Tiger Woods' Wife

Lawyers Up

5/13/2010 4:49 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Wife Lawyers Up
Sources tell TMZ Elin Nordegren has hired a lawyer to rep her in her divorce from Tiger Woods -- a lawyer who has some deep Nordegren connections.

We're told Elin hired Walter H. White, Jr. from a law firm in London. Elin's sister, Josefin, works at the law firm.

TMZ spoke with White this morning, who would neither confirm nor deny if he repped Elin.

But after our conversation this AM, we've learned White sent an email to his staff, noting that "TMZ the web news service has discovered that we in London represent Elin Nordgren [sic]."

In his email, White also stated, "... the announcement that we are representing Elin is likely to bring the office under a microscope such as it has not faced previously."

Tiger Woods sucked the life out of her, poor Elin? Imagine if she would have never married and became an actress a long time ago, she might have given reese witherspoon a run for her withermoney, lol

Elin is setting herself up to take the children to Sweden. Tiger can fly in his private plan to see them.

In May 2009, Forbes magazine estimated that Tiger Woods' total net worth is $60...0 million. - That means elin is entitled for 300 million.

She has hired a black attorney. What a slap for mr Huge Ego. He denigrated his own race.
Go Elin !!!!! Every decent person in this world is rooting for you.
Suck him every single penny you can from this jerk.
You deserve it. Fight for what is yours.
He gave one of his whores 10M$ to shut up and he has the nerves to give her less than that. She was his wife and she's the mother of his kids and still he has more respect for a slut.

I hope Elin leaves Tiger with nothing but a dollar in his pocket and half a set of golf clubs. That consummate azzwipe doesn't deserve any more than that. He is a disgrace to his race, his gender and his species!

Jesus, TMZ, these lawyers have real jobs that involve dealing with real issues. They're not stuck in LaLaLand like you, chasing around self-important idiots and reporting on their banal existences as if that information were anything significant or relevant to the rest of society. Yes, it's fun and entertaining to read about celebrities, but when people like you start interfering with people who have ACTUAL work, it's totally inappropriate. You guys take yourselves a little too seriously, and in doing so, you create a lot of grief for others.
