Tiger — You’ve got a lot of explaining to do! And fast!
Elin, you might want to sit down — this new alleged mistress claims she has 300 sexy texts from Woods, photos, and a voicemail recording, that prove that she’s telling the truth. Jaimee, who is described as an LA cocktail waitress, says the affair with Woods, 33, began in April 2007. It continued through 20 sexual encounters … and it’s not clear whether it’s actually even ended!
Grubbs is no shrinking violet — she appeared earlier this year on the VH1 reality show Tool Academy which features “bad boys” sent to “relationship boot camp.” Jaimee’s boyfriend, Shawn “Loud Mouth Tool” Southern, was one of the contestants who needed to be reformed. Hmm! Seems Jaimee has a thing for bad boys!
Quite the ironic situation for Woods who hinted to a friend, according to TMZ, that he fought with his wife over an “alleged” affair with VIP club hostess Rachel Uchitel. Uchitel has since vehemently denied that affair and has spoken about how devastated she feels to be labelled a “homewrecker.”
Grubbs, clearly, has no such reservations. If her timeline of the alleged affair is correct, she became involved with Woods while his wife, Elin Nordegren, 29, was pregnant with the couple’s daughter, Sam Alexis, now two. The affair would have continued through Elin’s second pregnancy with Charlie Axel, now four months old.
As proof to the world that she’s telling the truth, Jaimee has reportedly provided a Nov. 24 voicemail that Woods supposedly left her in which he suggests he’s having an affair. The voicemail will be available for all to hear tomorrow, Wed. AM on UsMagazine.com.
What does this say about Tiger, if he did indeed have a sexy, long-term affair with Grubbs? “It’s much more serious than a one-night slip up. And it’s very careless and reckless of Tyler to send her text messages or have photos taken with her,” says psychologist Dr. Carol Lieberman, author of Bad Boys: Why We Love Them, How to Live With Them and When to Leave Them.
And another question: Why would he get involved with another woman when he’s supposedly happily married to a beautiful wife with two young kids? “It could have been his way of coping after his dad died, about a year before, when he supposedly started this relationship,” says Dr. Lieberman. “Or he’s simply a narcissist, who feels entitled to two women.”
As for Elin — is there any hope of saving her marriage if these claims turn out to be true? “If she’s smart, the marriage is over,” believes Dr. Carole, unless Tiger really is committed to ending the alleged affair and going to extensive marital therapy for at least six months. “He needs to understand why he’s doing this!”
