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.

I hope this is not true about tiger having a fling he has always conducted himself in a very respectful manner. And I don't believe he would use the words GHETTO on him, I think what ever happened is probably far less interesting than what is being said.

This is DUNCE Tiger, talking on the phone while he's in the hospital, and people made it their business what the idiot was saying. Too bad for Tiger's STUPIDITY once again.

Bap.... No where other than smart-ass speculation did she hit him with a golf club. What we do know is she hit the vehicle probably more than once with the club. He has scratches on his face. If she hit him with a golf club, he probably would not be here. And if she did, probably be sitting in dentist chair.

If NIKE were smart they would use Tiger's wife in a commercial. "Our shoes are so great, that a 100lb. Swedish girl can out run a Cadillac Escalade!" "Try doing that with Adidas!"
But seriously folks, I have a new take on this episode. SHE was driving the car into the tree because he was trying to bail on her! When she knocked out the rear window he stopped, got out, and she screamed you're not going anywhere! She then plowed down the hydrant and slammed into the tree. She came back and gave her husband 40 whacks. When she saw what she had done, smacked his mouth for 41.

YA    

Tiger, time to move on. This person will always be a thorn on your shoulders and has proven to be violent. Unfortunately she will always be a thorn on your shoulders because you have children. You married her and proabily didn't know the violent potential then, but this incident proves it. Just try and take care of the children, which I suspect she will try and use against you. But you are young and build on your future without your past.

NO ONE FINDS IT STRANGE THAT HE IS FOUND ON THE GROUND PASSED OUT WITH HER STANDING OVER HIM WITH A CLUB?

HE SAID NO INJURIES WERE FROM THE CRASH THEY WERE ALL FROM HER. IF TRUE THAT MEANS SHE WAS WACKING HIM IN THE HEAD WITH THAT CLUB AFTER HE CRASHED!!

SHOULDN'T THE COPS BEING CHECKING TO SEE IF HE IS STILL ALIVE?

The wife looks like Reese Witherspoon. I wouldn't consider her pretty but whatever to each their own.

I can't believe the losers on here who are defending Tiger and slagging his wife and accusing her of being a gold digger. He CHOSE to marry her and she is no Vanessa Bryant who is a royal b!tch. Elin is a nice person with no scandal around her whatsoever and yes if you hear rumors or have evidence that your husband is cheating YOU ARE GOING TO BE ANGRY! Maybe Tiger should have been a man and stayed inside his home to face his wife rather than running away like a pansy..if the fool is afraid of a golf club then maybe he better find a new gig. Athletes are egotistical and think they can do whatever they want and take for granted that they have devoted wives who are by their side raising their kids and what a disgusting way to show their 'love' by cheating with ugly old skanks. Tiger is lucky he did not suffer the same fate as Steve McNair..you want to play you pay! Elin should take a cue from Shaunie O'Neal and pack up the kids and move to California and file for divorce and get half of his money..Shaunie put up with Shaq's lying, cheating ways for too long and she finally had enough after she recently found out he was having a 4 year affair with one of her best friends.. Maybe Tiger and Shaq can shack up since they live in the same neighborhood. They do not deserve the women they were blessed to have and shame on them for hurting their wives AND their children. Tiger is such a coward he cannot even face the cops who want to question him..he likely has a pain killer addiction due to his surgeries so he is a stoned, cheating husband who is going to lose it all..Elin is far too good for him and I'm sure she has more self respect than Vanessa Bryant who sits back and does nothing while Kobe continues to cheat on her very publicly. No amount of money in the world can buy dignity or class Vanessa!

Tiger obviously does not watch TWO & A HALF MEN. Well say goodbye to half a billion dollars plus alimony plus child support.
I am going to throw up now.

Sounds like one of Tigers' less well off hangers on is selling him out. Either that or someone is just tapping his cellphone convos, which I wouldn't put past the papparazzi to do. TMZ, how much are you guys paying for stories on the "Uchitel gets her Wood" affair?
