The president of the Marketing Department of America says that Tiger's brand is far from finished, but it's still hard to see how the golf champ is going to start rebuilding his public persona. Above and beyond the actual harm done to him and his family, sponsors have become disinclined to have him as a frontman for their products. The latest potential problem for Tiger has a travel-related angle, with private jet portal NetJets reconsidering their relationship with him:
The company arranges business class segments on its suite of private jets for wealthy individuals or corporations who need transportation between 50 and 400 hours a year... Earlier this week NetJets CEO David Sokol issued a statement pledging his support to the golf icon following the initial revelations prompted by the now infamous car accident involving Woods. However as the story has unfolded this week the pressure on the once squeaky clean Woods and in turn his commercial partnerships has mounted.
Her love don't cost a thing, but her bad behavior isn't cheap: A NetJets flight attendant is suing Jennifer Lopez for an '06 flight in which the singer-actress's German shepherd bit her in the leg.
Lisa Wilson was working a flight carting Lopez from Long Island to Burbank, California when Floyd, J.Lo's dog, lunged at the flight attendant, causing her to fall and injure her lower back. The suit says Lopez knew the dog was violent and cautioned Wilson not to antagonize it, but that it attacked unprovoked.
NetJets isn't named in the suit, but Lopez and her parent company could both be on the hook for the pay-out. But Lopez is no stranger to the courtroom; she testified in a 2001 trial about a shooting in a New York City club which she had attended with then-beau Sean "Diddy" Combs.
