Elin's Lawyers Accused of Leaks in Tiger Divorce

5/14/2010 5:15 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Things have already gotten nasty in the Tiger Woods divorce.  TMZ has learned Tiger's lawyers have accused Elin Nordegren's legal team of leaking like a sieve to the media.

Elin's Lawyers

Elin's lawyer, Walter H. White, Jr., who practices in London, sent an email to his staff on April 19, 2010 -- an email obtained by TMZ.  White warns his people, "Recently we have been accused by the other side of leaking information to the press.  While we do not believe that anyone in the firm has been responsible for the leaks, we are aware that this is the second time that we have been so accused ... "

White urges his staff to "avoid conversations relating to firm activities in public ..."

After we called White on Wednesday and told him we had information he was repping Elin, he sent a staff email saying, "TMZ the web news service has discovered that we in London represent Elin Nordegren ... " 

The email notes that Elin's sister, Josefin, works at the firm and then boasts, "To some extent it is a surprise and a tribute to the office and the firm that it has taken them so long to figure this out."

As we reported yesterday, White was already repping Elin in January -- a month and a half after Tiger's car crash.

It's obvious that the lawyer's office has a leak if TMZ keeps obtaining emails. But does that mean that the lawyer himself is somehow providing them? Nope. If Elin's sister already works there, then it's no surprise that Elin would choose this guy.

Hope she is able to be treated fairly, and that she and the kids end up happier in the long run. At least they're safer from the Paparazzi in Sweden.

LOL... half his fortune? What do you think he is, naive? No man worth $1 Billion goes into a marriage without a pre-nup...

The details are already there... she walks away with $20 Million... Not for 5 or so years of marriage... That works out to $4 million a year... not bad work for a nanny... I dare say you won't find many nannies out there making that kind of money...

Gues what ZR... no one pays to see a nanny! LOL... might want to turn on the TV next time a PGA tournament is on, and see how many people are watching Tiger... There's a reason Nike still pays him $50 million a year! Not to mention another $50 million in endorsements...

Tiger's lucky... At a pre-nup of $20 million, it will probably take him 2-3 months to pay that off.... not bad at all!

Isn't the prenup a beautiful thing?

It is a shame the children will lose out so badly. In this country it seems our culture teaches children we do not forgive and we kick somebody when they are down. I used to think Elin had plenty of class by avoiding the spotlight but of late it seems there is constant leaking of information about her whereabouts and her divorce. He cheated and got caught and everybody deserves a second chance especially where children are concerned. They are already being taught to go to their parents separately. What happens to them on birthdays and holidays? What a shame!

Obviously nobody's leaking to the press. TMZ is psychic.
And, if you are FIRST, as so many people seem to have that as a major life goal, does that mean you in fact have no life other than to stare at the TMZ Web site 24/7?

Jason Chambers and Dan you are both f$$$ing idiots !!!!!!
You are beyond pathetic. Who cares about this guy ? Like I said what he does for a living is useless in this world. My God I have much more respect for a wielder than this jerk.
You both need to go back to reality. This is a guy who spent his whole life lying, cheating and deceiving. He's not even human. Not a decent man is capable to destroy his family like he did without feeling remorseful. He's fake, phoney and a complete jackass.
As far as I am concerned I hope he crashes and burns. The world doesn't need this kind of stupid immoral repugnant pervert to look at. He has made a fortune on a complete hoax. If he has an ounce of decency he should give back this money !!!!

Well Jason not everyone wants to live in the US nor would I say the US does a great job at education.
As for Tiger he will never be great again the because of the noise going on in his head and the glares from the spectators. You just know that half the spectators are thinking you pig this is a gentlemen sport.
Pig pig pig
Go Elin

This guy is so wrapped up in himself, a total narcissist. Over time he will wake up to the fact that how you are perceived as a person is more important than how much money you make. The public now perceives him as a typical womanizing Black male who has no regards for his children or the females he associates with. That perception will be hard to overcome.

Rachel es una puta    

Shut up Mr Woods !!!!! You and your lawyers are a bunch of losers.
After what you put Elin and your family through you'd better give her everything she's asking for.
Nobody is leaking information. This is you and your enablers who are the nasty ones in this sordid story. Nobody puts the blame on Elin.
Everybody - you still have a bunch of pathetic fans - and everything are against you.
Do you truly believe we will forget what you did and what you really are ???? We are not stupid and we won't be fooled anymore.
BTW how's the neck ???? Pretty well judging by the shooting of your commercial. You don't seem to be bothered by an injury. Another fake excuse to prove how incredibly immoral you are and always will be .
