Alleged Mistress: Tiger Said Marriage a Sham

12/7/2009 11:25 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Tiger Woods told one of his alleged mistresses his marriage was a sham -- "It's only for publicity" -- this, according to her lawyer.

We've also learned she has lurid details of the alleged 2-year affair and Tiger's lawyer has already contacted her attorney.

Michael O'Quinn tells TMZ his client -- O'Quinn asked us not to ID her by name but it's not Jamie Junger -- met Tiger Woods at Roxy Nightclub in Orlando, Florida in 2004. Tiger was engaged at the time. The woman -- then a 20-year-old cocktail waitress at the club -- claims she went back to Tiger's and had sex the night they met, and then carried on an affair for the next two years.

At a point she says she wanted out of the relationship because Tiger had already married Elin Nordegren. She claims Tiger told her his marriage was for image -- "It's only for publicity," she claims he said.

We've learned famed attorney Jay Lavely from Lavely and Singer reached out to O'Quinn this weekend. We've also learned Lavely has had "multiple contacts" with attorneys who represent other women as well.

Just a distraction to keep Americans attention diverted from the 30,000 troops being deployed to Afghanistan. Tiger and Obama working hand in hand.

The British tabloids already have the names revealed, and by their count (depending on which source you read), he's up to at least 6, and most likely 8 mistresses. With that many mistresses, he made that marriage a sham.

I don't think Tiger would marry as a sham to help his marriage. He could have married any one of the ho's, but he picked a beautiful lady to marry & have his children. He probably loved her the way his dad loved his mom. He dad stayed married to Tiger's mom but also had women on the side. Tiger did the same but since he's famous, he got caught. Tiger told the ho's whatever it took to get them to get freaky. Silly ho's believed him and thought they were the only one besides his wife. Elin has the house, the money his kids as insurance she will have whatever she wants the rest of her life and the ho's have their 15 mins of fame.

I don't beiieve for one minute that Elin is/was this stupid to not know what was going on........I think that she and Tiger had a business arrangement and both are now mad that it got out. Elin was paid to produce children to make Tiger look like he was a family man and Elin was paid to look like the adoring wife. I just don't believe that that a of a sudden she is ticked off because she is now just figuring this out............no one is that dumb. This stuff was suppose to be kept under the radar.

How can you feel sorry for them? Everyone involved will likely walk away with more cash and fame than you and me. The kids will probably never have to work a day in their lives. People who get married for the wrong reasons often find disaster. Celebrities often get married for the wrong reasons. Sex, money, publicity?

It's their own stupidity. Rich, famous and ignorant. Tiger not an ordinary professional athlete. His discipline is vested in his golf game and apparently not his morals. He's an extreme so chances are he'll always be out of balance.

possibly an open marriage, the key thou. is not to get caught and let it out into the public, that is the deal breaker!!!

Yea, it was a sham alright, just like your wholesome public image which you made millions off of and now you're using to pay off your hoes to keep quiet. Why? to preserve your BS image? SHAM is just short-form for SHAMELESS. So your kids were also for publicity? so you can release family pictures to promote your FAKE image? Yea, people make mistakes but Tiger tried to put on an image of a perfect family man. He made fools out of his fans and the public adoration for him and laughed all the way to the bank. Well, it's all coming out no matter how much money you pay out. Go break a leg.

#64 has the best point..just when America starts to wake up and talk about our financial system and Health Care.. here comes a story that takes us away. I'm guilty too! Huge Tiger fan, still am.. but let's wake up people and see the timing of Obama's Afghanistan plans. TMZ is doing a good job of inside information on entertainment but that's why its called ( Inter - taint - ment)..Focus people...Focus!

P.S. Anyone who thinks his career is over obviously is not familar with A. Rod, Kobe, Tyson, etc. Scandal actually is a good professional move, the problem he's gonna have is obviously at home.

I'm waiting for a black chick to come and admit she had an affair with Tiger. I'll bet you there are none. Tiger is half black, but probably racist towards his race. Tiger's got to get off his high horse now and deal with why he failed...no integrity.
