No 'Oprah' for Elin

7/3/2010 11:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Tiger Woods' soon-to-be ex-wife is about to become an independently wealthy woman, but we've learned she's legally prohibited from blabbing about it.

0702_elin_woods_EX

Sources tell TMZ Elin Nordegren and Tiger have agreed to a confidentiality clause as part of their divorce settlement.  So Elin can't go on "Oprah," she can't do interviews, and she can't write a book.

But what she gets in return is nothing to sneeze at.  TMZ broke the story, Elin will snag about $100 million in the settlement ... way more than she was entitled to under the prenup.

Why, you ask, would Tiger give her more than she'd get under the prenup?  Other than guilt, Tiger wanted to avoid a trial at all costs ... the testimony would have been beyond messy.

AIDS, HIV, STD'S, sicko creep Tiger put his wife at risk for ALL those, as the wh0res all said he did NOT use protection. He put Elin's life in danger. If the situation were reversed he'd probably try to take her for everything. $100 Million is NOT enough for what he did and put her through. These diseases can lie dormat and not show up for years. I think this obviously should have been her defense and she should have threatened to take him to court, the creep would have settled more decently with her if he knew he was ging to really be dragged moreso through the mud. Elin is a decent person and did not do this because of the kids. She should have gotten half at least, of what he is worth. $100 Mil for possible AIDS, $100 Mill for possible HIV, $100 Mill for possible STD'S. What she is ending up with is a joke, he and his lawyers are having a good laugh right now. I wish he'd disappear forever, the guy makes me want to puke. Go away forever you perverted lying sicko creep Tiger Woods. God I wish/hope you never win another golf tournament.

Who does he think he is ?????????????? Psycho creep who couldn't keep in his pants. A sex addict my ass !!! Rather a pervert horndog who thinks with his little head.
The world doesn't revolve around a stupid golfer who can hit a little white golf ball. He must believe he's some kind of God. He's just another douchebag, a gutter rat who should disappear form the game of golf. The PGA tour should have banned him John Daly was banned and he didn't do half the things this jackass did.

Anyway sooner or later the truth will come out and it will.
PEDs = END OF CAREER .............

What about the children? All I hear is Tiger/Elin attorneys trying to screw the parents pocketbooks!!! Who can win when this game is ALL in the sake of more money for everyone involved, except those beautifully inocent children?

People will bitch and call her a gold-digger because she took the confidentiality agreement in exchange for money.

The funny thing is, had she gone on Oprah and talked about her divorce, people will still bitch and say she's whiney, etc etc.

Some people (usually men like Tiger, or men who wish for Tiger's lifestyle because they delusionally think it's appealing), hate this woman no matter what. They refuse to see any wrong in Tiger.

They refuse to see that no matter what, it all comes down to the fact that he willingly chose to get married, make vows, and then went back on them, hundreds of times. All of this while having unprotected sex, which Elin was not aware of (and considering the bar trash he slept with, STD's are not a far cry).

You do not know whether or not she loved him when they got married, and whether or not she was just doing it to get money. But if she was doing it just to get money, it still doesn't matter. He is still the one who triggered the divorce. He is still the one who risked her life. He is still the one who cheated on her with over a hundred women. He gave her a reason to divorce him and take half his money.

Quite frankly, she's not getting as much as she deserves. But at least she doesn't have to deal with that pig anymore. No matter what his golfing ability, he will forever be society's joke.

SHE MUST TALK she has the right to tell her side of the story. Paying for her silence ? Is this a joke ? What does he want to hide so badly ? The whole world already knows what a phoney this guy is ; he can win again but his image is tarnished forever.
From all the doctors there are in the US why did he have to choose a Canadian whose reputation is far from being clean ?
However if the public is to learn he used Performance Enhancing Drugs it's bye bye Mr Woody.
At least he could always find a reconversion in the porn industry.

@4 Are you stupid?
AIDS is the name for the combination of symptoms caused by the HIV virus when it has done enough damage to the immune system of a person. Do some research first before you start talking about HIV and AIDS.

ALL YOU THAT THINK THAT ELIN DID NOT KNOW WHAT WAS GOING ON WHEN SHE MARRIED TIGER. I THINK YOU BETTER CHECK YOUR OWN PARTNER, BECAUSE WHY DID YOU THINK SHE GOT THAT MUCH MONEY. SHE ALREADY HAD IT PLANNED AND MOST LIKELY WAS THE ONE WHO CALLED THE MEDIA. GOLDDIGGER!!!!!!!

Not everyone has to go on Orpah to bare their souls. I suppose if you had some book you were promoting it would be worth doing, but otherwise?

As for Elin being a golddigger...is Tiger Woods so stupid that he didn't realise what would happen if his philadering was discovered? I also don't think that a person who wasn't emotionally involved would have bashed him with a golfclub when she found evidence of what he'd been up to. She wasn't just in it for the money.

Tiger Woods is screwed up in more ways than one. Isn't it nice that he has so much money that he can pay off his ex and still have plenty left over. The man makes me sick.

that chick had a plan all along...She know what was up with Tiger way before everyone thinks...I think if she would have kept her cool for another 3-6 months she would have got a lot more and Tiger would have been in WAY OVER his head...I think she jumped the gun...

Adele you are a fu$$$ing idiot . Calling her a gold digger just to make Tiger look good. You are beyond stupid like all the Cheetah lovers. You are in denial and just can't figure out how your super hero could fall so low .....
Don't make excuses for him because he doesn't give a damn about you idiot and anybody else for that matter. Nobody forced him to date her , to marry her and to have kids with her.
Nobody forced him to bed every bimbo in sight. Nobody forced him to use as many women as sex objects.
You sound to me like those stupid starlets who slept with little Tiger . Hey take your chance ... he's rich beyond dreams.

Elin did not need (nor want) the attention that being with Tiger brought. She was from a wealthy, high-achieving family and very intelligent. The way she has conducted herself since her world blew up is to be admired. She honestly loved the jerk and we all know that love is blind.

Man, what is Tiger hiding to keep all these women silent? We mostly know what he did thanks to Joslyn. I'd love to know his 'big' secret that is worth $110,000,000 (between Elin and Rachel).
