Tiger Woods Scandal

Key Figure DIES

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

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?

Poor tree, famous and then cut down to size, see Tiger's life is just like that tree. He reaped what he sowed, too. Life goes on. Next celebrity clown performance!

I really believe if they really cared about normal folk, they would have better karma.

After the disgusting display Eddie Cibrian son's made on Housewives last evening, coming out of the pool, whipping off his bathing suit and peeing on the lawn in front of ladies and children.......it's understandable why he does'nt want his ill behaved children viewed on television.
They are pigs and so is his ex-wife.
