Amidst a pretty messy affair scandal, Tiger Woods
has apparently changed his cell phone number, and isn't taking calls from even his famous friends, according to Charles Barkley
). The NBA legend said he was concerned about his golfer pal in an interview he did with Spike Lee
that will air on the show With All Due Respect
, which airs Sunday. Charles Barkley (Getty)
"I think when you have these fires in your life, as I call them, you need to talk to somebody else who is famous who [has] been through things in their life," Barkley said. "I don't think you can talk about it to your family and friends, because your family and friends, they're not famous."
Spike joined in on the discussion, and said that he hopes the athlete's pals can offer him some support. "He's insulated," he said. "If Charles Barkley
and Michael Jordan
can't get to him, and those are his boys, then other people are making bad moves."
The whole Tiger affair scandal started when he got into a one-car crash outside his Florida mansion around 2am November 27. Rumors spread that the accident was a result of the golf pro's wife Elin Nordegren
coming after his SUV with a golf club after she found out about his infidelity, and things have rapidly spiraled downward since then.
