Tiger 'transgresses' + Common didn't call me!
Wuhloss. It seems that no celebrity is immune from scandal these days. On the heels of him crashing his Cadillac SUV into a fire hydrant and a tree, golf great Tiger Woods has pretty muched confessed to what has been rumoured in the last week; he's been cheating on his wfe Elin Nordegren, apparently with at least three other women!
He issued the following statement on his website yesterday:
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.
Now, I feel personally insulted. Tiger Woods come down here to Buhbadus to marry Elin. He block up the roads leading up to Sandy Lane and yuh had to detour all bout St. James. He nearly give we heart attack with the fireworks they let off up at the country club on the wedding night. He had paparazzi mekking people miserable trying to climb up pon roofs to get photos (though some locals mek a good buck, don't fool yuh foot). And after all that he got the audacity to cheat pon she? I feel like he cheat pon me, too!
I swear that I will NEVER understand men. What dem does really want, though? To feel needed? To feel important? Cause it seems that even if you is the prettiest woman pon the face of the earth yuh gine still get cheated on.
Look at this woman, then.
I know that all that glitters ain't gold, but Elin far better looking than that cocktail waitress or them other women. Wuh Tiger want, really? He better do more than apologise, 'cause if Elin get a good lawyer she coming for dem billions! Fore!
And talking about men, that one Common, yeah that cute rapper fella, playing he come to Buhbadus and ain't call me. I hear he and Serena had a good old time here last weekend. Is alright, though. Uh still like yuh, Lonny.
Anyhoo, check out AirBourne's site here to see the pics.
