It's been eight painfully drawn-out months since Tiger Woods and Elin Nordegren's marriage began to crumble, but sources say the couple is finally ready to sign the divorce papers. And wait until you hear how much Elin is walking away with!
According to RadarOnline, the negotiations of the divorce settlement got off on the wrong foot, but became much more civil when Nordegren switched to a less aggressive attorney. We can't imagine what the more aggressive lawyer was demanding (Tiger's golf clubs? His right hand?), but Elin's new lawyer has allegedly scored her an impressive payout: $750 million dollars. That's a lot even for Tiger Woods, whose net worth is valued at $900 million (and whose income has already been depleted by his loss of endorsement deals). Lest you think that Elin's lawyer stopped there, the Chicago Sun-Times claims that Nordegren has added an unusual condition to the settlement: Woods isn't allowed to let their kids hang out with any given girlfirend "unless he is married to said person." Ha! Now we know she feels about his taste in women...
Woods is also making a few meager demands of his own, namely that Nordegren will not grant interviews about the separation or pen a tell-all. The final point of contention allegedly has to do with custody: Nordegren, the primary parent, wants the family to spend a large percentage of their time in Sweden, while Woods would prefer his children to be close by. (At the moment, Nordegren and the children live only one mile from Woods in Florida.) We think Woods may be fighting a losing battle there; Nordegren has a whole extended family in her home country, and living in Sweden might give her children the opportunity to lead a more normal life. Regardless, we're happy to see Nordegren coming out on top for once. And we're even happier that we may never have to hear about another one of Woods' gross text messages ever again.
Do you think Elin Nordegren should be allowed to let the kids live in Sweden? Chime in below!
