TIGER'S NOT OUT OF THE WOODS YET

TIGER'S NOT OUT OF THE WOODS YET Golfer's wife wants half £370m fortune and sole custody of kids.

By James Desborough, 03/01/2010

THE betrayed wife of Tiger Woods has taken another chunk out of the love rat golfer - a whacking great slice of his huge wealth.

Tough Swedish model Elin Nordegren revealed to friends how she extracted dear revenge when they asked what the shamed golfing superstar had given her for Christmas. . .

She coolly declared: "Three hundred million dollars, thank you very much!"

Just two weeks ago we revealed how Elin vowed to drive Woods out of her life with divorce and a 50 per cent slice of his $600 million (£370m) fortune. Now it looks like she got her way AND piled on the agony by:

BARRING Tiger from seeing their two kids on Christmas Day.

FORCING him and his mum to POST the children's Santa presents instead.

Tiger is a POS. When will the PGA test him for steroids and HGH?

Well, she’s getting her money, but she shouldn’t use the kids a weapons. Not matter what Tiger did to HER, he’s still their Daddy, and that’s all they understand, at this point.

HE broke the vows!Big time. And not just once, repeatedly, premeditatively. She is supposed to just sit back and take it?

I’m sure all the people who think she was ok to try and kill him, think it’s great to keep him away from his children on Christmas, and ok to say that what she got or wanted for Christmas is $300 million.

I have yet to see anything but rage and greed here.

The desire for sole custody is related perhaps to a desire for greater child support payments?

The only way to work out marital problems is sincerely. It’s not supposed to be a game of Pinata.

News Of The World??? Ok, yeah. I believe every printed word.

Besides, when a divorce takes place, asking for half of the money and full custody is always the first bargaining ploy in any high stakes marriage. It’s simply a negotiating tactic.

Admittedly we are all just guessing here - but I think the sheer number of women he is linked to shows a much deeper psychological problem with Tiger - this isn’t about marriage vows or sex, this is a serious emotional problem and it might even be worse than what we do know. I’m not sure it is wrong of Elin to keep the children away from him - they need to figure how what is wrong with him and not just accept this as a sex addiction or affairs.

$300 million to Congress is chump change. Those idiots did not major in mathematics. In fact, I wonder if they even now the difference between $300 and $300 billion. Based on the insanity and idiocy we have seen over the last few decades, I am pretty sure they do not. It is the Club of Corruption.

On her side - she appears to have been a faithful wife and a good mother. He obviously cheated on her multiple times and humiliated her on a global scale.

On his side he has Nike, a team of very good attorneys, an agent, loads of sychophantic and drooling fans plus a lap dogs sports media, etc etc. The balance of power is in his favor.

I do not blame her for playing hardball. His kids? Where was he when he was screwing hookers in Vegas, his own bead, the church parking lot, hotels rooms etc etc. Where were his kids? Why was he not with his kids instead of screwing hookers?

Tiger is a POS and probably a steroid/HGH user. She is playing hardball and he deserves it. He expected her to take it with the pre-nup. I guess she was a little smarter.

My guess is that she stays around and they live apart for $300 million for the next 5 to 10 years. If they can make the fake marriage look semi real then he can make a lot of money and he gets his reputation back somewhat.

The PGA & fawning Obama/Tiger loving media gets their HGH/steroid cheat back and everyone is happy.

Yes it is, but it did buy a certain Senators vote in LA, that was the point I was making.

In the end, they all seem to be whores, it's just a function of, how much....

Oh please, I agreed totally with your observations until you decided his wife should “keep the children away from him until they figure out what is wrong with him”.

I’d say the only one in the relationship who has engaged in violence is the wife. Everyone thinks it’s so funny or justified that she almost killed him.

If adultery is wrong, so is attempted murder. Maybe the kids shouldn’t be with the one who almost killed dad.

Absolutely right!!! Go Elin Go!!! I love watching the liberal newscasters & sportscasters whine & moan & wring their hands about po’ Tiger. Personally I was sick of watching any golf tournies that he was in anyway, since every other word, photo or TV shot was about Tiger. If he was white, there would not have even 10% of the media slobbering that goes on for Tiger.

Could be she got $300MM in exchange for "working it out." If she decides to divorce in the future, maybe she gets another chunk of what he has left.

"For better or worse, till death do we part (or betrayal). So much for vows!"

**********

Here's some vows:

Matthew 19 (New International Version)

9 "I tell you that anyone who divorces his wife, except for marital unfaithfulness, and marries another woman commits adultery."

[snip]

17 "Why do you ask me about what is good?" Jesus replied. "There is only One who is good. If you want to enter life, obey the commandments."

18 "Which ones?" the man inquired.

Jesus replied, " 'Do not murder, do not commit adultery, do not steal, do not give false testimony,

19 honor your father and mother,' and 'love your neighbor as yourself.'"

*****************

A tough line to walk, to be sure, or so it may seem. Which is tougher in the Long Run?

He was taken to the hospital unconscious. Car window smashed, car crashed. Apparently she lied to the police that she used the golf club to rescue him.

I exaggerated?

He was zonked out on Ambien and alcohol, crashed the car and popped his face on the dash.

Yes, you exaggerate and in a very hysterical way.

BTW, the neighbor said Tiger was snoozing in the street. He was not unconscious.

Been there and have had it done to me. Ironically the actions destroyed the relationship between my son and his mom. I got custody when he turned 12. Tiger deserves an ass kicking from his wife. If she had an ounce of decency, she would not use the children as a weapon in the fight.

Ambien poster child - I guess it worked!
I’m surprised we haven’t heard he was “sleep-driving” from the Ambien and Elin was just trying to wake him up.

