Tiger Woods' wife is considering taking their two children and moving to South Florida, RadarOnline.com has learned.
Elin Nordergren and the children currently are in China visiting her brother and she’s looking to permanently put some distance between herself and Tiger. RadarOnline.com learned that as divorce talks have progressed, Elin has indicated a desire to move to South Florida.
Tiger’s 10-acre ocean-front Jupiter Island home is nearing completion as RadarOnline.com reported Monday.
Elin has not said that she wants that mansion and one source says she may want to be a little further south, close to friends.
She is expected to get $750 million in a divorce.
As RadarOnline.com was first to report, Elin now wants full custody of the children, according to a source familiar with the situation. That stance could cause problems.
Previously it appeared Elin wanted to take the children and move back to Sweden, a situation that had great potential for creating problems with Tiger, who wants to be near his children. Elin took the children to Sweden for vacation recently -- a story RadarOnline.com broke. RadarOnline.com also obtained exclusive photos of them leaving.
Elin’s pattern is no mystery: she’s creating a life without Tiger, traveling regularly and rarely interacting with him. They live approximately a mile apart and their relationship has grown worse since his return to golf.
“Ein has good friends in South Florida,” one source said recently. “She has spent time with them this year and she’s interested in moving to the area.
“It could be the perfect way to avoid big problems in the divorce. Tiger isn’t going to like it if she moves back to Sweden. And if she has any chance on Tiger not fighting her on the full custody issue, then he’s going to want to see his kids regularly.
“If Elin stays in the area that would be much easier.”
Elin has a one year deal on the rental house she moved into after Tiger’s cheating scandal was exposed. Moving to South Florida would put her only hours away from Tiger by car, a situation that could be acceptable to both.
