New York, NY (PRWEB) January 1, 2010
The exposure of Tiger's voice message for alleged mistress Jaimee Grubbs was released on December 2, 2009, by US Weekly and caused a media storm followed by Tiger's admission posted on his web page that he has had an affair, says attorney Lisa Beth Older, Esq.
Now it is rumored that his wife may be headed toward a divorce.
The use of electronic devices such as voice messages to take down celebrities carries a huge price tag, the least of which is to destroy troubled marriages and inflict insufferable pain. "The advent of the electronic witness has heightened possibilities in divorce litigation, making it more palatable to be the innocent disenfranchised spouse," says New York divorce lawyer Lisa Beth Older.
Electronic devices have become virtual reality witnesses. More and more New York Courts are allowing electronic evidence to play a part in the divorce discovery process. Electronic devices have a long history in the annals of divorce in New York and in other states.
But unlike old fashioned cameras where one can destroy the film after the adultery is proved, computers and other like devices retain indelible traceable imprints which have been used for far more nefarious purposes. People who can reap financial gain by dallying with married celebrities are no more than home wreckers for profit, armed with an electronic device as corroboration of the affair.
"Superheroes and extraordinary athletes are not perfect and are held to a higher standard which provides an opportunity to prey on celebrities," says New York attorney Lisa Beth Older.
Improper use of electronic devises can hold innocent people hostage.
As in terrorism, governments are astute enough to know that paying off the terrorist for the release of hostages will incite more terrorism. Celebrities and persons falling victim to electronic devices should follow suit. "Celebrities being preyed upon by women with electronic devices that record infidelity are better served by following the lead of David Letterman," says New York City divorce lawyer Lisa Beth Older, citing to the example of Letterman refusing to pay for the silence of an extortionist.
In the case of Tiger Woods we see how a simple electronic devise can led to the demise of a vulnerable brilliant American hero.
