Elin Nordegren -- From Tiger to Puma?

12/16/2009 1:40 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

While Tiger Woods is losing sponsors left and right, TMZ has learned his wife, Elin Nordegren, is "very close" to signing a deal of her own ... and the company happens to be Nike's archenemy -- Puma.

An official from Puma -- the athletic wear company -- has confirmed they are in "internal discussions" to sign Elin as a spokesperson for a new Swedish-inspired clothing line called Tretorn.

The rep tells us Puma is after Elin because they feel she's "a good brand fit."

We could not reach Elin for comment.

62. ummm... why? what has she done that qualifies her for an endorsement deal? "my husband cheated on me, so buy these sneakers." *blank stare*

Why not? Who would be better for their Swedish line? She's beautiful, classy, popular, has modeling experience, and since it's for their Swedish line she would be perfect as a spokesperson. I'll bet Puma was probably already looking for a beautiful Swedish model even before this Tiger mess. It will be a huge success!

A puma's maximum weight is 230lb, whilst the tiger is the largest cat in the world and can weigh up to 660lb, with correspondingly larger teeth and claws. Tigers are immensely strong animals, capable of taking down huge prey such as gaur, water buffalo and even young elephants.

Tretorn? Hhmmm,,,they manufactured wellies.....whatever....life's forever changing.
TMZ's WW coverage is not yet to be trusted. Leave Elin alone, she has enough on her plate right now.
Concentrate on Tiger, he has some explaining to do.

I hope Elin makes all the right choices to become financially independent. Go girl.

by yeah right: "Take what you get elin everything comes with a price. It’s just very sad that you included two kids in your plan to get rich quick. That was very selfish of you."

What the heck do you know about that? Do you know Elin personally, did you discuss this with her over the kitchen table?

Even though you don't find him attractive, maybe she did. (Btw, she didn't need his money or his fame.) You are insensitive and very rude.

Tretorn is not new. I wore Tretorn in the 80's before I discovered the original Punk scene - not this new-age $200-trendy-mohawk-on-a-spicy-Abercrombie-model BS. Or neon pink and lime green peace signs plastered on every little girl under 12. Thank You Justice and Hollister for bastardizing all that was cool about the 80's.

69. I am an average looking black woman and the mere thought of making love to tiger makes my skin crawl. Yes America elin fell in love with tiger because of his charms personality and good looks nothing else. Give me a break. Take what you get elin everything comes with a price. It’s just very sad that you included two kids in your plan to get rich quick. That was very selfish of you. There is a woman out there for everyone and I know and America knows that you’re not the one for tiger. I have spoken to asian women and I’ve been told that they don’t find him attractive. You married him for the money elin. Now you’ve got exactly what you wanted. even a shoe deal too. white women

You need to be more concerned about mastering the English language by using puncuations and proper sentence structures. I highly predict all of your relationship advice falling on deaf ears to anyone with half a brain occupying their skull.

Stop worrying about celebrities, white women who marry men and your fantasy of a world famous athletes actually wanting to make love to you. Your skin should never crawl concerning this thought process, because it will never happen.


America fell in love with Tiger because he broke world records at a young age and is a golf superstar!!! In closing, Elin Woods speaks at least two languages and is fluent in English. Can't say the same for you. Each time you identify yourself as a black woman on the internet, you disgrace black women dead, alive and haven't even been born yet.

This whole story is so tragic. It shows clearly that nobody can buy happiness for money. People get rich, for various reasons. They get all the attention his fame and his riches. In the end, they believe firmly that they are special in society and can do whatever they want. Morality is no longer in their world. But one day crack the facade, which we can see evidence of .. over and over again. "What we sow we reap". It's true. Whose fault is that? Is it the media who write them to the small gods? Maybe .. The ultimate responsibility must still be added to each. Money is not happiness. Away with these gigantic sums of money in sport .. be down to earth ...People have put up money as a god. So sick! Happiness lies not in owning millions or billions. Enough is the best. To have a home and food and clothing, and family. And to be grateful for it.
