Elin Maria Pernilla Nordegren Woods (born January 1, 1980) is a former Swedish model and wife of professional golfer Tiger Woods. Elin Nordegren and Tiger currently have 2 children and are working through allegations of infidelity on the part of Tiger.
There’s a new Tiger Woods biography out there, and one of the interesting claims made by author Steve Helling is that Elin Nordegren wasn’t really into Woods from the get-go.
“Tiger; The Real Story” explains, "Elin Nordegren was not the type of young woman to date Tiger Woods, at least not at first. For one thing, she had a boyfriend at home in Sweden. He was a normal, decent guy, driving a forklift in a warehouse. If things worked out with him, her life would be safe and predictable, an option that Elin actually found extremely appealing."
While it seemed as if there was a glimmer of hope at one point, the latest reports indicate that Tiger Woods and Elin Nordegren are definitely headed for divorce.
The Swedish beauty took the couples two children, Charlie Axel and Sam Alexis, to her homeland to spend time with family and check in on construction efforts being made to her S3 million home in Vaxholm - which was purchased in December 2009.
Keeping everyone guessing at her next move, it is being reported that Elin Nordegren has indeed finally met with a divorce lawyer.
According to Radar Online, the Swedish beauty met with an attorney in the home she is renting in Orlando, FL before jetting off to Scottsdale, AZ for a vacation while Tiger Woods made his return to the Masters.
