Tiger Wood's ex-mistress Rachel Uchitel suggests his then-wife Elin Nordegren knew about affair before it went public

TIGER Wood's former mistress Rachel Uchitel has suggested his then-wife Elin Nordegren knew about their affair.

Rachel hinted that Elin "had to pretend she didn't know" about her 2009 fling with Tiger when it was exposed to the public.

The 46-year-old talked about her affairs with various married men on RHOC's Meghan King Edmonds' podcast, Intimate Knowledge.

"I wasn't responsible [for the affairs]. I was single," the mother-of-one said.

"I can't be responsible for their relationship with their wives – this is what I told myself at the time.

"A coupe of them [her exes] were very open with what they were doing with their wives. A couple of their wives knew about it."

Rachel added: "It was only when the public found out that they had to pretend that their wives didn't know. I'll just stop there."

Meghan probed: "I'm assuming that Tiger's wife knew?"

Rachel hastily replied, "I'm not going to get into that," before moving on with the conversation.

Back in 2010, Elin said she was "blindsided" and "embarrassed" by Tiger's multiple affairs.

"I've been through hell. I never suspected, not a one," Elin told People at the time.

"For the last three and a half years, when all this was going on, I was home a lot more with pregnancies, then the children and my school."

Rachel was arguably the face of Tiger's 2009 cheating scandal.

At the time of the chaos, Tiger was married to Elin, who he shares two kids with, Sam and Charlie.

Rachel revealed that during their affair, Tiger – who was recently involved in a horrific car crash – would say "you were the only one I ever love" and that he felt "recharged" after spending time with her.

Tiger, 45, and Elin, 41, split in 2010 in a reported $100m divorce after six years of marriage. The golfer's career took a massive hit at the time.

Rachel previously told Billy Bush on Extra: "The whole thing has made my life a living hell for the last 10 years.

"I was not a mistress, and I was in a real relationship, and I want people to leave me alone about it. I made a bad decision. And I regret it, and I'm embarrassed about it."

She added: "My apology is to two people, not the world. Two people.”

Elin went on to marry former NFL player Jordan Cameron in 2019. The couple share one son, Arthur, and live in a $10million mansion in Florida.

Rachel is currently dating Ed Batts, who is separated from his ex-wife, Robyn.

Robyn recently claimed they ended their relationship after Rachel and Ed met online.

However, Rachel quickly hit back and told Page Six that Robyn is trying to “publicly humiliate” her estranged husband with the infidelity claims.

She added that Ed and his wife have “been separated from for quite awhile,” and Robyn is just trying to use her as a “target.”

Rachel has one child – a 7-year-old daughter with her ex-husband Matt.

Tiger suffered major injuries to his right leg in the recent car crash, including two open fractures and a shattered ankle – put back together with a metal rod, pins and screws.
