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:
- Tiger may not bring any other females around their children.
- Elin can never publicly speak about his various mistresses.
- 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.
