Woods' wife accuses mom-in-law of "turning blind eye" to son's 'affairs'

Posted By: Staff

London, Dec 5 (ANI): Professional golfer Tiger Woods' furious wife Elin Nordegren has accused her mother-in-law of "turning a blind eye" to her son's alleged affairs.

There were reports of the two women already having tensions over the champion golfer's extra-marital affairs, and now Nordegren, 29, has accused Woods' mum Kultida, 65, of not acknowledging her son's alleged liaisons with Rachel Uchitel.

Kultida is said to have accompanied Woods, 33, on his trip to Melbourne for the Australian Masters last month, and that Uchitel, a nightclub hostess, had joined him in his hotel room.

According to sources, Woods had even joked to friends about how his mother had been out "hammering his credit card" in expensive restaurants, while he is said to have been entertaining Uchitel in his suite on the 35th floor of the Crown Towers hotel.

"Elin is beside herself with anger, because she can't believe that her mother-in-law did not know that Tiger was running round with this other woman when it was right under her nose," the Scotsman quoted a source as telling the Melbourne Herald-Sun.

Another source told the newspaper it was a well-known fact on the golf circuit that Nordegren and her mother-in-law did not see eye to eye.

"Tida is a formidable woman and frightens the wits out of everyone, including her son. Elin is almost equally feisty. Tiger is often piggy-in-the-middle," the source added. (ANI)
