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."

I agree with Trish. $20 million per mistress sounds about right. I hope this lawyer is good.

Elin should have gotten the lawyer that repped Paul McCartney in his divorce.

To #14: You have nerve saying that Elin should honor her vows and stand beside Tiger when he blew their vows into a million pieces by having affairs over many, many years with many, many women. How long did he honor their vows??? Elin stood by him, loved him, trusted him, honored her vows and thought he was doing the same. I don't see how she could ever trust him again, and once trust is gone you have nothing because doubt will always creep in.

tiger should have told the truth about her taking that club to his azz, he could have used it for leverage, but since he said on national TV that she in fact tried to help him it'll be kind of hard to back peddle now. but good for her, get you $ome Elin!

Only a low-life woman would refer to her as a money-hungry 'lezzie' and say she should forgive him. It isn't surprising--with some of the comments since two weeks after Thanksgiving weekend when the news broke about his onslaught of sick and disgusting affairs--that AIDS and other sexually-transmitted diseases run rampant in a certain economic group of the American black race and white trash. He had everything...a beautiful, non-prejudice Swedish wife, a lovely daughter and son under the age of two years, in-laws from upper society in Sweden, and anywhere between $500,000,000 and $1 Billion dollars in his bank accounts and/or investments. How could any woman trust a man who would shred her heart, denigrate her, denigrate their children, and denigrate the sanctity of marriage by not having affairs with just a couple of women but all those disgusting swines, plus the awareness that he has slept with over 100 low-life women. This young woman and mother deserves all the money the Courts will give her and the children as his career will never be what it was before his swines began breaking the news, and he paid off the one with $10 million. No honorable man or husband would do what Tiger Woods did to this woman and nobody should be making light of it. I'm not even going to tell you what I really think of trashy Uglitel and the rest of the swines who have no conscience and who are, basically, without souls.

She's screwed! Her lawyer is totally out of his league. Tiger's legal team will bend him over the fence and have their way with him like he's one of Tiger's bimbos.



I suppose Elin was stupid enough to marry and have kids with Tiger. She should be used to getting the shaft so it shouldn't be too bad....

I cannot believe people are bashing Elin!



Tiger woods did an unforgivable act.



I would be very surprised if she actually did not catch a bad/fatal disease from him/ or his kids since she was prego when he started doing this...



What if she and the kids have hep-c or hiv or herpes or all of the above?



Oh your right he rich so he can't catch std's!



No condoms with hookers? (escorts are hookers damnit)



for all we know, His #1 mistress has a 10mil dollar disease to keep quiet about!

e.zipper - you must be an idiot! Perhaps if "Eldrick" had strayed once or twice Elin could forgive him but he was schtupping everything in sight - while she was giving birth to their children - while his Dad was dying - lying to her and blaming her for "spoiling" their Thanksgiving! 121 and counting - that's just not honoring HIS marriage vows a bit too far for forgiveness - waitresses in cars, porn stars, c*ocktail waitresses - And the young Neighbour girl - He's lucky he wasn't my husband - He'd still be in a coma!

Good for Elin. I do not see how she could have stayed. He humiliated her and disgraced himself.



P.S. Tiger can say he is Asain because he is....he is also Black. He does not have to identify himself as one race or the other. He should also not deny half of his race either but to each his own. He is rich enough to not give a crap about what people think about him anyway.
