Tiger Woods is "awake and responsive" after successfully undergoing a "long surgical procedure" on his right leg and ankle following a single-car crash near Los Angeles on Tuesday.

Woods, who lives in Jupiter, Florida, was in town to host the Genesis Invitational golf event held at The Riviera Country Club in Pacific Palisades, Calif. from Feb. 15-Feb. 21. He also met with celebrities for a promotional event with Golf Digest.

The iconic golfer had just left his hotel after 7 a.m. local time, and was speeding in his Genesis 80 sports utility vehicle when he lost control of the SUV at a curve in the road.

The vehicle crossed a divider and smashed into trees before rolling over multiple times and coming to rest on its side in a ditch near Rancho Palos Verdes, California.

Woods, who was conscious and calm, was cut out of the vehicle through the windshield and transported by ambulance to the nearby Harbor - UCLA Medical Center, where he underwent surgery to repair multiple open fractures in his lower right leg.

Surgeons stabilized the bones in his right lower leg and ankle with pins and rods.

His team released a statement on Wednesday on Twitter, which read:

"We thank everyone for the overwhelming support and messages during this tough time... He has undergone a long surgical procedure on his lower right leg and ankle after being brought to the hospital."

There was also a detailed statement from his physician, Dr. Anish Mahajan, who wrote:

"Mr Woods suffered significant orthopedic injuries to his right lower extremity that were treated during emergency surgery by Orthopedic trauma specialists at Harbor-UCLA Medical Center, a level 1 trauma center. "Comminuted open fractures affecting both the upper and lower portions of the tibia and fibula bones were stabilized by inserting a rod into the tibia. Additional injuries to the bones of the foot and ankle were stabilized with a combination of screws and pins. Trauma to the muscle and soft-tissue of the leg required surgical release of the covering of the muscles to relieve pressure due to swelling."

According to the statement, Woods, 45, is "currently awake, responsive and recovering in his hospital room".

The accident comes just two months after he underwent a fifth back surgery in December, and he was hoping to be fit enough to play at the Masters Tournament in April.

It's not the first time Tiger has been involved in a serious car accident - he crashed an SUV into a tree in Florida in 2009 as he drove away from a marital dispute with his then-wife, Swedish model Elin Nordegren.

Following news of the crash on Tuesday, Woods' ex-girlfriend Lindsey Vonn was among those sending her prayers. "Praying for TW right now," she tweeted.

Rachel Uchitel - with whom the golfer had a brief fling which triggered the end of his marriage to Nordegren - revealed she was "shaken" by the incident, and wondered how it would affect his career in the long run.

"He's an athlete and his legs are essential to his sport and to him being who he is and he's already had trouble with his body up until this point," she told the New York Post. "He didn't need any more injuries."

Hours before the crash, actress Jada Pinkett Smith took to Instagram to share a photo of herself and Woods after playing a round of golf the day prior.

She captioned the image:

"Guess who I had the most awesome golf day with yesterdayyyyyy??? Yes! The magnificent @tigerwoods!!!! Yes ... dreams come true... I can't wait for you to see my golf journey with Tiger. Stay tuned! @golftv @golfdigest."

 

Golf great Jack Nicklaus also shared his thoughts, writing he is "deeply concerned" for Tiger following the accident and he offered up "heartfelt support and prayers".

Retired sports stars Alex Rodriguez and Michael Phelps also took to social media to wish Woods well.

Jada Pinkett Smith brought in the New Year "with open arms" in a post on Instagram.

In the photo, Jada wore a sky blue and white "Cancun" bikini by Melissa Odabash (retail $234) which she accessorized with a splash of gold jewelry.

She captioned the post, "welcome you 2021 with open arms. I have no expectations. I'm going to be still and grateful."

The 49-year-old Red Table Talk host ushered out 2021 by vowing she would never loan money to broke family members because "I'm not trying to have fallouts over money."

The Girls Trip star has set strict rules for herself when it comes to sharing her wealth, because she doesn't want relationships to be ruined over someone's failure to repay a loan.

"First of all, I don't lend money. I only give money that I am willing to give like, 'This is a gift.'

"I do not lend money because that turns into a lot of problems, just as far of the expectation of people paying you back or what have you. So I tend to not give where I can't just say, 'Here's a gift to you.' Specifically people who are close to me, 'cause I'm not trying to have fallouts over money."

