Tiger Woods and Elin Nordegren are still married but Elin is building her own life and refusing to put back on her wedding rings, RadarOnline.com is reporting.
As RadarOnline.com was first to reveal, Elin stormed out on Tiger Wednesday and decided to spend several nights away from him, traveling to the Sony tennis tournament in Miami with one of their children.
Tiger, practicing for the Masters, was not invited.
“Tiger’s schedule had nothing to do with it,” a source close to the couple told RadarOnline.com. “Elin made it clear she didn’t want him with her. She is more independent now than ever.”
One outward sign of that independence was obvious again this week – Elin refused to put back on her wedding rings.
“That’s a sign to Tiger and a sign to the world,” the source said. “She didn’t divorce him but she may never able to forgive him.”
One key difference between Tiger and Elin says the source is that Tiger truly wants everything he once had back and he wants it now.
“Elin understands things will never be the same,” the source said.
“So she’s moving forward with her life, but it’s a new life. And she may not know exactly where it’s going to go, but she knows where she doesn’t want it to go – and that’s back to the way it was.”
As RadarOnline.com first reported, Tiger and Elin are not living in the same house, despite Tiger asking her to move back in. She is upset with his quick return to golf and it made her question his sincerity, the source said.
“He has a lot to prove to her,” the source added.
