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."

Elin is the christian in this marriage, and the bible permits divorce due to adultry. Elin forgave Tiger, Tiger forgives Elin, and they each want to go their separate ways. Elin should receive financial support above and beyond if Tiger wants to do the right thing. He lied to her when he should not have and his actions threatens her rights to a happy healthy life. Tiger was powerful and could have left Elin at anytime and been free to do as he wished.

Did everyone forget that Elin was a nanny? So if she gets 1mil that's more than what she had before she met him.

This is going to be about how much money she can get from Tiger, not about those precious children. Come on people, the girl is going to make a fortune off Tiger, she was working as a au pair when met Tiger. She signed a pre-nup, she should get exactly what that pre-nup says and no more, the children are the ones that should have the money, key word here is TRUST FUND, so mommy cant spend all their money. Elin can always work like all the other single mothers in the country.

POOR ELIN? Give me a break. She's not victim. I'll be glad when she's gone. Elin, go back to Sweden where you belong. Tiger, go back to golf.

yea right    

@14 YOU CRAZY!!!!!!!
Cheating with one woman might be excusable and yes forgivable, but GIRL YOU CRAZY (this comment sounds like a delusional woman).



I am a woman also, one who BELIEVES IN THE DEVOTION TO MARRIAGE.



BUT HE TOTALLY DISRESPECTED THIS WOMAN. I'm no fan of Elin either(don't know her, but she looks like she can be a hand full).




Even the BIBLE give you an out for "Infidelity", think about it.

Yes soWhat - the honorable thing to do if you are not happy in your marriage and don't want to try and fix it is leave before you humiliate yourself and your family.
Obviously Eldrick has no honor - and his entitlement issues as well as his drugs sent him on a road to debauchery and denial -
The only reason this issue has been inflaming so much public response is because he not only lied to Elin and his family but also lied to the public at large with his phoney image - of being this solid family man. So many of us now wish him nothing but the worst in life and many tragedies ahead - respect him - NO - believe anything he says - NO - He deserves a good smack-down!

Tiger empire is finally down,
- Bulging disc from the fire hydrant - no income.
- No Hank - No swing.
- No Elin - no family image
- IMG (his agent firm) about to leave with NIKE soon?
- He hired George W Bush PR agent - what has he done?



There is not much more to say, more than: Elin, nail the Tiger's cage!
