TIGER WOODS SERIOUSLY INJURED IN CAR CRASH IN LOS ANGELES – (02/24/2021)
Tiger Woods was hospitalized yesterday (February 23rd) following a serious car accident in L.A. County. According to TMZ, original reports said that the accident was so bad that officials used the jaws of life to free him from the vehicle, but they later said those reports weren’t true.
Officials said in a statement, “On February 23, 2021, at approximately 7:12 AM, LASD responded to a single vehicle roll-over traffic collision on the border of Rolling Hills Estates and Rancho Palos Verdes. The vehicle was traveling northbound on Hawthorne Boulevard, at Blackhorse Road, when it crashed. The vehicle sustained major damage. The driver and sole occupant was identified as PGA golfer, Eldrick ‘Tiger’ Woods.”
Tiger’s agent Mark Steinberg confirmed that the golf icon sustained multiple leg injuries and went into surgery.
In a news conference, Deputy Carlos Gonzalez — who was the first person to arrive at the crash scene, said that Tiger is lucky to be alive. He was wearing a seatbelt during the crash and officials believed that it saved his life.
Gonzalez also said that Tiger was lucid and could speak at the crash scene and did not appear to be under the influence of alcohol or any other substance.
The 45-year-old was in the area for his annual Genesis Invitational golf tournament at the Riviera Country Club in the Pacific Palisades.

JOHN MAYER NEARLY CRIED WATCHING BRITNEY SPEARS DOCUMENTARY – (02/24/2021)
John Mayer told Andy Cohen on Tuesday (February 23rd) that he almost cried five times while watching the documentary, Framing Britney Spears.
The 43-year-old singer said, “I was on the edge of tears five times. Because if you understand what this business, slash industry, slash lifestyle does to a person…To go through this and come out the other side OK, is to have infinite grace for those who struggle with it.”
Mayer has been linked romantically to several high-profile women in the music industry such as Jessica Simpson, Katy Perry, and Taylor Swift.
Twitter users were quick to point out that Mayer was not known to treat the women he dated well, with one writing, “Along the same lines as the Britney doc, I just listened to Jessica Simpson’s autobiography ‘Open Book’ and she basically got treated like sh*t by everyone, forced into a borderline eating disorder by record execs, and then emotionally abused by JOHN MAYER who is a toxic POS”.
