Disgraced golf god Tiger Woods told cougar mistress Theresa Rogers that he married Elin Nordegren only to boost his public image, according to reports.

While this account comes from an unnamed friend of Rogers, do you dispute it? The sleaze clearly wasn't interested in any other perk of being married.

Rogers, the only one of Tiger Woods' mistresses known to have slept with him before and after he got married to Elin, was serious with him for a time.

"I was with Theresa in Florida and when we pulled up to the house where we were going, Tiger Woods got out,” a friend of hers told Radar Online.

At that point, "I walked around the car and looked up and sure enough, Tiger Woods was kissing Theresa on the lips. Long and passionate kisses.”

Theresa Rogers bragged about her affair with Tiger for years, even boasting that she taught her younger man everything he knows in the sack.

She said Tiger told her marrying Elin was just for PR and his image.

Rogers, 49, is represented by Gloria Allred and is believed to be negotiating a settlement, presumably to get paid to keep a lid on stories like this.

Or our personal favorite, the one where she supposedly tried to have Tiger's baby without him knowing, but with her sterile husband's knowledge.

Meanwhile, Tiger’s wife Elin has removed her wedding rings and will file for divorce, multiple sources are reporting. And who can blame her, really?

Many sources say she simply cannot forgive Tiger for the betrayal that has seen his number of mistresses hit double digits, with more likely to come.

No matter how hard he tries to apologize, or how much money he offers her via an expanded prenup, Elin is not likely to be persuaded to stick it out.

She's going to get paid handsomely either way, after all.

Tiger’s public image as a hard-working golfing legend and happily married father of two  helped him build a lucrative empire of endorsement deals.

We're not divorce lawyers, but that fact plus his rampant infidelity and deceit would seem to put her in good position to claim half his net worth.

After a troubled history with the law (five arrests in an 18-month span a few years ago), NFL star Chris Henry seemed to be coming back from the brink.

The football player credited his success in turning his life around to fiancée Loleini Tonga and their kids: Seini, 3, Chris Jr., 2, and DeMarcus, 10 months.

But now, after Henry passed away Thursday from injuries he sustained after a domestic dispute with Loleini Tonga, that relationship is in the crosshairs.

Homicide detectives have been assigned to the case, according to Charlotte-Mecklenburg police, after Henry fell out of a pickup truck earlier this week.

He suffered life-threatening injuries Tuesday and died early Wednesday.

The more details emerge, the more tragic the story becomes.

In the last conscious moments of Chris Henry's life, the Cincinnati Bengals member begged Tonga to stop so they could talk or he'd kill himself, a witness said.

Police say a domestic dispute jump-started the turn of events that led to fatal injuries Henry sustained after falling from the moving pickup. Henry was on medical leave visiting Loleini Tonga's family when the fight began Wednesday.

Neighbor Lee Hard, was on a ladder cutting back some trees when he saw the yellow pickup "zooming" up the Tongas' gravel driveway a few yards away.

Hardy said a shirtless black man (Chris Henry) clung to the top and side of the truck while standing in the bed, begging Loleini Tonga to stop the vehicle.

"He was banging on the top, on the doors, screaming, 'We need to talk,'" Hardy said. "He yelled, 'If you take off, I'm going to jump off and kill myself.'"

She stopped, hesitating at the end of the driveway, but then took off. Emergency dispatchers soon got a 911 call from a woman driving behind them.

It is not known how or why Chris Henry fell from the truck, but the fall ultimately claimed his life at 26. Also unclear is why Loleini Tonga and he argued that day.

TMZ may have shed some light on that, however. Just one day before he died, Henry met with a rep from a North Carolina wedding planning company.

That company claims the Cincinnati Bengals player was "annoyed" and "aggravated" Tuesday night at the cost of putting together his wedding to Tonga.

Henry became upset when he saw the bill and "with an attitude" asked Loleini, "How much we paying for all this?" The two then "bickered" over details.

Eventually Henry walked outside so Loleini could work out the details and fill out paperwork, which she later mentioned (seemingly happily) on MySpace.

We're not sure how we feel about Rihanna's new video.

On one hand, "Hard" is edgy and catchy, much like most Rihanna songs (and part of the reason she can beat Chris Brown when it comes to album sales).

Conversely, there's something about it that feels a little like an SNL parody of Rihanna at certain times, between the voice and some of the costumes.

You could say it's sort of "Hard" to put your finger on.

Check out Rihanna's video and see if you dig it ...

What do you think of Rihanna's "Hard"?

Joe Jackson.

That's the biggest reason the executors of Michael Jackson's estate believe they are entitled to more than the statutory fee most executors receive.

That and the 14-hour days.

According to legal documents filed with the court, co-executors John Branca and John McClain "defend the estate from a steady barrage of attacks."

Those attacks would be courtesy of the late music icon's erratic father, Joe Jackson and, until recently, by his mother and other family members too.

They claim they've been working 14 hours a day, seven days a week since they were appointed and say their "business reputations and the character and reputation of Michael Jackson were being assaulted by personal and unfounded attacks."

Joe Jackson is still making Michael's life difficult.

This forced them to correct these allegations fervently and publicly in order to protect the Michael Jackson estate and the Michael Jackson brand.

No specific behavior by Joe was mentioned (in reports), but his relentless quest to cash in can mean objections raised to ... just about everything.

Guy is not known for tact, either.

