After nine months of turmoil over his marriage life, the golf superstar Tiger Woods and his Swedish-born wife officially divorced Monday.
Today, the Elin Nordegren & Tiger Woods divorce was finalized at the Bay County Circuit Court, in Panama City, Florida.
The divorce at the Bay County Circuit Court in Panama City, Florida, at exactly 2pm, about 375 miles from their Isleworth home outside Orlando, where golf superstar drove his brand new SUV over a fire hydrant and into a tree on Thanksgiving night.
“We are sad that our marriage is over and we wish each other the very best for the future,” Woods and Elin Nordegren said in a joint statement released by their lawyers.
Tiger and Elin were married on Oct. 5, 2004, and have a 3-year-old daughter, Sam, and a 19-month-old son, Charlie.
Everyone following the love story of Tiger and Elin are fully aware that after the divorce Elin will walk away from her six-year marriage with Tiger Woods with approximately $100 million. However, the amount is not official yet, but it appears as though Tiger Woods will have to provide his ex-wife with more or less $100 million as well as financial support for the child. The total may end up being over $100 million when all is said and done.
Tiger and Elin signed a prenuptial agreement before their marriage. The agreement stated that Elin would receive $20 million once they get a divorce. However, since Tiger was caught cheating on her wife multiple times, the judge ruled in favor a larger settlement.
Tiger Woods ex-wife released the following statement through her lawyer:
“While we are no longer married, we are the parents of two wonderful children and their happiness has been, and will always be, of paramount importance to both of us. Once we came to the decision that our marriage was at an end, the primary focus of our amicable discussions has been to ensure their future well-being. The weeks and months ahead will not be easy for them as we adjust to a new family situation, which is why our privacy must be a principal concern.”
