Tiger Woods' wife 'wants divorce, half his money and custody of kids'

Posted By: Staff

London, December 20 (ANI): Divorce may not come cheap for Tiger Woods, as his wife Elin has decided not just to separate from him but claim half of his approximate 370-million-pound fortune, apart from the sole custody of their children, it has emerged.

The exposure of Woods' multiple affairs has put his marriage on the rocks.

Seemingly, Elin is infuriated after Woods declined to go to rehab to fight his alleged addiction to prescription drugs Ambien and Vicodin and sex.

"Tiger was supposed to be working on getting better and he hasn't done anything. Instead he just went to stay with a friend in Maryland and says he's 'trying to get better on his own'," the News of the World quoted a close pal of Elin as saying.

The friend added: "Elin is livid he hasn't checked into rehab and gotten himself off his drugs. He's acting like a big baby.

"Now she wants 100 per cent divorce, 100 per cent custody of the children and half of everything. And she WON'T be changing her mind.

"Tiger is his own worst enemy because at the start, Elin was sympathetic towards him. He was so physically and emotionally ill, she was thinking of giving him a second chance. But Tiger's refusal to go into therapy is the last straw."

The Swede has reportedly got in touch with Californian divorce lawyer Sorrell Trope, whose services Britney Spears had used in her divorce with Kevin Federline.

Elin's primary objective in the court battle will be to get custody of her children Sam, two, and 10-month-old Charlie.

A source said: "She's like a mama bear protecting her young.

"She's prepared to give him visitation - but she wants the visits to be monitored.

"This may seem a little extreme but it shows her anger. Elin firmly believes she'll win custody as well as half everything Tiger has. He's in for a fight." (ANI)
