Tiger Woods Divorce: Already Getting Ugly!

by at . Comments

No papers have even been filed yet and things are already getting nasty in the Tiger Woods divorce, with his lawyers accusing Elin Woods' of leaking to the media.

Elin's lawyer, London-based Walter H. White, sent an email to his staff April 19, saying he'd "been accused by the other side of leaking information to the press."

"While we do not believe that anyone in the firm has been responsible for the leaks, we are aware that this is the second time that we have been so accused ... "

Tiger's top priority is to keep things quiet regarding the divorce, and to hammer it out fast. But his legal team insists Elin's is leaking info, deliberately or not.

White urged his staff to avoid public conversations relating to all firm activities after "TMZ the web news service discovered that we represent Elin Nordegren."

Those dastardly, no-good celebrity gossip sleuths!

Team Tiger is already pissed at Team Elin.

The email notes that Elin's sister, Josefin, works at the firm, boasting "To some extent it is a surprise and a tribute that it has taken so long to figure this out."

Interestingly, White was repping Elin in January, just a month after Tiger's car crash, but before the couple appeared to be making progress (which later fizzled).

In an email dated January 12, White wrote, "I am writing to advise you that we have been asked by Elin Nordegren to assist her in her legal circumstances." 

White goes on to say: "The firm has assigned a dedicated team to work closely and confidentially with Elin and Josefin [Nordegren] in order to fulfill this mandate."

Lawyers for both Woods are trying to agree on property and custody issues - she's reportedly fighting for the kids, as is Tiger - before filing divorce papers.

We'll see if they can do it quickly and/or quietly as they'd like.


I think that this divorce has been in the works for some time now. It seems to me that after Elin agreed to put the divorce on hold, Tiger had hoped Elin would change her mind but she has not. It seems that during that time the attorneys for Elin have been working out all the details for the divorce. I also think that Elin has been in favor of sharing the children’s custody with Tiger and that she and the children will be living in Sweden most of the time, after all, Sweden is Elin’s country and it is there where they have the love and support of family and friends. Tiger has the resources to visit the children anywhere they live. I wish Elin and her precious children all the best!


@jewell: You're a giant dumbass. Elin has a high school diploma.
She is due what their prenup says. Since Tiger cheated not once but many times, even while she was pregnant, I think she should get more. He should have to pay legal fees, as well as for her & her kids security until they are age 18.

May 14th, 2010 11:41 PM I'm quite glad to see Elin go. Tiger deserves much better and he can find that person right here in the United States. Elin did not do anything to enhance Tiger. All she did was make him two ugly children and I have no doubt he will take care of them. But for Elin he should have never married her in the first place. There are too many educated, brilliant women out there to enhance his life. So give this little mummy's goldigger her money she signed up for and send her back to Sweden to date her little pool boy. And Elin take some of that money and get your High School Diploma.


Elin shouldn't be fighting with him about the kids they are his kids too. People now should see she was with him for the money not that she love him. Like I said before she never really love him. An a none thing. If she hit him that night she should be thanking him for what he did with the media. Making her look good. And I hope with the meeting with the lawyers they should bring that up. And let see how much she get then.


It will be the best outcome for Tiger, for Elin to move on. I wonder about her. If she was so biiter about what Tiger did, why didn't she just file for divorce in the first place. All she is worried about is MONEY. Kick her back to Sweden. Tiger will have access to his children, legally she cannot stop that. Bye Elin.


She better watch out or he can accuse her of attempted murder which is far worse than cheating.


Cheetah, good one, I agree. Too bad.......really, it's just too bad, so sad. But he's a cheat, which makes him a liar, and a man with no honor. And a man with no honor is no man, poor poor Tiger. You really did it this time Bud, hahahahahahahahaah


Tiger is a great golfer: Marrage is about love not money,not golf.Tiger knew other women before he married Elin. Why he did'nt marry them? These so called sweethearts were nohtning more than skid-row huslers out to make a buck.Why do you think they
call their bedroom partner a Trick. Look at the million of dallars he already
paid out,and there more to come. At some point in his life he needs to grow-up.
Wake-up America just because you have a hot set a balls don't make you a good man,much less a good husband. Elin is doing the right thing get the hell out. Suppose Tiger catch aids what
then? Go down to the Aids clinic and take a look at those good looking people
in there. I had a good looking wife who I had to divorce on account of her hot
ass. It's not hot anymore, it's cold.The guys want whistle at her now. The only thing save me was a divorce. Run Elin


Elin is out for revenge and has no act of forgivness and woman who doesn't speak is the most dangerous or unpredictable woman in this case Elin is dangerous.


should tiger not change his name to cheetah as it seems more appropraite in the circumstances


Litsa, if Elin hired a lawyer in January, she probably did it just in case Woods didn't keep the agreement. I don't read too much into it. She probably didn't trust him, and who could blame her?!? If my husband treated me half as badly as Tiger treated poor Elin, I'd want a divorce as quickly as possible so I could go on with my life and forget about him. There's no excuse for his behavior. None. He is a man without honor, and honor is everything.
