It is final and official Tiger Woods and the Swedish beauty Elin Nordegren are divorced, after almost 8 months after the scandals regarding the golfer’s affairs, they announce that their divorce is finalized.
There was a time when we thought that there might be hope when Elin backed off on her divorce plans and tried to give her marriage a second chance but after Tiger returned to golf so fast putting her and the children in the second role she was having doubts, even more when that alleged neighbor mistress came up and let’s not forget Tiger’s Nike commercial. Then it was so over.
Elin and Tiger got married in October 2004 at the Sandy Lane Resort in Barbados. They welcomed their daughter Sam on June 18, 2007 and Charlie in February 2009, but in December the happiness, security and intimacy that surrounded the Woods/Nordegren household was broken after Tiger’s multiple alleged affairs became public, but you all know the rest of that story, so let’s check out their divorce.
Maybe you remember that it was rumored that Elin was getting about $750,000 as part of their divorce settlement an the children’s custody but then we heard that it was less about $100,000, but until this day no official amount of $$ has been confirmed.
This day August 23rd, 2010 at Bay County, Panama City in Florida, Elin’s attorney McGuireWoods LLP and Tiger’s Sasser Cestero and Sasser P.A informed the news that Tiger and Elin’s divorce is finalized, they will share custody of the beloved children.
This is the statement released by Elin Nordegren and Tiger Woods regarding their divorce.
“We are sad that our marriage is over and we wish each other the very best for the future. While we are no longer married, we are the parents of two wonderful children and their happiness has been, and will always be, of paramount importance to both of us. Once we came to the decision that our marriage was at an end, the primary focus of our amicable discussions has been to ensure their future well-being. The weeks and months ahead will not be easy for them as we adjust to a new family situation, which is why our privacy must be a principal concern.”
