(Newser) – It pretty much goes without saying that Tiger Woods paid Rachel Uchitel off—but the real amount 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 TMZ reports it’s actually $10 million. Sources say the golfer agreed to the amount because he’s scared of what mistress No. 1 could reveal.

Other alleged mistresses, who apparently don’t freak Tiger out as much, got anywhere from nothing to several hundred thousand. Insiders say the $10 million payout is a sign that Elin Nordegren will get at least $20 million, plus support, if she divorces Woods.
