The voicemail message allegedly left by Tiger Woods for his alleged mistress Jaimee Grubbs has finally been revealed. Yesterday, Grubbs came forward claiming she had startling proof that she had been Tiger’s jumpoff and was gonna release a voicemail, she claimed was Tiger asking her to change her voice recording cause his wife was on to them.
Well…she kept her word. In the audio released by US Weekly, you can hear someone who sounds alot like Tiger asking Jaimee to remove her name from her own voicemail, because his wife “went throught my phone and may be calling you.” *sigh*
Voicemail audio + another statement from Tiger below:
Audio ~ Tiger Woods on Jaime Grubbs Voicemail (Mobile)
Hey, it’s Tiger. I need you to do me a huge favor. Can you please…take your name off your phone? My wife went through my phone and may be calling you. So if you can, please take your name off that. And…(unintelligible) just have it as a number on the voicemail. Just have it as your telephone number Ok? You got to do this for me. Huge. Quickly. OK? Bye.
What do you think? Is that Tiger in the message? Whoever it is needs some lessons on cheating. As I said on my Twitter yesterday:
Listen up dumbos…texts, email & voicemails should remain vague & non-incriminating when cheating on your spouse. Dec 1st
I’m not condoning cheating but if you’re gonna do dumb sh*t at least be smart about it… Dec 1st
Tiger Woods has also released another statement regarding the media spectacle surrounding his one-car accident during Thanksgiving weekend. Although he didn’t directly address the accusations that he’s cheated/cheating on his wife or the rumors of his prescription drug use, Tiger attempted to at least reach out to his fans by at least accepting responsibility that his actions have disgraced his family.
I have let my family down and I regret those transgressions with all of my heart. I have not been true to my values and the behavior my family deserves. I am not without faults and I am far short of perfect. I am dealing with my behavior and personal failings behind closed doors with my family. Those feelings should be shared by us alone.
Although I am a well-known person and have made my career as a professional athlete, I have been dismayed to realize the full extent of what tabloid scrutiny really means. For the last week, my family and I have been hounded to expose intimate details of our personal lives. The stories in particular that physical violence played any role in the car accident were utterly false and malicious. Elin has always done more to support our family and shown more grace than anyone could possibly expect.
But no matter how intense curiosity about public figures can be, there is an important and deep principle at stake which is the right to some simple, human measure of privacy. I realize there are some who don’t share my view on that. But for me, the virtue of privacy is one that must be protected in matters that are intimate and within one’s own family. Personal sins should not require press releases and problems within a family shouldn’t have to mean public confessions.
Whatever regrets I have about letting my family down have been shared with and felt by us alone. I have given this a lot of reflection and thought and I believe that there is a point at which I must stick to that principle even though it’s difficult.
I will strive to be a better person and the husband and father that my family deserves. For all of those who have supported me over the years, I offer my profound apology.
