Elin Nordegren, the former wife of golf pro Tiger Woods has won the largest celebrity divorce settlement, ever. The 30-year-old will get $750 million, in addition to the stipulation that Woods never bring a girlfriend near their two children again – unless the two legally marry.

The figure is mind-boggling. But Woods, the number one golfer in the world, has agreed to pay this sum to Elin Nordegren, the sum of $750 million for her silence and also that this settlement bars him from bringing any female nearer to his kids daughter Sam and son Charlie, unless she is his married wife.

Woods had extramarital affairs with Rachel Uchitel, reality star Jaimee Grubbs, porn queen Joslyn James and up to 17 others. His list of conquests includes everyone from pancake waitresses to nightclub hostesses.

Part of the agreement is that Nordegren must remain silent about Woods’ past flings with various ladies.

Nordegren ended up with double the sum she originally sought, after her lawyers proved Woods was worth much more than the $1 billion than what was previously estimated. (more…)
