Former VH1 reality star Jaimee Grubbs has apologized for revealing what she claims are intimate details of her alleged relationship with golf star Tiger Woods.
In the new issue of Us Weekly, Grubbs, 24, claims she embarked upon a 31-month affair with the sports superstar beginning in 2007 — a relationship that she alleges included 20 sexual encounters. And she tells the magazine she is sorry the golfer’s wife of five years, Elin Nordegren, will see her story.
“I do apologize that [his wife is] going to have to read this,” she tells the magazine. “I never said ‘I love you’ [to Tiger] because I never wanted to scare him off. But I was getting there. I hope he can forgive me for doing this and I know he probably can’t.”
Grubbs is already familiar with the cheating game, having been dumped on VH1’s “Tool Academy” after her boyfriend, Shawn, revealed he was still seeing what she thought was his ex-girlfriend. But despite her reality TV past, Grubbs said she was hurt and surprised by recent allegations Woods was involved with other women, including New Yorker Rachel Uchitel.
While the National Enquirer has suggested Woods went as far as to meet up with Uchitel in Australia recently, Uchitel maintains she never had an affair with the golfer and they were both down under at the same time by coincidence.
“He always told me that he didn’t have time for other girls and I believed it,” Grubbs tells Us. “To see that he was inviting another girl to Australia, it hurts. I have feelings for him and think maybe he cared about me. But I’m still bitter about it.”
As for her own alleged relationship with the golfer, who on Wednesday, posted a statement on his Web site admitting to “personal sins,” but not elaborating on details of what his “transgressions” were, Grubbs claims it began when she met him in Las Vegas in 2007.
“He wasn’t wearing a wedding ring,” Grubbs tells Us of their meeting, which she said was in a club.
Grubbs claims the two did not become intimate until she was back in her then home base of San Diego, where he coincidentally ended up, a day later.
“He asked me to meet him on the second floor of the W Hotel. We went to his room and had dinner. I asked him a bunch of questions, and he told me his whole life was an interview. Then we went to another room to watch a movie, but we never got around to it. He just grabbed me and kissed me and we started taking our clothes off and had sex,” she says. “Afterward, he was like, ‘You should probably go.’ He told me that he has a hard time sleeping in the same bed with somebody. He gave me the impression that he and his wife had separate rooms.”
But Grubbs isn’t the only woman to come to light this week with accusations of an alleged affair with Woods.
On Wednesday, Life & Style ran their cover story claiming Kalika Moquin, a marketing manager at a Las Vegas club, also allegedly “hooked up” with the golfer several times.
“It’s not appropriate for me to comment one way or the other,” Monquin tells the mag. “At this time, I’m choosing to focus on my job.”
A source close to Moquin claimed to Access on Wednesday that the woman was indeed having an affair with Woods.
The source claimed that Moquin and Woods met in Vegas years ago and last saw each other in October of this year. According to the source, “Kalika can’t speak and won’t speak now.”
