ball or two after a bad day.'
The friend tells Daily Mail Online that despite pleas from peers and relatives to keep going to his self-mandated therapy sessions, Tiger stopped going completely -- leading to the alleged 'one-time slip'.
Tiger appeared on appeared Good Morning America and opened up about his marriage scandal, revealing he was trying to 'make amends' for his actions. He and Elin divorced in 2010

But that 'one-time slip' was enough to send Vonn, 30, packing.
In fact, she made sure to announce the mutual split right in time to be physically out of the country. She's tour in New Zealand, Chile and Europe before she returning to Vail, Colorado for training in few months.
Vonn, who won her 63rd World Cup race in January is collecting $22 million in endorsement deals and is gearing up to hit the Olympic slopes and promoting her new Lindsey Vonn Foundation to empower young girls.
'Lindsey found out about the cheating the easy way, if there is an easy way. She didn't check his texts. Tiger confessed. He took the opposite strategy he did with Elin and instead of hiding it, he admitted it before getting caught.
'He doesn't even see it as cheating. It's just stress relief. It's hard for him to see that he's bad. Maybe he's not. He's not married to Lindsey. But he also won't get her back. She's another strong woman like Elin who respects herself too much.
'Why would she think her Tiger would change its stripes? She knew what she was in for. She reads the papers. We all read about the blonde table full of women in New York.'
Media reports claimed Tiger was seen going into a Manhattan restaurant last December, only to flirt and eventually leave the with women.

'Lindsey should have known then that Tiger was getting ready to slip, if he'd hadn't already. But then came the Farmers loss,' reveals the friend.
Cheating wasn't Lindsey's only problem with Tiger.
'She always flew in to be by his side, but he rarely flew to be by her side. A relationship goes both ways. Not just Tiger's way.
'She started to see how Tiger's really obsessed with himself, his game, making money, controlling everything around him. The girlfriend takes a back seat. Only golf is front and center.'
'This really started to bother her. She was turning into a golf wife, and she's not. She's an Olympian. Tiger loves her. I'm sure he wished she forgave him when they went to therapy.'
Sources say that a few weeks ago, a fellow golf wife finally succeeded in convincing Lindsey to go with Tiger to therapy, at least once, despite her desire to cut and run. Lindsey reconsidered and ended up taking in one session with Tiger.
The friend reveals Lindsey refused go at first. She said it was his problem. But it was also affecting his game so he begged her.
'She worried for him. He was hitting bottom maybe, and she wanted to support him. It's how he kept Elin for those extra months. And he did it to Lindsey.'
Happy girl: Lindsey Vonn instagram 'On Saturday night I went to the #Tomorrowland premier at Disneyland, which meant that at 30 years old I finally got to go to Disney!!!!!! I was SO excited and I rode the magic mountain ride twice! It felt good to be a kid again :) #myfirsttime #imstillakid #dreamcometrue (I'll post more pics on Facebook :) '
'Well she refused to go the first time. And then Tiger arranged for a second time and she went. That's when he confessed, but it backfired.
'She didn't walk out of the session but she walked out on him.'
'I mean, these things happen. It's like falling in love with a rock star or an NBA player. It's going to happen. Mistakes are going to be made.
'But Lindsey is not like Elin, the long-suffering wife who will turn a blind eye. She knew that one relapse could lead to two and three and then he's off to the races.'
The source explained that Tiger's transgressions and self obsessions were two problems Lindsey had with Tiger. There was a third.
'She thought he was a bit of a bore. She's right. He's sometimes very boring to be around. He's got nothing going on in his head sometimes, besides himself. The joke is he doesn't even have to be that good in bed because women see him like a rock star. Maybe he's even boring in bed because women throw themselves at him.'
The first time Tiger was busted for cheating with hookers, porn stars, strippers and mistresses was Black Friday, the day after Thanksgiving, 2009. Elin, then 29, and mother of daughter Sam, then 2, and then 11-month-old son Charlie Axel, discovered explicit texts from not one, but several women.
Tiger, a chronic insomniac, had just taken an Ambien and was starting to doze when Elin took his cell phone and started texting mistress Rachel Uchitel, pretending to be her husband.
Elin, a usually very controlled former Swedish model and nanny, chased Tiger out of the house with a golf club. He attempted to flee in his 2009 Escalade but crashed into a tree before he could get down the street.
Elin smashed both windows with Tiger's golf club and ended up hitting him, cracking a couple of his front teeth.
The $15,000 woman? Michelle Braun claimed that Tiger Woods paid that amount for a date with Loredana Jolie, pictured above, one night in Manhattan.
When Elin saw racy texts to Tiger's mistress Rachel Uchitel from her husband, she flipped out
That was just the beginning. A flurry of women came forth - 120 in all - with claims of affairs and kinky, expensive sex with the golf star. Elin, now 35, divorced Tiger in 2010, after six years of marriage. Her prenup gave her an estimated $200 million.
Tiger, who was ranked No. 1 in the world at the time, collecting an additional $110 million a year in endorsements, disappeared for the next 54 days, only to be discovered behind the prison-like walls of the Gentle Path Sex Addiction Center at Pine Grove Behavioral Health and Addiction Services in Hattiesburg, Miss.
