Tiger Woods seemed like the model athlete. All he did was go out and become the best golfer in the world by blowing the competition away week after week. And he made obscene amounts of cash doing it by being the perfect spokesperson for anyone who wanted a clean cut, stud athlete to pitch their wares.
As we all know, much of Tiger's image was a facade, but how all of the negative inched into his life still kind of remained a mystery. Well the Orlando Sentinal has an excerpt from the recent Vanity Fair piece that hints at Tiger's downward spiral that makes you think, "well that kind of makes sense."
NBA stars Michael Jordan and Charles Barkley enabled Tiger Woods'
downward spiral, one of the golfer's former advisers claims in a story
written for the May edition of Vanity Fair.
"The Temptation of Tiger Woods" tells in graphic detail elements of
Woods' affairs with four of his former mistresses and outlines Woods'
destructive behavior, which often started at a blackjack table at the
MGM Grand's VIP casino with Jordan and Barkley.
Remember kids, Charles Barkley is not a role model. Those stinkin' NBA players ruin everything.
Also, we've sadly never obtained access to the blackjack tables at the MGM Grand's VIP casino. But a boy can dream.
