Elin Nordegren Woods, the scorned wife of disgraced golfer Tiger Woods, has decided to leave him after Christmas and is talking with a divorce lawyer.

That's according to largely un-sourced tabloid reports coming out of the UK, and has not been confirmed by either Woods. But would you blame her?

Vintage Elin Nordegren

Sources say Elin wants the holiday season to appear normal for the couple's two children, Sam and Charlie, but will separate from Tiger shortly after.

Despite reports that Elin Woods moved out and is already back in her native Sweden, she remains in Central Florida with the two kids as of this posting.

Elin is said not to be in a huge rush to file divorce papers and that money is not a prime concern. Nor should it be, she'll be getting plenty regardless.

"I'll be taking the kids and a few hundred million, thanks."

The revelation of Tiger Woods' long list of mistresses caught her completely off guard and it’s a "raw" situation, according to friends of Elin Nordegren.

Amazing as it seems, Elin supposedly had no idea Tiger was cheating and the stress of the situation has caused her emotional and physical stress.

Unconfirmed rumors are also circulating that Tiger is still in touch with mistress Rachel Uchitel, the first of Tiger's many affairs to be publicly identified.

It also appears that Tiger, who just announced an indefinite break from golf, is in some type of counseling after Elin angrily insisted he see a therapist.

Will she stay with him? Should she stay with him? No matter how lucrative he makes the prenup, it's hard to imagine her giving him a second chance.

According to Jaimee Grubbs, the most vocal of Tiger Woods' mistresses, the golfer never mentioned he was married while pursuing her. That totally makes it okay!

"He never mentioned his wife," Grubbs tells Extra, adding that by the time she learned he was married to Elin Nordegren, "we were already in a relationship."

"I wouldn't have pursued him if he didn't pursue me. When he did, I just figured he was single and didn't think to ask," Jaimee Grubbs, a cocktail waitress, added.

She figured he was single? He's the most famous athlete in the world! She probably expects us to think she thought George Clooney was an average guy, too.

When the subject of Woods' personal life did come up, it seemed mostly like he regarded his family as a hindrance, at least according to his text messages.

"Hey, sexy, I can't come this week. Something came up family wise," Woods wrote. "I hope everything is fine," replied Grubbs, "would have liked to see you."

"We will make this happen," Tiger texted, adding clandestinely, "Don't text me back till tomorrow morning. I have to [sic] many people around me right now."

What? Tiger was married? You don't say! Crazy!

Despite shamelessly trying to cash in by outing Tiger Woods' voicemail last week, Grubbs pretends she's sorry, saying "I couldn't describe how remorseful I am."

"If it wasn't me, it was going to be other girls," she said, and ain't that the truth! "I did care a lot about him ... I didn't do it purposely to hurt [Elin Woods]."

Jaimee Grubbs insists what they had was a real relationship:

"I knew we had a respect between us, that we cared deeply for each other and we did very much trust each other. Nothing about the relationship was fake."

Grubbs described her first kiss with Woods, whom she met in Las Vegas in mid-2007 and slept with at least 20 times in the 31-month affair that followed:

"We were sitting to eat and we were play fighting and we had our first kiss ... It was very gentle, very sweet. It wasn't quick, but it wasn't a makeout session."

That's refreshing to hear. So is the fact that they kept their "intimate relationship... very sacred. It was something between the two of us that I grew to love."

Tiger Woods' mother-in-law, Barbro Holmberg, is in stable condition at an Orlando hospital after being taken from his home earlier Tuesday morning.

Medics responded to a 911 call at Woods' home and Holmberg, the mother of Tiger's wife Elin Nordegren, was admitted after suffering stomach pain.

Sheriff's spokesman Jim Solomons said a 911 call from Woods' home at 2:35 a.m. EST Tuesday and transferred it to Orange County Fire Rescue.

Officials say Barbro Holmberg is in stable condition but few other details are known at this time. Woods' agent, Mark Steinberg, did not comment.

According to WESH-TV, Barbro refused transport, but was later listed as an advanced life support patient and taken on a stretcher to the hospital.

Barbro Holmberg, Elin Nordegren's mother, will reportedly be fine.

What treatment she needed is not clear, but advanced life support is a term often used by medics/EMTs for resuscitation that extends beyond CPR.

The strange thing about Holmberg being transported via ambulance from Tiger's house to the hospital (the same one he went to two weeks ago)?

Reports surfaced yesterday that Elin Woods moved out on Tiger after his many affairs, and despite his many efforts to hold his marriage together.

Is that even true? Was she at Tiger's house with her mom trying to work things out with her cheating husband? So many questions unanswered.

UPDATE, 4:29 P.M. EST: Barbro was released from the hospital Tuesday afternoon and is now recuperating at Woods' home in Windermere, Fla.

More details to follow as the story develops ...

Firefighters in Orange County, Fla., responded to a medical situation at the home of Tiger Woods this morning after a 911 call was received at 2:36 a.m.

And you thought this story couldn't possibly get any crazier.

A radio log showed an adult woman was transported to Health Central Hospital in Ocoee, Fla., via ambulance. The patient initially refused transport.

She was later listed as an advanced life support patient.

Several sites have reported that Barbro Holmberg, the mother of Tiger Woods' wife, Elin Nordegren, had arrived in the area to be with her yesterday.

It is not known if she was the patient, but video from the hospital showed a middle-aged woman (Barbro is 57) being removed from an ambulance ...

Stretcher

A woman was taken from Tiger Woods' home by ambulance today.

A black Cadillac Escalade was seen leaving the hospital shortly after the ambulance arrived. Its tag was similar to the one involved in Tiger Woods' crash.

