Elin divorce deal puts too high a price on her hurt
Though many may cheer at Tiger Woods being hurt in the pocket after his infidelities, Eilis O'Hanlon reckons the payout is just too big
'MY Own Story', screams the headline on People magazine. The ultimate irony, though, for Elin Nordegren is that, unlike most of the famous names who make the cover of America's celebrity weekly, she will always be best known not for her own accomplishments, whatever they are, but for what her ex-husband Tiger Woods did.
Which was, first, play golf rather well, and, second, bed half the slutty blondes in the United States, including one who starred in a film with the subtle title, Diary of a Horny Housewife.
For this, Elin has now walked away with a divorce payout totalling a reputed $100m (€78m). The details remain secret, so far, but that's the figure being reported by celebrity website TMZ, which has a good track record in getting this stuff right.
