Tiger's divorce details leaked

Florida - Tiger Woods is banned from letting girlfriends near his kids in a divorce deal netting his wife, Elin Nordegren, a record £500 million (R5.7 billion)

According to the HeraldSun website, the love-cheat golfer has agreed to keep single women away from daughter Sam, three, and son Charlie, one, and can only bring a new flame into their lives if he has married her.

In return, former wife Elin, 30, gets the biggest payout ever seen in a celebrity divorce.

But she can never publicly speak out over his flings with socialite Rachel Uchitel, reality star Jaimee Grubbs, porn queen Joslyn James and up to 17 others, who will work out costing the world's No 1 golfer a staggering £25 million each.

Swedish ex-nanny Nordegren ended up with double the sum she originally sought, after her lawyers proved Woods, 34, was worth much more than the $1 billion she thought.

Her friend explained: "Elin's legal team have done a great job digging up all sorts of assets.

"The price of the huge sum is her silence: no interviews, tell-all books, or TV appearances about this for the rest of her life - even if Tiger dies first - or she'll lose the lot."

Nordegren keeps their main home in Windermere, Florida, and a nearby property - jointly worth £3 million - plus an apartment in Stockholm and her island farmhouse nearby.

Woods gets a £50 million estate in Jupiter Island, Florida, where they had been building a new mansion. He will also keep their £2 million apartment in Los Angeles, when the six-year marriage officially ends.

The pal said: "Everything's signed. Elin is ready to file for divorce at Orlando County Court. She expects to in the next seven days."

Nordegren gets sole physical custody of their kids but they will split legal custody. Tiger can renegotiate the custody agreement in five years.

The previous most costly celebrity divorce was £100 million, paid by Woods's friend, basketball star Michael Jordan, to his wife Juanita in 2007.
