Sleeping With Tiger Woods Is Now America’s Only Thriving Industry

Alex Blagg / April 1, 2010

Having trouble making ends meet in these troubled economic times? Try having an affair with Tiger Woods—apparently, it’s very lucrative. The golf great has reportedly shelled out a staggering $10 million to his Alleged Mistress #1, Rachel Uchitel—who’s being represented by attorney/publicity junkie Gloria Allred—in exchange for her silence. Yes, you read that correctly, $10 million:

There were numerous reports Rachel settled on the brink of holding a Gloria Allred-style news conference for anywhere between $2 – 5 million.

But our sources — and they are good — tell TMZ Tiger was so concerned with the depth and detail of information from Alleged Mistress #1 that they folded like a cheap suit, and offered the huge $10 million sum in return for an ironclad confidentiality agreement.

TMZ has learned the actual settlement could fluctuate $1 million either way, depending on future circumstances. But the baseline is $10 mil.

How horrifying are the details of Tiger Woods’ sex life, that he’s willing to shell out $10 million to keep them hushed up? Wait; we don’t wanna know. Well, we kinda do. But  not that badly.

Do you think a $10 million payout is adequate compensation for sleeping with Tiger Woods? If not, what do you think Uchitel should have received? Share your estimates in the comments section.