Branca and McClain say at the time Michael Jackson died June 25, Michael and his businesses were named as defendants in 11 separate lawsuits.

It only got worse after his death.

Executors get a percentage of the value of the estate. Jackson's two are asking for "extraordinary compensation" for work most executors never have to do.

Leelee Sobieski and fashion designer fiancé Adam Kimmel had a baby girl.

The Emmy-nominated actress delivered a daughter late Wednesday evening in New York, Sobieski's rep confirms. No name has been released.

The couple – who became engaged in June and announced the pregnancy in September – are still planning to wed ... just a little bit later now.

"We have pushed that back," the actress said about her nuptials to Adam Kimmel. "Now we are going to maybe get married in the spring."

Congratulations to Leelee Sobieski and Adam Kimmel!

The Joan of Arc star most recently appeared in summer's Public Enemies alongside Johnny Depp; She can next be seen in The Mad Cow opposite Jeffrey Tambor.

Gym teacher Brad Ferro punched Snooki (Nicole Pilozzi) in the face in what has become the most infamous scene from Jersey Shore, even though it hasn't aired yet (it was supposed to tonight) and MTV decided to edit out the brutal KO.

Now he wants her to know he's sorry.

"I am sick to my stomach," Brad Ferro tells the New York Post. "I can''t believe I'd ever do anything like that. I was raised to act in a respectful manner to women."

"I deeply regret what happened," he says of punching Snooki, which you can still see online if you must. "Nobody deserves that. That was not the real Brad Ferro."

Snooki Polizzi

Ferro was arrested back on August 19 after knocking Nicole Polizzi the f*%k out at the Beachcomber Bar & Grill in Seaside Heights, N.J., and was suspended from his job.

He also enrolled in anger management courses. That's a good thing.

Brad, who admits he "drank way too much" that night, says that just days before, he taught his students about bad decisions and the dangers of alcohol abuse.

"I remember very little from the incident," Ferro says. "It's all fuzzy. I remember a punch ... I don't remember who or why, but I do remember being arrested."

Ferro's lawyer Andrew Siben says his client has learned his lesson and "should be given a second chance to show he is a person of much higher character."

Jersey Shore airs tonight, sans Snooki punch, on MTV at 10 p.m.

Brad Ferro punched Snooki's lights out this summer.

The worst part: the attack was all over a drink. Ferro tried to take Snooki's cocktail and when she yelled at him for it, he retaliated ... with a fist. Loser.

Where in the world is the embattled Tiger Woods?

It's been three weeks now since one of the biggest celebrity sex scandals in history erupted, but the world's #1 golfer himself is nowhere to be seen.

He's always fiercely guarded his privacy, likely due in part to the 11 mistresses he was hollering at, and Tiger certainly hasn't changed his stripes.

Since the scandal blew up, Woods has been AWOL, commenting only briefly on his website with an apology and then announcing his break from golf.

So where is he? According to a resident in Woods' Windermere, Fla., community, he "comes by in the evening only for their counseling and therapy."

Where is Tiger Woods? Laying low, and on the driving range.

Woods is believed to be staying in another property he owns locally, although he has not been seen in public in Orlando or anywhere else in weeks.

After therapy sessions - which a source describes as Tiger "just apologizing over and over again" - Woods heads to a nearby course to hit golf balls.

"He tries to clear his head," another local says. "He goes after dark so he can't be seen. For him, what's more therapeutic than hitting golf balls?"

"It's the thing he's best at in the whole world."

The thing that he's worst at may be marriage, and it looks like it's too late. A new report claims that Elin Nordegren - mother to Tiger's two children Sam, 2, and Charlie, 10 months - will divorce him in the very near future.

Forget the Grinch. Hayden Wright, a Tennessee four-year-old, stands accused of stealing Christmas presents from his neighbors, according to reports.

Hayden is accused of committing his holiday thievery after consuming a beer. Yeah, that'll do it every time. Happened to one of our interns last week.

He was found at 1:45 a.m. on Tuesday wandering the streets in a little brown dress that he is believed to have stolen from under a neighbor's tree.

The kid entered after he rang the door bell, took the dress, then moved on to another house. Nice of those first people to intervene and call for help!

Hayden's mother, April Wright, is going through a divorce from Hayden's father, who is in jail, and she thinks he may have been looking for his dad.

"He runs away trying to find his father," said 21-year-old April. "He wants to get in trouble so he can go to jail because that's where his daddy is."

Really, April? He's four! And was drunk at the time!

Here's a news report on poor Hayden Wright ...

Sending packages and letters to stars containing your delusional and paranoid thoughts? That's creepy stuff, to be sure, but fairly manageable as far as stalkers go these days. Get a restraining order and they usually back off.

Showing up at their kids' pre-school? Now we're talking dangerous.

Steven Burky, a accused of stalking Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck more than once before, is a barrage of criminal charges for what he pulled this week.

Cops arrested the stalker on Monday outside the L.A. nursery school where their daughter Violet Affleck is enrolled. That's just terrifying for Jen and Ben.

The L.A. District Attorney has charged Steven Burky with two counts of felony stalking on top of two misdemeanor counts of disobeying a court order.

For breaking the restraining order filed against him last year, natch.

Garner has claimed in court documents that Burky has been stalking her since 2002. She was granted the restraining order against the weirdo last year.

Steven Burky could face up to four years in prison if convicted.
