WFTV in Orlando reports:
A letter shared with Eyewitness News from Tiger Woods and his wife Elin apologizes to the parents whose children attend the same daycare facility as their daughter Sam.
Members of the paparazzi could be seen staked outside the school in Windermere to snap photos of Elin Woods dropping off her daughter.
Woods also scolded the paparazzi during his “talk” on Friday about stalking his wife and children.
I have always tried to maintain a private space for my wife and children. They have been kept separate from my sponsors, my commercial endorsements. When my children were born, we only released photographs so that the paparazzi could not chase them. However, my behavior doesn’t make it right for the media to follow my two-and-a-half-year-old daughter to school and report the school’s location. They staked out my wife and they pursued my mom. Whatever my wrongdoings, for the sake of my family, please leave my wife and kids alone.
Woods must know by now that his pleas to the paparazzi are futile. Perhaps he said that just to be sure he was on the record about it, and/or perhaps induce empathy from the public.
