Her impending divorce from Tiger Woods is about to become more heated if reports that Elin Nordegren will seek full custody of their two kids are true.
While she wants Tiger to be a big part of their children’s lives, she's said to be resistant to agreeing to joint custody, which the embattled golfer wants.
This behind-the-scenes development could turn the estranged pair's private dissatisfaction into a loud, contentious, public Tiger Woods divorce battle.
Elin and Tiger live currently separate lives in separate houses, approximately a mile apart, and despite close physical proximity, they are not speaking.
“They share the children, but the nannies drive the kids," a source said. "[Elin Woods] has her people communicate with him so she doesn’t have to.”
Tiger, who is supposedly not allowed to date, per lawyers' instructions, has been spotted with an Elin look-alike in recent weeks. That'll go over well.
Elin and Tiger Woods are already squaring off over custody.
The Swedish beauty recently took their two children to Sweden, sparking rumors that she may want to move back to her home country with the kids.
At the time, Elin and Tiger had informally agreed to a joint custody agreement as they try to hammer out the divorce terms before filing. But no longer.
“Elin isn’t saying that she’s moving to Sweden but she does want full custody now,” one source said. “She has changed a lot since Tiger’s cheating."
Things were going well, but "Since he returned to golf, she’s distanced herself from him. It seems to have killed their small chance at reconciling.”
Both Tiger and Elin have hired divorce lawyers but not filed papers. She is said to want $750 million from Tiger in a record-breaking settlement.
Whatever she gets, it will be a lot. “But the real fight is going to be over the kids,” the source says. “Tiger is not going to give up without a fight.”
