Tiger divorce talks hit $750m

2010-05-22 11:06

New York - It appears the gloves are coming off in the divorce talks between Tiger Woods and wife Elin Nordegren.

The New York Post reported on Saturday that Nordegren's financial demands in any divorce settlement have now reached a staggering $750 million.

Another newspaper, the Chicago Sun Times reported that while divorce negotiations had been fairly civil, they "have turned extremely nasty".

Nordegren is also reportedly refusing to sign a lifetime "confidentiality clause" that would prevent her from writing a book or doing any interviews related to the collapse of the couple's marriage.

She also wants full custody of their two kids, the newspaper reported, even though it was first believed that they were going to agree to joint custody.

    As i thought, she is just proving all the claims that she is a Gold digger correct.....$750m, wow what a show

  • md - 2010-05-22 10:37

    Take him for everything he's got Elin.

  • Alchemist - 2010-05-22 10:53

    Little wonder Tiger has a stiff neck - so would you if you had to keep watching your back pocket ! - ag shame - sack the lawyers and give her $500mil and the settlement will be the same anyway - STUPID.

  • steve - 2010-05-22 11:04

    Yea, the screwing you get from the screwing you got!

  • lawyer - 2010-05-22 11:21

    it is the lawyers who asking for 750. elin gets 500 and the bal goes to the lawyers.

  • The Rob - 2010-05-22 11:31

    What is it with women? As if women have never committed adultery or been dishonest! Elin will always be a gold-digging dumb blonde - even with all Tiger's money. Believe me, he'll make a fortune again. She'll probably squander it. MD, you're a chop.

  • Panda - 2010-05-22 11:43

    Its an obscene amount of money, but after what he did to her. I believe she is entitled to do what she wants. He did exactly the same to her to get to here.

  • BadWes - 2010-05-22 11:43

    Typical woman, too lazy too lift a finger for the rest of her life. Tiger was wrong, but this does not justify the gold digger approach of Elin. But like I say, every woman's dream scenario. B**ch! Why take his kids also? I can see why you went to other woman, Tiger. You probably had to get approval through a lawyer to sleep with your own wife.

  • Howard54 - 2010-05-22 11:44

    No wonder he was screwing around. She's just proving what a cold-hearted, scheming, gold-digging b..ch most people thought she was from the beginning..

  • Tiger Woods Fan - 2010-05-22 11:45

    @Fanie I reiterate what you said she is a gold digger!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Why did she marry him in the first place!!!!!

  • shit - 2010-05-22 11:49

    when a women is full of tiger shit,but a man is a man,its sad how wife just decide to take everything you worked for,it sad

  • kickbutt - 2010-05-22 11:57

    lets not forget - he put himself in this position - Elin, take him for everything he's got!!!!

  • Smiler - 2010-05-22 12:09

    If you are born poor its not your fault. If you marry poor it is. But if you marry rich then take the guy for whatever you can get from him in a divorce for all he has done to you lass.

  • Lor - 2010-05-22 12:09

    Ms Elin became a nanny to catch a rich husband, she didn't need the job. Why would a model become a nanny? She then had two children on the trot to ensure that she was tied to Tiger's millions for ever. In the old days these women were called whores!

  • Arthur - 2010-05-22 12:19

    Sue him for everything that he has.

  • Francois - 2010-05-22 12:23

    Gold Digger?? She gave him two children and he went and screwed anything that came along!! Go fot it girl, clean him out!

  • jennilee sale - 2010-05-22 12:28

    Wow...good for you Elin, let the womanizer pay for his mistakes! His mistresses will pacify him. My late husband idolized Tiger, the man that could not put a foot out of place and being from a disadvantage background, did so well for himself! There was hope for all the world to become famous and wealthy, but no it was not enough for this man. Give her what she wants, she will for the rest of her life live with this hanging over her head. He is a scumbag in my eyes.

  • KEORAPETSE - 2010-05-22 12:31

    please would anybody tell me what has Elin Nordegren contributed to his wealth

  • winzah - 2010-05-22 12:41

    it seems now marriage is a get rich quick scheme. as a woman i am totally disgusted at this woman's attitude. A real gold digger. what did she bring to this marriage that she so desperately wants to take back? NOTHING

  • Mavrick - 2010-05-22 12:45

    She has and will always be a gold digger, and all his chicks would be the most expencive "sidelines" ever, could have paid a lot less if he knew Lolly rest in peace.