I find it unlikely that Elin would receive that huge sum of money from him and not have a provision to keep mum about it.

If she stays with him, she’s an idiot. Knowing my husband had been with as many women as Woods has would kill any love I had for him. It’s just gross. It shows how little respect he has for his wife, their marriage, his children and his family. Money would be no consideration whatsoever for me.

The medics deemed his “snoozing” to be of a nature that his breathing was compromised. Tiger was caught text messaging with a girlfriend. He was chased out of the house and smashed uncoscious, hius car crashed. Why do you pretend he was asleep in a drug stupor?

What we have here are rich people behaving badly, both of them. Don’t have mistresses, don’t smack your spouse in the head with a golf club. Both are wrong. She’s lucky he survived and that he didn’t press charges. “He was texting with a chick” is not a criminal defense. It’s not even a crime, whetreas assault is.

Not every attempted murder succeeds, that’s why they have a crime called attempted murder. If you want assault ok, assault is nothing to be proud of.

I guess we have some folks who believe Tiger Woods should be executed. Now he can’t be a father. He should lose all his money. It’s ok to hit him with golf clubs.

This judgmental tsk tsking is the same psychology that leads to liberal policies, socialism, etc. That’s why I comment against it.

I have no need to decide who should raise Tiger Woods’ children. Also have no need to take sides on taking his money, which unless I missed something, he earned every penny of.

Too many people here think he should be maimed, impoverished and now he should lose his children. And all this of course is to be accomplished through lawyers and the courts. He should not have afffairs, but the rest is not conservative thinking.

I don’t agree with using kids as weapons, but then again I don’t agree with much of what the “other half” do and think is normal and acceptable.

This gal knew he was a dog, don’t kid yourself, she was in this for the $$ from day one. Now I’m sure she didn’t expect to wind up so publicly humiliated, but I have no doubt she knew he ran around.

I am sure he promised to stop when they wed, but no way in hell she honestly did not know he had ran around on her during their dating period.

Two petty selfish people, those kids have no chance of being anything but pawns between them from now on.

look, we are all joking around and making our opinionated statements but to say our views are not conservative is just wrong. As a conservative mother, if my husband had endangered my life (yes from the number of women he's been with and the plethora of STD's out there, he endangered her life), ruined our marriage and caused emotional harm to my children, I would be so angry I would be doing whatever I had to do to protect my children. As a mother, that is my job - to keep them safe both physically and emotionally.

You obviously look at it from another angle - fine - but please don't assume my view isn't conservative. I never said he should be living on a street corner begging for money - he earned the money but she is his wife and mother of his children - just as many women are stay at home moms - their job was to raise the children and provide a home for them, as a family. Sure Elin has a little easier time of that with the wealth - I don't have servants and nannys - but my job involves making everything run in this household so my husband can relax when he is not working - he doesn't view his income as his - it is ours.

We will see how this all plays out - I don't think Tiger's career is over - but his reputation will never be the same. He will get to see his kids, when he can fit them in between bimbos.

Hahahahaha if you believe that you must have voted for Obama.

Let me play role reversal with you shall we...

If a pretty blond white chick was laying on the ground beaten and bloodied with a black man standing over her with a golf club, and telling some story about breaking a window to get her out, while she’s bleeding from a head wound that just happens to match the 9 iron in your hand... you think he wouldn’t have been cuffed and in the back of a squad car inside of 0 minutes?

Please. There is no doubt in my mind what she was using that golf club for and why Tiger tried to get away from it.

Tiger is a louse, but the idea this woman is a saint is laughable. She was clearly wronged and humiliated but she also is well known for her temper and their fights, long before this incident.

Emotional Harm? What emotional harm, these kids are too young to know anything more than mommy is mad at daddy, and that’s at best what the older of the two MIGHT be able to grasp, beyond that, they were not emotionally harmed.

Now, keeping them from seeing their father out of petty anger and spite, that is emotionally wrong. Like it or not, he is their father, and in spite of how much of a horndog and louse you or I or anyone else may find Tiger to be accusing him of emotional abuse of his kids is rediculous.

The biggest losers in nearly every divorce are the kids, and clearly these two are going to be nothing but pawns in this game and its despicable and wrong for her to do that, no matter how wronged she may feel.

Regarding Tiger, Elin, and the Golf Club:

If someone (even a family member) starts trying seriously to beat me with a golf club ... or actually succeeds in landing one or more blows with said club

a) I'm going to shoot him/her

b) I'm going to get no-billed, if it gets that far.

Assault with a deadly weapon is a felony, and legitimate grounds for self defense with lethal force. Elin is lucky she isn't dead or in prison ...

I agree. While not excusing Tiger’s behavior. I find it curious that there are always numerous posts about Tiger’s mental health and never a word about the mental health of someone who would get so violent as to cause so much physical damage to someone. Sounds like a lot of toxicity on both sides.

I’m all for the value of stay at home moms. In this case, she’s very rich and even the “paltry” millions she would get under the prenup would make her wealthy, along with huge child support.

And if they do divorce, do you think she’s going to marry a truck driver next time? You’ve seen her, plus she’s famous and was married to a billiuonaire. I think she’s going to do quite well for herself.

If she hadn’t gotten physical, she would deserve only sympathy for what we know about this situation. I really don’t like the attitude that physical violence bya woman is ok if she was wronged.

When this type of “heat of passion” defense was accepted, it was used by jealous husbands who shot their wives. No one should be in favor of bringing that back. Your husband cheats on you, divorce him or work it out. You don’t get a freebie physical assault.

Just my thoughts.
