And just when you thought you knew everything about the Tiger Woods cheating scandal, someone goes out and unearths amazing details about that fateful Thanksgiving night. Turns out Elin impersonated Tiger, sent lovey-dovey text messages to his harem.
That afternoon, Woods left his cellphone unattended, and Nordegren scrolled through his call history. She found another name, Jaimee Grubbs, and called her. Nordegren got voice mail. She left a message.
“You know who this is,” Nordegren said, “because you are f- -king my husband.”
Tiger soon found out what happened and quickly sent this text to Grubbs.
“Hey, it’s, uh . . . it’s Tiger,” he said. “Can you please take your name off your phone? My wife went through my phone and, uh, may be calling you. So if you can, please take your name off that. And, um . . . just have it as a number on the voice mail. OK? You got to do this for me. Huge. Quickly. All right, bye.”
Wait, it gets better—much, much better. Tiger passed out from a cocktail of ambien and vicodin. That’s when Nordegren went to work on Rachel Uchitel.
“I miss you,” Nordegren wrote. “When are we seeing each other again?”
Uchitel replied immediately, expressing surprise that Woods was up.
Nordegren called Uchitel immediately. “I knew it was you,” she said. “I know everything.”
“Oh, f- -k,” Uchitel said. She hung up.
So then Tiger awakes from his slumber, grabs the phone and runs to the bathroom. Tells Uchitel divorce is imminent and that he’s packing his bags. And then, ALL HELL BROKE LOOSE! Nordegren threw the phone at Tiger breaking his tooth. He escaped the house into his Escalade and then, BAM, the crash hear round the world.
Four years later and it’s still compelling.
