Could perennial Sports Illustrated cover mainstay Tiger Woods grace the pages of an entirely different magazine in the coming weeks - and in the buff?
If Playgirl can authenticate alleged nude pics of him, then yes.
This is far from a done deal. We'd even call it far fetched. But after what's gone down in the last two weeks, we also wouldn't be altogether shocked.
Following a report that explicit Tiger Woods pictures are being considered for publication by the magazine, a rep for the magazine cleared the air:
"We're in the process of authenticating photos," said Daniel Nardico of Playgirl, which just made a big splash last month with Levi Johnston nude.
Given the hype the magazine received regarding Levi, one can only imagine what the acquisition of naked Tiger Woods pics would do.
Tiger Woods may soon be showing us an entirely different shaft.
"We have to see if they're real," he added. "You can take photos of anyone but what would it even be worth without a way to truly identify him?"
"Our attorneys are looking into the possible monetary worth."
Perez Hilton also reported today that another of Tiger Woods' mistresses reached out to Playgirl with alleged cell phone shots of the golfer's wood.
So to speak.
Nardico said the woman offering up the photos is "another [mistress] that is going to come out. She's not out yet. I don't have any [more] info."
We suspect if the Tiger Woods nude pics are real and actually get published, Elin Woods moves out on him that very second if she hasn't already.
