Tiger Woods alleged mistress fleed from her Manhattan apartment today and boarded a plane to LAX. TMZ reports that Tiger Woods alleged mistress has lawyered up with one of the nation’s best celebrity attorneys – Gloria Allred. Tiger Woods alleged mistress refused to speak with media as she got into a car and went to the airport. Once at the airport, Rachel Uchitel still kept her silence and didn’t even answer questions posed as to why she was heading to LAX.
So why would Rachel Uchitel, New York socialite and alleged Tiger Woods mistress, be heading to LAX? Why would she be seeking out the help of celebrity attorney Gloria Allred? You see, the National Enquirer recently broke a story that sparked rumors that Tiger Woods and Rachel Uchitel were having an affair. The alleged affair died down a little bit, and then revved up when Tiger Woods was involved in an early-morning single-car accident while trying to leave his exclusive Florida residence.
TMZ guesses that Rachel Uchitel is seeking the aid of an attorney for a possible defamation suit against the National Enquirer. The Enquirer broke the story of the alleged affair, and both Rachel Uchitel and Tiger Woods deny the report.
Woods issued a statement on his Web site that said that “the many false, unfounded and malicious rumors that are currently circulating about my family and me are irresponsible” meaning that TMZ’s account of the car accident isn’t accurate according to the pro golfer. In addition, Tiger Woods debunks rumors that Elin Woods broke out the windows of the SUV in anger, stating that his wife acted “courageously.”
Who exactly is Rachel Uchitel? Uchitel was first seen in media reports during the 9/11 attacks. Her then fiancee was in one of the buildings and died during the attacks. She married a Wall Street trader, divorced, and then went out to Las Vegas where she began work as a VIP hostess. Rachel Uchitel, Tiger Woods’ alleged mistress then began working at New York night clubs. She has been romantically linked to a baseball player, TV stars, and musicians. However her links are only alleged links and she has been said to never “kiss and tell.”
Everyone hopes that Tiger Woods is okay. Although the media is anxiously awaiting more information, it is unlikely it will come any time soon. Tiger Woods didn’t speak to police today as expected, although his lawyer did provide authorities with information required by Florida law.
