Tiger Woods broke my heart, says 'mistress'

One of Tiger Woods' alleged mistresses said today she was left broken-hearted following the end of their relationship.

Jamie Jungers, who claims to have conduced an 18-month affair with the championship golfer, told NBC's Today programme the pair got together after they met in a Las Vegas nightclub in 2005.

But the fling ended after the billionaire sportsman refused a request from Ms Jungers for financial help. "That shows to me how much I mean to you," the 26-year-old claims she told Woods at the time.

Jungers told Today that ultimately she got "nothing out of this relationship but a broken heart".

During the live interview, the alleged mistress vehemently denied allegations that she has worked in the past as an escort and that she used Woods' money to pay for liposuction.

Meanwhile, a porn star who claims to have had a one-night stand with the golfer used a separate interview with celebrity website TMZ to deny she was to blame for his marital woes.

"I am not a home-wrecker," Holly Sampson said, adding: "Although I enjoyed our time together, I never was and never will be one of Tiger's mistresses."

The pair are the latest to speak out about their alleged sexual dalliances with Woods.

Yesterday, Rachel Uchitel, the New York socialite whose reported affair was the first to be made public, also denied that she was a "home-wrecker".

A newspaper article alleging an involvement between Uchitel and Woods reportedly sparked a row between the champion golfer and his wife before his mystery car crash two weeks ago.

She told OK! magazine she had been unfairly cast as "the villain of the story".

"People have called me home-wrecker, gold digger, tramp, whore. I made mistakes, but I'm not those things. I have good qualities," Ms Uchitel said.

She added: "When you're judged by the nation, it's really difficult. It's horrible."

Another woman, cocktail waitress Jaimee Grubbs, yesterday apologised to the golfer's wife Elin. In an interview with showbiz news programme Extra, Ms Grubbs said: "I couldn't describe how remorseful that I am to have hurt her family and her emotionally."

But she defended herself by saying: "If it wasn't me, it was going to be the other girls."

The number of women who have come forward with claims of a sexual involvement with Woods now stands in double figures.

Father-of-two Woods, 33, has not commented directly on the allegations but last week referred to "personal sins" and "transgressions" and apologised for letting his family down.

The damage to his previously wholesome image appears to have begun affecting some of his lucrative endorsements.

Adverts featuring the golfer have apparently disappeared from prime-time television broadcasts in the United States.

And sports drink maker Gatorade this week became the first company to drop its endorsement of Woods, although the firm said its decision was made months ago.

But a report in People magazine today claims his wife is prepared to stay with Woods despite the allegations.

A source close to Elin Nordegren apparently told the publication she was "devastated" by recent stories of widespread cheating, but that she would remain in the family home for the sake of their children.
