Bryon Bell, president of Tiger Woods Design and Woods' high school friend, allegedly managed not just the golf course design firm but also Woods' affairs, reports NY Daily News. "He would coordinate my flight itineraries and make sure I was all set up to see Tiger… He was a very nice guy," said Jamie Jungers, who was allegedly with Woods the night his father, Earl, died due to cancer in 2006.
Bell also allegedly contacted Hollywood madam Michelle Braun to have Woods meet her "models." Braun said Woods "had a pretty big appetite for women," "liked three-ways," and "would request the college-cutie, girls-next-door look," reports Examiner. "Bell was definitely the middleman for Tiger," a source close to Braun told NY Daily News.
"A lot of us who love him saw this coming," a friend who's known Tiger since he was 18 said. "'You've got to be careful. It's really getting too raggedy,' we said… He was under a lot of pressure. He thought he was just letting off steam. He thought of it as a perk."
Woods' other closest pals, former Stanford teammate Jerry Chang and post-college friend D.J. Hanlon did not comment. Speaking out even in his defense is "friendship suicide," a Stanford-connected friend said.
Woods' mom, Kultilda, avoids the paparazzi.
Woods' mom, Kultilda, hasn't commented either but a family friend told People magazine that she's "hurt, angry and disappointed in Tiger." The friend added, "She wants to know how he could do this to his family… She loves him and will support him through anything, but she needs some time to work through this."
A bit of history might be repeating for Kultilda, who was reportedly cheated on by Woods' father. Woods was "so upset" with his father's infidelity, high school girlfriend Dina Parr told E! News. "I know that was the one thing about his dad that he could never get over. So yeah, it's interesting that it's turned out that he's doing the same thing."
