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.

Will the Masters allow a criminal in handcuffs to play? It might be within the rules, but it would be hard to get that full swing going.

VANITY FAIR releases an issue April 7th with interviews with four mistresses, and apparently the information is very disturbing. Google it, some of the info is already being revealed.

Advisable that all his mistresses and Elin and the kids get top quality 24/7 armed guards. Tiger's cage just keeps getting smaller and smaller and he'll thrash out. If Rachel knows so much, Tiger might send some henchmen after her. Joslyn? Others?

There's more than enough bait in the available news to land the IRS, FBI, PGA and STD investigators. If Tiger's not in jail in 6 months I'll be very surprised.

Well, remember- Rachel was the pimp in this deal- she lined up all the girls that Tiger banged, so she has names and details- THAT'S why he's paying her to keep her quiet.......

Stupid girl- she would have made far more than $10M- minus Alred's 40%- for revealing all the details of this game; It's not like she has her reputation to protect at this point- LOL!

Gotta love pre-nups.... "Yeah honey- I'm paying my pimp girlfriend more than I'm paying you in the divorce- is this your signature on the pre-nup? BUWAHAHAHAHAHAH!!!!!!"

She's a vile vile woman and probably plotted everything from the start. But Mr Woods like all the so called sports superstars is the DUMBEST OF ALL. How could he leave emails, text messages and voice mails to cocktail waitresses or night club hostesses. For sure they were going to capitalize. They had in front of them a ONE BILLION DOLLAR MAN !!!!!! Stupid Tiger. How could you pay her 10 M$ ? She's a prostitute and a whore. Do you think she will keep her mouth shut up ? How naive can you be . Don't trust anyone more than you trust yourself. You must have serious mental issues. Oh boy what a waste of money and a fruitful career. Dummy dummy dummy should be your name right now.
The only reason I think he paid off this huge amount of money - but I highly doubt it - is that he must have told her he used performance enhancing drugs. This is THE ONLY THING that could ruin his career and potentially his WHOLE LIFE. Other than that nothing can surprise me more.

The only thing Alred knows how to do is blackmail and extort money...she's done it for years. Uchitel was a hooker, everyone knows this...Tiger should refuse to pay and just lets the chips fall where they may. Paying a whore that much money, to me is the worst offense he's committed.

Can the FBI investigate Alred and Uchitel?...just because she's an attorney and knows how to circumvent the law, doesn't mean she can get away with it forever. If Uchitel was a madam the police can still launch an investigation.

She was just first in line, that's why she got paid. You know Tiger's damage control team wasn't told of all the others. When they found out, the payments stopped. She's not special. She's just a big titty whore. Tiger lied to them too. But get real, She fucked a married man and knew it, then took $$$ not to talk about it. He's a f'd up cheater and she's a whore. THe other whore's are just pissed they weren't first to out him.

What a vile vile slut she is !!!! She was plotting everything from the beginning. But I don't believe he paid this whore 10M$ . No way. Remember Tiger is cheap. The only reason he would have paid her this money would be if she had any proof he used performance enhancing drugs. That would be the end of his career.
What a dummy he turned out to be. He trusted cocktail waitresses or hostesses !!! For God's sake they are prostitutes in disguise. Don't trust anyone more than you trust yourself. He must have serious mental issues and his PR team should be fired. What a huge mess they made of this story ?

I knew something really stunk when Uchitel and Allred abruptly canceled their press conference. Tiger wanted to put them out of commission, one way or another. It was early in the scandal, and perhaps Tiger thought most of his problems would go away if Rachel went away. So, she made out much better than the rest of the bimbos. BUT, C'MON!!... I doubt that she got 10 million, or "even" 5 or 2 million.

Woods could have gone to Vegas, gotten laid every day for a year and spent $2000 x 365 = $730,000 for top notch service.

Instead, he spends $10M and that's just one of them.

Tiger's worst businessman.

I'll be honest when I say that I couldn't be any more disgusted. I'll work the rest of my life and probably never come close to ten million dollars and this piece of garbage was just paid off for blackmail. I don't understand it whatsoever. I guess I can take some solice in the idea that some of the other women like that one freak who made a website never saw a penny. Even the waffle house girl didn't get a dime. Guess Rachel is being paid for her ability to see the writing on the wall. To think she wasn't even the first to the party.
