Many, many sources, even close friends and family are reporting that the Tiger Woods-Elin Nordegren saga a.k.a. divorce is final, the only thing left is the filing in Orlando County Court.

"Everything's signed. Elin is ready to file for divorce at Orange County Court," says an inside source. "She expects to do so sometime in the next seven days."

Here’s the kicker though, the settlement Elin is set to receive, which has the world buzzin’, is reportedly valued in the neighborhood of $750 million.

Yes, three-quarters of a billion dollars, believed to be the biggest payout of a celebrity divorce ever. There are conditions, however, according to reports:

  1. Tiger may not bring any other females around their children.
  2. Elin can never publicly speak about his various mistresses.
  3. Elin gets full custody of the kids but they share legal custody.

Now if that’s all that I have to do for three-quarters of a billion, I say ‘let me sign them papers’. This will mean that Tiger will share decisions about the kids, and Elin will not be able to permanently relocate them to Sweden as many said that she wanted to do.

Now trust me this amount really isn’t putting a huge dent in Tiger’s pocket, but the $750 million is to keep Elin’s mouth closed about this whole ordeal forever! Reps for Tiger say these conditions are really to help avoid Tiger’s biggest fear, which is Elin is telling her story after Tiger has rebuilt his reputation. I know a lot of divorced women that would take $1 million to keep them from saying their ex’s name for eternity and beyond.

So her keeping quiet includes…complete confidentiality, no interviews, no tell-all books, and no TV appearances about this for the rest of her life, even if Tiger dies first, or she'll lose the money.

So basically, Rachel Uchitel, Jaimee Grubbs, Joslyn James, Devon James and the other dozen or so hoes we know of, cost Tiger roughly $37.5 million each.

One report suggests that Elin Woods ended up with double the sum she sought after her lawyers determined Tiger is worth much more than $1 billion.

Honestly, I’m happy that this is about 80% done, now Tiger can get back on his golf game and Elin can move on with her life.
