Ex-Teacher Accuses Tiger Woods of Lying About Racial Attack
Tiger Woods is in trouble again, but not from another mistress. Woods’ former kindergarten teacher Maureen Decker has come out firing against her ex-student, saying that the golfer was never attacked by other students for being bi-racial, as he claimed in an anecdote that appeared in a book by Charles Barkley five years ago.
According to the kindergarten teacher, who has tapped lawyer Gloria Allred to carry her demand for Woods to make “amends,” the world number one golfer’s accusation that she did nothing when he was attacked in kindergarten was not true because there was no attack that occurred in the first place.
In Barkley’s 2005 book, Woods said that “a group of sixth graders tied me to a tree, spray-painted the word ‘nigger’ on me, and threw rocks at me. That was my first day of school. And the teacher really didn’t do much of anything.”
Decker denied the incident back in 2005, but suddenly came out just when Woods is trying to rebuild his image following his admission of infidelity. Decker is scheduled to appear in a press conference today.
