Tiger Woods has been partying, and wherever and whenever Tiger parties, you know there’s trouble (and whores). Earlier this week, Tiger made his first big non-golf-related outing when he went to a Nickelback concert and “partied backstage surrounded by a security team” according to People Magazine. Which I think is probably a nice way of saying “banged some Nickelback groupies while his enablers watched”. He’s also been hanging with friends, and acting like a single guy. So, where’s Elin? Oh right. She took the kids and went to Sweden, Icelandic volcanic ash be damned. According to Radar, Elin “plans to spend her time there visiting friends and family and considering what she wants to do about her marriage.” Oh, and People has Elin doing extensive remodeling done to her Swedish estate, almost as if she’s planning on staying for a while. Considering Elin and Tiger have apparently (according to Radar) only spent three nights in the same city in a month, many are wondering aloud if we’re witnessing a formal separation. A “source” tells Us Weekly that Elin and Tiger’s divorce is “100% happening”. Here’s more:
Sweden is lovely this time of year — too bad Tiger Woods isn’t there with his Swedish wife Elin and their daughter Sam, 2, and son Charlie, 14 months.
While the golfer (he placed fourth in the Masters earlier this month) stays behind in the U.S., “Elin and the kids are out there visiting with [Elin's] family in Stockholm,” a family source explains to UsMagazine.com.
Meanwhile, the insider says that “nonstop construction” continues on the $3 million home in Vaxholm which Elin purchased in December. “She is definitely planning on spending a lot of time there — they are gutting it,” the source says of the private-island estate on Sweden’s west coast.
The mom and former model, 30, is “working hard” to speed up renovations. “She and the kids are going to be spending most of the summer there,” the source says. “Without Tiger.”
Also on Elin’s to-do list: divorce Woods, 34, who publicly acknowledged and apologized for his infidelity in February after being linked to over a dozen women.
“It’s 100% happening,” the insider says of the split. “Elin and her mom met with a lawyer before they went to Sweden.”
But don’t expect those proceedings to go quickly, cautions the source. “It’s going to take a long time to go through. [But] she will go through with it. She is all about being a mom. She will do it slowly and carefully.”
As for Tiger, TMZ reports that the golfer caught a Nickelback concert in Orlando, Fla. on Monday night, and “partied backstage” with the rock band. He is scheduled to compete in the Quail Hollow Championship near Charlotte, NC next week.

CB has been a lot kinder to Elin throughout this whole situation, and while I totally respect CB’s opinion, and I do feel so much sympathy for Elin, I also wanted Elin to get to this point a lot sooner. I recognize that it’s different when you have children with a man, and I get that Elin probably really loved Tiger, and it took her some time to understand that her marriage wasn’t at all what she once thought it was. But when the porn stars and hookers and Denny’s waitresses are coming out of the woodwork, you’re allowed to get mad and make a spectacle and throw his ass to the curb publicly. Maybe she’s reaming Tiger privately, and I’m totally off-base. Eh.
Meanwhile, Tiger’s new team of handlers/enablers is really mad at the turn of events, what with Tiger bangin’ groupies and Elin descending into a volcanic ash cloud rather than spend time with the father of her children. PopEater had the scoop:
Sources close to Tiger Woods tell me that they are “mad as hell” that the troubled golfer thought it would be a good idea to attend a Nickelback concert and party backstage while his wife Elin and the couple’s two young children took off for Sweden.
“Everyone around team Tiger has been working 24/7 to regain control of his image. Everything from carefully releasing pictures of him jogging to staging a press conference for his return to playing golf. No detail was too small to be overlooked,” an insider tells me. “Then after all that work and planning, Tiger decides that he must attend a concert by his favorite band and dance backstage while his wife is away. It’s a disaster. Everyone is at the point of giving up trying to help him.”
I’m not sure how many more chances Tiger is going to get. We already know the man doesn’t have the best judgment, but Nickelback? This just makes me think even less of the troubled golfer. I would understand if it were Bon Jovi … but Nickelback? Really?
Tiger is a f-cking idiot. He literally has no idea how to handle his fame when everyone is not kissing his ass. He might be a world-class golfer, but we know now that he’s severely lacking in the intelligence department. And the “not screwing the skankiest pieces out there” department. Hopefully, Elin and the kids will enjoy Sweden so much they’ll decide to stay there.
