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.”

REading this stuff is laughable. So many ‘lawyers’ and experts on here.
It does not matter what you all think. You all are bringing emotion into a case where it matters none. Was Tiger a poor husband? In same ways yes, in other ways no. Doe shim cheating on his wife have any bearing as to whether he was/is a bad father? Unless he was subjecting his kids to any physcial part of the affair (making them watch, leaving them in the car while he had sex in a hotel) then the answer is no, and that is the way the courts will look at it as well.
CLB had the response which was the most simple and fartherest off base. CLB is clearly a simple person. IT is not up to Tiger, that is correct, nor is it up to Elin. It’s up to the courts. The kids are US citizens, born here and been here their whole loves. No judge is about to let them leave the country and the court’s reach. Those kids will not leave the state of FL, much less the country, without Tiger’s express premission. End of story. The same goes if Tiger wants to take them somewhere; as long as he get’s Elin’s permission to leave the state. If not, too bad.
It’s truly laughable to read how people who don’t know have expert opinions and assume that becasue Elin is the mother, Tiger has zero rights and/or say in matters pertaining to the kids. Tiger is the US citizen, Elin is not. She is the odd ball out here, and I’m certain her lawyers have explained to her as much.
Like it or not, the law does not see Tiger as a poor unfit father, nor does common sense. If you think becasue he cheated on his wife he is a poor father, then you’re a damn fool and you’re going to sit there in awe as the judge gives Tiger what he wants, even above your objections. Laughable.

well, it is said now, Tiger actually did not cheat on Elin, Elin agreed to go along with the whole bs, and stay quite just for Pr reasons. As if Tiger needed any more publicity, but look he came back awful damn quick didn’t he? Had this really happened do ya think gang he would be playing so damn good? Oh, how damn ignorant we can all be. and those of you disbelieving the media, try disbelieving them all! I have inside info.. the whores he supposidly went out with are just that, and they weren’t paid or treated well by him or had no meals bought by him because they didn’t get paid til after the supposed story.If you are a waffle house gum chewing bleached ass blonde wouldn’t you take a few thousand dollars, to act like you slept with him, knowing you would gain perhaps thousands or perhaps millions more to do tv interviews and of course not to mention playboy… geez… how dumb are you all oops did I say that?Ha ha ha ha. nighty night. As Elin and Tiger snuggle up laughing all the way to the bank

perhaps he should have thought about his kids being taken away before he neglected them, and his beautiful wife while he lay with whores… enough said battle that one and I will laugh about it. God bless Elin and go for it! Just because people are in Hollywood(which most are the worst these days) doesn’t mean you have more rights, that is what is wrong with this country. maybe Mr. obama has some morals now, huh?

Elin needs to get away from this nightmare she found herself in…..cameraes, and nasty remarks, she is a human being, nobody can live like she has done for the last months…..take a brake Elin, be with people you can trust and who loves you for who you are, and your kids will love to be with grandmother and other family members….Elin needs love and support now – I would get away far away if it was me…Tiger did all that to her, ..oh no!…..

Nothing to do with being a ‘nice try'; or trying to get anything to “fly”. Facts are facts. If there really is “way too much evidence” then where is it?

Not a single one of Tiger’s reported mistresses provided any evidence that they had unprotected sex with him. So far all that’s been shown are text messages and emails. While the texts were most certainly horrible, disgusting and embarrassing, none of them made any mention of unprotected sex. So there’s nothing in writing, and no released photos or videos showing Tiger having unprotected sex with those icky women.

It was proved that Tiger cheated on his marriage with multiple women, and it was proved that he sent some disgusting text messages to some of the women he was cheating with. No other proof has been provided.

I’m not condoning Tiger’s behavior because adultery is wrong, Period. My point was that no proof was provided that Tiger had unprotected sex.

Where are the photos of Elin meeting with the divorce lawyer on April 14th? What is the divorce lawyer’s name? What firm does the divorce lawyer work for? Who saw this lawyer with Elin?

Where is the proof that that Elin is ‘furious’ about Tiger’s Nike commercial? The ‘real’, legitimate news press reported January 2010 that the 2.2 million dollar home Elin bought in Sweden was for her mother, and that the home and the property needs extensive renovations before it will be habitable for Elin’s mother, and that the renovations would take anywhere from 6 months to a year to complete.

This story is based on gossip and rumor instead of actual facts. The facts are, Elin has gone somewhere with the children and Tiger is at home. That’s all the media knows, the rest is just conjecture and neither Elin nor Tiger is talking. If Elin doesn’t divorce Tiger what will be the gossip then? That he’s holding her hostage in some manner? Face it, the media doesn’t know what’s going on and you’re making it up as you go along.

