Tiger Woods' most famous mistress, Rachel Uchitel, is worried for the golfer following his rollover accident.
"Obviously hearing the news has shaken me up as it's probably shaken everybody up to see that. Hearing [agent Mark Steinberg] say that he's in surgery for his legs is something that really worries me and when you hear a comment like that you know it's true," she told the New York Post.
"He's an athlete and his legs are essential to his sport and to him being who he is and he's already had trouble with his body up until this point," she continued. "He didn't need any more injuries."
Tiger was taken to surgery following his single-car accident in Los Angeles on Feb. 23.. His agent said the five-time Masters champion suffered multiple injuries to his legs. The "jaws of life" had to be used to get him out of the car, a press release from the Los Angeles County Sheriff said. His injuries are reportedly "severe but not life-threatening," according to officials.
The golf legend famously crashed his car in 2009 after his then-wife, Elin Nordegren, found out that he'd been having a long-running affair with Rachel, a former nightclub hostess in New York City and Las Vegas. For more than 10 years, Rachel kept mum about her romance with Tiger, but she recently spoke about the relationship for an HBO documentary.
"I have stayed quiet about this story, but at this point, I have nothing left to lose. My name hasn't lost the stigma at all," she said in the documentary.
The documentary also touched on Tiger's DUI arrest in 2017. In that instance, it was determined he was under the influence of painkillers and sleep medications. It's currently unclear what caused the Feb. 23 accident.
Tiger has been recovering from a fifth back surgery and, just two day before the auto accident, he spoke of returning to golf for the Masters tournament in April.
