Tiger Woods‘ wife, Elin Nordegren, who has already been spotted in public sans wedding ring, has begun seeking legal representation to represent her in a forthcoming divorce, according to various Web reports Wednesday.
The 29-year-old mother-of-two reportedly has meetings slated for next week with top legal professionals to blueprint a split that could cost the golfer as much as half of his billion dollar fortune.
One name that had been mentioned, though remains unconfirmed, is lawyer Sorrell Trope, who has handled proceedings for stars including Nicole Kidman, Nicolas Cage and Britney Spears.
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.
