Not attending the Masters was just the beginning. Elin’s anger towards Tiger is growing, and friends say it’s pushing her towards divorce! In fact, she just met with a lawyer today, says a new report.
Friends of Elin Nordegren, 30, say she’s reached her breaking point. It was bad enough that her cheating husband Tiger Woods, 34, went against her wishes and returned to golf, but now Elin is also reportedly furious over Tiger’s recent Nike commercial, which tastelessly included his late father, Earl Woods. “[She] was violently angry … and thought it was a cheesy thing to do,” a friend of Elin’s tells People. “She wouldn’t have gone near the Masters under any condition, but that just made her madder. She is over Tiger. I wouldn’t be surprised if she files for divorce sometime soon.”
Tiger made it clear to Elin that he wanted to spend more time with her and work on rebuilding their marriage, but his quick return to golf in the 2010 Masters Tournament (as well as submitting his entry for this June’s U.S. Open) has made Elin realize they were empty promises. “She’s so far beyond hurt now,” a source tells People. “If she were angry or if she hated him, they might still have a chance to work it out. But she’s beyond that. She’s numb. She just doesn’t care anymore. She’s like, ‘Whatever.’ Elin’s not the type to get all weepy or have pity parties for herself. She mourned the loss of this marriage, and now she’s moving on.”
And Elin might be “moving on” in a new house in Sweden, according to a report from TMZ. The site has obtained photos of the $2 million house Elin purchased last year in Sweden, and it looks like renovations are underway! If Elin decides to go ahead with the divorce, a house in her native Sweden would be a nice retreat for her and the kids.
Despite occasional outings together, Tiger and Elin have been living very separate lives as of late. Most recently, Elin flew alone to Arizona on April 11 to visit her ailing mother — and rather than go with her to lend support, Tiger took their children (Sam, 2, and Charlie, 1) on a separate trip April 12.
Elin may not be the type to “get all weepy or have pity parties for herself,” but she’s got to feel pretty abandoned by Tiger at this point. Her mother is incredibly sick, and rather than stand by her for support, Tiger is off playing golf and taking the kids on vacation. Between all the cheating, and now this total lack of support, wouldn’t you feel betrayed if you were Elin?
