Uchitel lawyer cancels press conference


LOS ANGELES – A lawyer for a New York woman who has denied having an affair with Tiger Woods has canceled a news conference that had been scheduled for Thursday in Los Angeles.

Attorney Gloria Allred's office says in a statement that the news conference has been canceled due to unforeseen circumstances. The statement does not elaborate on the circumstances.

Allred earlier had planned to make a statement about Rachel Uchitel's relationship with Woods.

Last week, the National Enquirer published a story alleging the world's No. 1 golfer had been seeing Uchitel, a New York nightclub hostess, and that they recently were together in Melbourne, where Woods competed in the Australian Masters.

Uchitel denied having an affair with Woods when contacted by The Associated Press.
