Woods girlfriend apologises

LOS ANGELES: California cocktail waitress Jaimee Grubbs apologised to Tiger Woods’ wife Elin Nordegren in an interview with a US tabloid TV programme for having an affair with the golf superstar. “I couldn’t describe how remorseful that I am to have hurt her family and her emotionally,” Grubbs told the TV show Extra.

“If it wasn’t me, it was going to be other girls,” said Grubbs, 24. “I did care about him — I didn’t do it for superficial reasons. I didn’t do it to purposely hurt her.” Grubbs earlier told gossip magazine US Weekly that she had a 31-month affair with Woods, and presented voice and text messages as proof. Woods’ clean cut role model image has been battered in recent weeks by allegations from at least nine other women that they had affairs with him. Grubbs said she was especially hurt by reports of his affairs with other women. Woods made her “feel like I was the only girl,” Grubbs told Extra, so hearing about the other women “was devastating. It hurts.” Grubbs thinks Woods and his wife should “try to work” out their relationship.
