“Tiger wasn’t invited,” a source familiar with the situation told “She’s been very upset with him and was in a bad mood all week.”

Tiger informed her that he was giving his first interview on Sunday. He spoke to ESPN for five minutes near their home.


Elin left her Orlando-area home on Friday and drove to Palm Beach County. She spent the weekend on the yacht, which has a full crew. She spent significant time with her friend and returned to Orlando on Sunday evening.

Elin is still living in the house she rented after Tiger’s cheating scandal exploded. While at one point she had agreed to move back in with Tiger, she has not. And that, according to the source, is because their relationship has had as many – if not more – setbacks as advances in the aftermath of his many affairs being revealed.’s exclusive photos show that Elin, looking fit and beautiful, flashed a rare smile for much of her time away from Tiger.

The yacht stayed docked the entire time Elin and the children were there.

“She needed to get away,” the source told “She’s been under so much pressure.

“And Tiger was not invited. She wanted to be without him.”

As previously reported, Elin hired a divorce attorney but put the divorce on hold. Tiger has told her he will do anything to win her back. And at one point they were making great progress, and were spotted hugging outside in their neighborhood.

But when Tiger announced his return to golf, Elin questioned if he was sincere about rebuilding his life or just wanted his career back. She traveled to Hattiesburg, Mississippi to take part in his therapy and also flew to Arizona with him.

But this past week porn star Joceyln James released text messages she said were from Tiger. And as first reported, Elin simply can’t get over the fact that he slept with a porn star.

“It devastates her,” the source said. “The whole situation is unthinkable for her, but then to throw a porn star in the mix, it just makes her feel like she didn’t even know her husband.”

Elin returned to her rented house late Sunday when Tiger was done giving interviews.
