Tiger Woods' scorned wife has not left him yet, according to new reports, and it looks like she may not do so anytime soon, if at all! Are he and Elin making it work?

The golfer's marriage is "definitely not over," a source says, and that's because he realized he was about to lose everything when his cheating ways were exposed.

Elin and Charlie Woods

After Elin Woods threatened to take their children away from him and move back to Sweden permanently, Tiger fought to stop her - and he has, at least for now.

"Elin could have filed for divorce already but she hasn't," the source added.

"Of course, she has not indicated definitively that she planning on staying with Tiger, but what's happening now is crucially important."

What's happening now is Tiger is in sex addiction rehab in Mississippi.

The Woods' troubles are well-documented, but they're working it out!

While Elin is no longer wearing her wedding ring, she's canceled plans to file divorce papers after Tiger pleaded that he would do what it takes to make things work.

The threat of Elin taking their two young children and moving back to Sweden went a long way to convincing Tiger to go to rehab, where Elin has not been yet.

She may visit him there as part of his rehabilitation process, however. Tiger's program calls for her to spend seven full days of counseling with him in the facility.

After Tiger's affair with Rachel Uchitel was outed by the National Enquirer, he was linked to at least a dozen mistresses and his secret double life was exposed.

The question is whether he can rebound, and whether Elin will give him the chance. Do you think sex addiction rehab will work for him? Tell us:

While Tiger Woods struggles to repair his reputation, and more importantly his life, the intentions of his beleaguered wife, Elin Nordegren, are anyone's guess.

A new report today suggests that Elin is planning on running away to her Swedish homeland for good - and she wants to take the couple's two kids with her.

Fight For the Kids

Tiger recently headed to the Pine Grove Behavioral Health and Addiction Services in Hattiesburg, Miss. Woods, as we know, is being treated for sex addiction.

Elin has not been seen at or near the rehab facility.

Instead, sources say she has been plotting her escape from the Florida home she has been sharing with her cheating husband since their 2004 wedding.

Of course, reports that Elin Nordegren is in Sweden with the kids may be accurate in that she's there, but not in that she's planning never to return.

Have we seen the last of Tiger Woods' family as we knew it?

“She’s reminded daily of the havoc he’s wreaked on her and her children's lives, which is why she’s planning on staying in Sweden full-time," a source said.

"She wants to be near her family,” explains an insider. “Tiger has tried to reach her, but Elin won’t take his calls.” We're not so sure we're buying this report.

Ever since we first heard rumblings of Tiger Woods in rehab, it was part of a greater narrative: He'd undergo treatment and counseling to save the marriage.

According to a source with knowledge of the program he's in, Elin may well make an appearance there as part of Woods' rehabilitation and recovery effort.

Lastly, she hasn't divorced him yet. Wouldn't she have done so already if she planned to, given that the dude slept with 679 waitresses? It doesn't add up.

What do you think? Will sex rehab save Tiger's marriage?

A New York Times Magazine writer confirmed last night what rumors have suggested for days: that Tiger Woods is a patient at Gentle Path, a sex addiction program at Pine Grove, a private treatment center in Hattiesburg, Mississippi.

Benoit Denizet-Lewis, who has written extensively about his sex addiction, including his own, confirmed on his personal blog Monday that Woods is at the clinic.

In his book America Anonymous: Eight Addicts in Search of a Life, he notes that Gentle Path  "is directed by Patrick Carnes, one of the world's leading experts.

The official website for Pine Grove says that the Gentle Path program is "for those suffering from sexual addiction, relationship addiction and sexual anorexia."

Denizet-Lewis speculates Woods may have begun sex rehab treatment elsewhere - such as the Meadows treatment center in Arizona, where he was allegedly spotted.

What does sex addiction treatment entail, exactly? The reporter explains that the usual regimen includes group therapy sessions as well as family and couples therapy.

Tiger's wife, Elin Woods, has not been spotted at the facility, but that may change as his treatment progresses, at least according to the author's own experience.

"If Tiger and his wife, Elin, are serious about repairing their marriage," he writes on his blog, "then she will be spending some time in Hattiesburg with Tiger."

Another typical requirement: patients must sign a "celibacy contract" - a promise "not to have sex with anyone, or to masturbate, while in treatment."

In his book, Denizet-Lewis writes of other typical sex-clinic practices, including "empathy letters" for unfaithful married men and "cost letters" for their wives:

"Men who had repeatedly cheated on their wives had to write 'empathy letters' to them, which would never be sent but were read in group therapy sessions and usually criticized for not being nearly empathetic enough," he recalls.

On a similar note, sex addicts' wives "wrote their own, painful 'cost letters' - detailing how the sexual addiction had affected them - that were read to their husbands for the first time in group by another group member."

We expect Elin's will be a mile long - you could spend hours on just Rachel Uchitel. In all seriousness, we hope Tiger finds what he's looking for in rehab. He's obviously a troubled guy, and if Elin wants to give him a chance, that's her choice.

