The news of Tiger Woods’ extramarital affair with Rachel Uchitel shocked fans when it was released over 10 years ago. The scandal followed a scary car accident involving the golf star, which reportedly happened after a falling out with his now ex-wife Elin Nordegren. Immediately after the incident, Uchitel denied having an affair with Woods, claiming the cheating rumors were unfounded. “This has nothing to do with me,” she told Us Weekly in 2009. “I don’t see why anyone would think this has anything to do with me.”
Months later, the National Enquirer published a story identifying Uchitel as the woman at the center of Wood’s cheating scandal. Details of Woods’ messy affair later played out in the 2019 HBO documentary Tiger. After the film’s release, Uchitel claimed that Woods’ legal team was seeking damages after she reportedly breached an $8 million non-disclosure agreement. Now Uchitel is working on a new project that could worry Woods.
Rachel Uchitel has plans for a tell-all book
Tiger Woods’ life and career following his cheating scandal with Rachel Uchitel was fraught with “dark times,” as the athlete described to CNN. He was arrested for DUI, lost a string of endorsement deals, and Elin Nordegren filed for divorce. However, Woods made a career-defining comeback in 2019 and has since reclaimed his place as one of the sport’s foremost competitors. However, new reports suggest that Uchitel may be working on a new project that could reignite interest in Woods’ 2009 leaks.
According to Page Six, Uchitel has teamed up with notable literary agent David Vigliano and is buying a collector’s book from major publishers. Sources revealed to the outlet that the book will detail the death of Uchitel’s fiancée in the September 11 attacks. And while Uchitel and Vigliano declined to comment on the reports, insiders claim the book will of course shed light on the former TV personality’s affair with Woods.
