Don’t blame Tiger! He was just hanging out with the wrong boys. At least, that’s what the golfer’s former legal advisor is saying: “I told him, ‘Stay away from that son of a bitch [Michael Jordan], because he doesn’t have anything to offer to the f***ing world in which he lives,'” lawyer John Merchant told Vanity Fair. Merchant claims that Tiger only fell from grace after he started hanging out with the likes of NBA partiers Jordan and Charles Barkley. “This is worse than one of Shakespeare’s tragedies,” Merchant bemoaned. Las Vegas nightclub hostess Jamie Jungers confirms that “One of the times [Woods] arrived in town, he texted me, ‘I’m gambling with Charles Barkley. Text me when you’re here.'” Another one of the disgraced golfer’s ladies, Loredana Jolie Ferriolo, says Michael Jordan once made a pass at her when she arrived at a casino in the Bahamas to hook up with Tiger.
