LOS ANGELES (KTLA
) -- Alleged Tiger Woods
mistress, Rachel Uchitel
, is reportedly planning to sue Gloria Allred after the attorney struck a deal which forced Uchitel to return most of her $10 million settlement money.
The settlement, negotiated hours before Uchitel was to hold a tell-all news conference, included a confidentiality agreement, prohibiting Uchitel from talking about Woods.
Several months ago, Woods' attorney contacted Allred, threatening to go after Uchitel for violating the confidentiality agreement, TMZ is reporting. The attorney alleged Uchitel violated the agreement by speaking with the celebrity website and appearing on "Celebrity Rehab" to treat her addiction to love.
Allred allegedly convinced Uchitel to avoid arbitration and return most of the settlement money. In turn, Allred still gets her attorney's fees, which would not have been the case had Uchitel gone to arbitration and lost, TMZ reports.
Uchitel has reportedly hired a malpractice lawyer who is threatening a lawsuit if Allred does not return the settlement money.
Allred issued the following statement to TMZ:
"Our law firm no longer represents Ms. Uchitel and we have no comment on this story at this time. However, we are confident that we have always acted appropriately and in her best interests."
