One of the burning questions surrounding the Tiger Woods divorce settlement is where Elin Nordegren and the couple's children will live once the split is final.

That's still unclear, but it appears as if she will call the shots.

Elin Nordegren and Her Children

Sources familiar with the divorce say Elin Woods will have control over where they reside, opening the door for her to potentially settle in her native Sweden.

The agreement was supposed to be finalized by the end of last week, but there is still one document being negotiated - presumably pertaining to the kids.

No wonder Tiger's been so frustrated and distracted lately.

CAUSE FOR CELEBRATION: Tiger's almost single at last! Woo!

As for the property settlement, we reported last week that Elin will get right around $100 million, somewhere between 1/5 and 1/6 of Tiger's net worth.

In other words, he's worth between $500-600 million.

All those earlier reports of her getting $750 million? Probably a little over the top, considering he doesn't even have that much. Still, $100 million. Wow.

As for whether Elin actually moves to Sweden permanently with the kids, it's uncertain. But the divorce deal gives her "wide latitude" in figuring it out.

What do you think she should do? Leave for good?

Her divorce all but a formality, Elin Nordegren Woods will very soon walk away from her six-year marriage with Tiger Woods with approximately $100 million.

The completion of Tiger Woods' divorce papers came to light this week after months of speculation over what eventually became a question of when, not if.

A source with direct knowledge says the payout is $100,000,000.

Originally, we had heard that Elin would score $750 million from the golfer, a figure reported by the New York Daily News, MSNBC, the UK's Sun and others.

That number is way, way off ... not that a hundred mill is shabby.

JUST DO IT: Elin Woods will be rid of Tiger, but those Nike royalties remain!

No idea where they got that amount, but it would be hard to pay out that much, given that Tiger Woods, for all his sports godliness, is not even worth that.

His net worth is somewhere between $500-600 million, Forbes says, and they also had a prenup. However, $100 million is more than it would have allotted.

Way more. Guess she had leverage ... a lot of it. Her biggest chip, aside from his 847 mistresses, was confidentiality - the cost of her silence proved steep.

Sources say Elin Woods will also receive child support, but the specific amount is unclear at this time. The $100 million is not speculation, though - it's done.

Not only is she set for life, but Elin can take solace in the fact that Rachel Uchitel scored a paltry $10 million from Tiger to keep her mouth shut. Sucker!

They say silence is golden. In this case, think Fort Knox golden.

We reported yesterday evening that the Tiger Woods divorce is final, or nearly final, and that his estranged wife Elin could receive a $750 million settlement.

Today, additional sources say that while nothing has been officially filed, lawyers for both sides are close to reaching an agreement for "about $700 million."

That mammoth sum, which entails Elin Woods keep all details of Tiger's life and cheating scandal confidential, has grown as negotiations have progressed.

Elin has balked at the confidentiality clause, and thus driven up the price, not because she has a strong desire to tell all, but because it's a bargaining chip.

Smart woman.

HARD BARGAIN: Elin Woods sure is driving one.

While Tiges really does not want his wife to give any interviews or write a book about their life together, child custody has also been a contentious issue.

"Elin does not want Tiger to have female friends around when he has the children," a source tells People magazine. "She will not give in to anything less."

As far as who gets the kids when, Tiger has asked for one weekend a month, but with frequent golf travel, some flexibility may be required from both.

Instead of taking one weekend a month, he could have Sam and Charlie for a long stretch, then not again for a few months, dependent on his schedule.

For her part, Elin is tired of the media scrutiny and wants to relocate to Sweden, where she hails from and eventually wants the children to be educated.

She has an estate in the Stockholm archipelago complete with a beach, dock, sauna and four separate houses, near family and longtime school friends.

If Tiger agrees to that, she will also likely keep a second home in Jupiter, Fla., convenient to Woods's nearly completed $80 million Jupiter Island estate.

MSNBC, Fox News and the UK's Sun are reporting that the Tiger Woods-Elin Nordegren divorce is final, with only a filing in Orlando County Court remaining.

"Everything's signed. Elin is ready to file for divorce at Orlando County Court," says an inside source. "She expects to sometime in the next seven days."

The settlement Elin is to receive, which has become the subject of much debate in recent weeks, is reportedly valued in the neighborhood of $750 million.

Yes, three-quarters of a billion dollars, believed to be the biggest payout of a celebrity divorce ever. There are conditions, however, according to reports:

  1. Tiger may not bring any other females around their children.
  2. Elin can never publicly speak about his various mistresses.
  3. Elin gets full custody of the kids but they share legal custody.

That means Tiger will share decisions about the kids, and as such, Elin will not be able to permanently relocate them to her native Sweden anytime soon.

