Tiger Woods and Elin Nordegren divorce official

There are millions of photos of Tiger plastered over the internet so we will have one of Elin today. She is much better looking anyway.

Tiger Woods and Elin Nordegren have officially divorced, nine months after Tigers Cadillac SUV became an innocent victim when revelations of serial adultery came to light.

Elin rightly took to him with a golf club but the SUV saved him from serious damage. The distraction of having the mother of your children trying to kill him meant he thanked the SUV by driving it into a tree. Even though he wasn’t hurt much he begged the medics to take him to hospital for his own safety.

With adultery it is rare that any relationship can survive.Tiger made all the right noises in public but the sheer scale of his betrayal meant there was no road back.

The divorce was filed in Bay County Circuit Court in Florida. The couple had married in October 2004 in Barbados and have two children, daughter Sam, 3 and son Charlie, 19 months.

The joint statement released by their respective attorney’s belied the level of emotion that would have gone on behind the scenes “We are sad that our marriage is over and we wish each other the very best for the future. While we are no longer married, we are the parents of two wonderful children and their happiness has been, and will always be, of paramount importance to both of us.” (well at least one of you)

Terms of the divorce have remained private and Tiger and Elin will “share parenting” of the children.

If a leopard can’t change its spots what chance that a Tiger can change his stripes? Or will the children be asking mommy – “Why does daddy have so many lady assistants to read him bedtime stories?”

This is a sad ending to what was once – publicly anyway – a fairytale marriage. Rumours are rife that Steve Williams is going to get a divorce as well. His settlement will not be quite so generous as Elin’s, because they didn’t have any children together.

When Tiger has lost the two most central people in his life in recent years maybe then in the emptiness he might realise that it was his choice to betray his wife. He is not suffering from some addiction, rather he is the victim of his own desires.

Newswarped is a bit ticked off that many meida outlets around the world are reporting that ‘Tiger Woods is divorcing his wife’. She has a name too – Elin Nordegren – and is a person in her own right, not just a golfing accessory.
