Goodbye Tiger, hello Sweden: Elin Nordegren, the 29-year-old wife of Tiger Woods, is leaving the United States with the couple’s two children — and without Tiger — for her native country of Sweden, according to new reports; the only question is for how long, be it just the holidays — or a permanent move.
“Two stewardesses and one pilot are in Sweden with the plane now, getting it ready to come pick them up,” a source told People. According to the magazine, a pre-scandal Woods and Nordegren had planned a family trip to Nordegren’s homeland for January, but now she will go a month early and a Tiger short.
Another report, from Fox News, claims that Nordegren will be moved out of the family’s Windemere, Florida mansion by next week and headed for her homeland permanently.
Nordegren’s marital problems were thrust into the national spotlight following the golfer’s November 27 car accident. The incident, which was preceded by an explosive fight, came on the heels of the National Enquirer’s bombshell revelation Tiger had been having an affair with breathtaking NYC party girl Rachel Uchitel. Since then, the world-famous golfer has been accused of affairs with more than a dozen women scattered across the country.
