Tiger Woods allegedly paid his first publicly revealed mistress, Rachel Uchitel, $10 million to prevent her from speaking to the press, entertainment website TMZ reported Thursday.

There were numerous reports that Uchitel settled with Tiger for anywhere between $2 million and $5 million last December before canceling a highly anticipated news conference arranged with the help of celebrity power-attorney Gloria Allred.

But sources told TMZ that Tiger negotiated a payout closer to $10 million in return for a confidentiality agreement.

The pro golfer was reportedly concerned about the depth and detail of his relationship with Uchitel being released to the public.
