Tiger Impersonator Ex Stole Patient Records to Fake Pregnancy

A New York nurse has been charged with stealing medical records in a desperate bid to keep her former boyfriend, a Tiger Woods impersonator, in a relationship.

She told him she was pregnant and showed him images of a positive pregnancy test, ultrasound and hospital lab work to prove it to him. However, the items she showed him came from patient records at the hospital where she was employed.

"[she] allegedly stole medical records of patients in a desperate bid to keep [her ex-boyfriend] in her clutches."
- NY Prosecutor, Laura Millendorf
