Tiger Woods had a special bond with his former mistress, Rachel Uchitel – she helped him fall asleep.
In his very first TV interview, Uchitel told producers about a highly anticipated new documentary from HBO, titled Tiger, all about his affair with the golf ace, which sparked a reputation collapse and the end of his marriage to the Swedish model. Elin Nordegren.
According to sources at DailyMail.com, who got a preview of the film, Uchitel remembers meeting Woods at a New York golf club and becoming his lover and “energizer,” while trying to convince Nordegren that she and the sportsman were just good friends.
Uchitel also recounts the first time she and Woods had sex after taking her to Orlando, Florida, and reveals that she quickly became more than just a mistress: “He was having trouble sleeping. and should take Ambien, ”she says. “I would sit next to him for hours as he fell asleep next to me and when he got up he allowed himself to be a little child. It sounds a bit strange. He would eat cereal and he would watch his cartoons and he was like a fountain, he wanted to talk, talk and talk.
“He told me a lot about his childhood, about his father and he was tired of trying to hide who he was but he was so afraid that the real tiger would not be up to the tiger that everyone thought he was. ‘he is. I once asked him why he didn’t show up at the house with Elin. He said, “She doesn’t ask questions like you, she’s not like you.” I thought he wanted someone to check in. I asked him a million questions and he wanted to give every detail he hadn’t been able to say in years or ever. ”
He also took his mistress to the 2009 Australian Open, telling her, “I can’t win if you’re not here”. He also told Uchitel that she was the only woman he had ever loved, she claims.
The couple’s affair reportedly fell apart when Elin called Rachel from Tiger’s phone and she replied “Hey baby! ”
According to Uchitel, Tiger’s wife kicked him out of the house with a golf club and in his haste to get away, Woods sadly crashed his sport utility vehicle into a tree.