Actress Jada Pinkett Smith is just like you. The mom-of-two is not willing to loan money to broke family members because "I'm not trying to have fallouts over money."

In other words, Jada will give loved ones her pocket change, but if a family member needs a loan for a new car or a new house, they are out of luck.

Jada explained her stance on the latest episode of her Facebook Watch show Red Table Talk, as she helped a wealthy viewer named Samantha to navigate the "awkward" situation of feeling obliged to lend cash to relatives.

"For people like us, who came from backgrounds where we didn't have much, don't feel guilty," Jada advised. "I spent so many years feeling guilty and my guilt made me feel like I owed everybody and I wasn't allowed to say, 'No.' And that's just not true, right?"

Will Smith's wife continued, "First of all, I don't lend money. I only give money that I am willing to give like, 'This is a gift.'

"I do not lend money because that turns into a lot of problems, just as far of the expectation of people paying you back or what have you. So I tend to not give where I can't just say, 'Here's a gift to you.' Specifically people who are close to me, 'cause I'm not trying to have fallouts over money."

Jada says she will only come to someone's financial assistance if they are truly ready for the help.

"So it's like, somebody's like, 'I want a new house,' but they don't have a job to support the house they're trying to buy. It's like, 'Well, you're not ready for that.' So I'm not about to help you get into something that ultimately is going to make more difficulty for you, right? And so, I really had to look at that. So I've also learned to help people with resources, with education."

Concluding her money advice to Samantha, Jada added, "Don't feel guilty just because we got our grind on. You don't owe nobody nothing."

Thanksgiving is a time to reflect, give back and enjoy family gatherings. It's also that one time of the year to share recipes with your husband's ex-wives.

Jada Pinkett Smith (left) is preparing for the holidays by exchanging recipe ideas with Will Smith's ex-wife Sheree Zampino (right).

The actress, her daughter Willow and mother Adrienne Banfield Norris were joined by Sheree for a recent episode of the trio's online show Red Table Talk, ahead of the U.S. Thanksgiving holiday.

"We've invited our favorite cook in the family to share her secret holiday recipes," Jada says in a new clip for the show, which will air on Tuesday, before Sheree appears in the star's kitchen.

"Miss Ree here hooks us up," Jada says. "She gets down in the kitchen!" adds Adrienne.

In the episode, Sheree shares her recipes and tips on how blended families can enjoy the holidays.

Sheree and Will, who share a 28-year-old son named Trey, divorced in late 1995, while the actor and Jada wed in 1997.

Sheree previously appeared on the Facebook Watch show in 2018, during which she and Jada discussed the friendship that has developed between them over the years.

Cuban-American singer-songwriter Gloria Estefan is bringing her personal family drama to the Red Table by launching her own "Red Table Talk" series.

Gloria's new web series, titled "Red Table Talk: The Estefans," is a spin-off from Jada Pinkett Smith's popular Facebook Watch web series, which Gloria will co-host with her daughter, singer Emily Estefan and her niece Lili.

Gloria, 63, wants to break taboos in the Latin community by tackling Emily's coming out story in an upcoming Red Table episode.

"Emily came out three years ago," Gloria told The Talk on Tuesday, "and no one knows because we really never had the reason or opportunity to talk about how we dealt with it as a family."

Emily is pictured with her parents Gloria and Emilio Estefan at The Cutting Room on February 8, 2017 in New York City.

Gloria continued: "It was important for [Emily] to talk about it (on 'Red Table') and it was important for us to put it on the table. We share so much of our personal lives and private lives through (social media) that we wanted to use it in a good way, a healing way."

The "Turn The Beat Around" singer notes the LGBT discussion "got a little heated here and there" and her niece even had to be "kind of the referee".

"It's important, because some people are going through these types of things. We hope to at least get it out there and speak about it, especially in the Latin community. So many things are taboo - like everything is taboo. My mother never even kissed my father 'til they were married by the church."

Nikki Nelson / WENN

Emily, pictured with her famous parents in 2010, is a talented singer-songwriter who plays multiple musical instruments. She revealed her LGBT lifestyle in interviews last year and has performed at the 2019 Miami Beach Pride, Essence, SXSW, and GroundUp Music Festivals. The 25-year-old graduated from the prestigious Berklee College of Music in 2016.

