First it was Arizona, then South Africa, and now the new, hot report is that Tiger Woods is undergoing sex rehab in Mississippi. While it’s possible that Mr. Woods was taking a tour of all those facilities (“What is the magazine situation in your lobby?”), more likely two, or possibly all three, of those rumors are false. But for the sake of the good folks of the Magnolia State, let’s ponder this report, which seems to be originating from Radar Online.
Oh, and today several cops showed up at the facility in question, for whatever that’s worth.
According to reports by Radar Online and the TV stations WLBT (NBC) and WJTV in Jackson, MS, Woods has checked in to Pine Grove Behavioral Health and Addiction Services, considered one of the best sexual addiction clinics in the nation. It’s directed by Dr. Patrick Carnes, who has pioneered treatment for sexually compulsive behavior. Spokespeople for the clinic, of course, could not confirm or deny that Woods is there. But their Tiger Woods Abstinence Best Ball Scramble and Pancake Breakfast charity event this weekend is kind of a giveaway.*
WJTV said in a post today that “Employees and visitors at Pine Grove Behavioral Health and Addiction Services in Hattiesburg confirm Tiger Woods is at the facility.” WLBT is also reporting that Woods is there.
But then, tragedy strikes!
Cops were called Friday afternoon to the sex addiction facility where Tiger Woods is receiving treatment, RadarOnline.com has learned exclusively.
As RadarOnline.com reported first in a world exclusive, Tiger is at Pine Grove Behavioral Health and Addiction Services in Hattiesburg, Miss. Tiger checked in to receive sex addiction treatment, sources told RadarOnline.com.
Two cop cars pulled up to the clinic Friday afternoon and officers went inside, RadarOnline.com is reporting exclusively. The cars were marked.
Heavens! Is our hero in danger? Stay tuned.
* = May not be true.
Update: Out of Bounds commenter Trey West may have broke the news first. He wrote this in the comment section of the South Africa rehab post on Thursday:
wrong! he’s here in my hometown of hattiesburg, ms. checked into pine grove earlier today. believe me in this small town it’s BIG news!
