The National Enquirer recently made the crazy claim that Tiger Woods and his ex-wife Elin Nordegren were back together.
The story was dismissed by the media.
But the publication has been right about Woods' personal life before. The National Enquirer was the first to report Woods' extramarital affairs back in 2009.
The company's been credible with other big stories, too.
From high-profile love children to shocking divorces, check out National Enquirer stories that actually turned out to be true.
2007: Dog The Bounty Hunter's racist phone call.
In 2007, the Enquirer reported that it had a recording of a racist phone call it claimed was popular television personality Duane "Dog" Chapman.
In the recording, Chapman used racial slurs to describe his son's girlfriend at the time, who was black. Dog later admitted to the slur and production of his popular A&E show was halted.
1994: O.J. Simpson's Bruno Magli shoes.
When Simpson's ex-wife Nicole Brown was murdered along with her friend Ron Goldman in 1994, footprints from Bruno Magli brand shoes were found at the scene.
Simpson denied owning that brand, but the National Enquirer published photos of him wearing the shoes.
2001: Jesse Jackson's love child.
In 2001, the National Enquirer reported that long-married activist Jesse Jackson had an affair and fathered a child. Before the issue went to stands, word got out and Jackson issued a statement confirming the story.
2003: Rush Limbaugh's painkiller addiction.
In 2003, the Enquirer alleged that conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh was addicted to painkillers, although he had previously decried drug use on his show.
Soon, he admitted to his audience that the reports were true and entered treatment.
2006: O.J. Simpson wrote a book called 'If I Did It."
The Enquirer announced in October 2006 that Simpson had written a book called "If I Did It," a hypothetical description of his wife's murder.
Simpson's lawyer denied the story, but a couple weeks later the book was announced. Due to backlash, it was pulled and was never widely distributed.
2008: John Edwards and Rielle Hunter Scandal.
John Edwards was once a promising vice-presidential candidate and devoted husband and father. Then, the National Enquirer reported that he had a mistress, Rielle Hunter, and a secret love child.
The story turned out to be true, ruining Edwards' career and earning the Enquirer a Pulitzer nomination.
2009: Tiger Woods' affair.
Golfer Tiger Woods had a squeaky-clean image, until the National Enquirer reported in November 2009 that he was having an extramarital affair with a woman named Rachel Uchitel.
Soon, several more women came forward to talk about their exploits with Woods and he admitted to being unfaithful. He and his wife Elin are now divorced.
