Tiger Woods told his mistress that he married Elin Nordegren only to boost his public image, RadarOnline.com has learned exclusively.
The admission came during the early days of his marriage and was made to Theresa Rogers, the Cougar who has been with Tiger both before and after his marriage.
And the source told RadarOnline.com that the relationship between Rogers and Tiger was very hot at the time he married Elin.
“I was with Theresa in Florida and when we pulled up to the house where we were going Tiger Woods got out,” the source told RadarOnline.com. “I walked around the car and looked up and Tiger was kissing Theresa on the lips. Long and passionate kisses.”
Theresa bragged about her relationship with Tiger for years, the source said. And she said that Tiger told her getting married was for publicity and his image.
Tiger, 33, carried on an affair that lasted at least five years with Theresa, 49. She is now represented by Gloria Allred and sources tell RadarOnline.com exclusively that Allred is busy negotiating a settlement for Rogers and also represents other Tiger women.
Meanwhile, Tiger’s wife Elin has removed her wedding rings and will file for divorce, RadarOnline.com is reporting. Multiple sources say she simply cannot forgive Tiger for the betrayal that has seen the number of mistresses revealed publicly reach 14.
Tiger’s public image as a hard-working golfing legend and happily married father of two have helped him build a lucrative empire powered by big-money endorsement deals.
