Yankees legend Derek Jeter has been linked to Tiger Woods’ marital infidelity, a report stated

Tiger Woods’ former lover is talking. And what she says makes people listen.

The New York Times reports that Rachel Uchitel signed a nondisclosure agreement in 2009 after her extramarital affair with Woods was leaked. However, 10 years later she broke the agreement and now, under increasing financial pressure, she says she is ready to speak for herself.

In its coverage of the Uchitel legal saga, the New York Times dropped this nugget:

Ms. Uchitel and Mr. Woods met in 2008 through a mutual friend, Derek Jeter, and began their relationship a year later. “I knew he was cheating on his wife when I first met him, long before we got together,” she said. But Ms. Uchitel believed she had a special status. Mr. Woods flew her around the world to tournaments and events and told her he was investing in a restaurant she dreamed of opening.

That Jeter, the legend of the New York Yankees, has a relationship with Woods is no surprise. They were two of the most marketable athletes signed to Nike in the late 1990s and early 2000s, and each was a proven winner. Jeter would end his 20-year MLB career with five World Series titles and induction into the National Baseball Hall of Fame, while Woods won 15 major championships.

Woods’ relationship with Uchitel went public in 2009 after the golfer drove his SUV into a fire hydrant outside his Florida home. Less than a year later, he was divorced from Elin Nordegren, the mother of his two children. Since then, Wood’s career has been plagued by back problems that require multiple surgeries that paved the way for his dramatic 2019 Masters victory.

Woods’ career is on hold, however, and could be over after suffering debilitating leg injuries in a single car accident outside of Los Angeles in February.
