Tiger Woods Former Mistress Breaks Silence on His Devastating Car Crash
Rachel Uchitel told The Post she’s “shaken up” over Tiger Woods car crash that had fire crews using the jaws of life to pull him out. Reportedly, the golfer traveled at a “greater speed than normal.”
“Obviously hearing the news has shaken me up as it’s probably shaken everybody up to see that. Hearing [agent Mark Steinberg] say that he’s in surgery for his legs is something that really worries me and when you hear a comment like that you know it’s true,” Uchitel said by phone Tuesday afternoon.
Authorities transported Woods to a local hospital where doctors performed a “long surgical procedure” on both his right ankle and leg.
Tiger Woods’ former mistress is also concerned about what the injuries mean for his career.
“He’s an athlete and his legs are essential to his sport and to him being who he is and he’s already had trouble with his body up until this point,” the 45-year-old said.
“He didn’t need any more injuries.”
Uchitel was thrust into major news back in 2009 after a separate car crash brought Woods’ infidelity into the national spotlight.
Back in 2017, Woods made the news again after he was arrested for DUI in Florida after cops found him passed out behind the wheel of his Mercedes-Benz following a minor car accident. He told cops at the time he had a reaction to several prescription drugs, including Vicodin and Xanax.
“I’m not gonna speculate on any of that until we see how he’s doing,” Uchitel said.
“First and foremost people should hear how he is before they go down the rabbit hole on… how he got there in the first place. Let’s just hear how he is.”
