Rachel Uchitel says Seeking Arrangement ditched her as a bad habit as the dating site’s spokesperson in the wake of the Matt Gatez scandal … this is what she is claiming in a new trial.
Tiger woodsThe ex-mistress filed legal documents claiming that Seeking Arrangement terminated her contract as the company’s spokesperson barely 3 months after the deal began … claiming it only happened because the company got scared after the Florida congressman was linked to the dating service.
In documents obtained by TMZ, Uchitel says that she and Seeking Arrangement reached a 6-month deal in February to be the spokesperson for the company. She says the deal provided $ 20,000 a month in return for de-stigmatizing the sugar daddy concept.
Uchitel says she did her job really well … and got paid the first few months. But, then came Gaetz’s investigation by federal authorities into allegations he paid young women for sex. with a minor woman … linking him to Seeking Arrangement and claiming he is a member of the site.
Uchitel says she had no connection with Gaetz, and the big bosses of Seeking Arrangement told her to remain a mom to Gaetz during interviews. She says she was told the scandal was “a very serious crisis for the company”.
She says the CEO asked her to get 4 young women who used the site to make videos attesting that the site was not exploiting them. She says she followed orders, but was then told the company was in the process of rebranding and that required her contract to be terminated.
Uchitel says that 6 days after her contract was terminated, the company came back to her and told her that she would pay her in full if she signed an NDA. Uchitel told them to pound some sand, probably because she didn’t want to be part of the Gaetz scandal in any way.
She is suing Seeking Arrangement for the balance owed, as well as damages for tarnishing her reputation. She also wants money for emotional distress.