Red Table Talk: The Estefans premieres on Wednesday. Watch the sneak peek trailer below.

August Alsina is taking advantage of the buzz surrounding his past affair with Jada Pinkett Smith by dropping a new track, appropriately titled "Entanglements."

The R&B crooner recruited rapper Rick Ross to add his personal views about entanglements with married women.

The lovestruck singer proves he still hasn't gotten over Jada - even though she and her husband, Will Smith, have gotten over him and moved on.

"The definition of entanglement / It's?when?you're tangled in?the sheets / Girl I know?that we don't call it a relationship / But you're still f—in' with me," Alsina sings.

Alsina even taunts Will on the track, singing, "I'm on my way, yeah / I'ma pull up when he dip / He's always think me and you f—in' / If he see me, he gon' trip."

Will and Jada recently cleared the air about Jada's fling on her popular web series "Red Table Talk."

Will Smith denied giving Alsina permission to pursue his wife, and Jada claimed the affair happened during a "break" in her marriage.

"What August was actually trying to communicate — because I could actually see how he would perceive it as permission because we were separated amicably — I think he also wanted to make it clear that he's not a homewrecker, which he's not," Jada said.

A loyal reader uncovered an old post that appears to validate August Alsina's statement that A-list actor Will Smith gave him permission to pursue his wife, Jada Pinkett Smith, 4 years ago.

In an article first published on Dailymail.com in 2005, Will said he and his wife had reached an agreement to preserve their marriage while satisfying their needs at the same time.

The couple reportedly gave each other permission to sleep with other partners, as long as they didn't go behind the other spouse's back.

Will said to get your wife's permission first before you cheat. He added that desiring another partner is only natural.

"Our perspective is, you don't avoid what's natural," he said in 2005.

"You're going to be attracted to people. In our marriage vows, we didn't say forsaking all others".

"The vow that we made was that you will never hear that I did something after the fact. If it came down to it, then one can say to the other, 'Look, I need to have sex with somebody. I'm not going to if you don't approve of it - but please approve of it'."

The father of three said, even though he and Jada saw other people, he never fell out of love with her.

"I don't let a day go past that Jada doesn't feel like the Queen of the World," Will said.

"I make sure every single day that she knows how I feel about her."

Howard Stern dragged singer August Alsina for gossiping about his extramarital affair with actress Jada Pinkett Smith.

Stern, who returned to the airwaves on Monday following a 2-week vacation, said Alsina should stop talking publicly about Jada, who is still married to A-list actor Will Smith.

"What a f–king dickwad," said Stern on SiriusXM's The Howard Stern Show. "Dude, you got to f**k Jada Pinkett Smith. By the way, put me in that line. That girl is hot."

Neither Stern nor his sidekick Robin Quivers mentioned Alsina's name on the air.

"She f–king banged you. How nice of her,” Stern, 66, said of the 48-year-old actress. "I mean look at her."

Alsina, 27, said Will Smith gave him his "blessing" to pursue his wife. Will and Jada later confirmed the relationship happened during a "break" in their marriage.

Stern said Alsina put Jada in the uncomfortable position of talking about her infidelity publicly on her web series Red Table Talk last week.

"Now she's got to go on Facebook and sit here and explain herself to Will Smith and her kids and her mother," Stern said. "What did she do that was so horrible to this guy that he has to f–k her life up?"

Stern said he believed Alsina is jealous of Will and Jada Smith. "You know what beef is? 'I'm not famous -- I f*cked Jada Pinkett Smith,'" said Stern, who added, "I still don't know your name, a**hole. You did a bonehead thing."

Page Six reportedly exclusively that since their revealing discussion at the Red Table, the power couple flew to the Bahamas for some private time.

August Alsina is proof that men can be just as messy as women. He came for Keke Palmer when she inserted herself into his relationship drama with former love partner Jada Pinkett Smith, 48.

The drama unfolded after power couple Will Smith, 51, and Jada brought themselves to the red table to discuss her shameful infidelity with August 4 years ago.

August was a troubled, drug-addicted, mentally-addled young man with mommy issues. He fell right into Jada's trap after her son, Jaden Smith, introduced them and she offered to help August with his drug dependency issues (she eventually helped herself to his hot body).