Woods owns a second black Escalade, for what it's worth.

The mysterious 911 call and hospitalization comes on the heels of reports that Tiger's wife moved out of the Isleworth, Fla., mansion she shared with Tiger.

The number of Tiger Woods mistresses we can identify has reached seven, while some sources say the actual number may be at least 10 if not higher.

Several celebrity news  sites said Elin Nordegren Woods had enough and moved out of the couple's $2.6 million home and into another nearby home.

That home is also owned by Woods.

UPDATE: ESPN has confirmed that the hospitalized woman was in fact Barbro Holmberg, Tiger's mother-in-law. More details to follow shortly ...

Tiger Woods' wife Elin has moved out, according to reports.

This development follows the explosion of Tiger Woods' mistresses, which currently number seven (and counting) and have ruined the golf legend's reputation.

Elin Nordegren's New House

Elin Nordegren, who wed Tiger in 2004, has had enough, and moved out of the $2.6 million Windermere home, neighbors and other sources close to Tiger say.

Radar Online reports that Elin is still living nearby, but in another house.

It has not been confirmed that she will end her marriage to Tiger for good, although if she had any self-respect, that would certainly be the logical decision.

Tiger Woods with his wife, Elin. He cheated on her a lot.

The week before last, Tiger’s affair with Rachel Uchitel was revealed. Several other women then came forward to tell their stories of sex with the married star.

He crashed his Cadillac SUV into a fire hydrant and tree in a bizarre one-car crash November 27 after arguing with his wife about his extramarital activities.

Since then, his marriage has (understandably) been on the ropes.

Tiger and his camp are trying to keep Elin’s status under wraps and hope she will come back to the house - and to Tiger, despite his rampant cheating - ASAP.

It was reported last week that Elin's prenup with Tiger may be renegotiated to guarantee her many millions more if she stays. But at what point does it matter?

Money's great, but this wasn't an isolated incident. Can Elin really remain Mrs. Woods after a duplicitous Tiger led this double life and nailed so many bimbos?

You tell us ... Elin Woods should:

The way Tiger Woods and his many affairs dominated the news last week, you knew Saturday Night Live would go there in some way, shape or form.

The pleasant surprise? It was actually pretty funny.

Appearing in press conferences on SNL's version of CNN's The Situation Room with Wolf Blitzer, Tiger tried to vaguely apologize for his "transgressions."

But he only dug himself a deeper and deeper hole.

With Kenan Thompson doing his best Tiger and beautiful Gossip Girl star Blake Lively a bit more convincing as the scorned Elin Woods, the SNL skit offered a new take on what went down between the golfer and his wife after his car accident ...

Tiger Woods and Elin Nordegren had a prenuptial agreement in place when they tied the knot in 2004. But how do the shocking events of the past week impact it?

He's not buying silence from Rachel Uchitel - but what about from his wife?

Fight For the Kids

Amid reports of numerous affairs by Tiger, the couple is undergoing marital counseling, but they're also negotiating. Big time. And Elin is in the driver's seat.

According to reports, Tiger Woods' prenup would have guaranteed Elin $20 million after 10 years of marriage. But she could get a $5 million payout instantly.

That much deposited into an account she alone controls, plus a promise of at least $55 million more to stay with him two more years, are the rumored sums.

Quoting "a lawyer familiar with the couple's negotiations," The Daily Beast says the prenup was shortened to seven years and the payoff upped to $75 million.

YES, HE CHEATED: And yes, he'll be paying for it.

But it's a negotiation, rather than the scorned wife merely bilking her cheating hubby for all he's worth, so Tiger stands to gain something from this, too.

There's also a behavioral component to the new prenup: Elin Woods must "be a dutiful wife in showing up with him at social events and in public, and sign a nondisclosure form that will prevent her from ever telling her story."

That's the key factor. She'd stand to become filthy rich if they ever split up (assuming she wants to), but could never breathe a bad word about Tiger.

To date, there's no evidence that Elin Woods has ever been anything but the perfectly dutiful wife - until she went after him with a golf club, that is.

Tiger would like nothing more than to portray domestic calm to the world, and if that means giving Elin tens of millions of reasons to do so, so be it.

But should she? Or dump the cheating bastard? Vote below!

Elin Woods should ...

Jesper Parnevik was perhaps best known on the PGA tour for wearing funny hats. He's now known for uttering the funniest quote on the Tiger Woods scandal.

The golfer who introduced Tiger to his wife, Elin Nordegren, who used to be Parnevik's family nanny, hopes she "uses a driver next time instead of a 3 iron."

LOL. No arguments here.

In all seriousness, the Swede said he feels badly for his former employee in light of Tiger Woods' affairs with multiple women that were exposed this week.

"I'm kind of filled with sorrow for Elin since me and my wife are at fault for hooking her up with him," he said. "We thought he was a better guy than he is."

Jesper Parnevik is no fan of Tiger Woods after he cheated on Elin.

Earlier Wednesday, Woods acknowledged in a statement that he let his family down with unspecified "transgressions" that he regrets with "all of my heart."

"I have not been true to my values and the behavior my family deserves," Woods said on his site, adding that his "feelings should be shared by us alone."

Tiger and Elin Woods are currently undergoing marriage counseling. He's certainly got his work cut out for him. Even Parnevik feels partly responsible.

"I would probably have to apologize to her," Parenevik said, joking in reference to Nike's slogan that next time, Tiger should think "Maybe just don't do it."

JUST DO IT: Tiger Woods' slogan with Nike - and women.