Michelle Braun, 39, a former Hollywood madame who supplied Tiger with call girls six times between 2006 and 2007, told the New York Post that Tiger paid upwards of $40,000 for the six 'pay-for-sex dates.'
She claimed Tiger paid $15,000 for a date with stunner Loredana Jolie for one night in Manhattan.
'He liked girl-on-girl. He had sex with them together,' Braun said.
During that fateful holiday season, Tiger took to his own website to confirm affairs, that he previously called 'transgressions'. He admitted he was 'profoundly sorry' for the pain he'd caused Elin.
'I am deeply aware of the disappointment and hurt that my infidelity has caused to so many people, most of all my wife and children,' he wrote.
All told, Tiger has admitted to having more than 120 affairs, prior to meeting Vonn. He also lost $23 million in endorsements in 2010, due to his extramarital flings, including losing Gillette, General Motors, Gatorade and AT&T.
To make matters worse, Tiger suffered another loss on Saturday. The former No. 1 player in the world now ranks No. 125 as he was eliminated in Round 4 of The Players Championship at TPC Sawgrass in Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida.
Golfer Tiger Woods is allegedly cheating on his wife, Swedish model Elin Nordegren, with Rachel Uchitel (photos below), who was also rumored to be having a secret affair with another married man, actor David Boreanaz,
At this time, it is a rumor -- unconfirmed -- and suspect at that, but word of a Tiger Woods affair is spreading quickly on the Web this morning.
One of the primary sites fueling the speculation is Media Take Out, which calls it an "explosive rumor," though carefully notes "allegedly cheating" in the headline.
Media Take Out writes, "MediaTakeOut.com just got its hands on this week's National Enquirer and it is EXPLOSIVE!!! According to them, Tiger Woods is CHEATING with the below woman, named Rachel Uchitel."
The rumor has since found its way to various blogs, Web sites and tweets such as this one, but again it is completely unconfirmed and highly suspect.
NEWS UPDATE: Tiger Woods' wife used golf club to free him from SUV accident
The wife of the world's No.1 golfer Tiger Woods used one of his tools -- a golf club -- to smash open a window of his crashed SUV and then pulled him out of the damaged vehicle after an early-morning accident Friday outside their Isleworth mansion.
By the time a Windermere police officer arrived about 2:25 a.m., Elin Nordegren Woods had dragged her husband out of his 2009 Cadillac Escalade. He was lying on the ground, dazed and bleeding from his lips and with blood in his mouth, Windermere Mayor Gary Bruhn said.
The crash knocked Tiger Woods, 33, unconscious for about six minutes, according to a call report compiled by the Orange County Sheriff's Office and obtained by the Orlando Sentinel. Bruhn said the golfer faded in and out of consciousness.
Windermere police Chief Daniel Saylor said that officers found Woods lying in the street with his wife hovering over him. "She was frantic, upset," Saylor said in a briefing Friday night. She told officers she was in the house when she heard the accident and "came out and broke the back window with a golf club," he said, adding that the front-door windows were not broken and that "the door was probably locked."
"She supposedly got him out and laid him on the ground," he said. "He was in and out of consciousness when my guys got there."
Woods was conscious enough to speak, he said.
"He was mumbling but didn't say anything coherent," Saylor said.
Windermere officers administered first aid until medical personnel arrived. After treatment at the scene, Woods was transported to Health Central Hospital in Ocoee in "serious" condition, Florida Highway Patrol Sgt. Kim Montes said. On his Web site, Woods said he was treated and released at Health Central.
Saylor said his responding officers did not hear anything about an alleged argument between Woods and his wife.
"Right now we believe this is a traffic crash. We don't believe it is domestic issue," patrol spokesman Sgt. Kim Montes said.
Woods' Escalade received $5,000 to $8,000 worth of damage to the front bumper and grille, according to FHP. Its air bags did not deploy, which suggests the vehicle was traveling less than 33 mph.
Troopers from the FHP, which is investigating the crash, visited Woods' $2.4 million mansion Friday evening, Montes said. Elin Nordegren Woods told troopers her husband was sleeping and asked that they return this morning.
Neither Woods nor his wife could be reached for comment. A woman who answered the door at the home would not answer questions.
A spokesman for Tiger Woods said he was released in "good" condition Friday. Troopers do not think alcohol was a factor in the crash. They do not know whether he was wearing a seat belt.
Woods was pulling out of his driveway and onto the 6300 block of Deacon Circle when his SUV smashed into a fire hydrant at the edge of his next-door neighbor's property and scuffed a tree, Montes said.
Though the accident did not cause major property damage, "he suffered serious injuries," Montes said. The investigation is ongoing, and charges may be pending.
FHP did not release information about the accident until 12 hours after it happened. Montes said that is not unusual because the accident was classified as minor. Troopers and other officials did not say where Tiger Woods was going when the crash took place.
At Isleworth Golf & Country Club, people who know the champion golfer wondered whether he had been en route to a workout.
