Just when you thought the Tiger Woods' sex scandal couldn't get any ickier, one of the golfer's alleged mistresses has released very intimate text messages to the public. Today, Joslyn James posted "sext" messages allegedly shared between her and Woods, which include graphic requests from the disgraced athlete about threesomes and S&M.
TMZ reports that James, 32, also posted a 2008 text message in which Woods refers to troubles at home, presumably with wife Elin Nordegren: "Having a few issues at home. Might be a little later before I see you tonight," followed by a similar message that said, "parent hood melt down :)."
In a more recent text allegedly from Woods, dated October 4, 2009, he seemed to threaten the former porn star, whose real name is Veronica Siwik-Daniels, writing to her, "Don't f***ing talk to me. You almost just ruined my whole life." Congrats, Tiger, you just made us lose our whole lunch!
Of course, Tiger announced earlier this week that he will, in fact, resume his pro golf career when he returns to the links for the 2010 Masters. But can he be taken seriously? Comedians like Jimmy Kimmel have poked their share fair of fun at Woods' racy texting habits (check out last month's hilarious Peanuts clip) and now, South Park has taken a jab at the golfer's fall from grace. In last night's season premiere, the series spoofed Woods and others who've gotten in hot water for extramarital affairs, including David Letterman and Bill Clinton. In the outrageous episode, titled "Sexual Healing," the kids of South Park play a video game in which players make Woods' wife beat him with a golf club. Ouch.
A bright spot for Woods this week came from none other than President Obama. Obama's comment was made before today's raunchy texts hit the internet: the president told Fox News he still thinks Woods is a "terrific" golfer and that "Tiger has acknowledged that he betrayed his family and that's a personal issue they've got to work out. I hope they work it out and that he returns to golf."
