Despite the quote-unquote amicable discussions that resulted in finalizing his divorce, Tiger Woods and Elin Nordegren were not exactly cordial yesterday.
“Tiger was sitting down when Elin walked in the room,” a source said. “Publicly they didn’t say a word to each other. They didn’t even look at each other.”
At approximately 3 p.m., Elin Woods was heading back to her Orlando-area home after finalizing the split in Bay County Circuit Court in Panama City, Fla.
Both Woods currently live in Orange County, Fla., hours away. In Florida a couple is allowed to file for divorce outside of the county where they reside.
Why they chose Bay County is unclear, but the divorce petition says the marriage is “irretrievably broken” and that a settlement was reached July 3-4.
Elin Nordegren (formerly Elin Woods) is free of Tiger.
The Martial Settlement Agreement they signed also includes a parenting plan, and both Tiger and Elin attended the required four-hour parenting class.
"The parenting plan is in the best interests of the children," the papers read. Married since 2004, they are parents to Sam, 3, and Charlie, 18 months.
The court documents also say that Elin Woods will hereby revert to her maiden name, Elin Nordegren (her full name is Elin Maria Pernilla Nordegren).
Causes of the divorce are not stated, as Florida is a no-fault state. But the papers say they have lived apart since Woods' November 2009 car crash.
"The marriage between the parties is irretrievably broken" is all we're going to get. No sordid golf-club wielding details or Jaimee Grubbs voicemails.
