Report: Tiger Woods' Wife to Get $100 Million Divorce Settlement
http://www.kwgn.com/news/ktla-elin-divorce,0,5227703.story ^

Posted on 07/03/2010 11:16:51 PM PDT by kcvl

Despite reports that Tiger Wood's wife, Elin Nordegren, would get $750 million in her split from the golfer, it looks like she'll be getting a much smaller -- albeit substantial -- payout.

TMZ reports that Nordegren will get $100 million dollars. In exchange, she has agreed to a confidentiality clause -- meaning no books or interviews discussing her relationship with Woods or his alleged affairs.

The $100 million figure is much less than their pre-nup stipulated, according to TMZ, but Nordegren may have wanted to avoid a possible trial.

Nordegren will also likely receive substantial child support payments for the couple's two children, Sam, 3, and Charlie, 17 months.

There have also been reports that the pair's settlement calls for Tiger to keep any new girlfriends away from his kids.

Sam and Charlie are expected to live primarily with their mother, who may return to her native Sweden.

The divorce will be finalized sometime next week.

Sources connected to Tiger told TMZ, that the divorce is a “done deal except for the official filing with the court.” A source added that Tiger isn’t even worth the reported $750 million that she was asking for, but “she’ll do a lot better than she would have under the prenup.”

Either way, Elin is going to walk away with a handful of cash.

The reason Forbes says Woods can’t possibly be paying a $750 million settlement is because his net worth is about $600 million.

Writes Forbes senior editor Kurt Badenhausen:

“We’ve been tracking Tiger’s earnings since he turned pro in 1996. Last year he became the first athlete to earn a cumulative $1 billion through his income from prize money, appearance fees, endorsements and his golf course design business. Nike has been his biggest benefactor paying the world’s top golfer in the neighborhood of $250 million since 1996. The relationship has obviously bolstered Nike as its golf division reported annual sales of $638 million last week. Tiger’s annual earnings in 2010 will be down at least $30 million after sponsors like Accenture, AT&T and Gatorade walked away. He still earned $105 million over the past 12-months and ranks fifth on our recent list of the most powerful celebrities.

“Yet those earnings are before the tax man and his agents at IMG took their cut. And if you think Tiger made a killing in the stock market, think again. The S&P 500 is at the same level it was at 12 years ago. By our count Woods is worth $600 million and any divorce settlement is likely to be worth a fraction of current reports.”

Say what you will, but I do appreciate the way Elin has handled herself over the last few months and also the way she seems to be protecting her children from Tiger’s proclivities...

If the handful of cash is several million, she has it made. Let's say 20 million. A 5% return on that would be a million dollars a year. Even after taxes, you'd have to be a complete idiot if you couldn't live a ridiculously easy life off that.

I know I could do it. Hell I wouldn't know what to do with that kind of money. Buy myself a new truck, I suppose, and maybe go on a guided elk hunt in the Rockies.

Well now tiger is able to dunk his ++++++ anytime he wants.

So much for the title of “Father of the year”.

Don’t believe that we have heard the last of tiger and his women.

Tiger's game has noticeably suffered in recent times. Coincidence?

The theme from the film Chariots of Fire seems awfully relevant now: One's performance in life is inextricably tied to one's moral integrity.

Your husband is on the road banging one chick after another, time and time again, and you have NO CLUE that it’s happening?

If it’s fair to say that Tiger’s wife has been showing class and dignity throughout this ordeal, wouldn’t it also be fair to call her an idiot and a gold digger for hooking up with this guy to begin with?

This hot, Swedish knock-out blond didn’t marry famous, Caublasian Tiger because she was madly in love with him. She married him because he was Tiger Woods. Now, she’s getting what she set out for, tons and tons of money. Maybe next time, she’ll marry someone for WHAT they are, not WHO they are.

If she wants to look for sympathy, she can look in the dictionary between sh-t and syphilis, because she ain’t gettin’ any from me.

In addition, Tiger’s off the ‘roids and the Canadian doctor who helped him “rehab”. His bulkiness is noticeably reduced since the Torrie Pines Open immediately after which, coincidentally, is when the PGA began testing for PEDs.

” Nordegren will also likely receive substantial child support payments for the couple’s two children, Sam, 3, and Charlie, 17 months. “

Mrs. Woods: “ 100 million is okay, but how am I gonna support my 2 kids? “

Bon Mots, mauvais goût
Brevity is not always the soul of wit.
Wether it was a passing interest or not, he buttressed it with the force of 2 legal contracts (prenup + civil union), and a personal moral one (religious vow).
BTW the prenup itself was worth $750 million. Wow!!! that’s some major feminist world wallop power to turn 750 into 100!!!!!!!! Oh, wait....

Bon Mots indeed!

This woman was not a gold digger. She was introduced to Tiger by a mutual acquaintance. By all reports she is a good wife and mother and never cheated on Tiger.

Tiger on the other hand, is one of the slimiest, immoral characters to hit the national spotlight.

So which one of these people gets hammered by you? Nice work.

A true gold digger wouldnt settle modestly and quickly like she has , and wouldnt move out of the States with full custody either, IMO

She was a young famous model enamored with his glamour, but your depiction of her is unfairly cynical and a bit misogynistic. She has never sought publicity, and theone thing that is certain is that Tiger is the skirt chasing dog in heat who will continue to make boat loads of money off his declining talent. How ironic.

While your hero was whoring all over the world Elin was with the kids,

Tiger hates his kids. WHy would he even care?

Hopefully Elin finds a real man to marry this time not a worthless piece of garbage as a human being like Tiger is.

Every single person who takes Tigers side is a woman hating piece of trash.

Hopefully she’ll find a good man who wants to be a father. If Tiger loved his kids he’d sign away his rights since he has no interest in them.

IF he loved them he wouldn’t be treating their mother like this.

Nobody who loves their kids cheats on their spouse.

Millions of dollars are not going to make up for growing up without a healthy family. Elin is a beautiful woman. If she’s also a decent one, she could give all the money away, marry a nice man, and give her children a normal life.

Sounds like you are a man hating piece of trash.Your only hearing one side of the story HERS I am sure she isn't the innocent little adoring victim you and the news media are making her out to be but as usual the women will win guilty or not. How many men have been jailed because of what a women claimed to have been done to her only later discover it was a lie meanwhile the male is ruined because of the charge, I am not claiming he is innocent of messing around but their may have been reasons he did mess around maybe constant nagging,verbal abuse,physical abuse,etc etc.

If I'm not mistaken, Tiger was the one who was beaten (with a golf club). No charges were filed.

Imagine your reaction if Tiger had hit her with a golf club.

Tiger was abusing her every time he slept with one of those hosebags.

He was abusing her for years and the kids.

I just pray a woman hater like you isn’t married because you think Tiger’s whoring is acceptable. You have no morals.
