Skip to comments.Tiger Woods and Elin Nordegren Mulling Leaving the Country
Posted on 12/09/2009 7:44:07 AM PST by traumer
Tiger Woods and his wife Elin Nordegren have avoided contact with the public by hiding out in their family home in a Florida gated community since news of Woods' alleged affairs broke two weeks ago.
Now a source close to Nordegren's family tells Pop Tarts that the two are considering putting even more distance between themselves and Tiger's cheating scandal.
The insider says the couple is planning to leave the country very soon.
Elin and Tiger are planning to temporarily move closer to Sweden, possibly to a private island, to get away from it all, the insider said.
The news comes after Elins mother Barbro Holmberg, visiting from Sweden to assist her daughter during this trying time, was rushed to Floridas Health Central hospital Tuesday morning after suffering stomach pains. She was released later in the day and reportedly returned to her daughter's house.
Despite the number of women coming forward to claim affairs with Woods, Nordegrens family is hoping that the high-profile couple will somehow work through the scandal, the insider told Tarts.
Elins family couldnt be more devastated, the source said. But they want [Tiger and Elin] together for the kids sake.
The family's efforts to keep it together come as more news on Tiger Woods' alleged promiscuous behavior comes to light.

Pls. take me with you.....
Why would Elin take Tiger and all his baggage with her to Sweden? I think some time away from him would be more appropriate. (As in, how can she stand to look at him??)
All the way to the search box.
Maybe putting Tiger on an isolated island might help keep his wood in his pants.....remains to be seen.
Tiger is a steroid crazed mack daddy pimp. If I were Elin I would tell him to stay away but tell him I want $50 million a year or a $400 million lump sum settlement. His PR people and sponsors want them to stay together lik eteh Clintons “marriage.”
He’d only be there for a month anyway, since the golf circuit begins in mid-January and he’s on the road again!
Please make it go away.....
I’m sure there’ll be plenty of frisky waitresses and hostesses at their next private Idaho.
Translation: Tiger is tired of American women and wants to “divert embracity” by engaging in more international pursuits.
She wants to be close to her investment.
Low profile...won’t stand out in Sweden a bit.
“...how can she stand to look at him??”
Maybe she just sees dollar signs. What’s the pre-nup say?
They’re now working on a post-nup. She’ll be well taken care of.
I have never considered Pop Tarts to be a very reliable news source. Even when put in the toaster and set to high, I can't get any decent information out of them.
I always do search before posting... what else can I say?
I think it was the brilliant musician Todd Rundgren, who stated that “when the s**t hits the fan,you know it’s time to get back to...”
Well, so far Tiger seems to have Popped about 10 Tarts.
This takes 'buying her a rock' way past the Kobe Bryant level.
I’d be going with my children, a LARGE portion of Tiger’s bank account, and leave him by himself.
I don’t care how famous he is, or that fact that women are throwing themselves at him. If he loves his wife, there is one word that would save him—”NO!” The rest is baloney!
I love that album, A wizard, a true star.
Smart move on Tiger’s part . . . . . . . . there aren’t any blondes in Sweden.
I am going to guess that the above statement comes from Tiger and not from his wife AND Tiger.
She needs to kick him out of the mansion and keep it along with the yacht, cars, three dogs, bank accounts, and should he insist on the two children, he can have them. It would make her life much easier.
Have I missed anything?
There are factors that MIGHT not have been considered in all of our speculation re. the PERSONAL lives here.
Elin is Swedish- perhaps she is far more liberal re. sex than most American women would be?
Perhaps she knew all along he was cheating and they have an
‘open’ marriage that was just fine as long as nothing made the press about his other women?
This may be a case of extreme embarrassment about things going public more than personal pain.
Look at the British royal family- the Diana/Charles thing in particular. EVERYONE knew he had horsefaced Camilla on the side even as he planned a big wedding. Mistresses were to be accepted and ignored by the wife. Faithfullness is not an expectation when you’re rich and titled- discretion is, however.
Might be the same case here. In Sweden such a marriage might be commonplace and cause no moral scandal whatever.
I think the NAACP should raise their voice - there is no african-american among the mistresses.....
OMG, too funny, glad I had swallowed my coffee before reading!
Why would any woman want this guy, he is definitely a flawed individual and needs lots of work in therapy. The kids story makes me sick, what kind of father behaves this way knowing he has small children. BS!
I think you're right. European society is far more casual about adulterous behavior. Sounds like a good move.
Memo to Tiger: just don't move in next door to Jesper Parnevik.
I would only delete the offer of the children to this guy. As a former nanny and mother of two, she certainly loves children, especially her own.
I agree. Making excuses for him only enables him.
What are you doing in William J. “Cold Cash” Jefferson’s Freezer?
Maybe two, three at the most. Allegedly, the rest are all piling on for profit and fame.
These jokes really write themselves, don’t they?
Doesn't need to be seen. ;)
She is so laid back about sex she popped him in the mouth with a golf club.
Doesn’t it make sense? She isn’t acting like a mortified, furious wife. It’s either desperate love and a desire to hold on to him no matter what, or not as devastating as we middle class, conservative American types would see it were it us.
Women have compromised and put up with cheating, lying scumbag husbands- even abusive husbands- for far less than Elin has going. If she wants to stay married to a high-profile billionaire no matter what, she will put up with anything. If she KNEW the score before she married him and figured the compromise of fidelity was worth the lifestyle, etc then there is no victim here except the children who- thankfully- are too young to really comprehend all of this.
Hey- maybe it wasn’t a marriage for love as much as for image- anyone consider that? Not uncommon either.He gets a stable homelife image, legitimate kids and freedom to do what he wants as long as he’s not stupid( which he was, lets face it) and she gets to be Mrs Woods, has his children and tons of $$ for the rest of her life as well as a lavish lifestyle.
Could be we’re applying our ethics to people who don’t share them - or that its going to take a bit of time to break up with the minimum of damage all around.
I don’t even know how you can recover from 1 affair, let alone 12, is that what the number is up to? I’m not seeing how any level of trust could ever be recovered there..
Mr. Lion Cheetah Woods, don’t let the screen door pop your ass on the way out.
“don’t move in next door to Jesper Parnevik” ??
I’m sick of reading about all this crap. The mainstream media, which unfortunately has the most viewers, is always into the stuff it shouldn’t be into, and blind to what it should be into.
I admit I was giving her an “out.”
(I’m sorry. I can’t keep from laughing as deranged as this situation is. No one can make up a story like this.)
Elin was Jesper's nanny when he introduced her to Tiger. He has been quite public in his disdain for Tiger.
The average European views America with disdain, particularly on cultural matters.
Not coincidentally, wealthy elites like Tiger view us minions with disdain, wanting us to buy their products while they laugh their asses off at us dummies.
Tiger will continue to make big bucks from golf and endorsements, but he'll never get over this. My household has had a ban on Nike products for years, and this latest situation is confirmation.
My 20 YO son told me a few days ago that I should give Tiger a break. I asked him, "so it's ok with you if I cheat on your mother?"
The crickets are still chirping.
His endorsements are being re-negotiated as we speak. They can really “dollar down” Tiger for some time to come.
I cannot believe she would still be with him, astounding ...
Last night I heard he was holed up on his yacht, though I don’t know if there’s any truth to that. He may also be living at the second home a mile from the one Elin and her family are staying at. I cannot imagine her and her family allowing him to stick around. He’s a bit outnumbered!
You have overlooked that there is a pre-nup agreement which might provide incentive for her to stay married to him longer.
How about that you don't know how to search.