Tiger's main caveat, though, was that she shut yer yap - for all eternity.

Tiger and Elin in happier, pre-car crash times.

A pal said: "Tiger's main fear is her telling her story after he's rebuilt his reputation, sending him back to the gutter. The price of that sum is her silence."

"Complete confidentiality. No interviews, tell-all books, or TV appearances about this for the rest of her life - even if Tiger dies first - or she'll lose the lot."

Basically, Rachel Uchitel, Jaimee Grubbs, Joslyn James, Devon James and the dozen other hoes we know of ended up costing Tiger about $37.5 million per.

One report suggests that Elin Woods ended up with double the sum she sought after her lawyers determined Tiger is worth much more than $1 billion.

Her friend explained: "Elin's legal team have done a great job digging up all sorts of assets." We would have to say that's the case if the sum is correct.

While it should be noted that The Sun is a British tabloid, the $750 million figure has been reported by more than one source over the past few weeks.

Let's just say we wouldn't bet the under on $500 million anyway.

For Tiger Woods and Elin Nordegren, it's no longer a question of whether or not they'll remain together, but whether or not they'll remain civil toward each other.

The pair reunited for the first time in months this past weekend to throw a birthday party for their daughter Sam, but were just barely civil with each other.

Elin Nordegren and Her Children

According to sources, the party for Sam (whose birthday was June 18, during the U.S. Open) was scheduled for 4 p.m. Saturday and was to last two hours.

Tiger didn't show up until 4:55, however, and he brought his office manager Kathy and another woman with him, making Elin Woods understandably angry.

Fortunately, "they put aside their differences for the good of their daughter when a big birthday cake rolled in," a source familiar with the situation revealed.

RELATIVELY AMICABLE: Tiger and Elin's relations could be better ... and worse.

"Clearly this was Tiger trying to make it up to Sam. He wasn't there on her birthday so he wanted to have a party for her and be there," the source added.

Despite the strained relationship between them, "Elin went along with it. Despite their differences they both want to do what is best for their children."

In any case, Tiger and Elin spending time together for Sam's party was a rare event, even though Elin lives in a rented house approximately a mile away.

He's already playing the field again, supposedly. Whether those rumors are true or not, things have passed the point where reconciliation seems possible.

Sources close to the pair say that Tiger and Elin are about to sign a divorce settlement and that it's almost official, although nothing has been signed yet.

Tiger Woods has another reason to celebrate.

A day after published DNA test results proved he did not knock up Devon James, it looks like his divorce is about to become official, according to reports.

Elin Nordegren Mansion

His legal separation from Elin Woods is imminent, as “They’ve agreed on all the major points,” one source reported. “It’s all been worked out privately."

“When they first started negotiating the divorce, it was acrimonious. Things are now very civil, at least in terms of getting the divorce taken care of."

While the terms of the settlement are unclear, “Both Tiger and Elin are very close to finishing the negotiations and filing and signing the paperwork.”

KISS OFF: The terms of his divorce from the ol' ball and chain nearly finalized, Tiger Woods is almost free to live the dream - play golf and holla at some hoes!

According to Radar Online, Elin Woods switched attorneys a little while ago and that took much of the aggression and anger out of the negotiations.

The couple is no longer (or barely) on speaking terms after attempts at reconciliation fizzled earlier this year around the time Tiger returned to golf.

Things got ugly fast as Elin talked about moving to Sweden with their children, but later backed off. Both Tiger and Elin met with lawyers this week.

The divorce terms are being worked out privately and when everything is done it will be filed in court, and “that day is almost here,” a source says.

I'm totally on ...

Tiger Woods and Elin Nordegren met separately with divorce attorneys Tuesday for the second straight day, fueling speculation that a split may be imminent.

Elin met with a divorce attorney Monday and Tuesday at her rented house in Orlando, while Tiger met with his legal team on both days well, sources say.

Elin Nordegren's New House

“The divorce is moving ahead,” said an insider, noting that the meetings are the result of negotiations speeding up. “They are trying to work out the terms.”

One of the main topics being discussed is custody of their two small children, which "has led to negotiations about where Tiger and Elin are going to live.”

Right now, one scenario being talked about seriously is both Tiger and Elin Woods moving to South Florida – where they would live separately, of course.

The Woods' divorce is coming, it's just a matter of time.

Tiger has a huge oceanfront mansion on Jupiter Island that is nearly finished, and according to reports, Elin Woods has indicated she wants that house.

“Tiger really wants to be near his children,” the source said, discussing that proposed plan. No word if he also wants to be close to his alleged love child.

Elin previously floated the idea of moving back to her native Sweden with the children, a scenario Tiger Woods is not in favor of for several reasons.