  • Digusted - 2010-05-22 12:47

    She's a pure Blonde bitch nothing more than a money grabber. Long term the children will suffer.

  • Susan G - 2010-05-22 13:15

    Why are they getting divorced? Did He do a bit of stepping out? If so, I think that $750 a month is fair, considering that She is obviously young and healthy enough to be working full time like all the rest of us. If She was the one who stepped out, then of course Tiger should receive the $750 a month which I'm sure he needs. Are the children working? If not, they soon will be at this rate to pay the lawyers' fees. Who is Tiger planning on marrying next? If he hasn't yet thought that far ahead, I am available and come (relatively) cheap.

  • Richard - 2010-05-22 13:15

    @md, the $750 million is not only made up of what his got, but a projected share of all future earnings as well. I doubt whether that will claim will stick, but between a woman scorned and lawyers, you never know. Tiger is learning that as William Congreve, the English Playwright said, "Heaven hath no rage like a love to hatred turned, nor hell a fury like a woman scorned." But at least we know, that, if she gets a share of Tiger's future earnings, Elin will then still be rooting for Tiger when he is playing golf. :)

  • goldie - 2010-05-22 13:15

    silly Elin. wait a while and go for a billion.

  • Frosty - 2010-05-22 13:39

    Yip , she's a gold digger.

  • jules - 2010-05-22 13:40

    BWAHAHAHAHAHA! You go girl!

  • lawler - 2010-05-22 13:56

    It would appear my little glassy eyed chipmunk friend confused the word philanderer and philanthropist! Or maybe he did consider himself philanthropist by being a generous donor to the trade of prostitution. This is one hell of an expensive round of 19 hole of golf he will never forget. You take him for all you can Elin.

  • Aha - 2010-05-22 14:08

    The best gift any many can give his children, is to love their mother, he stole that from his children too. Tiger is a loser, he should never have married as he knew who he was. Now he has disrupted this womans' life and caused her pain on a global stage. Elin you have very right to claim this from him.

  • sports a waste of money - 2010-05-22 14:11

    clean him out he never really worked hard for his overpayed boring job,teach him to putt his balls in the correct hole the overpayed twit

  • Bez - 2010-05-22 14:26

    You ignorant sods out there should get your facts straight before you start calling Elin a gold digger. She comes from a well-to-do family an did not need Tiger's money. She resisted his advances for a long time before agreeing to go out with him. The real gold digger here is Tiger - his advisors urged him to acquire Elin because she had the right image that could advance his standing in the public eye. The fact that she is white also played a major role in that decision. Therefore their relationship started on a lie because he actually conned her into falling for him. The fact that he had so many affairs only proves that he never felt anything for her. As a golfer he should have realized that risky shots have the danger of backfiring on you. So he should just write double bogey on this score card and move on to the next "hole". Elin lawfully deserves half of his earnings while they were together. Live with it.

  • Doc - 2010-05-22 14:27

    Just another money-grabbing whore. You pay either way.

  • Andre - 2010-05-22 14:29

    Sue him for every dollar he has and 100% of all his future earning. He is a piece of scum, All he can do in life is hit a golf ball, big deal. He asked her to marry him and he has messed her life up and the lives of 2 innocent children. They will for the rest of their lives be known as the children of the male golfing whore. He should be jailed, he is a sick human being.

  • jameel - 2010-05-22 14:35

    what did she do to deserve that amount of monies, freakin gold digger. go work for your money lazy cow.

  • @Susan G - 2010-05-22 14:54

    Exactly which rock did you just crawl out from under? And that's $750 000 000, not $750 per month. The mind boggles!

  • james - 2010-05-22 15:23

    She is no better than him - no dignity - if u divorce him for his money then you married him for his money! Obviously she needs to be taken care of - but $100 million should do that - no need to try and get more. What a slut!