Will sex addiction treatment help Tiger Woods?

Tiger Woods reportedly entered rehab for sex addiction last week.

Numerous sources say he is receiving treatment at Pine Grove Behavioral Health and Addiction Services in Hattiesburg, Miss., and that it's strictly a solo endeavor.

The golfer's wife, Elin Nordegren, has stayed away from the facility and not seen her husband since he was admitted, as speculation continues about their future.

No need for her to visit. The P.I. tailing him should report back.

Tiger also has no roommate, at his request, during his stay at the facility, which is considered to be one of the best sex addiction treatment centers in the U.S.

REHABBING SEX ADDICT: If recent reports are true, Tiger Woods is definitely the biggest star in the history of sex addiction rehab. You missed out, Dr. Drew.

Tiger has been linked to at least 11 women in one of the most shocking and sordid sex scandals of all time. Rumors of other, unrevealed mistresses are still surfacing.

His affair with Rachel Uchitel was exposed by the National Enquirer and led to a huge fight with Elin Woods, which led to the revelation of the golf great's secret life.

While he has not been seen publicly since Thanksgiving, Woods is said to be pulling out all the stops to save his marriage against all odds. Can it possibly be done?

Maybe. Elin is believed to be still on the fence. Despite being photographed sans wedding ring, she has made no statements about the future of their marriage.

Rumors of Woods entering rehab follow reports last month suggesting he would do just that in January as a step toward reconcilation with Elin. So stay tuned.

Tiger Woods' wife, Elin Nordgeren, may or may not be planning to divorce the golfing legend, but sources say she's hired a P.I. to dig up everything on him.

Everything that a dozen mistresses haven't already told her?

Elin Nordegren's New House

Numerous reports have suggested that Elin hired divorce top gun Sorrell Trope to handled her multi-million dollar break-up from her philandering hubby.

Others have suggested that she is still unsure about whether to actually terminate their marriage. He won't throw in the towel and she's on the fence.

Will Tiger and Elin Woods' marriage survive?

Regardless, Elin wants to know what Tiger's worth - and doing: "Elin knows hiring a private investigator is a smart move," a source told the Mirror (UK).

"Her lawyers want to make sure she gets every penny she's entitled to." If she decides to end it, 'she has the future of their children to think about."

It turns out Elin Woods may not be the only ones curious about Tiger's finances, as there have been rumblings about Tiger's charitable foundations.

As if his image couldn't be tarnished any further, there may be an inquiry into whether he funneled hush money to mistresses from his non-profits.

Tiger Woods' wife may or may not be divorcing his cheating a$$, but she's definitely clearing her head - by going skiing thousands of miles away.

At least we think that the heartbroken Elin Nordegren is that far away from Tiger in the French Alps. No one has seen the guy in a month-plus.

According to the Sun (UK), Elin is seeking refuge in a posh, £5,000-a-night chalet as Tiger continues to live in seclusion at home in the U.S.

As she wrestles with her future, Elin Woods is holed up with her twin sister Josefin and five trusted pals, plus a hired French security detail.

Pals say Elin makes a point of being up at 6:30 a.m. every day and insists on being independent, as per "her traditional family lifestyle."

She has not been seen with Tiger Woods since the car crash outside their Florida mansion which exposed his loooong string of mistresses.

SKI BUNNY: Elin Woods is in the French Alps. Tiger? Who knows.

A family friend told The Sun: "Elin wanted to take her family and close friends away from the minefield Tiger has created by his behavior."

"She has been absolutely torn to pieces by what he has done to her. But she still sees a future with Tiger because of their beautiful children."

Will they reconcile? It's unclear. But "she told him she needed a lengthy time apart to reflect on how they might possibly salvage the marriage."

Tiger's whereabouts since the infamous crash have become a frequently-discussed topic in recent weeks, with little conclusive evidence to go on.

It has been claimed Tiger was seen with Rachel Uchitel - the first woman linked to him - at a party and in a club, but she vehemently denied this.

There were also rumors circulating that he had plastic surgery in Phoenix after Elin smashed his face with a golf club, but that too was debunked.

Florida State police officers examined the upper body of Tiger Woods for injuries during a meeting with them last month, according to TV station WESH in Florida.

Tiger lifted up his shirt, says the station, during the December 1 meeting so that the troopers could discern if he had any additional injuries after his SUV crash.

The meeting took place four days after the post-Thanksgiving car wreck that blew the lid off Tiger's cheating, one of the biggest sex scandals in sports history.

Despite rumors that she roughed him up, Woods' wife, Elin Nordegren, was not charged with domestic abuse, as police determined Tiger suffered only a fat lip.

This report casts further doubt on the rumors going around that a scorned Elin messed up Tiger so bad with a 9-iron that he needed plastic surgery on his face.

Elin Woods may have been on the warpath after learning of Tiger's cheating, but it doesn't look like she assaulted him with a golf club ... at least not too severely.

