This weekend was a big weekend for Tiger Woods. Of course I think any day will be a big day for Tiger until he can manage to somehow live down the shame of disgracing his entire family. But this weekend began with Tiger’s announcement that he’s taking a leave from golf. This is supposedly so that he can spend time ‘healing his family’ but there are rumors that that’s not all that’s behind the leave. The mill has it that Elin, Tiger’s no longer adoring or naive wife, has forced Tiger to take this leave. And that he will be ‘allowed’ to return to the sport once the entire family is old enough to travel with him on tournaments. A bit of overkill? Maybe. But consider that he brought God knows what into their home by sleeping with umpteen women, you can kind of see her point. But that was just the beginning.
The next announcement would be from a company, Accenture, that Tiger was set to have some endorsement deals with. Or had some deals with, I supposed. The company has now dropped Tiger from any dealings with them. And does it have anything to do with Tiger’s transgressions. You bet your bottom dollar it does. From Gossip Center,
“The fallout continues as Tiger Woods deals with the ramifications of his adulterous actions. And the latest update is that Accenture consulting firm has dropped him from their endorsement deal.
The global company announced yesterday that they were parting ways with Woods, saying he’s “no longer the right representative due to the circumstances of the last two weeks.”
On the bright side, Woods hasn’t lost his Nike gig. A rep for the company told press, “Tiger has been part of Nike for more than a decade. He is the best golfer in the world and one of the greatest athletes of his era. We look forward to his return to golf. He and his family have Nike’s full support.”
In related news, Tiger’s wife Elin Nordegren was spotted on her way to a holiday party yesterday (December 13) with her mother and two children. And as she stopped to fuel up her car, it was obvious that she wasn’t wearing her wedding right.”
Obviously this is a typo and the gossip column meant to run it as “wedding ring” in the last sentence. And I think if Elin isn’t wearing her wedding ring, it’s understandable. But I would also take it as a sign that she’s simply not willing to ride it out and that she’s at least one foot out the door with this marriage nonsense. But, National Enquirer says differently. They’re running a story that states that Elin is most likely going to stay with her adulterous husband. The reasons vary from ‘because of the children’ to ‘well, she’s renegotiated the prenup,’ but in either case, the Enquirer claims that Elin’s staying. For now. From the National Enquirer,
“Tiger Woods’ wife to allegedly $tand by her man. For now.
People mag, that bastion of celeb fan mags, ever receptive to the needs of PR payola, says that despite Elin Nordegren Woods allegedly going postal after first learning of the ENQUIRER’s investigative worldwide exclusive about the potent putter and his laymate Rachel Uchitel, Elin will stay married to Woods — “for the sake of the children”.
Because, according to peeps – uh – People, Elin is a “child of divorce” herself.
“That’s not something she’s likely going to want to do to (her children) Sam and Charlie,” Elin’s “pal” soft-pedaled People. “She really believes in the importance of parents staying together.”
In reality, it’s Team Tiger’s spin doctoring and lawyers working overtime with a big payday in the offing to the missus as they renegotiate the terms of the prenup which may be voided due to unrelenting hordes of self-confessed Tiger vixen undulating out of the nether zones.
BUT top New York divorce attorney Raoul Felder told The ENQUIRER EXCLUSIVELY that Elin WILL reap millions above and beyond her prenup agreement:
“For the first time Tiger’s wife is in a powerful position. When she signed a prenup she had no power at all. Now she can say if you don’t change the agreement, I’m OUT the door.”
I’m tempted to believe this story from Enquirer, that seems to originally have come from People. The latter is a pretty reputable source all round and it was the Enquirer that was the first to break the news about Tiger and his many ladies. So who knows at this point. But it does look like Elin’s not ready to sign any divorce papers today. And as for Tiger? Oh what a twisted web we weave…
