10 Million Reasons

Tiger Was Afraid of Rachel

4/1/2010 12:05 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has learned Rachel Uchitel -- the pilgrim of alleged mistresses -- settled up with Tiger Woods for waaaaaaay more than you think ... as in $10 MILLION!!

10 Million
There were numerous reports Rachel settled on the brink of holding a Gloria Allred-style news conference for anywhere between $2 - 5 million.

But our sources -- and they are good -- tell TMZ Tiger was so concerned with the depth and detail of information from Alleged Mistress #1 that they folded like a cheap suit, and offered the huge $10 million sum in return for an ironclad confidentiality agreement.

TMZ has learned the actual settlement could fluctuate $1 million either way, depending on future circumstances. But the baseline is $10 mil.

Compare Rachel's settlement with what other A.M's received, if they got anything at all. We're told several mistresses got several hundred thousand dollars, and others got nothing. That speaks volumes about how much Rachel knows.

Insiders are saying Rachel's settlement could be a precursor to what Elin Nordegren could get if she pulls the plug on her marriage to Tiger. Reports that Elin could get $300 million under the prenup are absurd. It's more likely the prenup is in the $5 - 10 million range, with provisions for support. But insiders tell us -- with the backdrop of Rachel's settlement -- there's no way Tiger would get off cheaper than $20 mil.

Why is he paying these women off, they are looking just as bad as him when they come out and tell their story. Why now just let them all make fools out of themselve.

Rachel Uchitel is a liar, a thief, a slut, a whore and a criminal who is almost certainly infected with herpes, AIDS and/or chlamydia.
Rachel's lawyer, Gloria Allred, is a mentally ill blackmailer who cheated her way through law school.
I state the foregoing as a fact based upon information and belief.
Gloria, you know how to reach me. It is my sincere hope you develop anal cancer and die an agonizing death very soon.

How much you wanna be that this news will bring out at least a half dozen more mistresses. Heck, if I were a Freda instead of a Freddie I'd be one of them.

Amazing for four reasons:
1) Rachel scores probably far more money than first anticipated
2) The payoff is completely ineffective because of all the other sources of essentially the same information, if not even more damning information about Tiger's cheating (and not using condoms, the abortions, long list of mistresses, using his own golf business staff to assist, etc.)
3) Rachel may now have use of much more money from Tiger than Elin does, and this news is going to enrage how many dozens of people and the divorce lawyers.
4) Once again, Tiger's kids will get more of the picture of what are the top priorities to Tiger: ABSOLUTELY NOT HIS OWN FAMILY! How does it feel to be abandoned by a sociopath moron? Probably better off getting him out of the picture, if you really think about it.

If she got that much, and I'm skeptical (don't care who your sources are), he got ripped off.

Gloria Allred you are f***ing scum!!! You are nothing more than a female pimp. You will rot in hell for your shameless pitiful career of extortion. The only creature that could love or care for someone like you can only be the Devil himself. I almost feel for him.

The pre-nup will not be accepted in a court of law after they reveal the massive deception put on by Tiger; he was meeting these mistresses before, during and after wedding day and the behavior was completely consistent. Elin got married under an illusion set up by Tiger Woods. The pre-nup will absolutely not withstand scrutiny. In the LOVE department, Tiger Woods is a Ponzi Scheme operator.

I dont think the money is an indication of how much she knows. If you remember, she was the first ho the press knew about, so Tiger probably thought if he kept her quiet he would get away with it all.

There is a special place in Hell for this Devil Woman and the 10 million won't buy her way out.

Wow, no wonder Joslyn James is ticked off; she was forgotten by whoremonger Woods. It appears Rachel has herpes on her tongue. Bet that's not all she and Tiger have. He's so scared she might spill the beans that he's paying her $10,000,000. What does she know?

Poor, poor Elin. How much longer is she going to stick with this SOB? Her children would be better off not seeing their father, or at least not living with him.
