Lovestage: Tiger Woods may be divorcing wife Elin Nordegren since his multiple infidelities came to light.
Pro golfer Tiger Woods became engaged to former Swedish model Elin Nordegren in November 2003. They had been introduced to each other during The Open Championship in 2001 by Swedish golfer Jesper Parnevik, who had employed her as an au pair. They married on October 5, 2004, and settled down in Windermere, a suburb of Orlando, Florida. June 18, 2007, Elin gave birth to the couple's first child, daughter Sam Alexis Woods. On February 8, 2009, Elin gave birth to son Charlie Axel.
On November 25, 2009, The National Enquirer published a story claiming that Woods had an extramarital affair with nightclub manager Rachel Uchitel, a claim she denied. Interest in the story grew when San Diego cocktail waitress Jaimee Grubbs publicly claimed that she'd had a two and a half year affair with Woods. Soon after this newest revelation, Woods released an apology, expressing regret for "transgressions" and saying, "I have let my family down."
After over a dozen women claimed in various media outlets that they'd had affairs with Woods, media pressure increased. On December 11, 2009, he released another statement, admitting to "infidelity" and offering another apology. It has since been conjectued that Woods is, perhaps, a sex addict. The world waits to see if Elin will leave him.
