Tiger Woods Scandal

Key Figure DIES

9/5/2011 9:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0902_tiger_woods_nowthen_2
Tiger Woods wasn't the only living creature whose life was ruined on that fateful night in November 2009 -- the tree he crashed his Escalade into has been murdered ... TMZ has learned.

Sources close to the tree tell us ... new neighbors moved in recently and began remodeling -- and one of the first things they did was tear down the infamous oak tree.

The construction company that did the job tells us the tree was in bad shape ever since the crash -- and even though the new neighbors knew full well the tree's place in history, they decided to get rid of it anyway.

And don't think the tree will be showing up on eBay anytime soon -- it was NOT saved, it was simply trashed.

We're told a new tree will be planted soon, but in the meantime ... there's a Porta-Potty in its place.

Symbolic of where Tiger's career has gone, don't you think?

This is a conspiracy. The tree was murdered so it could not testify that it saw Tiger's wife hit Tiger in the head with a golf club (the same club that Tiger's wife used to hit the closet that needed to be repaired in Tiger's house) and that Tiger drove into the tree after first driving into a bush and then a hedge before swerving to hit the innocent tree on the other side of the road while Tiger was drunk on alcohol and high on anti-anxiety drugs, anti-depressants, painkillers, ampetamines, antipsychotic medicines, human growth hormone, steroids, coke and grass. The poor tree should have agreed to keep its mouth shut or have been put in a witness protection program and started a new life under another name in Idaho.

Have these people ever heard of eBay? They could have paid for the renovations (maybe even the house) with the proceeds.

Hold tight guys....before the day is over the sickos that make up the entertainment world will give you a good news story....a few DUI's, domestic abuse, couples getting divorce who we thought had a solid marriage, lots of fighting outside the clubs, etc. lol.

"Sources close to the tree tell us", who are these sources? The grass? The tree shrubs?

They could cut that tree in pieces and cash in a few million bucks. If they lived next door to Tiger, they most likely don't need it.

I do believe this was a TMZ shot (get it?) at humor on a slow Labor Day. Epic Fail!
Not to worry...TMZ will post a stupid Lindsay Lohan story at some point to get their needed hits. I do admit that TMZ has been "failing" for a long time.
