Tiger: I Need a 'Kobe Special'

11/29/2009 3:30 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Tiger Woods had a "Kobe Special" on his brain hours after what looks like a domestic dispute with his wife, Elin Nordegren -- this according to someone who spoke with Tiger on Friday.

Tiger Woods

During the phone conversation on Friday, Tiger told his friend, "I have to run to Zales to get a 'Kobe Special.'" The person on the other end of the phone asked Tiger what a "Kobe Special" was. The reply -- "A house on a finger."

During the conversation, Tiger said his wife had "gone ghetto" on him.

As we first reported, Tiger told the friend his wife had scratched his face up during an argument over a report that the golf great had cheated on her. The "other woman" named in the story -- Rachel Uchitel -- calls the report "bulls**t."

Tiger WoodsOf course, the Kobe reference is the now-famous house/ring he gave his wife Vanessa after the whole Colorado thing. We're assuming Tiger was joking, though he can certainly afford it.

Whatever    

OMG Zales?! I'd really be pissed if my billion dollar husband bought my ring at Zales. Tiffany's is the place to go.

This story has legs and the full name of the woman in question is -Rachel Uchitel Asmar (a Middle East name). Sounds like a potentially similar story to that of Elliott Spitzer's hooker and everyone should be investigating her as her "event planning" was likely high-end prostitution. I suggest in this case, however, she had a friend leak the story to ruin our man.

None of the statements posted have any basis in fact. Tiger did the absolute correct thing if his wife did hit at him. When either party engages in any sort of violent or potentially violent behavior, the other party should immediately leave for a cool down period. One poster is very correct. Tiger does not talking ghetto vernacular. The Austrian mix seems phony. Tiger had his and E. entire family and a huge number of friends with him He was busy playing golf and doing PR and other than that he was surrounded by press or family.

HA HA his kids are white, does it mean they are not his kids?? I bet
if this was Michal Jackson they would have harrased those kids about
their race. Tiger kids are white, lol...

he thought he married a white woman bc the media fooled him that
white women dont act ghetto, shame on you Tiger to think that way.
You should have married your daddy's specie, and maybe you would have
gotten a divorce instead of sracthes on your face. Switish women ar
even more harsher and meaner than the average American women, bc they
raised to be cold hearted people.

And I remember when you said "I am not black". Then what race are you
Tiger? I know skin color doesnt define race, but boy you dont look
chinese or Japanese to me..or what race is yo mama again?

What race are your kids from? They kinda look like a mixture of
races, Black, white, Chinese, wow you have really thinned out your
genetic make up, we might never see another Tiger woods again..



TMZ quit deleting my comments or
I wont come back!!

TMZ lost all credibility months ago when they tried to post a blurry pic of that dead reality/porn star who'd had her fingers cut off and her teeth removed (can't remember her name at all...).

As for this story: NO WAY. Tiger is being so careful, he's not going to basically admit guilt/cheating/violence...whatever...to some "friend" on the phone. This is ridiculous. Check your sources, TMZ.

Tiger is making it worse for himself by not talking to the police or press. What's the big deal about a traffic accident! If it was just that - big deal. As soon as he and his wife started hiding......then you know there is more to it than just an accident.

Sounds like some very phony conversations being put out there. You guys (TMZ) keep going for it too. That's the hobby today, you want a little attention make up something about a celebrity. If it's nasty and vile enough people will believe it.

Lol, she beat Tiger on conscious. Shame on the police, thats the same as Chris Brown beating Rhianna, Tiger wont confess that his wife beat his ass, lol..but she did. With his own golf club. The police needs to investigate it more, bc Tiger could be the victim of domestic violence, no matter what he did, he dont deserved to be beaten and scratched up in the face. If he had hit her, he would have been in jail. Bias!!

Athletes suck    

It's about time some of these male athletes got hit with more then golf clubs. They have lack of respect for themselves as men & definatley for the women they have chosen to what the claim is an exclusive relationship or marriage.. They seem to feel entitlement to behave this way but still maintain the perception there more then they are. EGO's has deystroyed many a man that could be a great man but chooses to use the road of deceit & disloyalty.
This story has guilt written all over it & Im not one to condem one before convicted but in this case I do. People put too high on pedestals are sure to fall off.. PR only protects so far. There are only so many closets to hide in.. You will be caught at some point with being unfaithful & deceitful..

I theorize that this item was made up by someone who works at Zales. Kobe Bryant purchased Vanessa's original wedding ring at Zales many, many years ago. This explains the Zales connection...it was a joke by Tiger. This fact was widely known that the employees nationwide but not sure how public the information was. I hardly think that Tiger would have known where Kobe purchased his ring.
