Posted on 07/02/2010 2:04:48 PM PDT by OldDeckHand
TMZ has learned ... Elin Nordegren will walk away from her marriage with Tiger Woods with approximately $100 million.
As one source with direct knowledge of the terms of the divorce tells TMZ, "She'll be getting close to $100,000,000."
There have been reports Elin would score $750 million, but we have confirmed that figure is wrong. Indeed, as we first reported, Tiger is not even worth $750 million. We're told his net worth is somewhere between $500 and $600 million.

Is it worth it? I have to say, yep, it's probably worth it (presuming of course she didn't "catch" something)
Whew.. Poor gal.. only a hundred million..
If she needs money , we could use nanny help with the poodles .
She only nets $100M minus lawyer fees and 50% tax by Sweden on net proceeds. Her final take is most likely $40M. She should have taken 50% plus 50% of his proceeds for the next 10 years.
They live in Florida for tax reasons.
Going back to Sweden is not an option it would seem.
Only $100 mill? Sorry babe, our wedding is off! Sincerely, Rc!
She had a prenup and was not entitled to 50% I think he gave her 2-4 times that much to keep quiet.
Tiger is a weenie but only in America can two groups of people win a lottery consistently, lawyers and wives. Switch genders on this story and the uproar would be deafening.
While I'm not entirely at all familiar with Swedish tax law, it would be surprising if they made expatriates pay taxes on foreign earned income, as most countries don't (other than the US). Even still, this isn't income, this is a division of marital assets and they aren't taxable in any jurisdiction I'm familiar.
What would be taxable are any capital gains realized from the liquidation of jointly held property, like real estate. All things considered, I think a nine-figure lump sum settlement is smart move, any way you cut it. And remember, there was an existing prenup, so she didn't have unlimited negotiating power in the divorce.
Does she get to spill the dirt on her ex-dirtbag?
Why is Elin Woods always referred to as Elin Nordegren?
Did she not take his name when they were married?
I wish her all the best. As for making derogatory comments about her having worked as a nanny - that is honest labor.
Is this just for her? Is child support/nanny salaries separate from this?
FYI - Lawyers cannot take contingency fees in divorce cases (or criminal cases). They were paid by the hour — at high rates, to be sure, but nowhere near a real piece of the action.
This speaks to the division of marital assets, which is wholly separate from child support. That number has not yet been leaked, but it's also not difficult to estimate - someplace between 20-25% of Tiger's gross monthly income, per Florida law.
Tiger failed. His wife, and the mother of his children, didn’t. I see no reason why she shouldn’t receive 90% of their current and future worth. I especially approve of her insistence that only a Mrs. Tiger Woods, and not his girl friends, may have contact with their children. Given Tiger’s pathology, it is thoroughly appropriate and in the best interest of the children. I am sick of seeing men damage their families just because they can.
I don't know why. She is Elin Woods. That is her legal name as the police reports indicated from her "incident". It's also the name she uses (or used) to introduce herself. My wife and daughter met her at the Memorial Tournament several years ago, and she said she was "Elin Woods".
Probably had her name changed back to her maiden name at the divorce. It is an option for all divorcing women.
Yes, but the media has generally referred to her as "Elin Nordegren" from the moment this all started, from the night of the crash and well before all this divorce business was being discussed. I think that is what sodpoodle was referring to.
He is the one who broke the marriage vows.
Not in Sweden.
