Did Tiger Woods pay for the company of women?

That's the claim of Michelle Braun, owner of a former Las Vegas VIP escort service. She tells E! News that the champion golfer spent $30,000 to $40,000 on "her girls" per weekend. Two of those "girls," she says, are porn star Holly Sampson and lingerie model Jamie Jungers -- both of whom have been romantically linked to Woods. (Jungers has denied receiving money from Woods; Sampson has not commented on claims she received money, though she had acknowledged a relationship with Woods.)

Woods "had a pretty big appetite for girls," Braun claims. Any kinky requests? She says that he generally asked for "the college cutie, girls-next-door look."

Like most of her clients, Braun says, Woods paid in cash and, ahem, "like to communicate by text message." Woods last communicated with her in "mid 2008," she says -- and he never, ever used email.

Why does Braun think Woods paid for her hired ladies? "It's supposed to be discreet," she tells E!" "When you pay it's established that it's a business relationship. You don't have a girl thinking he is going to leave his wife for her and they will fall in love and have a fairy tale relationship."
