Does Tiger deserve to keep his kids near him? Elin wants to go to Sweden with her kids Sam and Charlie — but new reports say there’s NO chance Tiger will let that happen.

Tiger Woods is not going to allow Elin Nordegren to take her two little ones — Sam, 2 and Charlie, 1 to her native Sweden.

PopEater‘s Rob Shuter spoke to sources close to the Tiger/Elin camp, and it turns out Tiger isn’t going to let Elin take the kids to Sweden — even for a trip! “No way would Tiger let Elin leave the USA with his children.” says a source.

Even though Tiger wasn’t a loyal husband, sources say the golf pro is a very devoted father. “You can say whatever you want about Tiger as a husband, but he has always been a great father,” says the source. “He knows his marriage is probably over, but he will never give up on those kids. They mean the world to him.” But doesn’t Elin deserve to move on with her life? She’s not the one who ruined their marriage!

Elin has shown signs of wanting to leave the states. She recently bought a $2.2 million home on an island near Stockholm, Sweden and is looking to move out of her rented property in Windermere, FL. But does Elin realize she will have a tough time leaving with her kids?  PopEater says she might look to purchase another house near the home she shared with Tiger.

Elin just boarded a private plane today in Orlando with her two children and a nanny — we’re not sure where she’s headed … possibly to Scottsdale, Ariz., to visit her ailing mother. But we do know Tiger is not on the plane — this will be Elin’s third trip this month without Tiger.

We reported Elin met with a divorce lawyer “for hours” on Apr. 14 after becoming “furious” over Tiger’s Nike commercial and competing in the 2010 Masters Golf Tournament but even though Elin has plans to divorce Tiger our own attorney’s agree with Rob’s report.

“In the event that Tiger [Woods] objects to the terms [of her taking them out of Florida], he can go to court … and stop her from doing it,” says Florida divorce attorney Chris Mancini (who isn’t involved in the case). “She won’t be allowed to take the kids without a signed agreement.”
