Tiger Woods and Elin Nordegren

When Tiger Woods married Swedish model Elin Nordegren in 2004, they seemed like the perfect couple. But in late November, the tabloids began claiming that Tiger was having an affair with Rachel Uchitel. And then on Nov. 27, the pro golfer crashed his SUV outside their home and was taken to the hospital with "serious injuries." Early rumors began flying that Elin confronted her husband about his affair and a physical altercation followed. But the story took an even more dramatic turn when several more women came forward claiming they'd had affairs with the married dad. Former reality-show contestant Jaimee Grubbs even had the text messages and voicemail to prove it, which Usmagazine.com released on Dec. 2. On Dec. 11 Tiger admitted to his infidelity on his Web site and announced he was packing away his golf clubs temporarily. "After much soul searching, I have decided to take an indefinite break from professional golf," he wrote. "I need to focus my attention on being a better husband, father, and person."
