The Tiger Woods and Elin Nordegren divorce settlement is reportedly in its final stages, but new settlement figures are emerging.
TMZ is reporting that Nordegren will receive approximately $100 million from Woods in the final settlement, citing a source with first-hand knowledge of the proceedings.
TMZ also said that Nordegren will receive an unspecified amount of child custody.
It was initially reported that Elin Nordegren was to receive $750 million from Woods. Back in May, that amount was the asking price by Nordegren and her attorneys. But according to Forbes magazine Woods, who has been hit hard with financial loses in endorsements due to his sex scandal which hit headlines back in November, is worth approximately $600 million.
According to People magazine, earlier this week, Woods and his attorneys offered increasing settlement amounts to Nordegren, as long as she agreed to remain silent about the private mishaps between the two during their marriage.
Since returning to Golf, Woods has not nearly been himself on the course. He came up short at the Masters and the U.S. Open, missed the cut at Quail Hollow and was forced to withdraw from The Players Championship due to injury. This week, at his once sponsored AT&T National tournament, Woods continues to search for his golf game.
Woods admitted on Wednesday at a press conference that he is frustrated by all the divorce settlement Shenanigans. “Outside the ropes there are certainly still distractions,” Woods said. “It is what it is.”
