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.

OK TMZ, I don't believe this story. How do you know Tiger really talked to this person...do you have proof? Why would Tiger, who has billions, go to Zales, of all places to get a ring for his wife...if this is true.

Don't start going National Enquirer on us TMZ. Report the true news about Tiger.

This "friend" sounds like his agent. He shouldn't be telling intimate details but they are such whores they can't avoid the spotlight.

If Tiger has a "FRIEND" running his mouth this much I hope he's a ex frien by now.

It'd be nice to hear the real story from the principles...once they get it straight..HA!..instead of all the conjecture being tossed into the mix...(but without conjecture and rumours then TMZ wouldn't exist ... ;-)

Why was Rachel Uchitel disappointed in Tiger Woods' sexual prowess?
After only 3 or 4 strokes, he moved onto the next hole.

Well, you guys could also look at the funnier aspects in this womans alleged psychotic outburst.
Think in terms of headlines and jokes comparing Elins swing to Tigers.
She must at least have hitted a 3-wood against his head sending him right into that tree..

Sleeping Tiger... weird that the movie of that name is all about the psyche that Tiger is going through... and the movie ends with a car smash... but into a billboard.

@ Mike ..You do not know that she had a 'psychotic outburst' and it is sick of you to be making jokes at the expense of a woman who is obviously hurting..I guess if the truth of what happened ever comes out it wont matter because people like you will be too busy laughing, making jokes and assuming you know what went down. Tiger is not the innocent here and his wife should not be made fun of or made out to be psycho when she is not..can only imagine what could be seen if a magnifying glass was put on your own life? Shame on you..it shows incredible immaturity to make fun of people's pain

Never liked Tiger Woods but I can tell he married the wrong woman. I'll bet she was withholding sex. Tiger was cheating but she drove him to it. In this relationship Tiger was the romantic one and Elin was the calculating one. The manipulative one.
I know this from her body language.
Tiger is more of an innocent goofball. A highly talented and disciplined one, yes.

My daddy always said a black man always wants 2 things in life...a white woman and a Cadillac. Didn't he have both? Don't feign ignorance people...the south will always be the south...and Florida/Orlando is quite southern. Yes, he lives on an elite golf course and so????? he is still a colored man and she is not.

now...Chris brown went to jail. Got indicted , did he not? He is black... ole Swed will not see a day in jail...trust me.

too bad it happened, but Tiger? Honey? still to what u know..

Mark Steinberg, Tiger's Agent, March 29, 2007

What is the most important aspect of being a sports agent?

"HONESTY and INTEGRITY. Athletes in general sometimes feel that people are out there to take advantage of them since they are high profile people who are making a lot of money. Athletes are very wary about who is a part of their "inner circle." What I've learned in the past 15 years is to be honest and tell the truth. What I mean by that is not just to be a yes man or a yes woman, but to tell the truth, speak your opinion and be a straight shooter."

Who is this so called "friend"? Don't believe this story for a second. Is this "friend" the worst golfer ever and has no real golf skills so he has to go and bash the best. Yeah, right.
