Well, all that positive news about Tiger Woods didn't last so long!
Apparently, Earl Woods Jr. hasn't heard from Tiger since their father's funeral… in 2006!
Sadly, Earl reveals that the other half-brother, Kevin, is wheel-chair bound because of MS diagnosed in 2009 and is financially struggling.
"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. We haven't asked Tiger for a dime. Not even tickets to a tournament. But Kevin's losing his home. He needs a caregiver and he can't have a caregiver and keep his home at the same time."
That is so sad!
We can understand if there wasn't a real reason to help out or at least talk to your brothers, but come on!
"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 if 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."
Such a bummer. We hate to see anyone quarrel, especially family, and especially families in need.
If your brother needs you, Tiger, at least pick up the phone!
