Elin-Tiger divorce ‘about to be signed’ … reports: Elin to get $750 mil

June 28th, 2010 by

Source: NBC Sports –This is the end, Beautiful friend, This is the end … it’s been 211 days since that fateful night in November when Tiger Woods revved his Cadillac Escalade to ramming speed and played pinball with a fire hydrant and a tree. Now, after all the speculation, recriminations, rumors, innuendo, sex rehab and Chinese computer simulations, it seems that the time has come for Tiger Woods and Elin Nordegren to put pen to paper and make this divorce official. Sorry … I promised myself I wouldn’t cry. Both the Chicago Sun-Times and Radar Online report today that the split is imminent, and could happen at any hour now. Radar:

“They’ve agreed on all the major points,” one source told us. “It’s all been worked out privately. Both Tiger and Elin are very close to finishing the negotiations and filing and signing the paperwork.”
Elin is expected to receive approximately $750 million in the settlement.
The Sun-Times is also using that $750 mil figure. Wow. What a payday. Well, school clothes are expensive.

Major issues which seem to have been worked out, according to the Sun-Times:

* Elin is demanding Tiger not bring any future female companions around the kids ”unless he is married to said person.”
* Tiger’s legal team was adamant about Elin agreeing not to do any tell-all or media interviews. She agreed to this. ”She is so private. The last thing she would ever do is revisit this horrible period in her life,” said a longtime Florida friend.
* Elin will have her primary residence in Florida, to keep the kids close to Tiger.
However, Elin wants to spend a significant amount of time with the children in Sweden, which is still a bit of a sticking point.

The marriage was on track to being fully repaired, according to Radar, until Woods returned to golf. Any chance at reconciliation quickly fell apart from there … and new allegations about Tiger sleeping with their neighbors’ daughter didn’t help. And, from NewsX Online:

It seems Elin is not satisfied with his effort to save his marriage; his lack of commitment enraged her when Tiger missed his daughter’s birthday on Friday at the U.S. Open.
“They don’t interact much at all anyone,” that source told RadarOnline.com. “The nannies take the kids back and forth between their houses. There’s virtually no conversation between Tiger and Elin but that’s an improvement from when all the conversation was angry.”
So this looks like the end of an era, folks. I have to say, I’m going to miss these crazy kids as a couple.
