Tiger Woods' alleged affairs with two different women look to have played a role in his now-infamous car crash last week, and the evidence continues to pile up.
A few minutes ago, the golf legend posted a new statement on his official site regarding the scandal that continues to dog him and his wife, Elin Nordegren.
Tiger Woods writes:
"I have let my family down and I regret those transgressions with all of my heart. I have not been true to my values and the behavior my family deserves."
"I am not without faults and am far short of perfect. I am dealing with my behavior behind closed doors. Those feelings should be shared by my family alone."
"Although I am a well-known person and have made my career as a pro athlete, I am dismayed to realize the full extent of what tabloid scrutiny means."
"For the last week, my family and I have been hounded to expose intimate details of our personal lives. The stories in particular that physical violence played any role in the car accident were utterly false and malicious. Elin has always done more to support our family and shown more grace than anyone could possibly expect."
"No matter how intense curiosity about public figures can be, there is an important principle at stake which is the right to some simple, human measure of privacy."
"I realize there are some who don't share my view on that issue. But for me, the virtue of privacy is one that must be protected in matters that are intimate and within one's own family. Personal sins should not require press releases and problems within a family shouldn't have to mean public confessions."
"Whatever regrets I have about letting my family down have been shared with and felt by us alone. I have given this a lot of reflection and thought and I believe that there is a point at which I must stick to that principle even though it's difficult."
"I will strive to be a better person and the husband and father that my family deserves. For those who have supported me over the years, I offer my profound apology."
