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.

No worries for Rachel about a Saturday night ho-down. I believe they will emerge if they want(read: mo-nay)and do just fine without her snatching. Unless they start blackmailing her over secrets that Tiger may be blabbering about. IDK, perhaps someone should be sued for definition of character.

Hiring a "celebrity lawyer" doesn't make extortion legal. Adultery is no longer illegal but demanding money to keep quiet about it is.

Hmmm, must be some kind of deal on the back end. But hey, there are oodles of ways she can make bank on the affair:

Tiger should do like what David Letterman did, come out and admit that he had affairs with these women or whores(the later being a better term) that way he wont have them blackmailing him and he wont have to pay them a damn penny. they do not deserve to get paid for breaking up a marriage and being whores.its RIDICULOUS

Ellin, look just take the future like your still a nanny, except very well paid, the longer you stay the more cash you get. He'll never stop the girls thing but you can hold his image over him like a club.

Your welcome.

For those of you saying Elin should walk away and divorce him that would be the dumbest move from a financial standpoint. He has a solid prenup so if she leaves she gets hardly anything but now she will be able to renegotiate that prenup and get a larger chunk in a shorter time frame and have this saga to hold over his head anytime she wants or needs something a little extra special...but in the end they don't care what any of us think about them as he will still dominate golf and the world of marketing and make 100's of millions every year...this will do nothing to hurt his image, if anything it might help in the fact it makes seem more like all of us and not so super human...besides everyone cheats, men and women it's just part of life...

Riiiight. "Tiger" is not paying. Got it.

That's code for Tiger's lawyer friend is paying Rachel - right?
Kind of exactly like how Jon Edwards didn't pay money to his baby momma - but his lawyer friend did.

Last night you reported a source told you she took 1 million dollars? I think generally you do good reporting. Why did your source, i'm assuming the same one, mislead you? And isn't that a story?

Can we mention GOLF? Tiger's knee injury - an unbalanced mind leads to an unbalanced body. First sign he was in trouble. And he is still off his feed, game wise. Again, unbalanced, no focus. His career is a shambles. I am sorry for that. When he was featured on the Wheaties box years ago, at the start of his career, I purchased a box and have never opened it. Saved it to give to a young person in my family that may be a great golfer some day. Now I will toss it. Tiger is no longer a role model for youth. How sad.

think she fears getting a golf club to the face

honestly what does tiger think, having sex with them is one thing if just sex then not as bad but confiding with them personal matters about his wife is breaking an even bigger bond. no way his wife should stay with him more on and start her life over
