She’s been close to the troubled sportsman since they were children and has taken legal action.
Speaking to the Evening Times on a visit to Glasgow yesterday Kirsty, 34, said: “It was all speculation and it was incorrect.
“It was very upsetting. I knew I was being talked about and that’s why lawyers were involved.
“But what you do in this job is you get quite strong because you know things will come at you.
“And I’ve always had the support of family and friends. We’ve all had the rubbish thrown at us but you deal with it.”
Kirsty wouldn’t say whether she was currently in touch with Woods, but she did admit to one past infatuation.
“I’d love to have been a professional sportswoman and I regret I didn’t carry on playing tennis,” she says, smiling. “You know I fancied Andre Agassi something rotten.”
Earlier Kirsty, the one-time face of Sky Sports and occasional lads mags cover girl, was tearful in Glasgow’s St Enoch’s Square after watching percussion group, Drumatik, which is made up of disabled adults and young people.
“I’m sorry,” she said. “Scenes like that affect me -- even more so since I’ve become a mother.”
The group is funded by the National Lottery and Kirsty is the Scottish face of the Lottery’s new promotion, the Britain Has Balls Tour.
It aims to highlight some of the 40,000 grants given out over the past 15 years in Scotland, with Lottery players raising £25million a week for good causes.
The groups to benefit include Street dance company Y Dance andScottish Cycling.
“When I see groups like I have today it makes me emotional,” said Kirsty. “It’s about a realisation I’m very lucky, I’ve got a fantastic job and two lovely kids.
“And then you see people who are not as lucky as you. But the emotion also kicks in when you appreciate that funding really does make an impact, that the money hasn’t disappeared into the ether.”
Edinburgh-born Kirsty, who is engaged to rugby star Paul Sampson, admits her perspective on life has changed since the birth to her second son, Jude, in January.
Kirsty, who also has son, Oscar, 3 said: “Last year I was very ill, but I had time to work out the important things in life.
“I’m not a politician but I know we need to be helping projects such as this.”
