Elin Woods offered $80 million to keep playing trophy wife

December 3rd, 2009 // 95 Comments

Around the same time Tiger’s people began negotiations with Rachel Uchitel last night, Elin Woods was reportedly offered an immediate $5 million payment plus an additional $55 million added to her revised pre-nup if she stays married to Tiger for five more years, according to The Daily Beast:

The lawyer familiar with the couple’s negotiations told The Daily Beast that Tiger also has agreed to shorten the original prenup to seven years from the date of marriage, meaning it will vest in another two. And the revised agreement provides for a staggered schedule of payments spread out over five years that could be worth upward of $75 million. So for Elin to collect $80 million, she’ll need to stay with Tiger another seven years, be a dutiful wife in showing up with him at social events and in public as if they were still the perfect couple, and sign a nondisclosure form that will prevent her from ever telling her story. Even if she lasts only two more years, she’ll still walk away with nearly twice what she was entitled to under the original prenup.
Tiger’s advisers, who have successfully gotten the couple into counseling sessions, believe that keeping the marriage intact will help Tiger keep his corporate sponsors and bolster his dented image. Elin is herself considered a good asset. She’s never been a publicity hound or used her marriage to make money through self-help books, lecture series, or QVC makeup and jewelry lines. Rather, she’s just maintained a low profile and dedicated herself to being a spouse and mother. As opposed to some other celebrities, like Tom Cruise or Angelina Jolie, Elin has never pushed her kids into the public eye. So, now, if she is persuaded to stay, she knows little will be the same. Her quiet life is finished. A Los Angeles-based paparazzo told me that a photo of Elin and the children would fetch $250,000. Some agencies are offering $100,000 just for tips that pay off with photos.

It speaks volume about how much money Tiger is raking in that he’s willing to peel off $80 million just to stay married to a woman he’ll never see naked again and whose lawyers are probably demanding a billion dollar payout each time he cheats on her. Fortunately, he’s got a good golf grip for all that masturbating coming up. High five! — No, wait, don’t!

    Dear Tiger and Elin,

    If you’re in love, stay married. Fix this thing, hump like bunnies, make lots of money and babies.

    If you’re not in love, or if you are conflicted between keeping a nice home life while also fucking a different woman every night: get divorced. Give Elin $200 or $300M, lie to everyone and say “I’m not an asshole,” and get on with your life.

    In the meantime, we’ll look at old pictures of your wife, new pictures of the beasts you were banging, and commenting “is that REALLY the level of trim you get even if you’re Tiger Woods? Wow… that’s sad…”

    Just a straight girl

    You are quite right, she is a beautiful. Gave up the whole modeling career to raised thier kids, kept a low profile and was probably a great wife.

    Eldrick you are fvcked. You lose, no matter what. I really hope she leaves him and takes the kids. He will never play the same caliber of golf again.

  6. The Great One

    Elin, just get the hell out of there. $80 mill is plenty and if you bail now you preserve your dignity and look better than you’re ‘husband’ and way better than those freakin tramps he’s nailing.

  7. Nike

    80 million JUST DO IT!

  8. jj

    you freaks should get a life.

  9. continum

    it’s amazing how much shit your penis can get you into!

    I’d just ask her if she wanted to work it out, if not.. transfer a huge number into her bank and apologize profusely for putting her through the shame. After all, they have kids together and they will have to see each other for the rest of their lives like it or not.

    The bonus is, if they go their own ways there is going to be a very rich milf on the market!

  10. stickykeys

    wtf?! He’s offering her millions to pretend to be his happy wife, so he can continue to receive millions in endorsements? And she’s negotiating how much money to make this worth her while? What a couple of money grubbing assholes. Get a divorce if you can’t forgive and forget, and keep some personal dignity. I pity their children.

  11. Nameless

    Tiger is an idiot to have gotten married in the first place…just to keep playing the field a couple years later. Now he may have to fork over $80 mil.


    Even Charlie Sheen and David Duchovny never spent that much on high paid call girls.

  12. Anon

    Shouldn’t she stay with him because she loves him and wants to work this out and not for money?
    Ah women. All they want is to be married for all the right reasons.

    Who said romance is dead?

  13. Fuck You Evangelists

    So remind me again why gays can’t marry?

    Something about them “tarnishing the institution of marriage”?

    Riiiiight. Because paying to play is so much more “pristine”.

  14. cc

    So he is essentially paying her to be his wife. That’s the best he can do? He may be the world’s best golfer but he is fucking loser!!!

  15. gotmilk?

    7, she hardly had a “career” in modeling.

    now we know what she’s really after…this is pathetic!

  16. Taz

    She should leave now with HALF

  17. gotmilk?

    “She’s never been a publicity hound or used her marriage to make money through self-help books, lecture series, or QVC makeup and jewelry lines. ”

    HAHAH yeah until now!

