Tiger Woods won't help his half siblings

Tiger Woods' half-siblings say their calls for help from the golf superstar have fallen on deaf ears.
Woods' older half-sibling Kevin Woods has been battling multiple sclerosis and is now confined to a wheelchair. He needs a caretaker and is in danger of losing his San Jose home.

Kevin's brother Earl Woods Jr. told ESPN's Rick Reilly that calls to their famous sibling have gone unreturned.

"I leave messages. I leave updates on Kevin, but for whatever reason I don't get a response. … Kevin loves Tiger. A call from Tiger would really pump Kevin up. When he doesn't call, it just makes him feel worse," Earl Woods Jr. said.
Woods' rep did not immediately respond when ABCNews.com requested for comment.
Earl Woods Jr., Kevin Woods, and their sister Royce, share the same father, Earl Woods, as Tiger. They are the offspring of Earl Woods' first marriage to Barbara Gary.
The Woods siblings remained close with their half-brother until he turned "about 15 or 16," and his star started to rise, Earl Woods Jr. said. Since their father's death in 2006, the half-siblings have been unable to contact Woods at all. No one seems to know the reason for the rift.
Now Kevin Woods needs his famous brother's help, Earl Woods Jr. says.
"Nobody's asking for money here, but [a caregiver] really would be nice for Kevin. It would make Kevin comfortable. He wouldn't have to leave his house. … But we'd at least like to be able to find out how Tiger is, to find out if he's OK, and to let him know if we're OK," Earl Woods Jr. told Reilly.
Barbara Gary Woods, Earl Woods' first wife, told Reilly, "I'm very disappointed in Tiger. Before he got all famous, they were in touch a lot."
Earl Woods Jr. was more vehement.
"I'd like to [slap] Tiger, wake him up. I'd like to say, 'Don't come knocking on the door when you need a bone-marrow transplant.' To see this is the response we get? Maybe when you see the world like he does, you don't see what other people are going through. But, seriously? You've got problems with your knee? That's nothing compared to what Kevin is going through. Nothing," he said.

Wicked man...ur own blood,too bad

ONYX linda ikeji first son GODWIN said...

First,no one knows what happened that is making tiger not answering tjemw,2ndly he's not obligated too. Now my own,why bring this to the media? A way forcing him to help?

Vivian Reginalds said...

People shd stop being pests, issit by force to help? Suddenly they're claiming a call from tiger would rev up the spirit of sick Kevin Odiegwu as magicians abi Na fortune tellers.
Don't get me wrong, its OK to help Buh it's not by force so stop compelling/ manipulating tiger, he has a right to wa he wants to do.
-D great anonymous now as Vivian Reginalds

Like a caregiver is paid with saliva not money ba? Until I hear from Wood's side of the story, I can't make assumptions here.Some siblings can be a boil in the ass of the famous ones.Nobody knows the true story on why Tiger is keeping mute.Some things unsaid are worst than a nightmare

Put your hope and trust in God and not man. Man will always disappoint. Though for me, no matter the rift in the family; as long as this has to do with health issues, it should be brushed aside.

chinoni said...

no brother in jungle. now that he is rich everybody wants him to remember family, when he was struggling i bet you barely knew his name

Elikplim Torgah said...

Wood has his own reasons

Chioma Azuwike said...

When Forbes quotes your worth, that is documentary or mere academic exercise. Using the fund in real life or in such scenario above is now Reality. so oga do something...

Anonymous said...

Linda "copy & paste" Ikeji, news from April 2012 that you are now dishing out to us in Feb 2016. A little bit of fact finding will do you good.

Yomi Ibironke said...

It won't be okay to judge anybody for now cos we don't really know what transpired.

Eventhg they share same papa so 3 grown ups plus their mum can't afford caregiver unless thru Tiger, whether he's right or not?
They must have hurt and rejected him deeply b4 his fame; could even have tormented him secretly that he'll not amount to anythg, who knows? *NOT A FAN @ all*

Angel Makiz said...

Nawa ah.....angelmakiz@yahoo.com

It is not shameful or sad, they could have learn to play golf or some kind of sport as well instead of waiting for a half sibling to sort them out. He didn't work so hard to care for them, he has a family of his own and good investment to make for the future.

What if he is not famous?

Eddy Ogbunambala said...

Tiger odiro kwa mma oo! Help your brothers na

Theresa Egan said...

There might be more to this than meets the eye. All I know is, not everyone can be as kind hearted and generous as Linda Ikeji is to her family members & outsiders. Everyone is different when it comes to giving, etc
