article imageDetails of Tiger Woods' divorce settlement emerge, Elin silenced

By Kay Mathews     Jul 1, 2010 in Lifestyle
The $750 million settlement is being called "hush money" because Woods' soon to be ex-wife Elin Nordegren is barred, for life, from writing or speaking about their relationship.
The Boston Herald reports that the British tabloid The Sun "broke the news of the staggering hush money yesterday."
According to a friend of Elin's, who was quoted in The Sun, "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."
The story also indicates that some restrictions have been placed on Tiger Woods. For example, Woods, 34, is not allowed to bring girlfriends around the couple's children, daughter Sam and son Charlie. The Sun reports that Tiger "can bring bring a new flame into their lives only if he has MARRIED her."
The Boston Herald interviewed Emerson College communications professor Gregory Payne about the settlement. Payne stated that he considered the hush money “disgusting,” and added, “I would take the money and find some loophole and expose him. Why is he so paranoid that his wife is going to give her perspective?”
In addition to the terms in the settlement that silence Elin Nordegran, 30, The Sun reports that Elin gets sole physical custody of the children but she and Tiger will split legal custody.
In terms of property, the report suggests that Elin keeps an apartment in Stockholm, a nearby island farmhouse, their main home in Windermere, Florida, and a nearby property.
Tiger gets the estate in Jupiter Island, Florida, and an apartment in Los Angeles.
According to Elin's unnamed friend quoted in The Sun, the six-year marriage will officially end soon. She said, "Everything's signed. Elin is ready to file for divorce at Orlando County Court. She expects to in the next seven days."
