Gloria Allred Calls Tiger Woods Apology a "Staged PR Stunt"
High-profile lawyer to many a celebrity, Gloria Allred held a statement for her client, one of Tiger Woods' mistresses, former porn star Joslyn James, and ultimately expressed she was unsatisfied with Tiger Woods' Apology calling it a "staged public relations stunt."
Allred questioned the worth Woods' apology, noting that he did not apologize to any of the women he was having affairs with, in particular, her client, James. Citing Woods and James' time spent together over the past 3 years, thousands of text messages, and Woods' apparent request that James give up her job thus leaving her without income as valid reasons why James deserves, if nothing else, at least a call from Woods. Allred and James asserted that James deserves to have a face-to-face meeting with Woods but James, who was apparently impregnated twice during the twosome's tryst, is willing to accept a phone call.
Allred stated, "I just watched Tiger Woods' apology on television, and he said that many people believed in him. He also said he wanted to make amends. He did not apologize by name to my client, Veronica, and I ask, why no apology?"
Allred further questioned Woods' remedial choices, saying sex therapy isn't the only therapy the golfer needs. She explained saying that Woods needs "lying rehab" and "betrayal rehab" in addition to his sex addiction therapy.
James made a tearful statement as well, apologizing to Woods' family: wife, Elin Nordegren, and his two children, Sam Alexis and Charlie Axel.