  18. divorcee

    sure makes me look forward to my divorce, we’re fighting over the dog, and the stinky couch!

    80 million…I can’t even imagine 40 000 let alone 80 million, what the hell, I can’t even dream 80 million.

    How does one get to be so lucky at such a young age? what shame? Rich people don’t feel shame at all, that’s why they are rich.

    Who would dare make her feel ashamed? The fat lady with the sweatpants who has 20 bucks in her wallet? Elin got rid of her husband for 80 million and no one got killed.Call me a whore and sign that check please!!!

  19. who dat

    Just as I stated yesterday. Some 15 yr old dickweed (from this site) kept questioning what was saying

  20. TSM

    Y’all remember…no matter how beautiful a woman is, there is usually a man somewhere sick and tired of her shit!

  21. I think women that marry these high profile athlete’s know what they’re getting in to. That’s why they don’t leave. They’re in it for the money anyway.

  22. It's Me Fuckers

    If she was smart and wanted to kick his ass to the curb, I bet she could make MORE then $80mill on book deals, talk shows and interviews by spilling the beans on EVERYTHING.

    He’s a fucking douche for screwing around. Like anyone who screws around. I hope she works it out because of love, not money.

  23. Gays Can't Marry

    Gays can’t marry for the same reason oranges aren’t apples. The words have meanings. Marriage is an ancient word, with an ancient meaning, and it applies to men and women. Period, full stop.

    Call a man on man relationship whatever you damned well please, other than marriage. Lobby for legal equivalence to marriage.

    You know you’d win, and I know you’d win, and I’m fine with that. Fuck, EVERYBODY is fine with that except you… because this isn’t about rights, or equality. This is about you shoving my nose in your shit, and making me call it apple pie.

    Fuck you. We outnumber you 10 to 1, and we outnumber you and your friends by 3 or 4 to 1. We can, and will, continue to crush you like fucking insects at the polls until you learn to leave us alone. Every small victory you might get only raises the temperature. You won’t wear us down, not at this point – all you’ll do is eventually make us stop living productive lives long enough to bitch slap you back into place.

    Cornhole whomever the fuck you want. None of us care. Buy a house. Adopt kids. Get a nice RV. Have domestic disputes. Who the fuck cares?

    Just don’t tell us your married, and we won’t tell you that we give a shit.

  24. Reality

    Question I have. Was she fucking him regularly? If not then nothing wrong with getting it elsewhere. There is more to being a good wife than raising the kids.

    In that photo of them at the basketball game, Tiger looks totally broken.

  25. I love the gays

    gays have the best lifestyle.don’t fuck it up by wanting to get married.

  26. why?

    80 million I still can’t get over it…

    God tell me again how this is fair?

    She’s going to be single/millionaire and 29.

  27. sensitive guy

    OK, what’s more believable – that Tiger would pay $80 million to stay married…

    or that the attorneys negotiating this, who are paid GAZILLIONS by Tiger, Nike & Gatorade to keep this quiet and make it go away as fast as possible… are sharing the details of these negotiations with … The Daily Beast?

    THAT’S funny…

  28. Cause when she leave yo’ ass she gon’ leave with half.

    Oh Kanye.

  29. Valerie

    People! You’re forgetting the moral of the story: even rich-ass peeps are as miserable as all of us barely getting by.

  30. how true

    All the money in the world would have no value if women didn’t exist.


  31. #31

    I’d rather be rich and miserable than poor and miserable

  32. I’d work a few days overtime to get with this Elin.

    Really, this is getting too much attention though.

    @ 15 – Haha. I think Elizabeth Taylor and J-Lo did more damage to marriage than gays could ever hope to. “Annul this, annul that, it never happened, I can’t be held accountable”.

    @ 20 – Cuz she’s a blonde, yeah yeaah, yeah:

    @ 25 – I think there was a valid point in there somewhere. Why not start their own church denomination? “The Church Of The Verses That Are Convenient For Us”. Asking for gay marriage in a Baptist church is kind of like asking for drinking games at an Alcoholics Anonymous meeting.

  33. Dick Face

    Holly fuck, how much money does this player got???

  34. mensa

    she’s two years older than I am and looks like she’s pushing 40. WTF crow’s feet @ 29?

  35. Toaster

    Chuck Finley, look him up! He can help you.
    Your sponsors ought to drop you for being such a pussy about the whole thing. Nike = pussywhipped by your trophy wife?
    Gilette = needing to be blown by vegas talent for validation?
    Brands should do the smart thing and pull the plug on this scared little boy of a man.

