Elin Woods is currently in her native Sweden with her two children while her philandering husband Tiger is no doubt partying in her absence. Radar Online claims that Elin wants to stay in Sweden with the kids while Tiger of course wants her to come back and kiss his ass like nothing was ever wrong. Despite reports a few weeks ago that tension was thawing in their household and Elin might be willing to reconcile with Tiger, things have taken a turn for the worse and she’s reportedly planning to make the split official. Radar writes that a divorce “showdown” will happen when Elin returns in two weeks. The news of Tiger’s affair with their young neighbor, along with the extensive profile of his activities in Vanity Fair, is said to have hastened Elin’s decision. She’s also unhappy with his decision to return to golf so soon after the scandal.
Elin, as RadarOnline.com was first to report, is in Sweden visiting friends and family. And Elin would like to move back to her native country, sources have told us.
But as Tiger’s marriage seems inevitably headed to divorce, issues still need to be resolved.
Until now Tiger and Elin have had no conflict over their children and been civil even while living apart.
But if Elin returns to Sweden, it could create problems with Tiger, who wants to be able to see his children regularly.
Love for their children is one of the very few things that unites Tiger and Elin at this point. The blonde beauty barely speaks to her husband any more and has refused to move back into the home they once shared. She also no longer wears her wedding ring.
Elin supported Tiger when he underwent sex addiction therapy but it’s clear to people close to them that his serial cheating has pushed the marriage to the edge.
They seemed to grow closer at one point after Tiger returned from Gentle Path in Hattiesburg, Mississippi but it quickly became obvious that all was not well when Elin began taking separate vacations and refused to put back on her wedding ring. She has taken four trips without Tiger within the past month, barely seeing him for 30 days.
And, as RadarOnline.com reported exclusively, Elin has met with a divorce attorney three times recently.
While Elin attempted to grow closer to Tiger, one source says she was upset by his quick return to golf and questioned his sincerity about improving their marriage. Then it was revealed that Tiger slept with the 21-year-old daughter of a neighbor, yet another betrayal of Elin.
Elin is close to her family, especially her twin sister. She’s returning from Sweden within two weeks and that’s when events with Tiger will come to a showdown, says the source.

I admire the way that Elin has handled all this. She’s smiled confidently to the paparazzi, but hasn’t given one official comment or even said anything to photographers. There may be a good reason for Elin’s silence other than pride. Earlier reports had her receiving $55 million on top of her $20 million prenup for staying with Tiger for two more years. There could have been a confidentiality clause built into those terms. However, Bill Zwecker at the Chicago Sun Times reports that Tiger and Elin’s settlement could reach a whopping $500 million, according to a source. Elin is said to be concerned that Tiger won’t leave a legacy for their children. She’s reportedly “obsessed” with a book called Empress Bianca, “about a very wealthy man whose children from the first marriage got screwed out of their inheritance by their father.” Depending on the terms of their prenup, she may not have much say in what the children get.
