Woods worried he was wanted only for fame

He’s accused of juggling multiple mistresses, but if recently revealed e-mail excerpts are to be believed, Tiger Woods’ biggest worry wasn’t getting caught. It was whether or not one of his alleged other women only wanted him for his fame.

According to In Touch Weekly, Woods’ e-mail correspondence with Rachel Uchitel, the first in a now-long line of ladies linked to the golf great, quickly went from lovey-dovey talk about their special connection to full-on suspicion.

“I don’t know if this is going to work,” Woods is said to have written. “I thought I was getting to know you, but it feels like I’m just another person who happens to be famous. Every time I think about it, I get a lump in my throat. … I don’t know what person I was falling for so hard. The one I got to know on the phone, e-mail, text and in person. Or the one who likes famous people. I am so confused, because what my brain is saying and what my heart is saying are two different things. … It guts me to think I’ve fallen for the wrong one.”

Well, at least it looks like he may have had a back-up plan — or 12.
