Rachel Uchitel was set to go public and admit her affair with Tiger Woods until a last-minute flurry of phone calls between her rep and representatives for the golfer, RadarOnline.com is reporting exclusively.
Multiple sources told RadarOnline.com exclusively that Tiger’s people are desperate to keep Rachel from talking about Tiger and that they were willing to go a long, long way to keep her silent.
One source claimed that Rachel was negotiating a $1 million payoff by Tiger’s people to remain silent. When asked about this, Gloria Allred told RadarOnline.com, “no comment.”
Uchitel adamantly denied a sexual relationship with Tiger but was caught in a series of contradictions and lies. The National Enquirer broke the story of Uchitel’s affair, a report that triggered other women coming forward and revealing their affairs with Tiger.
