AT&T announced Thursday that it is ending its endorsement deal with the scandal-ridden golfer, even though the “multi-year” contract was only signed in early 2009. An AT&T logo had appeared on Woods’s golf bag, and he and the company had several links through his charitable foundation and AT&T-branded golf tournaments.
Consulting company Accenture has already ditched the philandering athlete, and Gillette has played down its relationship with Woods in advertisements and packaging. Other companies, like Pepsi, Nike and Electronic Arts, have either said they’re sticking by Woods or remained mum.
Mike Tyson is a free man. Mike Tyson will not be prosecuted for allegedly punching a photog at Los Angeles International Airport.
The L.A. City Attorney officially rejected the case today, citing “insufficient evidence.”
Tyson was arrested last month for battery after a bloody confrontation with a paparazzo outside the United terminal at LAX. Tyson claimed the photog was harassing him, his wife and child.
The photographer was taken to the hospital and stitched up.
The City Attorney also declined to file charges against the photographer.

Rush Limbaugh has been taken to a hospital with chest pains.
KITV reported Wednesday that paramedics responded to a call at 2:41 p.m. from the Kahala Hotel and Resort where Limbaugh is vacationing.
