Tiger Woods’ British ‘Lover’ Emma Rotherham: In Pictures
TIGER Woods’s “secret British lover” is, allegedly, Emma Rotherham. Ever since the rumours of a British shag hit the media, we’ve been waiting for the denials. Katie Price. Cherie Blair. Sarah Ferguson. Edwina Currie. Amy Winehouse. Not one of them denied shagging Tiger Woods.
But now we learn that the secret lover is Emma Rotherham, a “curvy” 42-year-old blonde British mum of two who Tiger paid $500,000 to not shag ‘n’ tell. Emma is the 19th hole linked to Woods. They met at Orlando’s Blue Martini club. Emmas was wearing “a tight black jump suit”.
Says a source:
“Emma was his most recent mistress. They had a very, very passionate relationship and she has dozens of text messages and emails from him. Some were even sent while Tiger was trying to patch things up with his wife Elin. If those came out they’d bury him. He absolutely adored Emma and loved the sex. So did she.
“And as she lived near his Florida home in Isleworth she was always on call. They were at it all the time. Emma said Tiger was a great lover. But he never wore a condom, and she didn’t take any precautions.”
What about the money – what’s that if not a precaution?
“The 500 grand has now bought Emma’s silence and she has signed a confidentiality agreement. She’s very happy and walking round with a big grin on her face – like the cat that got the cream.”
But now the secret is out, does she get to keep the cash and, maybe, earn a bit more for her family by selling her story? We already have some facts. Woods:
ROMPED with Emma at least once a week on his office sofa.
PLEADED for saucy photos of her in stockings and suspenders.
DEMANDED she wear a wedding ring to stop men hitting on her.
REVELLED in drug-fuelled sex sessions at a top golf tournament.
But we won’t get to hear about any of it, such is the secrecy and confidentiality clause:
“Nothing major happened, just some kissing and fondling. But by the third meeting she and Tiger had sex on the couch. She said it was ‘awesome’.”
But we won’t hear anything of it:
“The dates were always very early in the morning – before Tiger started his golf practice. Emma would meet him at the office and they’d get straight down to it. Sometimes she’d complain that she wanted more from the relationship, but she wasn’t interested in becoming the next Mrs Tiger Woods.”
You’d imagine there’d be no little interest in hearing about Tiger and Emma. But she signed the deal, so we won’t hear anything…
“They both took the relaxant Ambien before making love. Emma was a bit hesitant but Tiger persuaded her and she said the sex was mind-blowing. They were at it all night. She was surprised he had the energy left to play a round of golf. But he went on to win the tournament!”
Breakfast, dinner and midnight feat of champions.
“Tiger was so smitten he became very controlling and hated the thought of other men chatting Emma up. He suggested she wear a wedding ring to put them off.
“And he’d text to demand a photo of what outfit she was wearing for a night out. If he thought it was too revealing he’d get jealous and text back, ‘You can’t wear that.’ Emma ignored him but it showed he thought he was in a boyfriend-girlfriend relationship.”
Then the gold club hit the fan and Emma was whisked away to the Ritz-Carlton hotel, Naples, for two nights and handed £28,000 pocket money.
Emma then moved to a rented villa on the Bay Hill golf resort near Woods’ home and was in constant contact with him.
Our insider said: “Emma was living like someone in witness protection, always looking over her shoulder, and being checked on by two security guys. But Tiger assured her he would sort her out.”
Later, Rotherham was handed the half a million dollars.
The agent tried to get Emma to hand over her mobile phone holding the texts from Woods but she refused.
And so the Tiger Woods story moves on, taking in a British lover in a kind of Ride-Her Cup. But you won’t read about it becaue it is secret and contracts have been signed and hush money paid, allegedly…
