Despite mounting reports to the contrary, Rachel insists she never has an affair with the golfer and denies knowing the "friends" who put the story in the press.
Rachel Uchitel, the mistress romantically linked to Tiger Woods, has denied she is having an affair with the golfer. In a candid interview with FOX News Channel on Saturday, November 28, she claimed the mounting affair story, which was first brought to the surface by National Enquirer, was made-up.
"I never crossed paths with Tiger in Melbourne - not in a restaurant, not in the gym, not in the lobby, nothing," Uchitel insisted during the interview when referring to on-going claim that she hooked up with Woods in Australia. The 33-year-old, moreover, denied knowing the two "friends" that put the much-talked affair story in the press.
"This is not something I want to be involved with at all," Rachel was quoted as claiming, "I'm not trying to go out there saying I'm having an affair with Tiger Woods."
The day before, November 27, just minutes after Woods' single car crash, Rachel spoke to Us Weekly, stating "I did not have an affair with Tiger Woods. I met him twice and have not heard from him since." She, additionally, wished him well, but added "this has nothing to do with me. I don't understand why anyone would think this is anything to do with me."
On the same occasion, Rachel also told the publication that she has contacted National Enquirer and offered to take a polygraph to prove the truth. The media refused it though. "They told me it was too late and the story was running anyway," said Rachel. In a conversation days before Woods' crash, Rachel also insisted her innocence.
By Sunday morning, November 29, Rachel was spotted arriving at LAX and was greeted by top notch lawyer Gloria Allred, who told photographers that "at some point we'll decide what the next step is," but refused to offer further detail.
