Tiger Woods

Cheating Scandal House

Gets Massive Facelift

11/3/2012 3:50 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

1102-tiger-woods-construction-tmzIt's been 3 years since Tiger Woods' ex-wife Elin Nordegren smashed his SUV with a golf club -- over a massive cheating scandal that derailed his life -- and now, Tiger's finally starting to rebuild ... starting with the Florida mansion where it all went downhill.

Construction is already underway at Tiger's Windermere home -- the same home where Tiger famously crashed his SUV following a blowout argument with Elin over his endless philandering ... and Elin attacked the car with a freakin' golf club.

1102-tiger-woods-thanksgiving-tmzNeighborhood sources tell TMZ, Tiger's uprooting the pool and replacing it with a brand new outdoor swimming facility. We're told he's also adding a new deck in the backyard, as well as a new spa.

Tiger has already obtained the requisite legal docs to commence building.

It's unclear if Tiger's renovating the home for his own personal enjoyment, or whether he plans to sell the place.

Not like the home has bad memories or anything.

Brittany Kerr

Parties w/ Tiger's Mistress

(No Homes Wrecked)

EXCLUSIVE

Brittany Kerr partying with Jamie Grubbs
Brittany Kerr's friends may have been rubbing off on her ... 'cause before she hooked up with a very married country singer, Kerr was partying with a girl who knows a thing or two about home-wreckin' ... Tiger Woods mistress Jamie Grubbs.

TMZ obtained pics of the former "American Idol" contestant ragin' with Grubbs at a bar earlier this year -- and sources connected to the ladies tell us they've been friends for a while.

We're told the two initially met while working together at an L.A. bar ... and hit it off.

Of course, Grubbs shot to fame when it was revealed she was one of a bazillion women Tiger was nailin' behind his wife's back.

These days, Grubbs is still screwing around with a married man -- her brand new husband.

Tiger Banner Pilot:

I Was Grounded

by the FBI

6/23/2010 7:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The pilot who flew the "Tiger: Are You My Daddy?" banner over the US Open golf tournament last weekend was supposed to make a second run -- but dude claims the FBI shut down the flight. 

0622_fbi_tiger_banner_EX_getty
TMZ obtained the post-flight report filed with the sky banner company, in which the pilot states that while en route to fly sign #2 -- which read, "Happy Father's Day Tiger LOL" -- he was contacted by a tower controller with a message from the FBI.

According to the pilot, the FBI had "strongly urged" him to "depart the area" over the golf course as soon as possible ... and, of course, the pilot obliged.

We spoke to the owner of the company hired to fly the planes – who told us he is looking into the incident and has no idea why the FBI would intervene on such a matter.  We also spoke to the FAA – who tells us the FBI would only intervene if “criminal activity” was suspected. 

As for the FBI, we called them for comment as well -- but we're still waiting to hear back. Apparently they have bigger things to worry about.

Tiger Woods Banners

Fly the Skies ... Again!

6/20/2010 12:25 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Those pesky banners that taunted Tiger Woods at the Masters are set to return today as he tries to win the U.S. Open this afternoon.

0620_tiger_getty_EX_02
The banners -- which had such delightful phrases as "TIGER DID YOU MEAN BOOTYISM" and "SEX ADDICT? YA, RIGHT. SURE. ME TOO!" -- were commissioned by an anonymous person back in April.

Ted from NationalSkyAds.com says he has been hired to fly two banners over Pebble Beach today. The first will say, "TIGER: ARE YOU MY DADDY?" and the second will read, "HAPPY FATHER'S DAY TIGER LOL."

Tiger tees off around 2:05 PM PT. He could also tee off at around 2:10 if the banners fly over.

Tiger's Swing Coach

Sex Addict, Yes

Doping, No

5/16/2010 4:36 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0516-tiger-woods-getty-reg-creditTiger Woods' former swing coach says Woods underwent treatment for sex addiction during his five-month absence from golf, this according to an interview with The Golf Channel.

Hank Haney, who split from Woods earlier this week, also said he saw no signs that Woods ever took performance-enhancing drugs -- an allegation that has hounded Tiger over the years.

Haney said, "The only thing that I knew about was his issue with the sex addiction."

The full interview airs tonight at 6:00 PM.

Tiger Woods' Text Messages

So Graphic

3/18/2010 12:08 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Joslyn James pulled the trigger on her website, splashing more than 100 text messages Tiger Woods allegedly sent her -- and the messages hit topics that include slapping, choking, three-ways and golden showers.

text-messages-1
The site, sextingjoslynjames.com, includes texts that say:

- OK, I would like to have a threesome with you and another girl you trust.
- I want to treat you rough, throw you around, spank and slap you
- Have you ever had a golden shower done to you? ... just morbid curiosity.
- You are my f**king whore. Hold you down while I choke you

It's interesting ... Joslyn has omitted the messages she sent to Tiger, so we don't know what she said that may have egged him on.

And then there's this, on September 8, 2009: "Having a few issues at home. Might be a little later before I see you tonight." That text is followed by "parent hood melt down :)"

And the last message is dated October 4, 2009. It says, "Don't f**king talk to me. You almost just ruined my whole life. If my agent and these guys would have seen you there, F**k."

For the record, Tiger references golfing in three different tournaments in the texts: The Buick Open, Bridgestone Invitational, and BMW Championship -- he won all three.

Porn Star Mistress

Wigs Out Over

Tiger's Apology

2/19/2010 3:10 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Tiger Woods' alleged mistress/definite porn star boo-hooed at a news conference following Tiger's mea culpa ... because she actually believes he should have publicly apologized to her by name today as well.

Tiger Woods
Veronica Siwik-Daniels aka Joslyn James -- star of "MILF Worship 4" and "Top Heavy 4" -- was accompanied by her attorney, Gloria Allred, claiming she "fell in love with Tiger" and that he said he was in love with her as well.

Gloria said Tiger made her quit the porn business because he's "very jealous and could not stand the thought of her being with another man."

And there's this ... Gloria said, "Tiger led her to believe she was the only woman in his life ... other than his wife."

Tiger Mistress Claims Wacky Balls Hurt Women

2/3/2010 4:45 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

One of Tiger Woods' alleged mistresses is trying to grab a golf businessman by the balls, claiming his little round guys are encouraging violence towards women ... the perfect case for power-attorney Gloria Allred.

Tales of the Tiger Woods

The woman at the center of the situation is Joslyn James -- a former porn star who claims she had an affair with Woods.

James is raising hell over a set of novelty golf balls that each prominently feature a cartoon face of one of Tiger's alleged mistresses (somehow they all fit in one box).

Obviously the balls were intended to be played with. And James -- whose smiling face is featured on one of the balls -- is concerned the product sends the wrong message.

Allred -- the ultimate defender of women's rights -- is fired up and will hold a news conference around 3pm EST today. You know we'll be there -- livestream ready to go.

Alleged Tiger Mistress

Popped for Rear-Ending

12/7/2009 2:07 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

It's hard to tell one alleged Tiger Woods mistress apart from the next -- so we'll just call Mindy Lawton "the one with the felony DWI arrest."

Lawton -- who told News of the World all sorts of alleged sex details about Woods -- was involved in a car accident last January. According to the police report, she rear-ended one car, which then smacked into another.

She was charged with one felony and one misdemeanor -- DWI causing serious bodily injury and DWI causing damage to property ($5,000 to one car, $4,000 to the other).

Law enforcement sources tell us they gave Lawton a blood test and she had a BAC of .187 -- easily twice the legal limit.

Lawton is due in court early next year.
