Elin Nordegren could get half of Tiger Woods' £337m

Wednesday December 16, 2009

Tiger Woods' wife Elin Nordegren has reportedly called upon California's leading celebrity divorce lawyer.

The 29-year old, who has two children with the athlete, is apparently set to meet Sorrell Trope of Tope and Trope next week to discuss her position.

He has represented some of the biggest names in the industry from Nicole Kidman to Nicolas Cage.

Elin is believed to be filing for divorce in California not Florida where the couple live. Under the Californian law 'no fault divorce' , Elin has rights to half of all assets and property.

This would give her a claim on half of the £337 million that Tiger earned during their marriage together.

Meanwhile Tiger's sports doctor has gone under FBI investigation for allegedly supplying performance-enhancing drugs to his patients. There is no suggestion that Tiger was involved in any way.
