One of Tiger Woods‘ many mistresses, Jaimee Grubbs, said she still feels misunderstood and was bullied by the media.
“I think I’m very misunderstood to a lot of people,” Grubbs said during an exclusive video interview obtained by RadarOnline.com.
“I tried to make people understand but I only go so far before people believe what they want to believe.”
As RadarOnline.com previously reported, Woods sent numerous sexual text messages to Grubbs during their affair.
“I will wear you out…when was the last time you got (bleeped)?” one message read. Another one from Woods read, “Send me something very naughty…Go to the bathroom and take (a picture).”
“Hopefully people will forget about it and think of it as an event that was unfortunate for a lot of people,” Grubbs said of her extra-marital affair with the famed golfer.
“I do think it should be over with and I’m trying to push forward and move on.”
After the cheating scandal broke, Grubbs said she all the negativity from the media was hard to take.
“Most of my bullying was through society and media. My family and friends supported me which was great because that just gave me hope that there are people that are true to me,” Grubbs said.
“As far as him and I are concerned, everything has been put behind me. Anywhere I go I do get faced with it now and then but it has slowed down.”
Woods made headlines on the Thanksgiving weekend of 2009, not for his strokes on the golf course, but for his antics off the course – when he was ousted for cheating on his then-wife, Elin Nordegren, with upwards of 15 women.
People still ask to take a photo with Grubbs to which she says: “Hopefully they want to take a picture with me because I inspired them to stay strong and true to yourself, but I just take it as that instead of offended or whatever.
“Obviously I try to take everything positive but obviously there are some negatives that you can’t just put aside. For the most part I’ve turned most of it into a growing opportunity and something positive.”
The San Diego native said she’s moved on with her life and is happy with her current boyfriend.
“I am dating…my boyfriend is here to support me,” Grubbs said.
“I did something very special for Valentines. We took a hot air balloon up in the world, basically up in the sky to get away from everything and just enjoy the moment with us two together.”
