Why Rachel Uchitel Ran From Rehab -- Dad's Death

7/29/2010 7:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The issue that drove Rachel Uchitel to run away from rehab had nothing to do with Tiger Woods -- instead it was an intense talk about her father's death.

Sources closely connected to the production of "Celebrity Rehab" tell TMZ that Rachel's breaking point came during a recent one-on-one therapy session where the main topic was her dad.

We're told Rachel's father died of a cocaine overdose in his 40s, and Rachel was 15 at the time.

Rachel split from Dr. Drew Pinsky's facility in Pasadena and stayed at a Beverly Hills hotel for one night -- and, according to our sources, she only came back the next day because her 'Rehab' castmates called and urged her to rejoin them.

no, we should all pray for her. she is in rehab for the dumbest reason. she's "addicted" to falling inlove? please. she's insecure and wants attention. she's known for being one of tiger woods's whore and for whatever reason, she wants people to remember her. she's an idiot and people need to stop giving her attention she doesn't deserve.

Laura I understand and feel the same as you...but i guess one can only pray for a patheic lost soul i guess! I don't want to see this women get any attention because she is a whore....and i am frustrated to see that she is getting the attention for being Tiger's main squeeze. Maybe he will end up marrying her after the divorce to Elin...how crazy would that be. I wonder as well if he still talks with her?? We should pray for his ass too....and pray for Elin to have strength after all this BS. Heck let's just pray for everyone!!! :)

Let's see if I have this right : A woman who is "famous" for sleeping with married men, and basically being a homewrecker, has daddy issues ? Shocking...
On the flip side, let this be a lesson to men everywhere : Show your daughter that you love and support her, YOUR relationship with her plays a BIG part in shaping her future relationships with men. Be an absent dad (either physically or emotionally), and you end up with a girl with low self esteem who feels like she isn't worthy. She then grows up to be a WOMAN with low self esteem who ends up settling for FAR LESS than she deserves. Or she ends up seeing sex as the only thing she has to offer a man, maybe ending up as nothing more than a professional mistress...
Let me end this by saying that daddy issues IN NO WAY excuse sleeping with married men, PERIOD. But, maybe women like THESE will make these cheating guys more aware that in addition to destroying their family, they are setting a HORRIBLE example to their daughters as far as what a woman deserves in a relationship...
With that being said, I'd STILL like to see her obituary one day REAL soon...

It probbably brought her because they offered her more money. Typical for money whore. Tiger paid her off 10 millions to keep quiet. I think that her dad needed the rehab more than she. I don't know Dr. Drew's Rehab is for real or fake show.

Wasn't she about to marry some dude that got killed at the WTC during 9/11 too?? Damn, didn't know about the daddy thing. Well, at least she found a positive way to cope with all that trauma. Become a high-priced ho and bang as many married male celebrities as she possible can!

@ 26: Nah her dad died when she was 15, hopefully she wasn't ALREADY an adultress prostitute... So I guess he was lucky not to have to see her turn into a skank LOL
