Children Services Confirms Visit to Tiger Woods

12/14/2009 8:27 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Tiger WoodsAn official from the Florida Department of Children and Families tells TMZ a representative from the Department went to Tiger Woods' home Friday for a "well-being check."

The official says the Department received a complaint -- though we do not know who it was from or the nature of the complaint. The Department then got in touch with the Orange County Sheriff to help get through security at Tiger's gated community.

We're told the visit was not part of an investigation, but rather a routine procedure when a complaint is lodged. The Department not only evaluates the safety of the children but the adults in the house as well.

We do not know who was at the home when the visit took place.

A formal investigation has not been opened -- the case is being evaluated.

Sharpton is a current events pimp, everyone knows that. He has no horse in this race.

#14 - if you don't get the fact that it was started with a satire site - even if *I* don't like Sharpton, I'm not going to spread lies. He has enough manure on his own to hate him.

Not just a fling but long term relationshipes with numeropus women? Elin must be as dumb as a stump.

Most likely it was an internal complaint. A complaint doesn't have to be lodged by some anonymous person. If there were reports that Elin was chasing Tiger with a golf club AND he was driving and under several medications, then that complaint could have been a "mandated reporter" position by nurses, cops, or really anyone within the scene.

Racism at its best. All the kids being raised in drug houses, and they choose Tiger house to go visit. Tiger I hope you not blind to what is taking place.

So, who do we know likes to call these people? Gloria Allred. She called them on Octomom so she's done it again. I don't know what the rules are, but I would have thought they had discretion to decide not to go to his home. There is no indication that the kids are in any danger. They have what I understand is a lovely, loving mother. Children's Services needs to tell Gloria to stuff it.

When Tiger's mess started with the car crash, Children's Services in FL was very concerned about the home situation since it was suggested that Tiger's wife Elin had bashed him with something, possibly a golf club, that caused him to leave his house and resulted in the crash.

If all this happened, there are to kids under age two in that house. It doesn't matter WHO is doing the battering or how famous they are or how much they are worth, the children are still involved to some degree, and to what degree is the concern.

Childrens' Services has done the right thing.

This article is garbage: DCF doesn't reveal when they visit a home and ESPECIALLY never reveals the nature of a visit, unless the State Attorney's Office in Florida gets involved and approves it. This story is a fake.

LA so_called justice is a joke    

Hey TMZ -- here's something for you to check up on. I wonder if Elin's mother was the one who made the complaint? I had read she was only in the U.S. for a 1-wk visit; if she has to return to Sweden to her governor's job, maybe she privately made the call to make sure Elin and the babies would be OK after she left. If SHE made the call, I bet the Children's Welfare department would check in..........

love her!    

Ok yes he is an adulterous man but that is not a reason to get CPS involved. That is one of the lowest things you can do is getting cps involved. I don't side with Tiger on anything except this. CPS being involved is not ok and not right
