Tiger Woods, Ari Fleischer Split After Short-Lived Partnership

Tiger Woods made news (again) earlier in March when he hired Ari Fleischer, the much-maligned former Bush Administration press secretary, to help handle his reintroduction to the public. Since then, Woods has announced that he will return to golf at the Masters in April and gave two lightning-fast interviews Sunday night.

However, it appears that Woods' time with Fleischer has already come to an end. The adviser told the Associated Press that he "decided to withdraw." Fox News reports that Fleischer left because "his very presence gave the impression that Woods was being stage-managed in his return to the public eye."

If Woods' relationship with Fleischer is already over, then it is likely their time together was even more fleeting than some of Tiger's alleged flings. To pick just one example, porn star Joslyn James, who recently released a batch of extremely graphic text messages that Woods allegedly sent her, claims she was with the golfer long enough for him to impregnate her twice.