  • uyi - 2010-05-22 17:10

    ITS ALWAYS ABOUT THE MONEY. TIGER, ITS ALWAYS ABOUT THE MONEY. SHE JUST GOT AN OPPORTUNITY AND SHE IS TAKING IT. I FEEL 4 U MEN, AND IT WILL BE O.K . IF SHE REALLY REALLY LOVE YOU WATS SHE IS DOING WILL NOT BE AN OPTION. ITS A PITY, ITS ALWAYS ABOUT THE MONEY. KNOW WAT TIGER, LIFE GOES ON. U AR STILL MY HERO.

  • JC - 2010-05-22 17:41

    She is a bloody gold digger. Why does she want to take what she didn't give. 750mil just for screwing Woods?? Oh! please!!! Marriage these days is all about making money. She is the problem in the first place for Woods to go and screw outside. The laws should be changed & prevent gold diggers like Elin to rip off ex husbands. There must be a standard divorce settlement. Why does a settlement be based on your bank account. Its total bull s#*t. Next guy whatch out she might clean u up as well.

  • pikza - 2010-05-22 17:55

    This is what happens when you marry a gold digger and useless one in bed as well,all she ever does is to give you kids just to tie you up in case you dump her.She knows that in bed she is lousy and boring.Now you end up paying all hard earned money to her because she is showing her true colours no wonder she wanted to be hooked up with you whilst single.Get rid of her Tiger.

  • trevor - 2010-05-22 18:03

    maybe if she gave him enough sex , was a loving wife, and not a stuck up european bitch, he would not have needed to f all and sundry, she could even have made it fun and joined him for group sex, life is not only golf, even tiger got bored with that.

  • Helen - 2010-05-22 18:26

    I have always known she was after his money. She is just another whore!! How does she get that amount. She was just a nanny who had a warehouse crane driver for a boyfriend!!! Hope she chokes on that money!!

  • KOPPIES - 2010-05-22 18:32

    good, that will teach you to keep to your own kind. whites will not go for a poor black. you made your bed Tiger, have a good sleep

  • Monifah - 2010-05-22 20:00

    Poor kids. That witch only wants money. She was just looking for an excuse to divorce him so she can cash in. If she was such a good mother and really did love Tiger she would've given him a second change for the sake of the children. Tiger reconcider South African girls next time. Some of us are not just back stabbing gold diggers!!!

  • Malan - 2010-05-22 20:19

    According to CDC 1 out of 4 Americans have an SDT - one of them HiV is a death sentence. He risked her life and maybe she is infected. What is the price for a STD that is incurable?

  • James - 2010-05-22 20:34

    all the people who say she is a gold digger is pobebly also screwing around and cheeting. Tiger was having this "problem" before he married her. So go girl take everything, the lawyers will take a great deal, Tiger's children will have toive with the legasy of being children of a male whore. he will slowly go down and fade away will come back as a porn star

  • justice - 2010-05-22 21:21

    This approach to regard a marriage as a meal ticket for life is stupid (and unfair too). Millions of marriages fall apart due to the interference of third parties. It happens, that is life. Ellen should take a fair amount as to maintain a good standard of living for herself and for the children, but to turn a settlement into a stick to "punish" the guilty party with? That is so shallow, mean and demeaning to her. Come on Ellen, you always were the perfect lady. Don't write that book with the gory details. He is still the father of your children. Don't take him to the cleaners because your ego is hurt. Take your share, move on and find somebody else who would love you and not fool around.

  • zana mari - 2010-05-22 21:22

    how does she end up demanding all that after signing a prenup saying she gets next to nothing and then moving to a state that would not consider the prenup? Is this not changing gola posts ? gold digger gold digger gold digger!!! maybe he needs to pay up .forget everything kids included and start afresh new wife new kids- hard though

  • Good Guy - 2010-05-22 22:09

    And thats why you should marry a woman just for her looks, or for status. See?? Now look what you got yourself into Mr Wood. U should have just married one of the Williams sisters. They've got their own money

  • the other arthur - 2010-05-22 22:24

    he's a fool...she's a moneygrabber...she should get 25% of his nett worth and not a penny more their poor kids are gonna get messed up by their antics what a pair of asswipes

  • @Panda - 2010-05-22 23:32

    Adultery is worth $750m? Zim$, yes!!! If this is true, then I feel no sympathy for her. She simply is a golf digger

  • Wally - 2010-05-23 08:48

    Those of you calling Elin a "gold digger" - are you not jealous of the money that she may be getting from someone that "screwed up" her and her kids' lives?
