As the mystery of Tiger Woods’ car crash deepens, Rachel Uchitel, the woman alleged to be at the center of the bizarre incident, is issuing repeated denials that she’s ever had any connection with the golf champ.
She spoke to E! News to set the record straight, “I did not have any involvement with [Tiger Woods].
“Whatever was written in the [National] Enquirer was not said by me, it was said by two people that claimed they were friends of mine but they’re not,” the 34-year-old said.
Tiger drove his car into a tree and fire hydrant outside of his Windermere, Fla. home on Friday morning — a mishap that is rumored to have been caused by a fight with his 29-year-old wife Elin Nordegren.
“I am overwhelmed, so I hired [celebrity attorney] Gloria Allred to handle the situation,” explained Uchitel of the controversy. “I don’t want to get this much attention and I wish everybody would leave me alone.”
Tiger, 33, has issued his own denial about “the many false, unfounded and malicious rumors” regarding the health of his marriage.
Rachel, who is currently in Los Angeles discussing her situation with Allred, says she’s only met the PGA title-holder twice, once with a mutual friend and another time at a club.
The New York-based beauty dabbled in TV, working as a producer for Bloomberg before taking a job at Tao in Las Vegas, working with the club’s VIP clients.
