Settlement Reached in Fake Elin Nordegren Nude Picture Case

by at . Comments

As much as we'd all love to see Elin Nordegren nude, Irish magazine The Dubliner has paid the price for replicating an image of Mrs. Tiger Woods in the buff.

The wife of the world's greatest golfer won $183,250 and an apology from the publication that published an abusive article and a fake naked photo of her in 2006.

Trevor White, publisher of The Dubliner, conceded that the article was "cheap, tasteless, and deliberately offensive. It was also completely untrue."

All words from that description also hold true for the Jessica Sierra sex tape. Except for the "untrue" part.

No Elin Nordegren naked pictures here, folks. You'll have to make do with this bikini shot.

In a statement released earlier today, Nordegren welcomed the settlement.

"The false and deeply offensive article in The Dubliner magazine, with the accompanying photograph of another woman wrongly claimed to be me, caused great personal distress to me and my family," she said.

The beauty also said she'd donate the money to a cancer charity in honor of Heather Clarke, the wife of Northern Ireland golfer Darren Clarke, who died of cancer before the Ryder Cup tournament.

"This regrettable episode in our lives in no way detracts from the great love of Ireland that Tiger and I share," Elin Nordegren Woods said. "We look forward to experiencing the extraordinary warmth of its people and of our many friends in Ireland again in the future."

In related wives and/or mistresses of athletes posing naked, Kimberly Bell donated her Playboy money to no one.
