Tell It All
You’ve probably heard it so much, you think you know all the inside deets about the historical marriage Tiger Woods had with his ex-wife Elin Nordegreen. From their whirlwind romance to the series of cheating allegations that shadowed (and later led to the end) their marriage. However, the media eye has always been on Tiger Woods. We’ve never gotten to hear Elin’s side of the story, till today.
For the first time, Elin speaks up about the messy scandals that followed her marriage, the messy divorce, and dealing with the blowback from her situation. She also revealed something she has been working under wraps. You’ll want to stick around for this one.
A Glimpse of Their Story
Elin’s earlier life had been simple, so she aimed for a new version of her life by moving to a new country. Woods was already a famous golf player. However, little did they know that their lives would be different once they met.
Nightmares of Elin
Tiger Woods had met Elin through friends and was suddenly attracted to her. He wanted to court her but Elin did not know how to react to it. They came from two different worlds after all. She ended up giving Tiger a chance. However, who’d know that their relationship would entail tragic and nightmare stories, especially for Elin.
Firstly, Meet Elin Nordegren
During Elin’s relationship with Tiger, she was known as a silent one. Not just your ordinary silent one as she managed to stay quiet during the hot times of the issues around Tiger, despite his fame as a renowned golf player worldwide. Elin is a Swedish who was born and raised in Stockholm, Sweden. She was the first child and had a simple and ordinary daily life. Despite her parents' divorce, she never stopped dreaming of changing her life for the better.
The Starting Point
Knowing that Elin lived an ordinary life before meeting Tiger, you probably wonder how they crossed paths. Elin is undeniably gorgeous, and it caught the attention of a photographer named Bingo Rimer. One day he approached her for modeling, then she agreed as she wanted to change her life. Her photos were featured, and several agencies started contacting her. Elin felt the success and the hint of her future. But instead of making modeling her career, realizations hit her, and she had to make a tough decision…
Elin’s Dream Goals
Elin eventually quit modeling as she aimed for a different profession. She wanted to be a child psychologist, which required taking school sessions. Upon quitting modeling, maintaining a course in a university requires money to pay for tuition and other essentials. Because of that, Elin worked multiple jobs to sustain her study. Suddenly, something happened to her that would lead her closer to Tiger.
One Step Closer to the USA
Elin just started her routine on a typical day working at a local store in Stockholm. Later, someone offered her a job as a nanny that seemed to be paying well. Because of the urge to change her life closer to her dream, Elin decided to accept the offer. She found out that the person she would be working with was the family of Jesper Parnevik, a famous American golf player. After accepting the job, she moved to the United States of America.
Bridge Towards Tiger
This was when it all started. Parnevik walked in the same circles as Tiger. Eventually, Tiger met Elin as Parnevik introduced the two to each other. Because Erin worked under Parnevik and lived an ordinary life, she did not immediately react to Tiger’s motives. But one day, Elin gave him a chance to court her, and so their whirlwind romance began.
Life’s Like Fairytale
Erin knew how she lived and how it was different from Tiger’s lifestyle. She felt lucky to meet this man that she would, later on, fell in love with. After dating each other, Tiger proposed to Elin and they got married. Their wedding passed all standards because it was a beautiful one. To achieve their dream wedding, Tiger spent USD 20,000,000, which made Elin felt living in a fairytale.
Life of a Married Couple
After several years of marriage, they had their 2 children, Charlie and Sam Woods, who also had excellent golfing skills like their dad. It was all nice, and a dream family not until Tiger changed and things started to go the other way around.
The Climax of Their Relationship
Despite having their 2 kids, it was a pain that Elin experienced the horror in her life last 2009. The pain doubled when she did not know about his affair of Tiger with another woman until she saw it in an article and not from Tiger himself. She loved Tiger and decided to turn a blind eye to the news article and focus on their everyday life. But that was not the end of it for Elin…
Tiger decided to take matters in his hands to prevent these issues from coming up in the papers. One of his mistresses stopped giving statements after receiving a bribe from Tiger. At first, it was a good sign but not until it triggered more issues.
Tough Lover And Mom
Tiger’s numerous mistresses suddenly wanted to give their own statements regarding the issues he was facing to also get some bribe from Tiger. All these issues not only impacted Tiger but brought double the pain to Elin. But then again, she decided to support her husband while having questions in her mind. More women appeared to be involved with Tiger, most of whom are celebrities such as Cori Rist, Holly Sampson, Jamie Jungers, Kalika Moquin, Mindy Lawton, and more. And again, since Elin wanted a normal and happy family, she did not believe all the issues and wanted to continue living with her family peacefully. That might be better for her, but another twist happened…
Gained a Proof
Elin was a tough lover and believer of Tiger. Despite all of the issues circling around them, she maintained to be composed and had faith in her husband. One day, she found something on Tiger that changed everything…
Aftermath of Cheating
On his phone, she saw all the painful and unfaithful messages from his mistresses that she previously did not believe. Elin then decided that she had enough and used the conversations to prove his affairs. Elin felt a combined knockout of pain and anger towards Tiger. She was so enraged, she attacked her husband using a golf club. Fortunately for Tiger, he was able to leave the house and drive away.
