One Forbes sports industry expert predicts that following this latest debacle Woods will lose at least three of his big-name contracts and can expect to see his income drop by at least m-per-year.
However, they claim that his key endorsement from Nike will probably survive due to the length of their relationship.
Rist said Woods never had problems with drugs or alcohol when they were together.'I think he’s a good person, and clearly he’s a good father, and he’s going through a difficult time, and I think people should offer support instead of applauding his downfall,' Rist, a former lingerie model, said.
'I just wish him the best, and I hope to see a good outcome from all of this, and I think he’ll be OK.' Woods was arrested early Monday morning in Florida on a charge of driving under the influence.
I think he's a good person, and it's kind of sad,' Cori Rist told the New York Post on Monday, just hours after Woods' 3am arrest.
The two met in 2006 at a night club, and went on to sleep together for about six months while Woods was still married to Elin Nordegren.
And before Woods broke his silence with a statement regarding the arrest on Monday evening some of the notorious womanizer's ex-mistresses came to his defense.
