Tiger's Divorce Settlement... Holy Crap!

FoxNews.com wrote:Elin Nordegren Gets $750M, Custody of Kids in Exchange for Silence in Tiger Woods Divorce

Tiger Woods is banned from letting girlfriends near his kids in a divorce deal netting his ex a record $750 million settlement, The Sun reported Wednesday.

The golfer agreed to keep single women away from daughter Sam, three, and son Charlie, one.

He can bring a new flame into their lives only if he marries her. In return, former wife Elin Nordegren ,30, gets the biggest payout ever seen in a celebrity divorce.

But she can never publicly speak out over his alleged flings with socialite Rachel Uchitel, reality star Jaimee Grubbs, porn queen Joslyn James and up to 17 others.

A pal said: "Elin is desperate to protect the children from the womanizing side of their father.

"Tiger's main fear is her telling her story after he's rebuilt his reputation, sending him back to the gutter."

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

The friend 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.

That means Woods will share decisions about their future -- so Nordegren will not be able to permanently relocate them to her native Sweden.

Woods -- believed to be building a golf resort in Dubai and investing in the Bahamas -- will be able to see the kids for up to half of each week.

He can renegotiate the custody agreement in five years.

The pal said: "Elin admits that despite everything, Tiger loves his kids and has been a decent dad.

"She is confident he will not pursue seeing the children that much, due to his work and lifestyle."

Under the no-girlfriends deal, only married women not romantically linked to Woods will be allowed around the children -- plus female members of staff known to Nordegren.

This seems strange to me. How much can she possibly tell us that we don't already know/

I don't think that's the point. I think the point is that it's never to be brought up again. Like in five or ten years, after Tiger rebuilds some of his rep, then she goes and writes a book or something.

Yeah - most of the money Tiger has earned in his career was because of his shiny reputation through endorsements. Bringing up anything negative at any time would likely be huge financial hit for Team Tiger.

Personally, I had a feeling the dude was worth almost a billion, but sheesh 1.5? At his age and the right investments, imagine the net worth when he's ancient. :-L

This was my favorite part:

Elin admits that despite everything, Tiger loves his kids and has been a decent dad.

Why? You think she's wrong for saying Tiger shouldn't have been cheating on her? Tiger's not the victim here and when you cheat with that much money you better be prepared to pay the price. Your comment is vague though so maybe that's not what you meant to say.

I'm pretty sure that he is commenting on how it's hard to feel sorry for a woman who just got 750 million dollars dumped in her lap. Sure she's the victim but she's a victim worth 750 dollars....I'd voluntarily be the "victim" of a lot of things for that kind of coin. :-B

At the same time, I'm sure a lot of people wouldn't take any amount of money for their marriage to be over and to have it be public knowledge that they were cheated on with like 20 women.
