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.

Now he feels he needs to buy her a ring to shut her up? Tiger forgot the golden rule of marriage and lost control of his wife: beat your wife every morning - if you don't know why she deserves it, she does.

i don't buy this story ... No way Tiger's friends are ratting him out while the New York Slut is saying he is innocent. Tiger is way to smart to come home from the hospital after a brawl and wreck,and then start calling his friends to give them the juicy gossip. TMZ is full if S@#t in this one.

Mr. and Mrs. Woods should tell medialoid--mainstream media infected by tabloid journalism--to STFU. Without a warrant, M/M Woods don't have to say jack to the cops...AND THEY SHOULD NOT. It's their personal business; the incident occurred on their personal residence premises. Mr. Woods' admirers deserve only his best on the golf course. I admire M/M Woods and everyone in the Woods camp for staying completely silent on this matter. Mr. Woods will pay for the fire hydrant and that's the END OF THE STORY. The same thing happened to Michael Jackson: an extraordinary entertainer and gracious humanitarian was literally destroyed by medialoid. Michael's meteoric rise in the annals of pop culture crashed violently with the abandonment of responsible journalism. Packs of reporter jackals did not comprehend their correct place in the world or operate from journalistic integrity and decency. Stand firm, Tiger Woods. You and your family deserve your privacy. Just say no to medialoid.

It's going to be quite funny to see Tiger Woods and his wife sue the rags, i.e. NE, TMZ, et al. and win for defamation of character!

After all these years of keeping his friends close to his chest and his personal life PRIVATE, a "close friend" to whom he supposedly confided runs to TMZ and gets paid for information? Someone is having fun making up facets to the story. Also, if members of the Florida Highway Patrol are leaking, there needs to be a full investigation by their chief and the unprofessional law enforcement officers needs to be fired. There are a lot of unemployed and professional people who would like to have their jobs.

Ummmmmm....Tiger Woods would not shop at Zale's and neither would Kobe Bryant.

What a sorry FIDIOT who lip synched his vows and sinks his putt into any hole he pleases. I hope his wifey and mistress take him for everything he has, destroy his image and career, and both dump his lying cheating ass. Kiss your family goodbye, Tiger. YOU CAN BE SURE YOU'VE MADE YOUR *DEAD FATHER* PROUD!

Tiger, Tiger, Tiger:
You want to drive your putter and balls into another hole, that's fine. Just don't act surprised that the wife-unit, who loves your bank account, reacts somewhat aggressively.

What does the skank-on-the-side prefer? The wood or the iron? Just wondering!
