The mystery woman rushed to the hospital from Tiger Woods’ home this morning was his mother-in-law.
Dan Yates, an information officer at Health Central Hospital in Ocoee, Fla., confirmed that Barbro Holmberg, the mother of Woods’ wife Elin, was admitted with stomach pains that were not life-threatening, was treated and now is recovering in a private room.
Yates said he does not know how long she will be in the hospital. He declined to answer additional questions about Holmberg’s medical history.
Yates added he did not know who called the ambulance to the Woods’ home.
Today’s drama began at 2:35 a.m. when sheriff’s spokesman Jim Solomons said the office got a call from Woods’ home. The call was transferred to Orange County Fire Rescue.
Emergency crews responded to the scene. Holmberg at first refused treatment but was then taken to the hospital on what was described as “advanced life support,” according to NBC affiliate WESH-TV.
Holmberg arrived at the hospital on a stretcher. A black Cadillac Escalade arrived at the hospital shortly after and a younger blonde woman, apparently her daughter Elin, jumped out and ran into the hospital. Forty-five minutes later, Woods reportedly went into the hospital.
There were reports that the license plate on the Escalade driven to the hospital had only one or two characters that differed from the car involved in Woods’ crash.
The hospital is the same one Tiger was taken to on the fateful morning when he crashed his SUV.
This latest development caps off an awful week for Woods, who has seen women he has allegedly had affairs with come crawling out of the woodwork following his accident, which reportedly followed a heated argument with his wife.
As many as 10 women are alleged to have had affairs with the golf pro, with several selling their stories to news outlets or making preparations to do so.
Fed up, Nordegren was reported yesterday to have moved out.
The mother-in-law’s hospitalization comes on a day of other developments in the Woods saga:
*Deadspin.com identified another alleged mistress, porn star Veronica Siwik-Daniels, aka Joslyn James. She brings the number to 11
* When Woods was admitted to the hospital after his Nov. 27 car accident, he was listed as an overdose, according to TMZ.com. Paramedics at the scene had asked whether Woods was on medication and his wife had produced two pill bottles.
Yates, the hospital spokesman, would not comment on whether Woods was listed an overdose.
The fifth floor also was put on lockdown when he arrived and his alias was William Smith.
* Woods won’t be best man as his best friend’s wedding this weekend, TMZ reported. Bryon Bell is getting married in South Carolina. Bell was caught up in the Woods bimbo parade when it was reported that he arranged for mistress Rachel Uchitel to meet Woods in Australia.
