REPORT: Tiger Woods Checks Into Rehab For ‘Pain Killer Addiction’ To Avoid Losing Custody of Kids

Tiger Woods

The hits just keep on coming for the former #1 golfer in the world.

Just a few weeks ago, Tiger Woods was arrested in Florida for a DUI, and he stands to lose a lot more than his reputation if he doesn’t straighten up. 

According to the Daily Mail, Woods has reportedly checked himself into rehab for addiction to prescription medication, because if he didn’t, he would run the risk of losing custody of his children.

“The golfer is said to have booked out the entire male inpatient unit at The Jupiter Medical Center for 28 days to be treated for ‘pain killer addiction’. 

Radar Online cites an anonymous source who said the stint aims to settle the concerns of his ex-wife Elin Nordegren.

The pair have shared custody of daughter Sam, nine, and son Charlie, eight, since their 2010 divorce but, according to the friend, part of their agreement was that Woods was to avoid any public scandal in order to keep his share.

If he breaks it, he could see his time with the children cut by 20 percent – leaving them with Elin 70 percent of the time and giving him just 30 percent. 

Woods’ arrest on May 29 has prompted her to consider applying for full custody of the children, they claimed.  

The Jupiter Medical Center declined to comment on his reported stay on Monday and lawyers involved in negotiating his custody agreement with Nordegren did not respond to requests.”

Just over a week ago, Tiger dropped to his lowest ever world golf ranking: 899th.
