Still misadventures for Tiger Woods, but off the golf course. The American champion, often made headlines for his love affairs, has decided to sue his ex-lover, Rachel Uchitel, accused of having violated his NDA (the non-disclosure agreement) from $8 million, reports tennisworldusa.org.
Uchitel was bound to a confidentiality pact that obliged her, for a fee, not to disclose details about the relationship with Tiger Woods: in the details revealed to the New York Times it was revealed that the agreement was more than 30 pages long and it was signed in 2009, after the relationship came out.
Rachel Uchitel obtained $5 million and an additional $1 million for the three years following the signing of the agreement in exchange for her silence. Despite this, about two years ago, in 2019, she broke the silence and agreed to talk about his relationship with Woods for the HBO documentary “Tiger”, which was launched in this 2021 and which sparked the immediate reaction of the lawyers of Woods.
Rachel Uchitel has always complained of the negative repercussions for her image of her relating to the agreement with Woods, who had several relationships but which she had seen only theirs become a ‘stone of scandal.’
“I’m not an idiot, I’m not a prostitute,” Uchitel told the New York Times. “I was and am a very smart girl and that’s why I traded $8 million, because I knew it would affect my life.”
Despite this, she could not resist the temptation to tell, “For once I wanted to be the one to tell my story,” she explained, but now the deal could cost her dearly: a good part of the $8 million could in fact have to be returned, if the judges agreed that the confidentiality, as seems evident from what has been declared to the New York Times, has been violated. Back in the eye of the storm, Woods could console himself by recovering money for his already thriving coffers, winning the lawsuit that has already been filed.
