What? No Sex Clause?

Filed under: General — Patterico @ 8:41 pm



How much is it worth to a man for his wife to “be a dutiful wife in showing up with him at social events and in public as if they were still the perfect couple, and sign a nondisclosure form that will prevent her from ever telling her story”?

Depends on the man. For Tiger Woods, that amount could be as much as $55 million for two years.

  1. Ah, the business side of love. Sounds fair to me.

  2. Mrs G and I discussed this tonight. Whether you stand by your man or not should not be a financial decision…unless. Unless we have established who she is and now are merely haggling. Very sad.

  3. Apparently love wasn’t much in the mix to begin with. For either of them.

    (*on Elin’s part, she’s still raging raw and ragged from the shock, so I cut her some slack).

  4. I would like to hope that the story is short on accuracy. An unfaithful spouse is responsible to make attempts at “just compensation”, but signing a contract on terms of employment as a public companion (and bed partner?) is something else. I hope the story is untrue.

    Never having been involved with the kind of riches that would invite a pre-nup, I can only speak from afar; but I would hate to think I would marry someone who didn’t trust me or that I didn’t trust them.

  5. He married a Swedish super-model…that doesn’t mean he was sleeping with one. Cut the guy some slack.

  6. I think the “super-model” angle is overworked. She began modelling in 2000, at the age of 20, but a year later was an au pair/nanny for some famous golfers kids, who introduced her to Tiger/Cheetah. Nice looking girl, but “Supermodel” not so much.

  7. Like I told my daughter, Tiger Woods is a slut. When and if I get cable again, I won’t be watching the PGA. I saw Jack play and I know Jack’s character. And Tiger doesn’t know Jack.

  8. Patterico – For $55 million there’s a no sex clause? WTF?

  9. Is it too early to suggest that the trophy wife and token mistress are just a good cover for what’s really going on, ifyouknowwhatImeanandIthinkthatyoudo?

    Not that there’s anything wrong with that.

  10. With each passing day this is less about Tiger the man and more about Tiger the brand. He’s damaged ‘Woods.’ A few checks should buy some silence and minimize exposure until it’s perceived that he’s damaging the game and not just himself and his business interests.

    It’s easy to respect the talent, but not the man.

    Perhaps he might just as well drop the facade and play through with the fresh image as golf’s bad boy from here on out.

  11. If the story is true, it’s little enough for the lack of taste he showed. I mean taste, not judgment. A cocktail waitress? And what a nasty little piece of work of a cocktail waitress.

  12. Unless we have established who she is and now are merely haggling

    and by paying, we have established what he is as well… a guy who has to pay for companionship.

  14. And what a nasty little piece of work of a cocktail waitress.

    Cocktail waitress, my arse – that was a professional big – game hunter, and she saw Tiger for the easy mark that he obviously is. Professional athletes never learn – this story is as old as the hills, with the only difference being the amount of $$ involved.

    In Sam Smith’s book “The Jordan Rules,” he goes into detail about some of the letters that he received on a daily basis. Almost every other month he got a large envelope with Robin Givens posing nude – that were sent by both her and her mother. He wised up quickly to that one, but she just went on to find another bank account to decimate (Mike Tyson).

  15. “Would I be interested in several million dollars for keeping my mouth shut? I’d be fascinated. I’d even sign a contract, provided it states what we’re hiding.”

  16. Well Tiger has at least three in play, according to the UK’s Daily Mail. The Las Vegas cocktail waitress is not bad looking–although she supposedly bad mouthed Tiger’s performance in the sack. But she is dumb, at least compared to the New York woman. The New York woman latched on to Gloria Allred, threatened to hold a press conference, and supposedly cancelled the press conference when she was paid a million dollars. If the Las Vegas hottie had been smart, she would have latched on to Allred as well, got her million, and kept her mouth shut.

    Ol’ Tiger is now in a sort of feeding frenzy of female sharks, each seeking to, and some succeeding in, taking a bite out of his wallet. It’ll only get bloodier until all of the sharks have been fed.

  17. Ol’ Tiger is now in a sort of feeding frenzy of female sharks

    Great straight line Mr. Myers. Leads right to:

    Tiger jumped the sharks.

  18. Powerful, rich and famous men have had both wives they love and mistresses-on-the-side for eons. But until recently most didn’t seem to act so overtly and incautiously common as to pick the mistress up publicly in cocktail lounges and at casinos. Also, there are a lot more nasty sexual diseases and viruses out there in the general public these days that a man should worry about bringing home to his wife.

    The more I think about all this, the more the amateur psychologist in me concludes this: That Tiger was too busy becoming a golf legend under his dad’s thumb in his teens and early 20’s, when most red blooded young men are sowing wild oats. He appears now to be trying to capture something in his life that he missed before, (which includes approaching his “dating” sort of naively exactly like a teenager would).

  19. Someone ought to remind Tiger that, “you can’t buy happiness.”

    If Tiger keeps paying big bucks to bimbos to keep them quiet, more bimbos will get in the payday line. And, if he lets his wife blackmail him into revising their prenup, it will eventually cost him the marriage he’s now trying to save, in addition to one heck of a lot more money.
