PHOTOS – Update #3 – Rachel Uchitel (pictures below) has yet again denied a National Enquirer story that she had an affair with Tiger Woods. Rachel Uchitel says allegations of an affair with Tiger Woods are false in two more interviews Saturday.
On Saturday Rachel Uchitel told People “This is not a story I have anything to do with”. Uchitel also told US Magazine “I met him twice and have not heard from him since. I did not have an affair with Tiger Woods… I don’t understand why anyone would think this has anything to do with me.”
As broke on Friday here, Uchitel previously told Black Book that the Enquirer and Star Magazine stories were false.
“I don’t appreciate my name or what people think of me being dragged through the mud by people who don’t even bother to research what or who they’re talking about … they should research who these stories are coming from, who they’re believing as a credible source. Not to mention that it’s in the National Enquirer.”

Nevertheless, this weekend the National Enquirer updated their story. The paper went at Rachel Uchitel’s claims she didn’t know Ashley Samson.
On Friday, Rachel Uchitel said of Ashley Samson, “I’ve met her twice in my life. We’re not friends. I’m just speculating but it seems like someone else is telling her what to say or manipulating her. After all, she got $25,000 for this.” “
Today the Enquirer wrote “Rachel is such a close friend of Ashley’s that she recently invited Ashley to join her and some other pals on a trip to Spain. AND in an ENQUIRER web exclusive, we’re publishing a photo showing Rachel partying with her friend Ashley on that recent trip to Spain.”

Meantime Tiger Woods is not speaking to Florida Highway Patrol. A rep for Woods told AP that he had no legal obligation to speak with them over a traffic accident. When they visited his home, they were turned away.

At issue is how Woods suffered the facial injuries – from the car crash or not.
First, ESPN reports Elin “reportedly pulled Woods from the vehicle, bloodied from cuts on his face” while TMZ is reporting “there was no blood found on the steering wheel of Tiger’s SUV — putting into serious doubt that Tiger sustained his injuries from the crash.”
Second, ESPN claims Elin says “she was in the house when the accident happened”. Not so says TMZ which claims Tiger made a “retreat for his SUV … [and Tiger] says his wife followed behind with a golf club” swinging at his SUV.
Third, Woods suffered lacerations to his upper and lower lips and had blood coming from his mouth. But his rep said Friday Tiger was “fine”.
And despite reports of the crash, the SUV’s air bags did not deploy.
