Rachel Uchitel — who was recently photographed kissing married lawyer Ed Batts on their way home from a romantic getaway — claims he is already separated from his wife.
Earlier this week, Batts’ wife of six years, Robyn, told the Daily Mail that he met Uchitel, best known as Tiger Woods’ former mistress, online in November. He suddenly left her, Robyn claims, less than a month later, by closing the family bank account and boarding a red-eye to Palm Beach, Fla., to be with Uchitel, as well as shipping his Porsche down south.
“It’s such a huge betrayal. The kids are devastated. They wanted him there at Christmas and he wasn’t there,” Robyn told the British outlet.
But Uchitel told Page Six, “Robyn is publicly humiliating her estranged husband, whom she has been separated from for quite awhile, by using me as a target.” She added, “It’s sad that the media has yet again taken a story out of context and are trying to paint me as a mistress, when that is not the case.”
Meantime, Uchitel will appear in the upcoming HBO documentary, “Tiger,” and says it’s her chance to tell her side of the story about another relationship, so that “the public can see how I was vilified over the past decade.”
Uchitel, whose fiance died in 9/11, made headlines when Woods’ then-wife, Elin Nordegren, discovered their affair, and it subsequently came out he’d cheated with multiple women.
