Golfer Tiger Woods has finally got the Brit tabloids off his back, just in time to prevent them from publishing photos of him nude or having sex — presuming they exist of course. Meanwhile another mistress and lurid tales of three-way sex have surfaced.
Woods won an injunction in a UK court in his effort to curb any new revelations about his alleged affairs, which include hundreds of racy text messages, voicemails and emails.
The British law firm Schillings went to bat for Woods’ behalf on Thursday (Dec. 10) at the High Court in London, partner Simon Smith told Reuters. The firm specializes in defending the reputations of celebrities. In Britain libel laws are much stricter than the United States.
The law firm was quick to point out that the injunction should not be taken to mean “that any such photographs exist.” Playgirl magazine claims it has photos of Woods’, ahem… member, and will publish them if they can confirm it is him.
The order comes as one of his alleged mistresses Jamie Jungers appeared on NBC’s Today Show this morning (Dec. 11) to discuss her relationship with the world’s No. 1 golfer.
A Hollywood madam also claims that Woods spent up to $60,000 on sex with women, including, Loredana Jolie, a blonde Playboy model.
The Hollywood madam Michelle Braun says Woods spent the money on expensive prostitutes, preferring “three-ways.” She said he was “rarely with just one girl,” according to the New York Daily News. She claimed Jolie was one of his favorites.
But Braun’s credibility is under attack. Jungers said claims that Braun made about her working as an escort are totally false. Jungers claims Woods never gave her any money or paid for liposuction of her hips. But who knows if she is on Woods’ payroll? The golfer has allegedly paid some of the mistresses for their silence, and perhaps support.
The celebrity sportsman, who has two young children with wife Elin Nordegren has admitted “transgressions” in a statement, but has not elaborated.
The court order, a copy of which was published by the celebrity website TMZ.com, prohibits the publication in the United Kingdom of “any photographs, footage or images taken or obtained of the Claimant naked or any naked parts of the Claimant’s body or of him involved in any sexual activity.”
U.S. and British tabloid newspapers and media Web sites have been aggressively competing for any scrap of information or photo about the scandal, and reportedly have paid tens of thousands of dollars for scoops.
The High Court order applies to UK territory and is addressed to “person or persons unknown who have taken or obtained or offered for publication” photographs or images or video footage of Woods nude or having sex.
It adds that “in the event that these photographs do exist, and it is not admitted, any such images may have been fabricated, altered, manipulated and or changed to create the false appearance and impression that they are nude photographs of our client.”
