Another Tiger Woods bombshell:
Keith Kelly at the NY Post is reporting that Tiger bribed the owner of the National Enquirer to kill an affair story two years ago by agreeing do a cover shoot for sister publication Men’s Fitness.
The owner of both publications, David Pecker, vehemently denies the story, which was floated by a former Men’s Fitness editor Neal Boulton.
The National Enquirer caught Tiger Woods in a steamy extramarital affair two years ago, but killed the story in exchange for the golfer doing a rare cover-shoot for its sister mag — despite Tiger’s exclusive deal with a rival publication, a former editor told The Post.
Woods’ camp, fearful of a potential public-relations nightmare in spring 2007, allegedly agreed to do a cover for Men’s Fitness — a magazine owned by the Enquirer’s parent company, American Media, former Men’s Fitness editor-in-chief Neal Boulton said yesterday.
“[American Media CEO] David Pecker knew about Tiger Woods’ infidelity a long time ago,” Boulton told The Post. “[Pecker] traded silence for a Men’s Fitness cover.”
