In an explosive new interview, the woman who first broke the news of Tiger Woods’ affair with Rachel Uchitel exclusively spoke to RadarOnline.com and revealed that the golfing great and his most recent mistress said they were in love with each other.
Ashley Samson said that she was told by Rachel about Rachel and Tiger’s affair. Samson told RadarOnline.com that Rachel told her “they were in love; she was in love with him [Tiger] and he was in love with her and they were going to be together forever.”
“She told me I’m having an affair with Tiger Woods and we’re in love,” Ashley revealed. “I heard them on the phone telling each other that I miss you so much and love you so much.”
Rachel at first denied having an affair with Tiger, but then hired power attorney Gloria Allred who, sources tell RadarOnline.com, negotiated a settlement with Tiger. Even while Rachel lied publicly denying the affair, Ashley knew the truth.
Ashley told RadarOnline.com: “She read multiple text messages to me,” from Rachel to Tiger. “One in particular saying that Tiger was saying that he wanted to be with her forever. It was just her and him together forever.”
Ashley told RadarOnline.com about her trip with Rachel where she learned about the affair. “She wasn’t very discreet about it at all,” Ashley remembered. “She was bragging about it and she gave us very graphic details about it.”
The National Enquirer broke the story of Tiger’s cheating scandal, and followed Rachel to Australia where she was staying in the same hotel with Tiger while he played in a golf tournament. “When she got back from Australia she notified us that the story had been leaked to the tabloids and Tiger had to send her home,” Ashley revealed. “He was very upset with her,” she said about Tiger.
That’s when Rachel began denying the affair publicly and trashing Ashley, who went on-the-record with the Enquirer about the affair.
“She has made my life hell,” Ashley said about Uchitel. “I have been attacked by fans of Tiger Woods and friends of mine even are basically upset because she made me out to look like the bad guy when in fact the truth is he’s the one that was cheating on his wife.”
Rachel at one point said that she barely knew Ashley, but Ashley refutes this claim. “There are clearly photographs of us,” Ashley said, and RadarOnline.com has the photo of the two women together partying in Spain, the trip where Ashley learned about the Tiger Woods’ affair.
And as RadarOnline.com first reported, Team Tiger tried to buy up the story and offered Ashley cash to stay silent and then later, she says, to take back her story. “I’ve been offered lots of money to deny my story, but I chose not to take the money because the truth is the truth.”
And the drama is probably not over yet. Ashley told RadarOnline.com exclusively that she is furious with Rachel and may take their dispute to court. “I’m so mad I’m thinking of suing her for trashing my name,” Ashley said
