Report: Rachel Uchitel Returns Her Hush Money To Tiger Woods
If that's the case, Woods earned a bit of financial relief recently. TMZ is reporting that his former mistress, Rachel Uchitel, has returned a significant portion of the $10 million she was paid by Woods to keep quiet about their affair.
Sources tell TMZ ... several months ago Tiger's lawyer, Jay Lavely, contacted Gloria and said they were going after Rachel because they believed she violated the confidentiality agreement by allegedly speaking with TMZ and going on "Celebrity Rehab" to treat her "addiction to love" -- though she never talked specifically about Tiger on the show.
Despite the fact that she didn't mention Woods on the show, Uchitel's lawyer, Gloria Allred, convinced her that she would lose should Woods pursue the matter in court, and advised her now-former client to return a large portion of the settlement money.
Upset that her lawyer was not required to return any of the fees that she earned from the settlement, Uchitel has since fired Allred, and is preparing to sue her former lawyer for legal malpractice.
But all of that drama is irrelevant to Woods, who apparently now has a little more breathing room in his bank account than Fortune suggested last week.