Former singer and talk show host Keke Palmer (Strahan, Sara and Keke) inserted herself into the drama, tweeting: "The theme is boundaries. Everybody doesn't need to know your business, that's not fake it's honoring one's privacy."

She followed that up with:

"Protect your partner.
Protect your privacy.
Protect your peace."

Then someone in August's camp dropped this throwback photo on Twitter that shows Keke and August riding in a car together.

The user captioned the B&W image: "this you?".

Keke responded, "Yes girl. August was never my man lol. That's why you're still reaching to this day to figure out nothing."

But August was not having that. He reminded Keke how she lusted after him - and "got curved" by him - when he was busy blowing Jada's back out.

August, 27, insinuated that Keke, 26, had mental problems of her own, and that perhaps she was even stalking him.

"U absolutely right. I was NEVER ur man. You could possibly never shortie. It seems u mad u got curved, but ur "friends" r the reason 4 that. Dey showed me an endless thread of txt/pics of me dat u sent, wrry'd abt who i date & BEGGED me 2 not further disturb ur mental instability."

But wait, he wasn't done dragging Keke all over his timeline:

"Imagine not knowing how to mind the business that pay you. I catch all the subliminals. (Not just about today) & you can call me whatever you like, Mess is constantly inserting yourself in topics you have nun to do w/. Go play w/ ya MAMMY! Not me!"

"If you have something to say, say it w/ ya CHEST kids.
It's always very perplexing cause I real deal be showing people genuine love. Whole time that envy eating ya lil heart.
Anyway, NEXT!!"

Will Smith has been in a lot of pain for a long time. While fans assumed his marriage to actress Jada Pinkett Smith was rock solid, the couple was going through a rough patch due to Jada's extramarital affair with troubled singer August Alsina.

In a video clip from 2018 that resurfaced online, Will poured out his heart about love and happiness lost during Jada's emotional affair with August.

Facebook

"Love. I asked her what was one of the biggest revelations she had had about love. She said you cannot make a person happy. I thought that was a real deep idea," said Will.

"You can make a person smile, you can make a person feel good, you can make a person laugh, but whether a person is happy is deeply utterly and completely out of your control.

"I remember the day I retired. I literally said to Jada, 'That's it. I retire. I retire from trying to make you happy. I need you to go make yourself happy and just prove to me it's even possible.'"

Will was passionate as he recalled the love he had for Jada in the beginning: "We came into this false romantic concept that somehow when we got married we would become one. What we realized is that we were two completely separate people on two completely separate individual journeys and that we were choosing to walk our separate journeys together.

"But her happiness was her responsibility and my happiness was my responsibility. And we decided that we were gonna find our individual, internal private separate joy and then we were going to present ourselves to the relationship and to each other already happy.

"Not coming to each other begging with our empty cups out demanding that she fills my cup and demanding that she meets my needs.

"It's unfair and it's kind of unrealistic. And it can be destructive to place the responsibility for your happiness on anybody other that yourself."
 

Will finally got his chance to force Jada to confess her infidelities in front of millions of shocked viewers on Friday.

Will and Jada brought themselves to the Red Table on Facebook to discuss the allegations that she took advantage of drug-addled singer August Alsina to satisfy her own sexual needs.

Jada admitted in so many words that the affair happened -- but only after Will pressed her to admit her "entanglement" was actually an extramarital relationship.

The 51-year-old actor didn't let Jada slide the first time she mentioned an "entanglement" with the virile 27-year-old stud during a "break" in their marriage.

"This is your red table and you, like, brought yourself to the red table," said Will. "I think, um, you need to say clearly what happened.

"As far as what?" asked Jada, getting mildly defensive.

"You and I decided we were gonna take our space - and then what happened? asked Will with a smirk on his face.

An impatient Jada repeated: "Yeah, and then I got into an entanglement with August. That's what I said."

"An entanglement?" said Will, as they both cracked up laughing.

"A relationship," said Will, as 48-year-old Jada finally admitted she was romantically involved with August.

"I was done wit' 'cho ass. I was done wit' you," Will told Jada.

"You gon' get me back? I think you got me back," Jada laughed. "I think we're good on that, okay?"

To which her husband replied, "Okay, that's probably true."
