Porn star Joslyn James: I don't want my face on Tiger Woods balls

By Gary Fennelly

Former porn star Joslyn James, whose real name is Veronica Siwik-Daniels, has lashed out at a Canadian company for making golf balls featuring images of Tiger Woods' alleged mistresses.

At news conference in Los Angeles Daniels, 39, said: "I have come forward today because I feel that it is wrong for a golf ball to have my picture on it, because golfers hit their balls with a lot of force."

"As a victim of violence myself, it bothered me to think that someone would be standing with a dangerous club hitting balls with my face on them," she said.

"I don't think that Tiger Woods would want my picture on a golf ball and I know that I don't."

Ms Daniels lawyer said: "We have pointed out that encouraging golfers to use clubs to hit a woman's face that is portrayed on a golf ball is a dangerous and reprehensible act because it encourages violence against women."

Creator Mike Caldwell, 63, owner of Creative Classics, said the claims were frivolous and the allegations have "no basis at all."

Caldwell said he has been swamped with orders for the collection - claiming to have sold $40,000 worth of balls in three days.

"It's been crazy. Over 2,000 people from 17 countries have placed orders. One order from Japan was for $15,000!"

Caldwell sells a set of 12 for $44.95 and a 'display' set for $50.

"Those are for the person who wants to put their balls on the mantel," he said.
