Elin Nordegren and Tiger Woods divorce finalised

Tuesday August 24, 2010

Tiger Woods' marriage to Elin Nordegren is officially over.

The couple were both present at a divorce hearing at Bay County Circuit Court in Panama City, Florida on Monday as the marriage was described as "irretrievably broken".

They will share custody of their children, three-year-old Sam and one-year-old Charlie.

Details of the divorce settlement received by Elin will remain private. But estimates of the amount range from £65 million to £480 million.

According to reports the Swedish former model will get to keep the waterfront estate where the family lived before their troubles, as well as the £1.5 million property she bought on a Swedish island.

In return, it is claimed, she has agreed not to talk about their marriage. Meanwhile Tiger is said to be barred from introducing their children to any future girlfriends, unless he marries them.

Elin signed a prenuptial agreement when the couple wed in 2006, but it was renegotiated when Tiger was trying to save the marriage.

The divorce comes nine months after Tiger crashed his car outside the family home in Orlando, setting off a string of revelations about his love life.

As many as 19 women came forward to say they'd had affairs with him, and the sportsman took a five month break from golf to concentrate getting his personal life in order.
