Tiger faces love child claims

2009-12-19 21:14

Orlando - A woman who allegedly had Tiger Woods's love child is said to be negotiating £2m hush money from the scandal-plagued golfer.

According to the Mail Online website, Theresa Rogers confided to a friend that she believed Woods was the father of her six-year-old daughter, according to a report in the US.

Now the 48-year-old has allegedly hired Los Angeles celebrity lawyer Gloria Allred to represent her in talks with the golfer's representatives.

The lawyer is already thought to have negotiated a £3m deal for another of Woods's alleged mistresses, 34-year-old New York club promoter Rachel Uchitel, in return for her silence.

Rogers, a fitness fanatic from Wellington, Florida, was said to be also having an affair with a Serbian basketball player at the time her baby was born. Quoting sources close to Rogers, RadarOnline website said she was actively trying to have a baby by the golf star with the blessing of her fourth husband, clothing designer Wayne Rogers, who was unable to get her pregnant.

Rogers emerged earlier this week as the latest and oldest of the golfer's alleged 11 lovers. She reportedly had a five year relationship with Woods dating from before his 2004 marriage to Swedish wife Elin Nordegren.

Rogers has not commented publicly on the love child claims, but RadarOnline said she has boasted to friends about the relationship.

"Theresa was bragging about her affair with Tiger last week. She wasn't making a secret of it," said a source.

    Wow Tiger deserves the title of best bedroom athlete as well. How can we be upset with Joost anymore when this guy has taken it to the extreme. Another failed role model. I'm just waiting for Miley Cyrus to get pregnant before I ban the kids from looking up to these people.

    Most African men secretly evy Tiger Woods like they envy Jacob Zuma - myself included.

    Tiger old buddy, you made a couple of mistakes, so what? Most men do and it is not the end of the world. Now hear this, if you do have a love child and the child is yours proven by DNA testing, then you now have a responsibility. Not just financial, if the kid is your's, YOU are the daddy and one another time that child is going to ask questions, hope you do the right thing.

    I would demand my "£2m hush money" back as she evidently didn't keep quite!

  • vonne - 2009-12-20 11:32

    Why is this woman only now announcing that she had a "love child" SIX years ago from Tiger Woods?? Why not at the time?? I don't agree at all with men having affairs, but I think that there are one or two women "jumping on the band wagon"...

  • Greg - 2009-12-20 12:09

    What do you expect from a so called "clean" guy. He is disgusting and deserves to be castrated. Now all you bible belt preachers - do not even go there with"You who is without sin, cast the first stone". Preach to your flock not to me....

  • StuartW - 2009-12-21 09:47

    Thank you Karen....why do they always just blame one party....does anybody really know what happened where and to whom? So, he made some mistakes, but often these mistakes come from women only going out to try and see how many celebs they can sleep with....ever though about that?

  • Themba Nel - 2009-12-21 10:09

    @Greg Considering these women were adults, and not minors, what do we do to them? There is no accusation of rape here, rather consenting adults having sex. Unless of course we see women as unable to make their own decisions in who they have sex with

  • Brandon - 2009-12-21 13:26

    Dear Anon, It would appear that all of these "virgins" gave themselves WILLINGLY to Tiger, for fame and fortune and poor tiger got catch up in the moment and could not but to say yes to his fans and thus please everyone as far as possible in different ways. It now hardly presents a case of Tiger being deserving of a beating when a simple NO by the ladies concerned would have ended the matter there and then.RIGHT?? However, clearly its a matter of "different strokes for different folks".....

  • Jacob - 2009-12-22 08:23

    All these woman entered into a relationship with Tiger willingly, with their eyes and legs wide open. The law should not allow them to be paid off, they should just be ordered to keep silent.

  • Punani - 2009-12-22 10:40

    What the hell are us South Africans moaning about. We have a State President with four wives, more than twenty kids from various woman and he has slept with hundreds of others girls, sometimes even allegedly forcefully. Tiger should just attribute this scandal to a barbaric long lost tribal custom, torture and kill a cow his bare hands and the world will leave him alone. It works over here.