  36. Bonerman

    This is not expensive for Tiger, LOL. He should dump her, enjoy life, and get ready for a shitload of rival endorsement deals should any of his current sponsors drop him. Bill Clinton reminded us that this type of behavior is to be expected for men in positions of power because many women want to jump on their cocks and you can’t blame them for that.

  37. DickerDo

    If she stays she’s just another whore – sure an 80 million dollar one – but she’s still getting paid for it so a whore. This is not what marriage is, paying your spouse to hang out. First Katie and Tom, then Kate and Jon and now Tiger and Elin. WTF is this world coming to?

  38. Guest

    Damn. Stickykeys, are you for real in calling Elin money-grubbing and pulling a Helen Lovejoy by acting like you care about her kids? You understand that you’re not actually privy to these ‘negotiations,’ right?

    This story is generating a lot of reactions from what I’m assuming are primarily female posters, who revel in cunty, “gold-digging Swede whore who doesn’t value marriage” idiocy. If you’re going to give a shit, how is it that Elin, who hasn’t released any statements or retained Gloria Allred or applied for a VH1 show, deserves your criticism?

  39. Tiger is a piece of filth

    I doubt even his mom loved him he is so ugly. And yet, he is so egotistical that he seeks the most beautiful blonde that he can find. And then that is not enough. Don’t forget assholes, it is essentially against the law to cheat. Not to mention it demonstrates a moral lacking. When he is away from his wife can’t he just jerk-off?
    He won’t be around too much longer as his body is already beginning to rot. At 33!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  40. Hilarious

    #25 – That is THE BEST way I have heard my feelings on the matter put. It’s poetry.

    “…this isn’t about rights, or equality. This is about you shoving my nose in your shit, and making me call it apple pie.”

    That’s *exactly* right. I’m not telling anybody what to do, or how to live. I can barely look after my own shit, I don’t have time to bother with what people do. After all, I don’t give a shit what anybody thinks about me. I’m not parading the streets for “acceptance”. I don’t care whether somebody “accepts” me or not. They can get fucked. Likewise: you. can’t. make. me. love. what. you. do. You can’t.

    I’d like to post that all over the place, please.

  41. spunk on who dat's face

    @ who dat

    Here you go cunt boy…this is what you wrote yesterday:

    They’ve been married since 2004. Tiger makes 100 mill per year (I’m rounding down for the sake of simplicity) So after 5 years of marriage if she divorces him on grounds of adultery she could potentially call it quits and take about 250 million plus lifetime pension… This is the best thing that could’ve happened to her!!!! (in fact, I bet she planned it!)

    JFC…not even in the same universe.

  42. Ranta Claus

    Never underestimate the earning power of a vagina. Not to say she couldn’t make 80 million on her own merits. With that kind of a paycheck, I’d say she failed to perform the obligations of her duties. If she was “Hired” to be the wife of this kid, she should also be subject to being fired from said position. There is no way in hell Tiger should have the energy to cheat on this lady. For that kind of money, she should have polished the Driver whenever it got dirty. Fu*k Her.

  43. Mizzy M

    The question is will she be another Hilary Clinton or not? I vote for her to leave him now while she is still able to find a monogamous man who will love her honestly as a human being.

  44. Italian Stallion

    This ugly mulatto has bulging eyes, big lips, a round face and a vacant stare most of the time.

    At least the guy’s in shape (unusual for a golfer), but other than that & his golf game & bank account, the guy’s a total fucking dud.

    I’d take this cheating motherfucker to the cleaners if I was her.

  45. stupid 26 yr old

    @36…talk to the 80 million dollar hand

  46. money

    the moral of the story?


  47. Jamie Lynn's Uterus

    Jon Gosselin couldn’t get any of Tiger’s Ho’s that’s for sure.

    #25 & #42

    Right, because marriage is what is defined as “causing the exorbitant divorce rate” and “getting paid $80 million to shut up and stay with your husband who fucks everything that moves just so he can sell some more Nike shit.” I see.

    It’s really sweet to define someone’s genuine love for another human as “shit” while another couple’s love is “apple pie.” What is your definition of marriage? Is it two willing people or does this include arranged marriages, which other cultures still perform regardless of whether or not the two involved want it. And fundie, extreme Muslims get married, yet treat their wives like property and beat, rape, and kill them.

    So what exactly IS marriage to you? Because the word is used all over the world and it means a lot of different things in a lot of places.

    Or, is it just that you’re a raging homophobe who accepts all the other differences everywhere else that claim to fail under the umbrella of “marriage,” but as soon as a two guys start kissing, fuck all that noise? Yeah… probably that. And no one ever talks about the lesbians unless the guy wouldn’t “hit that.”

    How about this: don’t claim you’re all for equality and equal rights when all of us can clearly see that that’s a pile of bullshit. You know… the whole apple pie-shit thing.

    She’s not a trophy wife; the required age difference is absent.
