**Updated** Did Tiger Woods Get Caught Cheating?

So pictured to the right is not the woman that Tiger Woods is allegedly having an affair with, IT'S HIS WIFE. I think I chose this picture of her to make the point that (alleged) affairs can happen to anyone but I digress...

It really baffles me sometimes why men insist on having affairs on their wives or girlfriends, instead of simply, breaking up (or not getting married in the first place) and doing what they want and need to do to make themselves happy.

Like do what you gotta do right!?

By now everyone has heard the news that Tiger Woods got into a car accident outside his Orlando home early Friday morning. At first the story, was that Tiger hit a fire hydrant and a tree pulling out of his driveway sober at 2:25am on Friday morning.

This story sounded suspect from the very beginning, so I waited to hear more knowing that could not possibly be the whole story.

These are some of the initial questions I had:

1. Where was Tiger going at 2:30am? At that hour it's likely illegal, immoral, or it's an airplane flight (which Tiger Woods the billionaire would likely have a limo or car service for). Or maybe he was tryna catch some Black Friday sales? Um...probably not.

2. How do you hit a fire hydrant and a tree pulling out of your driveway sober?

3. Does this crash have anything to do with the tabloid stories 24 hours prior, of his having an affair with the woman pictured below?

In her defense she is denying the affair and has hired famed Hollywood attorney Gloria Allred to represent her in a lawsuit against the tabloids for defamation.

When there were initial reports that his wife supposedly "freed" him from the vehicle by breaking the window with a golf club after hearing the crash from inside the house, I immediately began to think that she might be the reason he crashed in the first place. To me it made more sense that he crashed while she was hitting the car with the aforementioned golf club, not that she hit the windshield with the golf club to get him out of the Escalade.

Maybe I'm totally wrong about all of this and Tiger really is just a bad driver.

You have to admit though that it looks even more suspicious that he has now turned away the cops coming to his house to question him and his wife about the incident not once but twice in the past 24 hours.

There are two things about this story that fascinate me.

First, his wife is gorgeous. If a man will cheat on her I can't help but become the cynical about men and relationships and I hate cynical people!

Second, how will the media treat the story of a beloved black billionaire athlete and his Swedish wife (allegedly) having domestic issues?


Update: Tiger's statement on the incident. He is going with the version of the story where his wife SAVED him.

As you all know, I had a single-car accident earlier this week, and sustained some injuries. I have some cuts, bruising and right now I’m pretty sore. This situation is my fault, and it’s obviously embarrassing to my family and me. I’m human and I’m not perfect. I will certainly make sure this doesn’t happen again.

This is a private matter and I want to keep it that way. Although I understand there is curiosity, the many false, unfounded and malicious rumors that are currently circulating about my family and me are irresponsible.

The only person responsible for the accident is me. My wife, Elin, acted courageously when she saw I was hurt and in trouble. She was the first person to help me. Any other assertion is absolutely false.

This incident has been stressful and very difficult for Elin, our family and me. I appreciate all the concern and well wishes that we have received. But, I would also ask for some understanding that my family and I deserve some privacy no matter how intrusive some people can be.
