Rachel Uchitel — Tiger Woods alleged mistress No. 1 in your program — is denying rumors that she was out with Woods at a party this weekend, and has been staying with him on his yacht. Uchitel is indeed in Palm Beach, where Woods’ yacht is docked, but told Access Hollywood today that she did not go to the city’s Everglades Club with Woods or anyone else over the weekend, as has been reported by Entertainment Tonight and the New York Daily News.
In fact, photos have surfaced on Page2Live.com, showing Uchitel at 251 Sunrise — a local club — on Saturday night, speaking with a man in a backward Yankee baseball cap. Uchitel told Access Hollywood’s Billy Bush that she was at the club until around 2:30 AM when she left with a group of eight friends.
Additionally, Gloria Allred, released a statement to Access Hollywood shooting down reports that Uchitel has been spotted with Woods.
“Ms. Uchitel has had absolutely no contact with Tiger Woods for quite some time, and has not seen him or had any communication with him since she has been in Palm Beach.”
Meanwhile, WESH 2 in Orlando is reporting that the Florida Highway Patrol noticed that Tiger Woods had a “fat lip” during their meeting on December 1, but was not a candidate for facial surgery. This runs contrary to claims by a retired Atlanta Journal Constitution sportswriter, Furman Bisher, who reported on his blog recently that Woods needed facial surgery for wounds inflicted by wife Elin Nordegren the night of the accident.
FHP spokesperson, Kim Montes, said that three FHP officials met with Woods and his local attorney at an undisclosed location in Orlando that day. “The only thing we noticed was a fat lip,” she said. “No other facial injuries … No reason to believe he was the victim of domestic violence.”
Woods’ location remains a mystery to the public as he celebrates his 34th birthday today.
Of course, Uchitel at first denied any contact with Woods when the story first broke, then recanted, then canceled a press conference. Who knows what her deal is? The notion that Woods’ face was not a mangled mess on Dec. 1 is a little easier to believe.
