Tiger Woods Didn't Pay Rachel a Penny

12/4/2009 11:33 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Tiger Woods and Rachel UchitelSources tell TMZ Rachel Uchitel did not make any financial deal with Tiger Woods -- and there are two reasons she torpedoed her scheduled news conference yesterday: fear and secrets.

Sources say in the wee hours of the morning yesterday, after many phone calls back and forth between Rachel, Tiger and their reps, Rachel decided not to come out fighting at a news conference. She walked away without taking a cent from Tiger Woods. One very connected source said, "This was absolutely not about money."

Sources say Rachel became "scared for her safety" because she knows so much about Tiger, his alleged affairs and a variety of other Woods matters. We're told Tiger confided in Rachel ... she knows specifics about "other women," as well as information about Tiger's marriage.

The sources were quick to point out, Rachel does not fear Tiger, as much as she fears all the other people caught in what is becoming a very large net.

Rachel, we're told, just wants to disappear for a while.

Wow! Fear and secrets, and oooo so scared of other people in the large net. Not getting paid, bull crap. Tiger made a deal to pay and will make sure she gets paid but will be sure to cover his tracks to whom ever ends up paying her. Who wrote the fear and secrets fairy tail? Like the public going to buy it. He should have paid off the one who shared her voice mail. Elin don't just settle for 5mil to stay. That's chicken feed for Tiger, the worm. Ask for $25mil just to stay & $36mil for every year you stay with the worm.

Gloria is trying to make Rachel out to be Tiger's 'bottom b*tch'(to quote a South Park episode) aka the most important ho.
The fact is she was probably just one of many and doesn't deserve even the 150K the Jaimee bimbo got, she had voicemail! Unless she gots some multimedia evidence I doubt her story is worth much. And it's only going to lose value the longer it goes.

Tiger doesn't have to show his face in public for another two months and all he has to do is throw a series of wet blankets out before he has show his face at a golf tournament, aka first a few appearances with is wife around Christmas, then later maybe a public comment on video a few weeks later, etc. Because if his wife is seen forgiving him then basically the story ends, aka Kobe, Switzer. THe next big star would be the women who Tiger cheats with after his wife supposedly forgives him the first time.

Rachel better grab that 1 million dollar Vivid contract before Rachel or some other Tiger hos sign it.

I hope that Rachel is scared! Maybe it will teach her not to get involved with a married man ever again.

No money?? Its ALL about the money... these homewreckers only slept with Tiger because he has tons of money. This slut hires an attorney for what reason? To save her reputation...lol Either she has been paid off, or she will write a tell/tell book for money. Tiger is a fool! To jeapordize his family for these used up women, that are a dime a dozen.

The deal her and Gloria made with Tiger was that they will never say she took money and and instead concocted this fear angle so she doesn't look like she's just another gold digger. But trust me she got a MILLIONS. And you'd have to freakin' nuts to believe that she was too scared to put a few million in her bank. Now she can pay for all the security she needs.

Uh, duh! When you pay somone to shut up that's exactly what they do. Why WOULD they have press conference once the money was secured?

Isn't Elin, Tiger's nanny? She needs to stop damaging his property and start conducting herself like a young lady, not like out of control help. Silence is golden - Duct tape is silver

Rachel is a decent strategist.

1. She dramatically accelerated the crisis nature of recent events to the point that she coaxed an immediate massive reaction out of Tiger. During the "frantic" phone calls right before the scheduled press conference, he probably divulged information to her that he would not have had she not threatened to hold the press conference.

2. After the phone calls, she probably had a pretty close to complete picture of her actual position in his circus, and she chose to not strike any compensation deal, due to the fact that she did not want Tiger to have any leverage over her whatsoever.

3. The fact that she is disappearing only probably means that she has already cut a deal with a publishing house for a tell-all book and will be working with a writer over the next weeks to assemble it. Where Rachel is going to make serious money is on the sale of the book as well as media appearances.

4. Rachel will probably profit in many ways from this episode in her life beyond her wildest dreams.
