Tiger Woods 'Told Friend His Wife Had Gone Ghetto On Him'
Telegraph(UK) ^ | November 29th 2009

Posted on 11/29/2009 9:19:04 AM PST by Steelfish

Tiger Woods 'Told Friend His Wife Had Gone Ghetto On Him' Tiger Woods told a friend hours before his night-time car crash that his wife Elin Nordegren had "gone ghetto" on him, according to reports.

By Chris Irvine 29 Nov 2009

The World Number One golfer was found in the early hours of Friday lying in the road with his wife, who police said used a golf club to smash out the back window of his car and help get him out.

He was taken to Health Central Hospital in Ocoee, Florida, where he was "admitted, treated and released in good condition" later that day, according to a joint statement by his office and the hospital.

Speculation has arisen that Woods argued with his wife after she confronted him about allegations in the National Enquirer magazine he was having an affair with party events organiser Rachel Uchitel, claims she has vehemently denied. According to celebrity entertainment website tmz.com Woods told a friend that his wife had "gone ghetto" on him and scratched his face. The website then claims that Woods attempted to drive away from his house in his Cadillac Escalade, but his wife followed him with a golf club. At that point, she struck the vehicle several times with the club and he hit a fire hydrant and a tree.

Woods was left unconscious for up to six minutes following the crash and was treated in hospital for cuts to his face.

I’m trying to stay away from this - and I’m not a Tiger fanboi by any means - but it *appears* he went “ghetto” on her first.

What do you think Tiger meant by saying his wife "had gone ghetto on him"?

I've heard the term but darned if I know what it signifies, particularly as it pertains to Mr. and Mrs. Tiger.

Does it mean gone “violently irrational”?

The more I hear about this story the more I admire Jack Nicklaus. Won 18 majors, was a family man (did not marry a super model) with no rumors of infidelity, handled his wealth and fame with some degree of humility and gave back much to the game. I guess we live in different times, I hope Tiger gets through this and gets back on track.

Actually, I like Tiger and family. If this stuff happened, I feel bad for them. They have a couple cute kids and all.

I wish the best for them and pray they will get it right.

Jack, Phil and lots of other golfers. This debate betwen Jack and Tiger being the best is nonsense. Tiger may still win in majors but I doubt it now. Jack was massively long off the tee, had an incredible short game and was dominating.

Tiger is streaky lately. He missed the cut at the British Open and was spraying shots in Shanghai where Phil won. He also did not shoot a 30 on the front nine at the Masters this year like Phil.

Ben Hogan winning 6 majors after he had a head on in the fog with a Greyhound bus in 1949. His body was destroyed and fixed with 1949 medical procedures and played with pain. What Ben Hogan did after his accident is unequaled in golf or other sports.

Can you imagine Phil Mickelson telling the cops to go away for 3 days? He would be run out of the PGA, Callaway would fire him and his parents would be all over him. It is not in his nature either. I mention Phil because Toger fan boys always love to say Phil is “fake” because he is such a nice guy who signs autographs for hours and is very “fan friendly.”

Different time? More like different standards. The PGA has two sets of standards. Tiger gets away with crap the other golfers would never pull with club throwing, swearing, etc etc. He pulls the TV ratings so he gets special treatment.

Very sad.

It means she flipped out. Do you remember those old Eddie Murphy comedy routines from the '80s? Especially the one about "Don't ever hit a black woman, she'll go crazy on your ass." And then went on to impersonate a black woman flipping out? That was before PC etiquette came along and you weren't allowed to say those things.

Of course, if Tiger had said his wife had "Gone Viking on him," that would be perfectly acceptable. And just as true. The first thing my father said when he heard this story was, "Don't ever piss off a Scandinavian woman." He would know, I guess... he was based in Iceland and dated quite a few Scandinavians... and my mom is Danish. Although I don't think she's ever chased him down the driveway with a golf club.

Sad because Tiger is more Thai than black. His father was part American Indian as well. He should avoid hanging out with some of these homey types with big mouths like Barkley and Jordan. Tiger’s mom needs to put a major smackdown on him. His father would have.

From what I’ve been reading about “going ghetto”...it might refer to someone like Tiger’s wife as a person who’s not caring as much about her appearance as she was before, or perhaps getting overly dramatic about everything. Or perhaps going back to who she really was.

I’m not saying Elin is TP...but
You know what they say... “you can take the girl out of the trailer park but you can never take the trailer park out of the girl”. (not that there’s anything wrong with living in a trailer park — been there, done that... during a very rough patch in my early 20’s)

In Mrs. Woods case, I know she WAS a model of some kind - but when Tiger met her she was a “Nanny” for a Jesper Parnevik and his wife. Soooo... she was basically a beautiful girl, down on her luck when Tiger met her. I’m not saying she is White Trash, but it certainly is possible.

I have many wealthy friends who are classless and clueless about what constitutes good or bad behavior.

We know Tiger’s been pristine for his entire life - as far as his reputation is concerned; but what do we really know about Elin? I’ve watched this couple since they’ve gotten together - and who knows what goes on behind closed doors!!?? She may have flown into a jealous rage over the “alleged” affair. With as much press and paparazzi that follow them around it’s got to be a very humilitaing experience for both of them.

It’s an ugly situation and I hope they can work things out.
Tiger is good for golf and does great charity work as well with his Tiger Woods Foundation.

Now you're getting warmer. Think "The Jerry Springer Show." Think the opposite of the British "Stiff Upper Lip."

Elin is not Trailer Trash. She is European. They are just a wee bit different. A few years ago when I was still working as a flight attendant, I got invited to a party given by a girl who I think was either Swedish or Swiss or something. At one point, I was talking to her boyfriend, who was American, who was giving me the rundown on every horrible airline experience he had ever had (yawn). We were not flirting. He was not coming on to me. We were just talking. And this chick absolutely freaked out. I didn't even realize anything was going on until I saw her walking across the room wearing nothing but a towel. Swear to God. She was so mad that he was talking to me that she had gone and taken off her clothes and was walking around in a towel. When he said something to her about it, she totally "went Ghetto." She threw her wine glass at him, started shrieking and completely flipping out in the middle of this room full of people. I stood there with my mouth hanging open, then finally sprinted for the door - the boyfriend was right on my heels. She chased everyone out of the house (still wearing a towel, mind you), and we all ran down the driveway, jumped in our cars and squealed out of there.

It was an experience I will never forget.
