Tiger and Elin were both present at Bay County Circuit Court in Panama City, Florida earlier today for the execution of their divorce agreement ... this according to court officials.

The divorce docs do not reveal details about the split -- and the terms of the settlement were not disclosed.  But as TMZ first reported, Elin is set to receive $100 million from Tiger.

Elin's lawyers released the following statement on behalf of the couple: "We are sad that our marriage is over and we wish each other the very best for the future."

The statement continues, "While we are no longer married, we are the parents of two wonderful children and their happiness has been, and will always be, of paramount importance to both of us."

"Once we came to the decision that our marriage was at an end, the primary focus of our amicable discussions has been to ensure their future well-being. The weeks and months ahead will not be easy for them as we adjust to a new family situation, which is why our privacy must be a principal concern."

Beauty and the Beast have gone separate ways. Good for Elin!! He cheated with AT LEAST 121 skanks, sluts, prostitutes, porn stars, bimbos. I hope and pray he didn't give her and the children some incurable, fatal disease.

Elin, here's wishing you a long, healthy, and happy life without the animal. He chased after you even after you refused to go out with him several times. He would not take "No" for an answer. He obviously has serious character flaws to say the least.

Wow #63 your a total moron.
To sum up your "advice": Tiger should date a hot, intelligent doctor/CEO/lawyer, who is worth at least 500 million and a virgin?
Those are some really good dating tips you have. Is it working for you alright?

WHy are some of you sad for Tiger!?! Get a life and stop giving sorry advice! That 100 million is NOT all THAT HARD EARNED, TIGER IS NOT A PLASTIC SURGEON, HE'S A GOLFER FOR CRYING OUT LOUD!! HAHAHA!

That money was NOT sooooo hard to earn, he had a great time doing it and got lucky that he developed an OVER RATED TALENT.

There are garbage men who work harder than Tiger, he LUCKED OUT WITH PLAYING A WEALTHY MAN'S SPORT, so get over it you losers!

100 million is a DROP in the bucket for him! NOT A DISASTER, BOO HOO, NOT!! Just some greens!

And if he cared about the money, he NEVER WOULD HA CHEATED ON HIS WIFE, HE OBVIOUSLY DID NOT CARE!! So get over it! What Elin lost was GREATER THAN THE MONEY SHE GOT!

You are s*** bags who think it's all about money! Her life, her marriage, her family = all broken! Money cannot fix that, and I hope it doesnt hurt her self esteem. She's gorgeous, and was TOO GOOD FOR UGLY CHIP MUNK TIGER!

If you do not know how to handle and treat a porsche then do not buy one! He married a high end gal, and classy gal, one who expected fidelity, since THOSE ARE THE VOWS= FIDELITY!

Tiger's not fit to clean my toilets, he's gross! YUCK!!!! DISEASE INFESTED, FOWL!!!!!

Tiger got a good hit of reality. He thought is was different then other black males. No! YOU Are Not Different, you're just a fool. Taboo baby! Maybe you will be able to get your game back, but mentally you are whipped. You thought you were OJ I see. This time stay single, and you can screw the help all day long. Dumass, she was just like the women you were running around with prostitues. Now, she is raising your children. Maybe you can take a page from Bill Clinton with Monica. Monica didn't wash the dress or her ass. Now is it worth 100 million dollars to you and your dignity. Try looking in the mirror.

Sad but wonderful news! It's finally over and Elin who handled herself with the dignity and class she was born into can go on with her life. She's shown herself to be a wonderful mother for her children and has the support of a large and loving family and group of friends. May she find peace and happiness.

@ GDslayer, you sound PATHETIC!

Since you're not worth 500 million, please do stop giving advice! We're not interested! Tiger slept with hookers, so he took your advice, wow you are dim!

100 million is NOTHING, so stop losing sleep over it, it's a drop in the bucket, why are you so fixated on it!

Tiger's luck has been FLUSHED DOWN THE TOILET, ALONG WITH HIS OVER RATED TALENT!

@LYNN, you are dim.

Did you write such words when Michael Jordan had to pay out his black wife? EH?

This has nada to do with color, and all to do with INTEGRITY, OF WHICH TIGER HAD NONE.

He's a low life s***! He had no respect for his WIFE WITH WHOM HE EXCHANGED VOWS!!

Some of you people see race everywhere, when it's about MORALITY, INTEGRITY, AND WEDDING VOWS, SHEESH!!

Why you guys so worried about Elin's settlement?!

She deserves every penny!

Did anyone blog about MICHAEL JORDAN'S PAYOUT OF 168 MILLION DOLLARS TO HIS WIFE, EH? Did anyone worry about that one? Largest celebrity payout in HISTORY!!!

Those athletes can't keep their peens in the pants, that's their illness. Skums! Losers, they deserve the monetary loss, b'c they were IDIOTS!

ALL THE ABOVE INFORMATION IS A MATTER OF PUBLIC RECORD

Here is what I am finding hard to accept:
• How does a man default on over $8, 000, 000 in construction loans from Regions Bank, File for and get approved for bankruptcy, and in the meantime form and develop a new business with the man who was the main contact with Regions Bank for both companies?

• How does Regions Bank allow for the overdraft of a "purchase card" to reach over $140, 000 before turning it off (as laid out in lawsuit)?

• Donald Lake was an executive with Regions bank and the position of Vice President of Private Banking.

• Donald Lake leaves his position with Regions Bank after 6 ½ years to go into business with Mitch Menaker.

• Mitch Menaker opened two specialty stores in Winter Park, Reclaim The Fame and Reclaim The Past using monies from construction loans from both Regions and Mercantile banks.

• Investors who lost their life savings in my ponsie scheme:
Chuck G. $25, 000
Ed K. $308, 000
Jack L. $100, 000
Jacki R. $350, 000
Linda C. $75, 000
Marti H. $100, 000
Helen S. $50, 000
Patti G. $1, 400, 000
Ron G. $225, 000

@ SABINAL, you're off with your comparison!

Charlie Sheen did NOT create a choir boy image!!! Those broads KNEW who Charlie was! And when he was with da hoes, he was NOT MARRIED!!!

That first wife was an actress who was HIGHLY AWARE OF CHARLIE'S PIMPIN WAYS!! WITH HEIDI!

Tiger's been A LIAR! HE's LIED TO THE WORLD ABOUT HIS CHOIR BOY IMAGE, AND IF HAD WERE A BAD BOY, THEN WE WOULD NOT CARE!! A ROD'S A BAD BOY, AND NO ONE CARES!!! HE'S OPEN ABOUT IT!

Tiger;s a FAKE ARSE HYPOCRITE, DISEASE INFESTED SKUZZBALL, NEEDS CLOROX ON HIS INNARDS, HE'S GROSS!

Tiger lied to everyone about his character, as he carefully created this FAKE IMAGE!

Not the same at all.

If Eldredge wants to resurrect his image he should consider dating or at least f------ some of the most beautiful women in the world. I am talking about women of color. They would treat him with more respect than the trash he is sleeping with now.