TIGER HAS BEEN A GREAT FATHER. ELIN HAS BEEN A LOUSY MOTHER IN THE LAST 5 MONTHS, SHE NEEDS EMERGENCY MENTAL HEALTH HELP, AND HAS. I AM SO GLAD TIGER WILL NOT ALLOW HER TO TAKE THEIR CHILDREN TO SWEDEN, OTHER THAN FOR VISITS, AND THE LAW WILL NOT ALLOW IT EITHER, YAY. TIGER’S LIFE IS HERE, AND SO WAS HER’S AND THEIR CHILDREN’S. TOO BAD FOR ELIN. WHY SHOULD THEIR CHILDREN KEEP SUFFERING BECAUSE OF ELINS ISSUES AND SICKNESS. SHE SHOULD BE ORDERED INTO COUNSELING, AND THEY BOTH SHOULD TOGETHER. ALSO, HE SHOULD BE ORDERED TO CONTINUE REHAB, AND BOTH TO REMAIN IN THE U.S. , SUCH AS FLORIDA, THIS IS ALL FOR THE CHILDRENS BEST INTERESTS. THEY ARE INNOCENT.

your opinion is beyond the pale! Tiger’s ability to be a great dad rather than just a supportive father emotionally, and financially has been jeopardized by his own actions!! Tiger acknowledges that so why don’t you?

Really, a great father. Are you kidding me? That’s why he’s out doing trashy girls with no condom and then going home to his pregnant wife and screwing her. If he really really cared, honestly he wouldn’t have done that or he would have at least used a condom. He could have given his wife or kid something. He needs to let those kids go. He sucks in general, except at golf.

I feel they will work it out…He will be on tour.. So why can’t he work something out and let her live where she wants..I feel she will abide whatever the court says..Sounds like Tiger wants to keep Elin close by to control..Let her go Tiger and live your life as a single person/Father.. Good luck to both of you..

This is not for Tiger to decide, but the court.The court after considering all the factors on the case, will decide what is the best interest of the children before granting parental custody. If Elin gets full custody she can live anywhere she wants. If they get joint custody, she still can travel out of the country with the children, providing she abides by the conditions of the joint custody.
The fact is no responsible Court on this land will overlook Tiger Woods serious emotional and character issues, before granting parental custody on this case. Tiger had multiple adulterous affairs during his marriage. He showed careless disregard for the health and wellbeing of his wife and children by having unprotected sex with multiple partners of dubious morality, potentially exposing them to STD. Tiger has shown low frustration tolerance and poor anger control with frequent anger outburst and use of profanities in public. Tiger also has a recent history of addiction to pain and sleeping medication and gambling issues. Tiger may be very lucky if he gets share custody, providing he keeps clean and continues rehab, but the odds are not in his favor.

No proof has been provided that Tiger had unprotected sex. Proof was provided that Tiger cheated, but NOT that he had unprotected sex.

A lot of the women he was with claimed that he had unprotected sex with them, but they didn’t prove it and they provided NO evidence. Anyone can SAY anything. Just because someone says something doesn’t make it so.

Why should women who were willing to sleep with a married man (or several married men) be believed and treated as honest people when they obviously aren’t? It’s the same with the medications and the gambling. No proof was provided that Tiger had an addiction to medications or gambling.

Tiger Woods gambled legally in Las Vegas, but there have been no claims that Tiger gambled illegally or that he was addicted to it. And again, it’s true that Tiger has legal prescriptions for both Ambien and Vicodin, but no proof was provided that Tiger abused prescriptions or obtained them illegally.

And Tiger deliberately didn’t specify what his rehab treatment was for, he said it was “personal”, which is true. It’s Tiger and his family’s business what he’s getting rehab for, and they have the right not to tell the world if they don’t want to. The press and the public didn’t like that so they decided to ‘fill in the blanks’ with whatever they want to believe. There have been many claims made by Tiger’s so-called ‘mistresses’, but the only proven claims are that Tiger cheated on his wife with multiple women. Nothing else has been proven and no evidence has been provided that Tiger had unprotected sex with the other women.

So if a person has any intelligence they’ll think it through before jumping on the gossip bandwagon alongside the tabloid press and some of the easily misled members of the public.

For the last few years this guy didn’t think about how his behavior with all these women would impact his wife and kids. Now that his behavior has caused the family to disintegrate he needs to focus on what is best for his kids not himself for once.

If the kids can have a more stable life in Sweden with extended family, away from the paparrazi and media focus, then he should make a personal sacrifice and let them go. He can travel to see them withoud disruptng their lives.

How much time did he spend on these other women that he could’ve spent with his family anyway?

Tiger has been a great father…what a joke..from my understanding he missed his daughter’s baptism and his sons first birthday..and that is the definition of a good father…by whose standards…he may love them..but he certainly has not shown that he is a great father….or husband…
