WITH Tiger Woods’ ex-mistress Rachel Uchitel back on the market, his new squeeze Lindsey Vonn fears their romance is doomed.
Sources say ski champ Lindsey – who recently bowed out of the upcoming Winter Olympics – is terrified that newly divorced Rachel will once again set her sights on the skirt-chasing golfer.
“Tiger casually told Lindsey that Rachel left a voice mail saying she’d called him for a chat. Lindsey was clearly eaten up with jealousy,” said a source, “but she was determined not to let Tiger see it. She blurted out, ‘I don’t care.’ But deep down, she was thunderstruck.”
The beautiful blonde has also been depressed over abandoning her Olympic dream after she failed to bounce back from a devastating crash on the slopes in 2013, said the source.
“Besides that, in the back of her mind, mind, Lindsey’s always tormented by the idea that Tiger will revert to his cheating ways,” added the source.
“Now, with Rachel back on the prowl, Lindsey worries that she’ll try to sink her claws into Tiger once again.”
As The ENQUIRER reported, 29-year-old Lindsey began pushing Tiger, 38, for a baby. Instead, just one day after she dropped out of the Olympics, the couple adopted a mixed-breed dog named Leo. Lindsey then had surgery to repair ligaments in her right knee on Jan. 15.
Meanwhile, Rachel finalized her divorce from hubby Matt Hahn on Jan. 13. Her extramarital affair with Tiger was exposed by The ENQUIRER in November 2009 and blew up his marriage to Swedish beauty Elin Nordegren, the mother of his two young children.
The whole thing cost Tiger a fortune. He reportedly paid Rachel, 39, $10 million to keep quiet about their amorous antics, and he reportedly had to shell out a whopping $110 million-plus to Elin to end their six-year union.
In 2010, The ENQUIRER reported that a then-single Tiger was thinking about marrying party girl Rachel – now mom to 28-month-old daughter Wyatt – and starting a family with her.
That never happened, and the golf icon announced his romance with Lindsey in March 2013. But it’s been plagued by one problem after another, said a second source.
“They fight like cats and dogs,” said the source. “Lindsey feels like she always needs to be looking over her shoulder to make sure Tiger isn’t fooling around.
“They got into a nasty screaming match a few months ago when Tiger saw a picture of Rachel in a magazine and commented on how hot she is.
“Then, a few days after Tiger mentioned Rachel’s voice mail, Lindsey started pestering him about his feelings for her. Tiger just laughed and told her that jealousy is a huge turn-off.
“But Lindsey expects it’s only a matter of time before Tiger and Rachel hook up, and she’s left out in the cold.”
