The real amount that Tiger Woods paid Rachel Uchitel to keep silence is much, much higher than originally speculated.

Early estimates put the figure at $1 million; it was later thought to be between $2 million and $5 million—but according to TMZ’s report, it’s actually $10 million.

Sources say the golfer agreed to the amount because he’s scared of what mistress No. 1 could reveal.

Compare Rachel’s settlement with what other A.M’s received, if they got anything at all. According to TMZ, several mistresses got several hundred thousand dollars, and others got nothing. That speaks volumes about how much Rachel knows.

Insiders say the $10 million payout is a sign that Elin Nordegren will get at least $20 million, plus support, if she divorces Woods. [via TMZ]
