Tiger Woods and Elin have been living together for a week

fp_4506373_barm_nordgren_el
On Friday we heard from the National Enquirer that all was predictably not well in Tiger Woods’ household and that he had a conniption fit before his televised scripted apology because his wife Elin refused to show up to offer silent support. There was also news of a blowout during a couples therapy session after he refused to name all his mistresses. (As many of you pointed out, it’s not like he would have been able to remember them all, anyway.)

Despite all the news of their problems, Tiger and Elin are supposedly working things out. TMZ reports that they’ve been living together for over a week. Tiger has been frantically practicing golf when weather permits in order to prepare for his comeback, which could be as early as next week:

Tiger Woods’ family life is getting back to normal — TMZ has learned the golfer has made it a whole week living under the same roof as his wife Elin Noredgren and their two kids.

Sources close to the family tell us Tiger’s been staying with the family at their Isleworth estate for the past 8 nights — and during that time, we’re told Elin has been seen around town with a rejuvenated demeanor.

As for Tiger, he was practicing like a man possessed before the weather got bad — but with the rain coming down for the past few days, he’s been stuck indoors.

As we previously reported, Woods is expected to make his return to golf on March 22nd at the Tavistock Cup — but word on the street is Elin is not expected to attend.

We heard two weeks ago that Elin and Tiger were moving back in together, which makes this sound like it was planned out in advance of Tiger’s return to golf. So is this all spin from Tiger’s people? Is Elin motivated by love for Tiger and/or did she receive a hefty settlement for sticking around? She hasn’t left him yet apart from a holiday visit to her native Sweden. Since Elin isn’t talking, we only have her behavior to go by and while she isn’t wearing her wedding ring she hasn’t bolted and filed for divorce like a lot of people expected her to.

    ok i’m not reading anymore of these posts! they make me so mad!

  2. canadianchick says:

    Aww cute kids. I’m guessing separate bedrooms for Elin and Tiger. Or a master suite with a separate shower to remove Tiger’s std’s before he’s allowed in the bed.

  3. Tia C says:

    Yeah, me too, ams. Everytime I see one of these headlines saying “Elin taking Tiger back” or something like that, I just think “NOOOOOOOO!!!!”

    Maybe she’s trying to work with him due to some love she still feels for him, but whatever the reason, I just wish she’d have some self respect and move ON. She deserves better. And so do her beautiful children. Tiger disrespected his whole family, and he doesn’t deserve to get them back, IMHO.

  4. ams says:

    tia! i’m with you. i have no doubt she has feelings for him b/c he’s the dad blah blah blah but he blew it! he can be their dad still but not the husband.

  5. bellaluna says:

    Elin needs to understand that she loved Tiger before (and during the time) he did all this, and he still chose to do it. So after it all comes out in the wash, still loving him isn’t going to change his behaviour. If he truly wants to change, he will. If not, she’ll find out soon enough.

    It’s probably a business deal, like one of his endorsement contracts. But it still makes me angry.

  6. Sudini says:

    I agree – I can’t read anymore about how Elin is playing the dutiful wife and taking this piece of garbage back. It’s so entirely wrong. If anything, I think she’s agreed to play the part as much as she can stomach for his PR campaign. But that in and of itself is just gross. She needs to show some SERIOUS self-respect and just LEAVE him in the dirt.

  7. Len says:

    I agree, can’t read anymore! Can’t believe she fell for this sex-addiction nonsense! This whole sexaddiction excuse makes me so angry! I hate how every cheater is using it now. Acting like the victim of some kind of disease. AARGGH!

  8. Len says:

    The question is: will it last? How will she EVER trust him when he goes away on a trip, which is all the time. It will drive her insane.

  9. guilty pleasures says:

    Up to her, not us. Period.
    Tiger acted in a vile and unacceptable manner, most of us have never been attached to men who would have access to so many whores in so short a time, but I did have a husband who cheated on me- I knew it- and I stayed for two years for my children, about the same age as Elin’s.
    I can’t judge her, as long as the allegations don’t involve physical harm to the kids (or to her-notwithstanding the golf clubbing). If it’s the money she is staying for, that, too I cannot judge. Could there be an easier way to make a living?
    Be real, not sanctimonious!

  10. Sudini says:

    @guilty pleasures: You’re right when you say it’s up to her. But she’s in the public eye whether she likes it or not, and the messages she’s sending by staying are dangerous.

    Emotional harm is just as bad as physical harm (sometimes even worse because it’s much more insidious). Tiger Woods is an emotional abuser – he showed utter disregard for the feelings and the emotional state of his wife and children by decieving them repeatedly. Not to mention putting Elin in danger of STD’s.

    He IS an abuser, and Elin needs to get herself and those kids away from him or she’ll just end up teaching them that this type of behavior is ultimately acceptable (much the way Tiger’s own parents taught him).

  11. Kevin says:

    Anyone who can remember every golf shot that he has taken during every golf tournament he has played in can certainly remember 10 or 20 skanks names. Glad all you guys are gonna stop posting in the Tiger threads, that will only leave his fans to post positive stuff. Also glad he’s coming back to golf to administer regular ass whoopings to the pretenders that are now winning tournaments in his absence. He is as rich as a king. He can do as he pleases…in America anyways.