When It Rains
But that wasn’t the end of Elin and Tiger’s nightmare. While driving away from their house, Tiger fell asleep and had a car crash. Eventually, Elin did not leave him in the hospital. But Tiger did not know what he was about to face after the accident…
When Tiger got better, they decided to get a divorce but still remain both of them taking care of their two children. It is because, for all his many faults as a husband, Elin considered Tiger a good dad. After their divorce, Elin got USD 100,000,000 as a settlement aside from the USD 20,000 for child support. Despite them parting ways, Elin still lets Tiger see his children.
Wrath of Elin
Elin chose not to stay in the same house where she used to live with Tiger and their kids. Instead, she decided to completely cut out everything that reminded her of her husband and the pain he caused. Elin sold the house and decided to buy a condo unit for her to live with their two children. As she now starts to make her moves, you’ll now know about her side of the story.
Another Love Story
Elin wanted to remain lowkey to the media. But suddenly, she was linked to another man, Chris Cline, who was a coal executive. It was spread all over the media, and people started to expect more. But that wasn’t the case for Elin. Truly, Elin had lowkey dated Chris for two years until she decided to part ways to focus on herself. For that reason, the following days would be difficult…
Elin wanting a simple and peaceful life turned into a hot mess after she was caught driving too fast at 9 mph over the speed limit back in 2012, and it was at North Palm Beach. It triggered the media, and people urged her to get driving lessons. Because of this issue, she lost her driving license and needed to get another one. She kept trying to leave the eye of the media but things kept happening that kept bringing her back in the eyes of the people.
Tiger is Back
Tiger is BackFive years after Elin and Tiger’s divorce, Tiger decided to reveal to the public the truth behind the past issue. It turned out that Tiger cheated on Elin with 100 affairs. He also told them what she had done with the golf club. This raised several eyebrows. By 2015, Tiger revealed to Time Magazine that he and Elin had worked through their differences and she was now his best friend. And remember that Elin also said that Tiger was a good father to their children. It would be a big question for the public if it was true.
After Tiger’s interview, Time magazine published it and released all the statements from the golf player. At that time, Tiger was dating Lindsey Vonn, an Olympic player. During the interview, Elin and Chris were also still dating, and Tiger revealed that the four of them would sometimes go on double dates together. Then tragedy struck again.
A Tragic Story
Chris Cline, Elin’s past lover, was seen talking again with Elin before his 61st birthday. Unfortunately, he tragically passed away on the day of his birthday in a helicopter crash. People started to look again at Elin as she grieved privately with her few friends, including Tiger. She thought this would be the end of it, but fate had other plans.
Relationship Issues Again
At the hot spot Art Basel in Miami, Elin met Jordan Cameron, an NFL Star. Suddenly, their connection seemed to be deepening, and they tried to get out in the public eye. Unlike Tiger and Chris, Cameron was different. In a way, he was not used to being too exposed in public and hearing things from people. Because of that, he and Elin decided to make their own rules…
Returning Back to Spotlight
Elin and Cameron had an amazing relationship for a year. After that, Cameron decided to open their relationship to the public as he also had a good relationship with Elin and Tiger’s kids. He scheduled an interview together with Elin, and they knew they will be back in the spotlight doing this. In 2017, Cameron decided to retire from his career and decided to focus on their family. Most people were shocked, but the couple was about to begin a new chapter in their lives.
Welcoming to The World
In October 2019, Elin and Cameron introduced their baby Arthur Nordegren Cameron in the public eye. And that’s not the only good thing that happened to the couple. In the same year before the baby was born, Elin and Cameron had a private wedding. Elin thought this would be her happy ending after all the horror she had experienced in the past years of her relationships.
Living Her Dream
Even before things got crazy, Elin never forgot about her dream. Despite all those ups and downs that made her life both happy and stressful, she still managed to move forward. Even though she has been on the negative side of the public twice, she could never stop being looked at by the people. But then again, she’s happy now, and the people who know her celebrated with her joy.
No More Golf
During her past relationship with Tiger, her life seemed to be controlled by Tiger’s game and schedule. But now, she could give more time to spend her life the way she wanted. Elin started to learn baking and even read stories and other educational materials to her kids. But her life is not just about her family but also about her education. Elin received an amazing award from her university that shocked the public…
Gratefulness of Elin
Even though Elin is already a mom of three kids, she still managed to achieve her 2nd dream, which is to finish her education. Elin proudly presented herself in their commencement exercise and proceeded to tell her message. Staying in public for so long made people wonder if she would formally give her statements about her and Tiger’s past issues. She didn’t; instead, she delivered a much more inspiring and meaningful message…
Elin proudly told her story on the podium about being a mom and a college student at the same time. It was tough for her, but she managed to graduate and even received an award. What she told everyone was undoubtedly inspirational. During those hard times, Elin relied on her studies instead of stressing out. To reach her goal, she aimed to be a good mom and student. And that’s what she did.
