Golf star Tiger Woods is reportedly suing ex-lover Rachel Uchitel. She is said to have broken a confidentiality agreement.

Tiger Woods, 45, is reportedly suing his ex-lover Rachel Uchitel, 46. She is said to have broken a confidentiality agreement by speaking publicly about her affair with the golf star. According to US media reports, it is about 8 million dollars (about 6.8 million euros).

In an interview with the “New York Times” Uchitel spoke about her affair with the then married Woods and the impact on her life. She said she allegedly signed a nondisclosure agreement in 2009 prohibiting her from talking about the affair. In return, she was supposed to receive a payment of 5 million US dollars, and in addition the promise of one million dollars a year for the three following years, as the “New York Times” further reports.

Broken agreement?

However, Uchitel reportedly broke the deal in 2019 after agreeing to unpack in an HBO documentary called “Tiger,” which was released earlier this year. “I wanted to be the one to tell my story,” she told the newspaper about her reasons. The ex-nightclub owner, who is said to have filed for personal bankruptcy, said that after the broadcast, a lawyer from Woods took action for violating the confidentiality agreement.

Tiger Woods is one of the most successful golfers in sports history and one of the highest-paid athletes in the world. At the end of the 00s / beginning of the 10s, he first got into a private and subsequently also into a sporting crisis. He later managed to return to the top of the golf course.
