Finally out of the woods, Elin Nordegren speaks out for the first time about what transpired to lead her to end her almost six-year marriage to golf great Tiger Woods.
In her interview with People Magazine, Nordegren wanted people to know of three things: that she is not violent and never hit Woods; that she had no idea this (pertaining to Woods’ dalliances with more than a handful of women) was going on; and that it was a real marriage for her.
Nordegren and Woods were married Oct. 5, 2004, in Barbados and they have two children, a 3-year-old daughter, Sam, and an 18-month-old son, Charlie.
On Thanksgiving night, Woods drove his SUV over a fire hydrant and into a tree, which set off the shocking revelations that he had been cheating on his wife through multiple affairs. They were officially divorced Monday.
Nordegren said she would eventually forgive Woods, but that she is still working on it because forgiveness takes time.
