Jamie Jungers is spilling more never-before-heard details about her alleged 18-month affair with Tiger Woods.
In an exclusive interview with RadarOnline.com, Jungers, 26, says that during her tryst with the golfer, she often partied with Tiger and his “billionaire boys club” at Mansion at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas — which, among other A-list athletes, included top NBA player Charles Barkley.
“I gambled with him and Charles Barkley one night for hours,” Jamie told RadarOnline.com exclusively. “He played blackjack and I sat there with him [Tiger] while he played. He played $25,000 a hand or more and Charles played roulette behind us… he was playing several thousand himself.”
Barkley, a reported notorious gambler, apparently didn’t notice the serious flirtation happening between Woods and Jungers, who says Tiger managed to keep his attraction for her discreet in front of his celeb pals.
“He would occasionally put his hand on my leg but it was underneath the table,” she told RadarOnline.com. There was nobody around except the blackjack dealer, the roulette dealer and a cocktail waitress who would come in the room. There was nobody in that room except for myself, Tiger and Charles Barkley.”
It was at Mansion that Jungers says she saw a different side of Tiger. “He was drinking, smoking cigars, he was partying,” she said. “The boys and I would talk. Tiger and Charles would talk s*** to each other, joking. I met him [Charles] there. They talked and laughed. They are good friends.”
Whether Barkley knew about Woods’ many extramarital affairs, he didn’t let it sour their friendship. Barkley was one of the first people to offer advice to the golfer following his Thanksgiving car crash.
“I think he is making it worse,” Barkley told a radio station. “First of all, if, if, if that happened, I think all the secrecy, his statement apologizing-I am not perfect and stuff like that. I think they are making it worse. I mean I would love for him to come out and say: ‘Hey we had a disagreement. I am sorry for the uproar. Please give me my privacy.’ [But by] avoiding the cops and things I think people are going to say at this point: ‘Hey, we need to know the damn truth now.’”
Now, as the world awaits Tiger’s next move, his friends, including Barkley, are reportedly concerned about his state of mind. Woods has apparently changed his cell phone number and isn’t taking calls-not even from his famous friends.
In an interview with Spike Lee set to air on the show With All Due Respect on Sunday, Barkley said he’s concerned about his pal.
“I think when you have these fires in your life, as I call them, you need to talk to somebody else who is famous who has been through things in their life,” Barkley said. “I don’t think you can talk about it to your family and friends because your family and friends, they’re not famous.”
“He’s insulated,” adds Spike Lee. “If Charles Barkley and Michael Jordan can’t get to him, and those are his boys, then other people are making bad moves.”
