Ex-Tiger mistress arrested in Hollywood
A woman who said she had an affair with Tiger Woods is due in court Thursday after she was arrested on suspicion of driving with a suspended license in West Hollywood.
Jaimee Grubbs was taken into custody Wednesday after a random license plate check of her 2004 Ford Mustang showed she had three outstanding warrants for driving on a suspended license, Los Angeles County sheriff’s Deputy Jeff Gordon said.
Grubbs was issued a new citation after it was determined she was still driving on a suspended license, Gordon said.
Grubbs was released early Thursday morning after posting about $30,000 bail. She’s scheduled to appear at the Beverly Hills courthouse Thursday morning on the outstanding warrants.
Grubbs, a Los Angeles cocktail waitress, told Us Weekly she had a 31-month affair with Woods and had the text messages to prove it. She also provided the magazine with a voice mail she said came from Woods.
Recent reports have suggested that Woods’ divorce from estranged wife Elin Nordegren is imminent.
RadarOnline reported Wednesday that Nordegren met with a divorce lawyer shortly before flying to Scottsdale, Ariz., on Sunday.
The entertainment Web site said she met with the lawyer at the home she is renting in Orlando, Fla., and the lawyer spent several hours at the home.
Just days after the Woods completed his return to golf following his cheating scandal, "Entertainment Tonight" also reported that Nordegren, who failed to show at the Masters, was close to filing for divorce.
The superstar golfer’s life began to unravel last November when The National Enquirer reported that club hostess Rachel Uchitel had an affair with Woods. While Uchitel never addressed the rumors, more than a dozen other alleged mistresses have come forward with claims they had sex with Woods during his marriage.
The women include former porn star Joslyn James, who claims she was his mistress for three years, former Playboy model and prostitute Loredana Joli, swimsuit model Cori Rist, cocktail waitress Jamie Jungers, waitress Mindy Lawton, another porn star Devon James, who claims they had sex on-and-off for two years, and Grubbs.
