Alleged Tiger Woods mistress Jamie Jungers appeared on the Today show this morning and said Woods made no effort to hide their relationship in public and that she stopped the relationship after he refused her request for money.
(Jungers: Denies prostitution but says she asked Woods for money)
“To be honest, I’m not sure [how the relationship stayed a secret]. We went places together, people were taking our pictures in night clubs. When I went to see him at the MGM mansion, I checked in with my name and he came down to get me.“
Unwitting Contradiction #1: When Jungers was asked by host Meredith Viera if Woods made any attempt to hide their relationship, she said, “no“. Though Jungers did later say that Woods told her to record his number on her cellphone under a different name in case she ever lost her phone.
Unwitting Contradiction #2: Jungers also denied reports that she was a prostitute hired by a New York madame to have sex with the golfer: “I’ve never been an escort and I never will be an escort.”
But Jungers said later in the interview that she once asked Woods for money.
“The one time out of the whole year and a half I was with Tiger, I asked him, ‘Can you please help me out?’ ” Jungers told Vieira. “I didn’t give him a dollar amount, I didn’t say, ‘Can you buy me a house?’ I wasn’t specific about what I needed, but I did say, ‘Can you help me out?’
“He said, ‘I can’t,’ ” Jungers continued. “I said, ‘I don’t understand.’ I thought maybe he was joking. I was already embarrassed to ask about it. He said, ‘I’m sorry, I can’t.’ And that’s when I told him, ‘That shows to me how much I mean to you, and I can’t do this anymore. I’m already in a rough position in my life, and I have more drama and that’s what I don’t need.’ ”
So she dumped Woods because he wouldn’t give her money. But she isn’t an escort.
And he wasn’t hiding the relationship but told her not to put his real name in her phone.
Just wanted to get that straight. Thanks for your time, Ms. Jungers. (*Security guards move in*)
