Tiger Woods is paying millions of dollars to his mistress Rachel Uchitel, RadarOnline.com has learned exclusively. It’s a blockbuster development and only RadarOnline.com is breaking the story and supplying the exclusive details.
Tiger has reached an agreement that will pay Uchitel more than one million but less than three million, sources close to the situation tell RadarOnline.com exclusively.
This will guarantee that Uchitel will not release hundred of emails and text messages that she has exchanged with Tiger during the past five months while they have had an affair. Uchitel also will not admit the affair publicly. She hired power attorney Gloria Allred after initially denying the affair, which was first reported by the National Enquirer. Allred scheduled a press conference for Thursday and Uchitel was negotiating to sell her story of her affair with Tiger to various media outlets. But Allred abruptly canceled the press conference, and sources tell RadarOnline.com that talks heated up between the rival camps.
Now RadarOnline.com has learned exclusively that Tiger will pay Uchitel a seven-figure amount that will guarantee her silence about their relationship.
RadarOnline.com’s exclusive investigation has uncovered that the negotiations were acrimonious at times but Tiger felt he needed to keep Rachel quiet and make sure the many messages between them did not become public.
While Rachel first publicly denied their affair, she quickly admitted privately and hired Allred. That’s when things heated up between the rival camps. But Rachel will walk away rich and Tiger will at least keep some of his secrets as he deals with the fallout of other women who are coming forward alleging an affair with the golfing great.
Tiger felt it was particularly important that Rachel not publicly reveal the nature of their relationship, especially after his bizarre early morning one-car crash right after Thanksgiving.
RadarOnline.com has previously reported that Rachel told pals they enjoyed sex after taking the sleeping drug Ambien. And RadarOnline.com has confirmed the Enquirer’s report that she flew to Australia last month to be with Tiger. RadarOnline.com was first to report that Tiger paid for her trip.
It all adds up to shocking and blockbuster coverup of one intense affair that the golfer engaged in during the months leading up to his car crash and his public image taking a battering as various women came forward claiming affairs with the 33-year-old legend.
The deal to pay Uchitel shows that Tiger was extremely worried about the fact that she would spill the secrets of their relationship for the past five months and make public the hundreds of text messages and emails between them.
