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.

Thx Anon! So let's do math - $45 million for the Jupiter Island house he's currently building - and how much for all the other houses he owns - what does that plane cost and how much to have a pilot and crew standby and ready to go and provide fuel & insurance for it - what kind of taxes does he pay yearly? How about the two yachts - He employs staff for his business how many and what are the salaries - It costs alot to operate and yes you do get to have nicer toys but "what you own ends up owning you"
From the figures you provided - he grosses about 63 million a year - Guess IRS must take a big chunk after expenses - but his charity would give him writeoffs - This whole matter is now about accountants and lawyers working it out -

It was said Elin broke the windows of the car Woods was in to try to get him out after he crashed the car. There's no proof she went after him with the golf club, but who could blame her if she had?! If it were me, and he put my health and my babies' health at risk while I was pregnant because he couldn't keep his pecker in his pants, I'd have probably shot him dead. Well, I'd at least feel like doing it. Kudos to Elin for not doing in the voodoo man, ghetto-thug wannabe.

Erica and other sick white bitches out there:



Get it straight. The nanny will get the pre-nup amount and child support. NOTHING MORE!!!



What do you idiots think? She gets more or half of the fortune he earned because she is white? What did dhe do to earn it? NOTHING, NADA!!! WTF She was married to the guy for barely five years. I believe that 20 milliom dollars is more than generous.

Tiger, first of all, does not consider himself to be black; this, from his own statement. Secondly, he was a child raised with mostly white people, and picked-up and carried their norms, not that of black people.



In regard to his sexual habits, and everyone elses, most people are only as loyal as their opportunities. If you had hundreds of people trying to sleep with you, everyday of your life, and you have your pick of them, from the below average, the just average, and the beautiful, and most beautiful--whatever is your type, and they tell you that they are willing to make your every sexual fantasy come true...whatever it may be, just how many people, including you, could, or would, withstand saying no? The answer? Not many, including you--and if you could say no, well, others whom you know or love, if they found themselves in that position, could not, and among their number, probably those whom you respect the most, from your mom to your dad, to your brothers, sisters, grandparents, cousins, uncles, aunts, teachers, doctors, cops in your community, fire emergency personel in your city...or town, and your neighbors, etc. Everyone has their sexual triggers, and if you have enough fame, money, and or, most importantly, power, to be able to sleep with whomever you want, like picking from a restaurant menu, sooner or later, you probably will taste the forbidden fruit. "All power corrupts, absolutely."



Lastly, if Elin tried to take my kids away from me, or attempted to force me to settle for ungodly sums of money over that which she is entitled to by the law, if I was Tiger, I would simply tell the court that she is violent and that she tried to kill me on the night of my accident (the car crash), this...being something that the media already believes to be factual. Now, which do you think the courts would find worse, domestic violence...or a cheater? No matter how many people you may have slept with, while married, courts do not like abusive people being in the care of children. Elin had better go for joint custody, and fair financial settlement, or she may just find herself without the kids, and in jail...for domestic violence!!!

I hope Tiger gets custody of the kids and Elin has to pay child
support and that Elin ends up begging for crumbs in Iceland or France or wherever she is from.

What a funny team of lawers Tiger Woods has. How unlogic to speak about Elins lawers leaking to the media. Tiger woods did not just let informtion about his marriage leak out to the media, he gave an emotional and well directed press conferance about the fact that he did cheated on his wife! His legal team has no right to make any demand on what Elins lawers tell the press on her behalf if they chose to. If things leak out and as long as it helps Elin, so what!
