Her divorce is final and she's ready to talk. Elin Nordegren breaks her nine-month silence in an exclusive interview with PEOPLE magazine.
"I have been through the stages of disbelief and shock, to anger and ultimately grief over the loss of the family I so badly wanted for my children," she says in the magazine's latest issue, out just days after her split from Tiger Woods was made official.

...and, richer too.
It's a little surprising Tiger's lawyers didn't get an iron-clad non-disclosure into the settlement, but then again, he was negotiating from the ultimate position of weakness. He might be lucky it only cost him $100M.
YEah, that’s interesting. You would think that they would have offered a lot more if she would have agreed to keep her (lovely) trap shut.
This may be splitting hares (hairs?), but wouldn't she be richer if she had stayed married.
Theoretically speaking, she would have retained access to 100% of Tiger's money as opposed to 50% or whatever percent she ended up with.
Heh. Either way, it would be more than she could easily spend.
She just dissolved the corportation for a wholy owned one . . . no one to answer to.
Oh. That generally means she's mentally unstable and while possibly fun in small doses, generally a pain to be around.
Yes, that's theoretically possible. Of course, we have no idea what the actual financial dynamic was inside that home - Tiger has a reputation as a cheapskate, so we really have no clue what kind of "allowance" she was on, but I'm sure she probably didn't have want for anything.
There was a prenup, so even in his death, she may not have inherited all of it or even $100M. We'll never no for sure, unless one of them talks about it.
Lastly, the receipt of matrimonial assets in a divorce are not taxable. This is a common misconception. Whatever Elin received in the split, is hers to keep in it's entirety.
Golddigging with tendencies to assault others.
Whatever. Cash your checks
It isn’t like it is a secret. I’m sure there are a few intimate details that haven’t already made it into the news but I’m also pretty sure they can’t be much more embarrassing that what has already been put out there.
Everyone would be miserable.
Cut bait and move on to another fishing hole.
This may be splitting hares (hairs?), but wouldn’t she be richer if she had stayed married.
I don’t think she ever intended to stay married to this cash tiger. The prenups look like a lease agreement, which it may have been.
An accurate diagnosis, Doctor.
Wife- "Whats this in the Enquirer?"
Tiger- "Er, um, those jeans sure do make you look FAT!"
Not a good way to start the day.
Sometime in the afternoon Tiger was sitting on the couch, in the living room.
Tiger will never win another tournament.
Har! You just described the woman I’m stuck with! (2 Kids to raise)
I love Elin. Proud of her! She made the right decision. I hope no one portrays her to be anything other then a very nice person who didn’t deserve anything that happened to her. My husband and I met her back when she was nannying for Jasper Parnevik. She was so sweet. She deserves everything penny she gets out of this divorce with Tiger.
“but wouldn’t she be richer if she had stayed married.”
100 million? That’s quite enough, and she’s rid of that hound dog.
a good way to get the PETA goons after you
Yeah, a couple hundred million bucks in the bank and a set of Tiger balls in your Visegrips will do that for a girl.
Lay down with dogs, rise up w/golden fleas.
“Whatever Elin received in the split, is hers to keep in it’s entirety.”
Here in Texas (a community property state), everything he earned from the date of the marriage was hers to begin with, so she’s just keeping what’s hers.