It is widely believed that an enranged Elin Woods chased Tiger out of his house with a golf club and smashed the windows of his car in the minutes before he crashed.

She was never charged in the incident, however. Tiger was issued a traffic ticket and that was that. He has not been seen by anyone (that we know of) since Dec. 1.

The plastic surgery rumor was likely fueled in part by Tiger Woods' total disappearance - and announcement of an indefinite break from golf - over the past month.

Elin is skiing in Europe this weekend, with Tiger nowhere in sight. Despite his cheating with at least a dozen mistresses, she is considering reconciliation with him.

Should she stay or go? What do you think? Elin should ...

In perhaps the craziest piece of Tiger Woods gossip to date, a respected sportswriter is claiming that the world's #1 golfer underwent reconstructive surgery.

After having his face broken by a golf club-wielding wife.

Furman Bisher cites, on his personal blog, inside sources telling him Tiger suffered a broken cheekbone and almost had his two front teeth knocked out.

He writes that the injuries are the real reason Woods has gone AWOL since his fight with Elin Woods and subsequent car crash right after Thanksgiving.

Bisher says a trustworthy journalist colleague sent him this information on Tiger, which he posted online to "present the picture in its clearest form."

However, the whole thing smells a bit like a hoax to us.

FORE: Did Elin Woods smash Tiger's cheating face with a 9-iron?

Don't get us wrong, we would not be surprised at all if Elin teed off on Tiger's face after what he pulled. But this scenario would be hard to conceal.

No police reports suggested Tiger's injuries were severe. Had they been, his wife likely wouldn't have been let off the hook after their investigation.

Moreover, for Tiger freaking Woods to undergo surgery without anyone knowing, during a global media firestorm no less, seems dubious at best.

But who knows. Bisher is considered one of the top golf writers, and goes into great detail about the attack and "cover up" that followed Tiger's crash.

His account states that Elin Woods drilled her husband in the face with a 9-iron after confronting him over text messages from Rachel Uchitel."

"At one point Tiger turned away to look at the TV, and as he turned back, Elin hit him on the right side of the face with the head of a 9-iron," he writes.

"When she struck Tiger, she made a huge gash in the right side of his face next to his nose (causing his nose to bruise some), and virtually knocking two of his upper teeth out, and breaking the bone on the upper right side."

Uchitel She's a Skank

MISTRESS #1: Rachel Uchitel's affair with Tiger Woods may or may not have led to a face-breaking, but it definitely shattered the golfer's formerly pristine reputation.

"Tiger ran scared as hell out of the house (which is why he had on no shoes) with Elin swinging the golf club wildly throughout the hallway to the garage."

Wow.

The source claims the first doctor Woods saw knows a cosmetic dentist and plastic surgeon in Phoenix who could make Tiger look as if nothing happened.

The Friday after Tiger was released from the hospital, he didn't return home; he boarded a private plane for Phoenix, where he stayed until last Wednesday.

Lastly, the insider says reports of Tiger and Rachel still hitting it are bogus, and while Elin has retained a divorce attorney, she has not filed any papers.

Whether this is true remains to be seen, but it would help explain why:

  1. Tiger successfully vanished, doing so before the scandal broke.
  2. The police were unable to interview Tiger following the crash.
  3. Why he fled his own house in such a daze that he hit a tree.
  4. Why he announced he is taking an indefinite break from golf.

What do you think of this story? True or tabloid trash?

After the holidays, Tiger Woods will check himself into rehab to seek treatment for addiction and prescription drug use, according to The National Enquirer.

We know, we know. You're not inclined to believe the Enquirer. But you didn't believe their story about Rachel Uchitel at first either, did you? Just saying.

The disgraced golfing great agreed to get help at an Arizona clinic after spending the Christmas holiday with pals as part of a deal struck with wife Elin.

He's been fighting hard to save his marriage. She is reportedly off to Sweden with their two children for the holidays, but she hasn't left him ... yet.

"Elin gave Tiger an ultimatum: seek treatment or forget about winning her back," says an insider. "Rehab is at the top of the list of things he must do."

"Tiger agreed, and he will be going into rehab in early January to treat his sexual compulsion as well as his use of the drugs Ambien and Vicodin."

Can Tiger Woods somehow escape from this rough patch?

Sometimes, as we learned from his crazy, Ambien-fueled sex romps with Rachel, Tiger's vices had a tendency to overlap. But that's all in the past.

"He has quit the PGA Tour to show Elin he is serious about changing his ways," says a Tiger source. "But Elin also wants to relocate to Sweden."

"She wants to have Tiger fire key members of his entourage to make a clean start. And, of course, he promised her he won't ever cheat again."

Of Tiger's dabbling in painkillers, the source adds:

"Before this blew up, Elin was already worried about the medication Tiger was taking ... she thinks it has contributed to the rest of his problems."

Can Tiger salvage his marriage? Or will Elin take off with the kids and half his money, which some sources are reporting is "100 percent" likely?

What do you think Elin Woods should do?
