Tiger Woods' wife did not suspect anything until the news came out.
If you believe in monogamous relationships, then being loyal to your partner is a must. Unfortunately, many fracture their relationship by stumbling over this step. Tiger Woods is one such person. The golf player once married to Elin Nordegren, betrayed her and broke off their 5-year marriage.
Woods married Nordegren in 2004 and the couple went on to have two children. However, their marriage that looked perfect to the world went down the drain after Woods' affairs with 120 different women came out. While it was already difficult for Nordegren to believe that her husband was seeing other women behind her back, her world was shattered when she realized he even slept with their neighbor.
According to Daily Mail, Woods had a one-night stand with the 21-year-old daughter of his neighbor in Florida. The event occurred when his wife was just yards away taking care of their second newborn. The mother of two was furious when she learned about it. It was her final straw and she knew she did not want to live with a man, who disrespected her through his actions.
Shortly after, she called Woods and lashed out at him while he was having dinner with his friends post his U.S. Masters comeback.
"This is the worst betrayal ever. I can’t believe you had sex with that girl in our own neighborhood. That’s it — I’m divorcing you." said the woman in rage, according to the New York Post. Witnesses stated, "She was screaming so loudly that everyone at the table could hear what she was saying," according to the Daily Mail. Meanwhile, Woods denied the allegations. But, Nordegren was not ready to trust him again.
"Elin has cut Tiger out of her life. She doesn’t believe anything he says now. The marriage is over," said sources, according to the Daily Mail. Prior to the incident, Woods admitted to his infidelities.
He said, “I have let my family down and I regret those transgressions with all of my heart. I have not been true to my values and the behavior my family deserves. I am not without faults and I am far short of perfect," according to InTouch Weekly.
He continued, "Elin has always done more to support our family and shown more grace than anyone could possibly expect. I will strive to be a better person and the husband and father that my family deserves. For all of those who have supported me over the years, I offer my profound apology."
But his apology did not help Nordegren get over the betrayal. She filed for divorce and walked away with a $110 million payout. “I’m so embarrassed that I never suspected — not a one. I’ve been through hell. It’s hard to think you have this life, and then all of a sudden — was it a lie? You’re struggling because it wasn’t real. But I survived. It was hard, but it didn’t kill me," said the heartbroken woman, according to InTouch Magazine.
Nordegren recalled how much she loved him all throughout their marriage. “I loved him, we had so much fun, and I felt safe with him. Our wedding day was one of the happiest days of my life," said the woman.
Woods addressed the divorce and stated, "You don’t ever go into a marriage looking to get divorced. That’s why it is sad. My actions certainly led us to this decision. I’ve certainly made a lot of errors in my life and that’s something I’m going to have to live with," according to Access Online.
He further remarked, "I ran straight through the boundaries that a married couple should live by — I thought I could get away with whatever I wanted to. I felt that I had worked hard my entire life and deserved to enjoy all the temptations around me. I felt I was entitled," according to In Touch Magazine.
