|Elin Nordegren and Tiger Woods were married for 6 years (from 2004 to 2010). Tiger Woods had asked for a year to be introduced to Elin Nordegren, who was seeing someone else at the time. "She had no interest in Tiger and he was OK with that," Mia Parnevik said. "There was a big line of single golfers wanting to meet her. They were gaga over her." She had hopes at the time of becoming a child psychiatrist. In November 2003, Woods and Nordegren attended the Presidents Cup tournament in South Africa and became officially engaged when Woods proposed at the luxury Shamwari Game Reserve.|
They were married in October 2004, by the 19th hole of the Sandy Lane resort in Barbados. The 150 guests included Michael Jordan and Charles Barkley. Woods rented the entire complex for a week, including three golf courses and 110 rooms, costing almost $2 million.
Shortly after Nordegren's relationship with Woods became public, nude photographs purporting to be of Nordegren began circulating on the Internet, which were established to be fakes. Despite the debunking, in 2006, Irish magazine The Dubliner published the nude photographs and stated they were of Nordegren. On November 16, 2006, Nordegren filed a libel suit against The Dubliner. Nordegren won the lawsuit, and as part of the settlement accepted by a Dublin court, The Dubliner was required to publish a lengthy apology in a variety of venues. Were the magazine to have failed to meet the conditions, the award would have been increased to $366,500 plus all of Nordegren's legal expenses.
On June 18, 2007, Woods announced the birth of the couple's daughter, Sam Alexis Woods, a day after finishing second in the U.S. Open. On September 2, 2008, Woods announced they were expecting another child in late winter. Five months later it was announced that Nordegren had given birth to a boy, Charlie Axel, on February 8, 2009.
In December 2009, her marriage to Woods was the subject of extensive media coverage after Woods admitted to infidelity, which had been revealed following his single-vehicle accident near the family's Florida home. Woods subsequently announced he would take an "indefinite break" from golf to work on his marriage. These efforts were unsuccessful, however, as Nordegren and Woods finalized their divorce in the Bay County Circuit Court in Panama City, Florida, on August 23, 2010. Nordegren's legal team included her sister, Josefin (who is licensed to practice law in England and Sweden) and several of Josefin's U.S. colleagues at international law firm McGuireWoods.
Using the $100 million she received from her divorce with Tiger Woods, she purchased a $12 million mansion in Florida. After contacting an architect about bringing the home, built in the 1920s, up to current hurricane safety codes, it was in his opinion that it would make better sense to start over, so she had the entire structure demolished. Before demolishing the home in December 2011, she allowed Habitat for Humanity to come into the home for four weeks and salvage anything they found of value. During their salvage efforts, workers found extensive termite and insect damage in six bedrooms, eight bathrooms, and other areas in the two-story home. Many valuable contents of the estate went on the auction block at a Habitat for Humanity warehouse. Among the items donated to Habitat were a 12-foot fountain with water spouting out of three lion’s mouths, five subzero refrigerators, 14 vanities, temperature-controlled wine coolers, as well as other furniture.