"There's some speculation [around the club] that since he doesn't always sleep well, he might have been going to work out," said PGA Tour golfer Lee Janzen, an Isleworth resident.
"Sometimes he gets up really early to work out in the clubhouse. It's hard to tell at this point. He's not the type to go out late and be irresponsible or anything like that," Janzen said.
Isleworth is one of Orlando's most exclusive communities. NBA stars Shaquille O'Neal and Grant Hill have homes there, as do pro golfers Charles Howell III, Mark O'Meara, Stuart Appleby and LPGA star Paula Creamer.
Woods is scheduled to host and play in the Chevron World Challenge on Thursday in Thousand Oaks, Calif.
By Friday afternoon, few signs remained of the crash. A security guard stood outside Woods' home. A street barricade sat on Woods' front lawn. It was atop a newly dug hole, presumably where the fire hydrant previously sat.
About 10 feet away, a footlong tire mark was visible in the neighbor's yard near an oak with freshly damaged bark. That tree trunk had a few scuff marks but was largely undamaged.
Woods rose to fame after becoming the youngest player, at 21, to win the U.S. Masters at Augusta, just one year after turning pro.
With 71 wins, Woods is third in all-time PGA Tour victories and the only golfer to win four consecutive major championships: the U.S. Open, British Open, PGA Championship and the Masters in 2001.
Wood's last major championship win came in the 2008 U.S. Open when he overcame an injured left knee.
Woods finished first on the PGA Tour six times in 2009. He has taken home more than $100 million in career earnings on the tour. Combined with his endorsement deals, that puts him on track to eclipse $1 billion in earnings for his career. This month, he reportedly was paid $3 million just to play in the Australian Open, which he won.
Woods is a California native and attended Stanford University but has made the Orlando area home for him, Elin, daughter Sam Alexis, 2, and son Charlie Axel, 9 months
ANOTHER UPDATE: TIGER WOODS GETS A BECKY BEATING . . . HIS WIFE REPORTEDLY BEATS HIS AZZ WHEN SHE HEARS REPORTS OF HIM CHEATING!!! (PLUS SEXY PICS OF HIS ALLEGED JUMP OFF INSIDE)
After it was reported that Tiger Woods was injured in a car accident early Friday morning, many questions began to surface: Where was he going at 2:25 a.m. Friday? Why was there no word from Woods' representatives for nearly 13 hours after the accident? Was he drinking? Why has he not spoken to the police more than 24 hours after the incident?
Reports are surfacing now that Woods and his wife Elin Nordegren were arguing just prior to the accident about an alleged affair he was having with event planner Rachel Uchitel.
According to TMZ.com , Nordegren confronted Woods about the rumored affair just before Woods got into an accident outside of his home early Friday morning. TMZ says the facial injuries Woods suffered were the result of his wife attacking him, not from the accident.
So who is Rachel Uchitel?
According to Blackbookmag.com , the 34-year-old Uchitel is described as a "Hamptons diva" who is the director of VIP services at Pink Elephant in Southampton, N.Y. Pink Elephant is an expensive, exclusive club known for its Hollywood patrons, celebrity sightings and lounge couches.
Uchitel has been rumored to be in affairs with several high-profile married men, including David Boreanaz (star of the TV show Bones).
In her Blackbookmag.com profile, Uchitel claims she doesn't "kiss and tell" about the men she's been linked with, but Hollywood Gossip claims she openly admitted to an affair with Woods .
Uchitel is vehemently denying having an affair with Woods. "God forbid Tiger got into a car wreck because of this false report of him having an affair," she told the New York Post .
"We have never had an affair, talked on the phone or sent any type of text, sexy or not," she added. "I am really upset about it because I am being portrayed as a homewrecker when it simply isn't true."
Uchitel's fiancee was killed in the 9/11 World Trade Center terrorist attacks. Her grandparents owned and operated the notorious El Morocco nightclub, popular in the 1950s and frequented by the likes of President John F. Kennedy and Cary Grant.
November 28, 2009. People are learning MORE AND MORE about this Tiger Woods incident by the minute. As we told you on Wednesday, this weeks issue of The National Enquirer is claiming that he and the below woman were having some kinda relationship.
And then we reported to you yesterday that Tiger got into a CAR CRASH at 2:30 AM Thanksgiving night ....
Well now TMZ is claiming that his facial injuries aren't a result of the car crash - but a result of his wife TWO PIECING him!!! That's right, according to them, Tiger's wife and him were fighting about him having a jump off and then she ATTACKED him.
They go on to say that Tiger ran away from her (and the azz whooping he was getting) - and fled to his car to ESCAPE. And further that as he was trying to get away in his SUV, that wifey chased after him with a golf club and BUSTED OUT HIS WINDOWS!!!
Then, they say that Tiger CRASHED his car because he was distracted by her busting out his windows.
Now look here . . . this TMZ story seems SO EXTRA that it's hard for us to believe. But if what they're saying is true, Tiger's wife could be arrested for ASSAULT - and possibly even ATTEMPTED MURDER for causing the crash!!!
