Tiger Woods is hiding the real reason he returned to rehab, according to the National Enquirer, which alleges he's in treatment for drugs, not sex addiction.
THG NOTE: As ridiculous as this sounds, one most remember that:
- The Enquirer outed Tiger and Rachel Uchitel. That was true.
- The Enquirer is being considered for a Pulitzer Prize (no, really, they are) for coverage of the John Edwards-Rielle Hunter sex and love child scandal.
According to the venerable celebrity news publication, Tiger has checked into The Meadows treatment center in Wickenburg, Ariz., to battle his addictions.
To prescription medications.
Woods made no mention of his drug habit in his 13-minute apology speech, and insiders say wife Elin refused to participate in his sex addiction therapy.
We'll see about that, but "In therapy, Tiger blamed a lot of his behavior on his drug addiction, saying drugs were responsible for impairing his judgment."
The golfer entered The Meadows after therapists who treated him for sex addiction at the Gentle Path program in Hattiesburg, Miss., recommended him.
"After Gentle Path, Tiger traveled to Arizona for his interview at The Meadows, which is better equipped to handle rehab for drug addiction and depression."
While calling Tiger a drug addict may be sensationalistic, he was allegedly under the influence of medication when he crashed his car Thanksgiving night.
He also liked to rail Rachel Uchitel on Ambien. Just saying.
