Yesterday, Tiger Woods was arrested for a DUI in his home state of Florida.

The golfer, who less than a decade ago was raking in €1 billion, was arrested for "driving erratically, all over the road," in the early hours of the morning.

According to TMZ, police sources said that the former sportsman was "arrogant," when the police smelled booze off his breath and refused to take a breathalyser test.

This refusal led to an automatic arrest, however this morning his team have insisted that he was not drunk.

Instead, they're claiming the incident was the result of "an unexpected reaction to prescribed medications."

He was in police custody for nearly four hours before being released.

In a statement, Tiger said: "I understand the severity of what I did and I take full responsibility for my actions.

"I want the public to know that alcohol was not involved. What happened was an unexpected reaction to prescribed medications. I didn't realise the mix of medications had affected me so strongly.

"I would like to apologise with all my heart to my family, friends and the fans. I expect more from myself too.

"I will do everything in my power to ensure this never happens again.

"I fully cooperated with law enforcement, and I would like to personally thank the representatives of the Jupiter Police Department and the Palm Beach County Sheriff's office for their professionalism."


The latest celebrity relationship news is actually quite a shocker.

Gwen Stefani's ex-husband Gavin Rossdale is now dating Tiger Woods' ex-wife Elin Nordegren.

According to Us Weekly, the relationship is still in the early stages but a close source said the pair totally "hit it off on their first date."

Yep. So the man that cheated on his (stunning) wife with the nanny, is now going out with a woman who was cheated on by her former hubby.

Hollywood romances, eh?

The website claims that the pair have been flying from Florida to LA to see each other and "they want to make it work."

We're not sure about this one!


It always makes things a little messy when your friends and your exes start showing an interest in one another. It tends to be one of those circumstances that is best avoided if at all possible.

As it turns out, those in Hollywood are not of the same thinking. While Britney Spears and Tiger woods are probably not BFFs per say, there has been an interesting development in the land of celebrity couples that puts the duo in the middle.

Olympic ski champion Lindsey Vonn called it quits and split with Tiger back in May, citing their “hectic lives” as being at the root of their issues.

The 30-year old has since been spotted twice with Charlie Ebersol, Britney Spears ex-boyfriend. You may remember him from that video posted on Instagram. It seemed like his efforts to get Britney back might impress her, but apparently not.

Instead he has been spotted at the US Open alongside the Olympic athlete. While apparently the two are being very careful not to seem too cozy, a source revealed to Page Six:

“When they thought people weren’t looking, Lindsey and Charlie were very close… they were hanging on each other and had the spark of a new relationship.”

Lindsey took to Facebook in May to announce her split from Tiger writing: “Tiger and I have mutually decided to end our relationship… He and his beautiful family will always hold a special place in my heart.”

Charlie meanwhile supposedly thought Britney could have been ‘the one’. There were rumours earlier this year the couple were engaged.

Probably a good thing Brit isn’t a tennis fan then, because we reckon running into one ex was probably enough for the pair. Tiger was also at the Open last week, with his daughter Sam. It is a small world after all.


The past has come back to haunt Tiger Woods, again.

Not only is the 39-year old have a miserable first round of gold at the US Open championship in Chambers Bay, Washington, he is also being very publicly reminded of his shameful romantic history.

After the troubled athlete had four bogeys in his first seven holes – golf speak for; he was playing terribly, the tormented Tiger had to deal with a plane following his every move around the course. The plane also had a banner, which read in very large red letters “CHEATER”.

Not an unfortunate coincidence considering in 2009 he and now ex-wife Elin Nordegren were found arguing in the drive way of their Florida home. The cause of the argument being that Tiger had shamelessly strayed outside their marriage, numerous times.

The two, who have two children together, divorced later that year, but it seems the professional golfer will not be escaping his past mistakes any time soon.

Clearly ruffled by the airborne taunting, at once stage Tiger actually lost his grip on his golf club completely and sent it flying into the air as he tried to get himself out of the rough.

There are no reports that this was Tiger attempting to knock that pesky plane out of the sky… yet.

In February 2010 Tiger said at a press conference that he “thought I could get away with whatever I wanted” and that he “deserved to enjoy all the temptations” surrounding him.

He later admitted “I was foolish.”

You don't say.

Following yesterday’s disasterous round Tiger’s probably not feeling oh-so great about himself, especially if he considers that 15 years ago he led the Open by 15 strokes.

Now? He trails the leaders by 15 strokes. 



He may be a household name in Ireland, and now it looks like it won’t be long before Rory McIlroy is known all over America too!

The Holywood native, who’s pretty handy with a golf club like, appeared on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon last night alongside Tiger Woods.

The show features a hilarious game called Facebreakers, in which Jimmy and his two guests must be the first to break the glass that has their face on it…you’ll get it.

Needless to say, the winner was predicted long before the show aired and his name was actually already engraved on the trophy…!
