Report: Elin Nordegren wants full custody of Tiger Woods’ kids
Tiger Woods ex-wife, Elin Nordegren, has reportedly told the No. 1 golfer in the world that she wants full custody of their two young children.
“Elin is livid!” a family insider told the National Enquirer. “She’s told Tiger that she wants full custody of the kids, and she’s taking steps to keep them away from Lindsey.”
Nordegren has been angry since World Cup and Olympic skier Lindsey Vonn, Woods’ girlfriend, was photographed taking Woods’ daughter Sam, 6, and son Charlie, 4, to school, according to sources.
Vonn has also been seen fishing and jet skiing with Woods and the kids.
“Elin thinks Lindsey and Tiger are using the kids for publicity,” the source said. “And when she heard what Lindsey said about being Tiger’s ‘wife,’ Elin said, ‘That’s the last straw!’”
Here’s what Vonn told The New York Times about being a “wife.”
“I don’t give him a lot of feedback about his golf game,” Vonn said. “We talk golf after his golf rounds, but mostly I listen. We really are normal in that way. Lots of people go home and talk to their wife or husband about their job. That’s what we do.”
According to The Enquirer’s source, Nordegren plans to tackle Woods in court.
“Their divorce agreement specifies that Tiger is not to have the kids around his girlfriends,” the source said. “Elin feels he’s violated that agreement, and given her an opening to sue for full custody.”
Woods and Nordegren ended their six-year marriage following the golfer’s serial cheating with party girls and porn stars. Woods eventually paid Nordegren a reported $110 million divorce settlement.
“Elin has never taken Tiger’s romance with Lindsey seriously, figuring he’d get bored with her and it wouldn’t last a year,” said the source. “Now, however, she’s become convinced that Lindsey is trying to replace her as the children’s mother, and she’s certainly not going to let that happen.”
As for Vonn’s original interview with The Times, Woods reportedly told her to keep quiet.
“He flew into a rage and told Lindsey, ‘You should learn when to keep your mouth shut! You’re going to cost me my kids!’