  12. ams says:

    LOL @ kevin. who cares if he’s good at golf? that gives him a pass for being a sorry human being? enjoy posting his praises. silly boys.

  13. Sudini says:

    @ams – well said, I had to laugh at that too.
    The world according to Kevin apparently dictates that you’re allowed to be a raging sociopath as long as you can hit a ball with a stick REALLY well, lol.

  14. mel says:

    I know I’m alone here but I cant wait til Tiger returns to golf. As far as his relationship with Elin, that’s their business, it’s not for me to judge.

  15. Cheyenne says:

    Everybody needs to butt out of this family’s business. Elin does not owe any explanation to anyone if she chooses to take Tiger back. I’m not saying she is making a wise decision if she does, but it is her decision, and love can make people do some crazy-ass things.

  16. Kevin says:

    He’s not the 1st one to do this. He’s still better than rock-em-sock-em Brown. All I’m saying is I’m not personally invested in his situation and I don’t care. Personally if Elin was my old lady I would be sticking close to home. She’s fine as hell. Who knows she may be a terrible lay, not that it excuses Tiger’s multiple indiscretions.

  17. snapdragon says:

    my opinion? elin’s an idiot who hopes tiger will change, but he won’t. for her sake i hope he starts using condoms when he bangs his next round of bimbos.

  18. Kim says:

    If Elin’s an idiot so is Hillary Clinton.

  19. Feebee says:

    I’m guessing living in the same house does not mean everything’s back to the way it was but they’re working on it.

    Tiger will be back for the Masters. He needs to have the personal situation in a semi-satisfactory condition to allow him and the public to concentrate on him playing golf. Now if he should win the Masters, will Elin be waiting at the 18th?

  20. moo says:

    I guess she’s willing to sacrifice her self respect for his career. Stupid, stupid, stupid!!!

  21. Gypsy says:

    Many of you folks should be paying more attention to you own lives instead of Tiger’s.
    It’s more than likely you mate is right now doing a Tiger Woods, while you are busy with Tiger’s life your life is going to crap, you just haven’t caught your mate, yet!
    Remember 40% of married couple admit cheating, but in reality it’s more like 60% have afternoon delights.

  22. K-Love says:

    Elin is staying for the sake of her children. And I don’t blame her.I mean think about it. What would be beter for the children. Tiger and her divorced and she not having any say so of what her children are going through without her being there. Them possibly being around so many different women. How messed up that would make them. Or Elin and Tiger together and she has total control in the lives of her precious babies.She is doing the right thing, because it’s not about her and it’s not about Tiger it’s about the love she has for her children. That to me makes her an awesome woman and mother. She is a person of remarkable wisdom. My hat is off to her.

  23. Cinderella says:

    What does he give those kids besides financial support? Elin could have gotten that if she walked. How much time could he have possibly spent with them? No more than he would as a visiting dad.

    I am disappointed that she’s back with him.

    Oh well, he’s about to hit the golf circuit again. Let’s count the months before he screws up because you know he will.

  24. snowball says:

    @Cinderella – exactly.

    How exactly is he working on his marriage if he’s practicing golf like a man possessed? So, he comes in only to eat and pee and the rest of the time, he’s out on his private golf course.

  25. cara says:

    I would have taken him for every cent he had and leave.period.
    She is so much more beutiful then any of the other whores he had.I hope she doesn’t feel it was her fault he cheated

  26. CLB says:

    I am glad that Tiger and Elin seem to be working on repairing their relationship and saving their marriage.Tiger has said publicly that the two things that are most important to him are his wife and his children. Elin has been supporting Tiger during his rehab and she agreed to give him time to prove he is committed to her and the children. With love all things are possible. I wish them the best and hope they live happy together again. It is time for the media to back off and let Tiger and his family move on with their life!!!

  27. lin234 says:

    Elin has never sought out publicity before this scandal- that I know of. I don’t see why she should have to answer to anyone about her decision. There are plenty of women who have had to make the difficult decision about whether or not they should stay with their spouse after they find out about the cheating. They’ve done so for their own personal reasons. I can’t judge anyone for that.

    It’s been stated that she had a lot of issues regarding her own parents divorcing. I just think that despite everything, she wants to give her kids a chance at a normal family life.

    Sidenote- I love how her daughter is dressed in such a adorable manner. She looks so comfy and cute.

  28. Tazina says:

    She loves him enough to give it another try. I don’t think she got paid anything to stay. I’d be thinking 10 years down the road. What will he want then?

  29. Alexa says:

    Just because Elin isn’t immediately divorcing Tiger doesn’t make her the bad guy. Let’s not hastily throw our hands up and assume Elin’s a hopeless case too. Have you forgotten that there’s more than one way to skin a cat? Living a fabulous life is often the best revenge. Let’s keep pullin’ for this young lady and her adorable kids. (Who’s with me now?)

  30. Kevin says:

    Read something interesting on another site. Apparently Tiger has retained Ari Fleischer to help rehab his image. Pretty heavy hitter. We’ll see how that goes.

  31. ogechi says:

    Isn’t it better u make your relationship work before dissecting and proffering solution for others? Some of us wish to be admired by Tiger’s driver. Leave that family alone!
