In a statement released on his website Wednesday, Tiger Woods offered a "profound apology" for his actions but didn't get into specifics. What's clear is that the living legend's squeaky clean image is taking a major hit.
Singer's firm sent out a cease-and-desist letter to media outlets demanding they not publish reported nude photos of Woods.
The letter adds that the demand is not an admission that such photos actually exist. But, if there are any, the letter said, they may have been either doctored or were taken while Woods was sleeping.
In more Woods news, his golfing idol, Jack Nicklaus, still four major tournament victories ahead of Woods for his career, is taking the high road when asked about Woods' so-called "transgressions."
"It's none of my business," Nicklaus told Reuters news agency. "I really don't have a comment at all about it… He's a great athlete and he'll figure it out."
Charles Barkley, who was at Woods' wedding and who has had his own share of troubles, is coming to Woods' defense.
"Man, I just want you to know I love you, you're my friend," Barkley said on TNT's "Inside the NBA." "I know everybody's kicking you right now, but I want you to know you are not alone. "You got friends. I'm not here to condone or trash you but you have friends who are going to be with you through thick and thin. God bless you and Elin and the kids."
