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."

@Q.t, Tiger is sick, he actually needs help to get away from the sex and girl conquering/addict. Elin has only been his shadow pupett to safe guard the family image. No that's gone forever and he has done it without help from anyone. As you blame Elin for Tiger purchasing sex, that is really todays low mark. Shame on you for humiliating Elin even more.

Poor
Elin! She really loved him and thought he loved her. He used her like most famous black athletes do. He wanted his cake and eat it too. Good for her! She never asked for this. She had no idea that he had multiple egomaniacal personalities. Bottom line is ....he cheated from the start in his other life and never thought that there was anything wrong with it. Didn't she wonder why she was getting sexually transmitted diseases? No one can screw around that much and not pass on something. He's a typical afro man needing sex everyday to prove he's something!! Nevermind what he did to his wife. I hope that her children have been tested for syphillis and her too.

Don't you just love it when your high-buck lawyer can't spell your name correctly, Ms Nordegren? But, then, he doesn't look too smart - if you get my drift.

Elin, I'm really happy for you, despite your heartbreak and embarrassment. I spent many years married to a cheater and they really don't change, they just get better at covering their lies and tracks.



You're a really wonderful woman. The very best to you.

I am in no way defending him or his actions. But why is it that so many people here need to state "he is a disgrace to his race?" Where and why and how does race become part of the issue?!! No one brings up race at all when it's Eliot Spitzer, David Letterman, or Matt Lauer, etc. People are so subconsciously racist, they don't even realize when they are being one. Americans still have along ways to go when it comes to race and we need to stop denying the fact that there is STILL A LOT of deep seated racism everywhere, right down to how we become so easily perturbed about everything our President does or does not do. And I am a non-black woman, who's somewhat tan skin is often mistaken as black and gets called the "n" word in small town America (in the north, NOT just the south). This is how messed up the average American is, ignorant and unconscious of what is really bothering them, the color of one's skin. And many racists LOVE to see a minority who has reached a level of success, only to fall from "grace" in whatever way they deem such a fall to be in their terms (religious, political, etc). Stop the "race talks" here people, it is irrelevant.

How come when an half bi-racial person is half black and half something else like CHINESE like Tiger er ummm ELDRICK is, people only bring up the Black half like with Obama, Obama is Half Irish!!! Tiger is half chinese too so dont make it about his half black side only, he is a disgrace to his Chinese part self too!

Stop attempting to diminish her beauty and intelligence by making reference to her being a "nanny" over and over, again! The traditional nanny is different from that of a "babysitter" and many of the young women who are true "nannies" are university educated (most educated to become preschool or elementary school teachers) and want to live elsewhere for the life experience. Her work as a college-educated nanny wasn't that different from Princess Diana prior to marriage.



Even with his gifted sports talent, fame, and money, Tiger Woods was blessed to marry someone lovely and with the values of Elin Nordegren who was a low-key, faithful wife and devoted mother, i.e. a young woman who loved the same person the rest of the world perceived him to represent. Leave this woman and their beautiful children alone as what he did to her was disgusting and he does have some type of psychological disorder to have kept so many sexual whores going at one time. Instead of returning to golf, he needs to go into deep psychotherapy so he doesn't subject another woman and children to this type of familial denigration.



One can only imagine the tests that Elin and her children have experienced (since the news) with him having put them in such a physically vulnerable position after being with so many whores who have been with hundreds or thousands of men. He deserves to have his twig and berries fall off....all the pigs who serviced him for money need to be imprisoned on a deserted island.

Tiger Woods the golfer: The greatest that sport will possibly ever see.. Tiger Woods the Man: A total piece of ****, garbage and whatever other description can be applied.. I hope this beautiful young woman takes him to the cleaners and then Nike drops his sponsorship... He deserves to lose it all after using such a fake image to deceive us all.. And I doubt anyone will miss his smart ass caddy either.. Good riddance.. I think this whole story has been worn out long ago and I just hope the divorce doesn't drag out so this whole thing can just go away.. It's not so bad being a normal average person afterall!!!
