Picture: BINGO RIMEL THE START: Rachel Uchitel UNDER FIRE: Tiger Woods has not been seen in public since his philandering ways were exposed following a car crash outside his home I thought Imeant something to him, but all he cared about was lust. He is a selfish, heartless man all while his wife Elin was pregnant. Tiger just used me as his sex toy. I thought I meant something to him, but all he cared about was lust. He is a selfish, heartless man, Lawton says. Woods used his vast network of business contacts and golf links for help arranging his affairs. His good friend Byron Bell, an old Stanford University buddy who heads Tiger Woods Design, flew with New York nightclub hostess Rachel Uchitel to Australia where she reportedly met Woods during the Australian Masters. Woods was supposed to be best man at Bells wedding this weekend but has reportedly backed out due to the fallout from the exposure of his affairs. On October 15, Woods checked into Californias Island Hotel under the name Mr and Mrs Bell. He was there to meet 24-year-old Jaimee Grubbs, another of his women. An executive at that hotels parent company, the Irvine Company, is an executive for Woods charity, the Tiger Woods Foundation. Eight weeks before his November 27 car crash, Woods invited one of his paramours New Yorker Rachel Uchitel to meet him at Arnold Palmers resort in Orlando. They stayed at the plush Bay Hill Club, dining on salmon and white wine before hitting the sack, Star Magazine reported. Although Woods reportedly checked the room for hidden cameras when he arrived that day, he appears to have taken few other steps to conceal his liaisons. He exchanged regular text messages with his mistresses, and is reported to have spoken with Uchitel in the days following his car crash. His philandering was an open secret and his wife even confronted him over his reputation before their 2004 wedding. Elin had talked to other golfers and their wives about Tigers wild parties, a friend told People magazine. When she asked Tiger about it, he said he would stop doing it and she believed him, but he never did. In the US, commentators are talking about Woods sex addiction and how to cure it. Less prominent in the debate has been his prescription drug abuse. He is reported to have used sedative Ambien to enhance his sexual experience. The reason he refused to talk to police about the November 27 car crash that opened this Pandoras box finally became clear. According to official records, police believed he had been under the influence of prescription drugs or alcohol. Woods, who had been prescribed the painkiller Vicodin and the sleep aid Ambien, had been drinking on the day of the crash, his wife told police at the scene. According to reports, he was admitted to hospital as a drug overdose patient. Despite this, his agents described the 2.30am crash in which he hit a tree and a fire hydrant as a minor accident. Now, with his reputation badly tarnished, his $US100 million a year in endorsements is under a cloud. He has sworn off golf for now and hasnt said when he will return.
