Tiger Woods-Elin Nordegren: Marriage Counseling, New Prenup in the Future?

Old SkoolContributor IDecember 2, 2009

While the entire world hunts for information on Tiger Woods' “transgressions,” voice mails, text messages, and mistresses, other media outlets are already alleging that wife Elin Nordegren has begun to assert herself with ultimatums. 

According to the Chicago Sun-Times, Nordegren is demanding that the billionaire golfer rip up the existing prenuptial agreement the couple has for a new one and that he deposit a seven-figure sum of cash for her in a private bank account.

Nordegren would need to stay with Tiger for 10 years to collect a $20 million payoff, should the two ever split, according to the Sun-Times. That agreement has been shortened and the payoff increased “substantially,” the paper alleges. The couple has been married for five years and has two children.

Additionally, the paper reports that intense marriage counseling has already begun for the couple in their Windermere, Fla., mansion, with a private counselor coming in and conducting several sessions per day.

The couple’s life has been turned upside down in the last week since the National Enquirer alleged an affair between the legendary pro golfer and Rachel Uchitel. That allegation triggered a chain of events that has involved a car accident, possibly a fight between the couple with Nordegren brandishing a golf club, Woods suffering facial lacerations, and two additional allegations of extramarital affairs involving reality TV star Jaimee Grubbs and Las Vegas hostess Kalika Moquin.
