According to News Of The World, Tiger Woods was busy screwing one of his mistresses at his home even though he knew his dying father had only hours to live.
Just a few hours earlier he had been told by his mother that cancer-stricken Earl was “in a bad way”.
But after visiting his dad in a hospice, Tiger went home and cheated on wife Elin with former model Jamie Jungers.
As they lay in bed afterwards, Tiger got a call telling him Earl had passed away.
Jamie, 26, told the News of the World last night: “I was beside him wearing nothing but a pair of panties.”
Deceased Earl, 74, was described by his son as: “My best friend and greatest role model – an amazing dad, coach, mentor, soldier, husband and friend.”
But his grief over losing his war veteran father did not stop Tiger continuing his torrid affair.
It only ended six months later – when Jamie asked her lover for financial aid.
She said: “He’s a cheap f***er and he just didn’t want to help me.”
And she added: “I suspect he was seeing other women at the same time as me. Tiger’s very highly sexed. He loves sex.”
On May 2, 2006, he was with Jamie in his marital home in California when his mom Tida called about Earl – who had prostate cancer and was in a hospice.
Jamie said: “She told Tiger his dad was in a bad way. Tiger immediately left to be with him and I stayed at the house. He was gone nearly three hours.
“When he came back, I could see he was preoccupied and worried about his dad – but when we went to bed he still wanted to have sex as usual.
“We went to sleep. I was beside him wearing nothing but a pair of panties. Then at about 3am the phone rang. It was Tiger’s mom.
“She called to tell him that his dad had passed away. Tiger looked utterly devastated and didn’t say a word. He didn’t even cry but I could tell he was heartbroken.
“I told him, ‘I’m so sorry’ and gave him a hug. I didn’t want to be in the way so I arranged a flight home to Vegas.”
The next day, Tiger phoned. Jamie said: “I didn’t expect to hear from him for a while. I thought he would be busy having just lost his dad.
“But he told me how much he appreciated me being there with him and thanked me for my support.”
The lovers first met at Las Vegas’s Bellagio hotel, when Tiger was on a night out.
Jamie was working voluntarily for The Vegas Angels – a troupe of models who help with charity events.
The pair flirted before Tiger took her to his suite at the plush MGM Grand, where they had “wild and crazy sex”.
She said: “I was at a barbecue with friends the next day and I told a few of them about Tiger. So when he called in front of them it was very exciting for us.
“He gave me his private mobile number but warned, ‘Just save it on your phone as a different name from mine in case somebody finds it.’”
The next weekend he asked Jamie to join him at the Chicago Open golf tournament, saying an aide would make the arrangements.
Jamie was whisked to his hotel and taken to his room. “Once we were alone, we talked for a bit,” she recalled. But his chat-up lines weren’t the best. “He told this story about when he was younger and had to wear braces and a headpiece because his teeth were so bad,” she said.
Less than three weeks after their affair started, Woods invited Jamie to his marital home – one of five properties he owns around the world. Jamie, who once played a mistress in the TV series CSI – said: “It was a little strange for me.
“There were recent pictures of him and Elin, as well as their wedding photos. That did make me feel bad for his wife. I’d hate someone to do that to me.
“I knew it wasn’t right and I did try to put a stop to things but Tiger would pull me into his arms and on to the bed and beg me not to go. He’d tell me, ‘But I love being around you’. And the truth is, I loved being around him.”
Jamie said he made her feel like his girlfriend rather than a mistress. She said: I had the run of the house, and when we were together it really felt like we were a proper couple.
“I’d get up in the morning and he’d be downstairs eating a bowl of Lucky Charms cereal on the sofa and watching cartoons like a kid.
“I never confronted him about his reasons for cheating. I’ve been cheated on by guys so I know how they can be.”
Jamie also claims Woods was protective of her, and got jealous when she flirted with other men. She recalled: “One night we were partying with Tiger’s pals and some other guys. “I was dancing close with all of them and I could feel Tiger’s eyes on me. Then he started to get jealous and cut in and pulled me on to his lap.
“He was always openly affectionate towards me in front of his friends. They knew what was going on between us for sure – and Tiger knew they would keep his secret.”
The affair floundered in late 2006, when Woods – who is believed to be a billionaire – refused his mistress’s request for cash. Jamie – whose videoed interview can be seen online at notw.co.uk – said: “Tiger was always tight with money. When we’d go out for dinner, he never left a tip or he’d ask for the meal to be complimentary because he was ‘Tiger Woods’. I just thought that was cheap and it always embarrassed me.
“I never expected him to buy me anything. But he’s the richest sports star on the planet and he never once bought me a gift – not even for Christmas or my birthday.
“Once, when we were in Las Vegas, playing blackjack in the MGM Grand’s private gambling room, he won hundreds of thousands of dollars.
“He had it all there in his pockets yet never thought once about giving me a chip or letting me have a turn on him. He was very, very stingy with his money.” But Jamie turned to him when she wanted to move out of the home she was sharing with an ex.
She recalled: “I was in tears as I begged Tiger to give me financial assistance. He just batted me away and told me, ‘Look, don’t worry, babe. I’m sure everything will work itself out.’
“I persisted and told him straight, ‘I am financially unstable right now and you are a very wealthy man. I would never ordinarily ask you but I think you’ve known me long enough to trust me and want to help me’.
“His response was stony silence. Then he started, ‘Where did this come from? You’ve never said anything like this before. I don’t like this side of you.’They started rowing and Jamie hung up. Then Woods phoned her back, saying: “Don’t do this. I really care about you.”
However, Jamie has not spoken to him since – and a few months after their bust-up she heard Elin was pregnant with Tiger’s first child.
Jamie said: “That hurt my feelings more than anything.
“Clearly all the time he was sleeping with me he was still sleeping with her – yet I had managed to convince myself he wasn’t.
She added: “I firmly believe he deserves everything he’s getting now. He doesn’t belong married, that’s for sure.”
