Rachel Uchitel Snags At Least $1 Million in Settlement with Tiger Woods
Rachel Uchitel, the woman the National Enquirer first exposed as Tiger Woods lover before all the others began coming out of the woodwork, is being paid millions of dollars to keep quiet about the intimate details of their affair. According to RadarOnline.com, Tiger has reached an agreement that will pay Uchitel more than one million but less than three million.
In exchange, Uchitel will not release hundreds of damaging emails and text messages that she has exchanged with Woods over the course of the past five months of their affair. She will also not admit to the affair publicly.
After initially denying the affair, Uchitel hired a powerful attorney, none other than Gloria Allred. On Thursday Allred had scheduled a press conference. Meanwhile Uchitel was negotiating with various media outlets to sell her story of her affair with the golfing great. However, Allred canceled the press conference and talks supposedly heated up between the two sides.
Tiger will be paying out a seven-figure amount because he felt the need to keep his mistress quiet. Allred is said to have helped to both spur and secure the massive hush money settlement.
It works out for both parties involved - Tiger gets to keep his secrets (unless one of his other many mistresses reveals them) and Rachel walks away a rich woman.
