Tiger Woods’ wife Elin has returned to the U.S. from China, RadarOnline.com has learned exclusively.
The beautiful blonde is back at her Orlando-area home after visiting her brother in Shanghai.
Elin returned several days ago and she is considering a reunion in California with her estranged husband, RadarOnline.com learned exclusively.
But it won’t be a romantic get-together – things between Tiger and Elin are still ice cold.
Tiger is in Pebble Beach, California playing in the U.S. Open. The couple’s daughter Sam turns 3 on Friday and Tiger does not want to miss her birthday. Elin may fly to California with the children – or she may have her nannies take the kids.
“She hasn’t decided yet,” a source close to the situation told RadarOnline.com. “It’s not like she’s dying to see Tiger. But she doesn’t want to keep Sam away from him on her birthday, either.”
Professionally, Tiger had his best day Wednesday since coming back to the pro tour. While he is still ranked Number 1 he has struggled but he looked sharp at practice Wednesday.
As RadarOnline.com exclusively reported, Elin left for China on June 4. She took the couple’s two children with her as she went to visit her brother in Shanghai.
Elin and Tiger have been living separately since last year, when he got in-patient treatment for sex addiction. That was after his secret cheating life was exposed as details of his affair with Rachel Uchitel were published by the National Enquirer. Tiger was eventually linked to approximately 15 more women.
Elin participated in Tiger’s therapy but she moved out of their home and rented a house about a mile away in their Orlando suburban gated community. She and Tiger appeared to grow closer – until he announced his return to the pro tour.
“Now they barely speak,” the source told RadarOnline.com. “She used to drop the children off at his house and go inside and talk to him. Not anymore. She has the nanny take the kids.
“Every once in a while she’ll be in the car outside of Tiger’s house, but she never goes inside.”
Tiger and Elin both hired divorce lawyers but did not file papers. Several sources say Elin is seeking $750 million.
She has spent more and more time away from Tiger in the past few months. Before going to China, Elin took the children to her native Sweden. She also spent several nights in South Florida for a tennis tournament, spent a weekend in Palm Beach County on the couple’s yacht and flew to Arizona by herself for nearly a week. Tiger was not invited on any of those trips.
