Everything is obtainable, according to Thomas Crown, perhaps even after you have admitted to your partner that you have had affairs with 14 mistresses. For Tiger Woods, more time with his wife Elin could come with a steep price tag as there are now reports that the golfer has sent a generous Christmas present and Elin is now considering to work things out.
News of the World reports that Elin has told friends that Tiger has given her $300 million and rumors are flying whether that was actually the case and if so, what this could mean. The speculation is that Tiger simply had to pay because of a prenup or that it is simply the cost of a prolonged marriage to Elin.
Tiger Woods had fun, but there’s a tough time ahead. And it seems that after all the attention he received from, as of now, 14 mistresses, he seems to be adjusting, not quite voluntarily, to have time for himself. Even if he is unlikely to become the single dad who has to deal with many personal problems just on his own, he is now facing what is a much more isolated life than before.
Tiger Woods’ actions and his name are an invitation for media and bloggers for wordplays and I can’t quite remember such creativity in 14 years of journalism. We had, for example, the woodsmeister, the tiger den, the cougar who taught the tiger and we now have the tiger that has turned into a lone wolf. All of them probably some truth, especially Fox News’ metaphor of a lone wolf.
Having a prenup in place is typically seen as the man being in charge of what would happen in the case of a divorce. If Tiger Woods and Elin Nordegren split, which seems to be certain by now, that would indicate that Nordegren’s share of Woods’ fortune may be limited. But there are reports that Nordegren is about to retain a high powered attorney and there are reports that she could challenge the rumored prenup. Will it hold up?
You can bet on virtually anything today, so it should be no surprise that you can also place monetary bets on the Tiger Woods divorce and your correct guess how much money Elin Nordegren will collect could yield a decent return.
Tiger Woods’ public apology almost sounded that there was reason for hope that his marriage could be strong enough to survive 13 mistresses. Now it seems pretty certain that Woods and Nordegren are aiming for the single parent lane. Nordegren is apparently building her case and sources close to her now say that a divorce is unavoidable.
Last weekend, we heard rumors that Tiger Woods and Elin Nordegren may be splitting and now we are seeing plenty of buzz that this rumor in fact may be true. And Woods’ efforts to repair what has been damaged may have failed already. Apparently, his wife and Elin and his kids will spend Christmas in Sweden, while Woods will stay in Florida, hoping for things to calm down.
If gossip paper News of the World is right, then there may not be much left for Tiger Woods to repair. According to sources the publication is quoting, Nordegren is simply keeping the peace over Christmas, but will be filing for legal separation and divorce soon thereafter.
We leave it up to you to decide how much truth may be in this report, but common sense suggests that 13 mistresses may be enough for Nordegren to feel that the golf superstar is not the man she thought he was and Woods’ relatively weak apology may be too little to convince her otherwise.
Some stories just make you wonder. Out of nearly 70,000 stories that have been published on Tiger Woods over the past 3 days, you can find plenty about mistresses, infidelity, sponsors dropping Woods and thoughts on how Woods should apologize to his family. But there is one that sticks out. Yahoo’s chief executive Carol Bartz described Woods’ infidelity as a gift to the struggling media and advertising industry.
Tiger Woods today announced that he will be taking an indefinite break from golf, after he had received an ultimatum from his wife, to do his “best” to repair his marriage to “become a better husband, father, and person.” Of course, common sense raises the question what may be left to repair in Woods’ private life given the colossal deception he engaged in.
Woods’ statement reads like an apology for receiving a speeding ticket.
