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.

Rachael corresponds to a '1' in numerology and they have to be at the head of the line, the leader. '1s' are independent, ambitious and self-reliant. However, when they go awry, they are domineering,self-centered and greedy. http://www.oraclesandarchetypes.com

It seems like these whores KISS TO TELL a bit too much!!! When you would do anything for money hence the results. Like my Mother says when you lie down with dogs you get up with fleas. Tiger got exactly what he deserved, i hope he did not take any sickness home to his wife. How sad when you are faithful to someone and they are all over town whoring with whores!!

These women are disgusting. They actually expect us to believe they were exploited? Hello! They knowingly slept with a married man. Then they demanded money. As the old saying goes, they established what they were when they slept with Tiger. Now it's just a matter of negotiating price.

What could she possibly know that hasn't already been made public? You've got several women sharing their text messages, etc. with the world, one claiming to have had miscarriages, at least one who said she slept in the bed of Tiger and Elin. How much more damaging could this Rachel slut possibly be? Unless she gave birth to a child....which I highly doubt....what more is there?

I'm just wondering what she could possibly know that would be worth 10 mil. We already know he screwed God knows how many women, including her, so what is the big secret?

Is there proof he gave her 10 MIL? Reasons why he would! She was the one he text the night Elin caught him. So he thought she was the only payoff he'd have.Or she had been hooking him up with people, and she said she had to pay them all off. Maybe he had sex w/guys or children. Owed the IRS,took steriods, planned on killing his wife ,etc . Either he was duped very badly by her, or he was doing something illegal, or that would turn the public against him. Or he knew that 10 MIl was nothing compared to what Elin would get in a divorce settlement.He was so right. I read she got over 700 million.
