Rachel Uchitel has lastly revealed what took place on the night that stunned the sporting world in the second and last part of HBO’s Tiger docuseries. In the Jan. 17 episode, Tiger Woods’45- year-old previous girlfriend described what occurred on Thanksgiving night 2009 when the golf player’s then other half, Elin Nordegren, found that the tabloid rumor about their affair held true.
Rachel admitted that, simply days previously, she and her lover “did everything to attempt and stop” a National Enquirer story exposing their secret love. One of the tabloid’s reporters had actually identified her going to go to Tiger’s room in a Melbourne hotel during the Australian Masters and– despite the couple’s best efforts– the publication insisted on releasing the short article.
At the time the secretly philandering golfer had a golden kid image. The father-of-two conspired with his girlfriend to convince Elin that there was no reality to the story. He even put the two women on the phone with each other, according to the documentary.
” We had an extensive, 30- minute conversation, Elin and I, persuading her that I was not having a sexual relationship with Tiger,” Rachel said. “We spoke about how I understood Tiger, how I knew his pals, how and why I remained in Australia.”
Elin appeared to think Rachel and Tiger and, two days later, Rachel said she and the golf enthusiast wanted each other a Delighted Thanksgiving, eased that they had gotten away with it.
” Between this silly story and the phone call with Elin I remember thinking, oh my God, we’re going to move right over this,” she stated. Tiger and I texted throughout the day, stating that we had a lot to be grateful for.
In truth, that night Rachel stated Tiger sent her a text stating, “You were the only one I ever loved.” “I keep in mind just feeling that things had never been much better between us and after that he told me that he was taking an Ambien and going to sleep,” she said.
However then the night took a significant turn. “When I got another text from him, I was kind of stunned,” she stated. “What came through was something like, ‘When am I gon na see you once again?’ And then the phone sounded. I responded to saying something like, ‘Hey babe, I believed you went to sleep.’ And, rather of Tiger’s voice, it was Elin. And she said, ‘I knew it was you.'”
That night would end up being infamous after Tiger crashed his cars and truck into a fire hydrant near his Florida house and reports swirled that a marital bust-up had actually been the cause, with Elin utilizing a golf club to smash his automobile window.
Tiger’s life spiraled out of control. He entered into rehabilitation for sex dependency, divorced Elin and became the butt of talk program comedians after many women came out of the woodwork, alleging they were his girlfriend too.
Rachel, who preserved her silence for more than a decade until this HBO documentary, was targeted by the paparazzi. The two-part documentary, Tiger, is available on HBO and on the streaming service, HBO Max.
