"She's scared because there are a lot of rich people who help him," a friend of the ex-girlfriend told the Post. "Her family, they're not rich, fancy people."

Oxelson had apparently experienced some fame as a Tiger Woods impersonator. Reportedly charging $3,000 an outing, Oxelson made it into a 2001 issue of Sports Illustrated and even featured on a question in a 2003 edition of Trivial Pursuit.