It is rumored that Elin is seeking a $750 million settlement in all, following failed attempts to salvage the marriage in the wake of an epic sex scandal.

Elin participated in Tiger’s sex rehab therapy, and things appeared to be progressing well for a time, but Tiger's return to golf quashed the reconciliation.

Elin viewed it as sign he was not serious about changing, and perhaps she was right, as Tiger missed his daughter’s birthday Friday at the U.S. Open.

The star vowed he would never miss another birthday when discussing the pain of not being there for his son’s birthday when he was in sex rehab.

Guess this Tiger can't change its stripes that easily.

With wife Elin Nordegren in China with their kids, Tiger has been playing some golf and relaxing with his friends in his home near Orlando, Fla.

Oh, and hanging with that beautiful Elin look-alike again, according to new reports suggesting that the beautiful blonde clone was in his cart.

That's not an attempt to sound dirty, she was supposedly in a golf cart with him is all - the second sighting of Woods with the same woman.

Take this story for what it is - no photos, no named sources, and pure hearsay - but it's worth noting that similar reports have surfaced lately.

Tiger, who has reportedly been told by his lawyers that there is no dating allowed, and his new "friend" didn't touch but seemed affectionate.

Tiger Woods: Secretly moving on with Elin 2.0?

“He hit some balls on the driving range while she sat in the cart,” an eyewitness said. “Then he took a break and sat next to her in the cart."

“They were chatting and obviously comfortable with each other. She was laughing at everything he said and he looked completely relaxed."

Eventually friends joined Tiger and he played a round. As for his mystery girl? “She hung around,” said the witness. “It looked very natural.”

News of a Tiger Woods divorce is expected any time as he and Elin are leading separate lives and are barely on speaking terms, if at all.

Chances are dalliances with Elin look-alikes won't help matters.

Tiger Woods' wife Elin is reportedly seeking full custody of the couple's two children, but may be leaning toward remaining in South Florida, according to sources.

Elin and the kids are currently in China visiting her brother and she’s rumored to be mulling a return to her native Sweden - permanently. But perhaps no longer.

As divorce talks have progressed, Elin Woods has indicated a desire to stay in Florida, albeit in the southern part of the state, a few hours away from Orlando.

Elin may be seeking up to $750 million in a divorce, and wants full custody of the children, according to a source close to the situation, causing serious tension.

Her desire to move to Sweden, while understandable, could create big problems with Tiger as he wants to see his children often. Thus the South Florida idea.

Will Elin Woods stay in Florida to speed the divorce along?

“She has good friends in South Florida,” one source said of Elin recently. “She has spent time with them this year and she’s interested in moving to the area."

“It could be the perfect solution. If she has any chance on Tiger not fighting her on seeking full custody, then he’s going to want to see his kids regularly."

If Elin stays in the area, i.e. a few hours away by car and even less by plane, "that would be much easier and could avoid big problems with the divorce.”

She's been creating a life without Tiger, traveling regularly and rarely interacting with him - the two are not on speaking terms despite living a mile apart.

When and if the divorce is put on paper, expect it to be done fast, discreetly and with a big payout, much like Tiger used to treat his bevy of mistresses.

I'm totally on ...

Elin Woods and Tiger Woods are still officially married, but clearly living separate lives as he resumes his golf career and his estranged wife travels the globe.

It's unlikely they could be much farther apart, literally or otherwise. They aren't on speaking terms and she's in China visiting her brother (8,058 miles away).

Tiger Woods' Kids

On Friday, Elin packed up the couple's two kids, Sam, 1, and Charlie, 2, and left Orlando to visit her brother Axel in Shanghai. She'll be there at least a week.

As for Tiger, he was back on the golf course competing in the Memorial Tournament in Ohio. He's a respectable three-under, but tied for 26th as of right now.

"I haven't played," Woods told ESPN. "This is my 10th round of the year. Usually you're like that in January. Here we are in June. I need competitive rounds."

What was he doing in January? Oh, yeah, the sex rehab thing.

Elin Woods is clearly focusing on life after Tiger.

Despite Tiger's astonishing double life, the couple was seemingly trying to reconcile and even making progress, spending a lot of time together early in the year.

Things grew icy between the pair prior to Tiger's return to golf at the Masters, though. They have spoken since, and she may be moving to her native Sweden.

The impending Tiger-Elin Woods divorce is still speculative - neither party has filed any papers - but reports suggest that it's about to get far more contentious.

Elin has decided to go for full custody of their two children, not agreeing with the joint custody offer Tiger reportedly seeks. Things could turn ugly pretty fast.

She's also shown reluctance to abide by the confidentiality Tiger wants, leading some to think her quiet dissatisfaction with him could eventually become public.
