Elin Nordegren broke her silence to tell her side of the story in an exclusive interview with People Magazine. Elin had no clue that her beloved husband, Tiger Woods, was having the serial affairs and she was under the impression their marriage was solid.
Elin tells People that she “has been through hell”, she is a young mother and wife who thought her world was secure and that she had a faithful husband. She says she has gone through the stages of “disbelief and shock” then she moved onto “anger”. Finally she is “grieving the break-up of her family”.
In a very odd turn of events, it was Elin’s team that contacted People about doing this interview. Any media outlet would have jumped at this interview, but Elin picked People Magazine, which speaks to Elin’s high regards of this publication.
One of Elin’s reasons for doing an interview was to put an end to the rumors that she attacked Tiger with a golf club the night Tiger crashed his car. She said Tiger had been gone a while when she decided to go look for him and found him across the street from their home in the car he had crashed. She could not get Tiger out of the car and that is when she smashed windows to try and gain access to him, according to Fox News.
This very well may be the truth and Elin was just smashing the windows of Tiger’s vehicle to try and get a door to open so she could get him out. But, if she was swinging a golf club at the World’s # 1 golfer, this could not be shared with the public because she could be arrested on domestic violence charges.
Stories came out of that evening saying that Tiger was so badly battered with the golf club that he needed plastic surgery on his face and he needed his broken tooth fixed, according to the Hollywood Gossip website.
Tiger Woods has always maintained that Elin did not hit him and he stressed over and over again that there was never any domestic abuse at anytime during his marriage to Elin.
If Elin had indeed hit Tiger with a golf club, Tiger would not want this to go public for few reasons. One being the possibility of losing custody of the kids while the violence was investigated. Elin is the mother of his kids and he had already put the family through enough turmoil, so of course he would protect Elin. Last, but not least, Tiger broke his wife’s heart and humiliated her with his actions, so he more than likely would do anything to keep Elin from more embarrassment and heartbreak.
Elin said “Tiger left the house and after a while she went to look for him when he did not return”. This is something that sounds a little lame to begin with because why would Elin go and look for Tiger in the first place and then just at that moment, happen upon the crash? It was the neighbors that called the accident into the 911 operator, not Elin.
The bottom line is that the only ones who know the truth about what went on that night are Tiger and Elin. The story goes that Elin never went after Tiger physically and no one is deviating from that story. This is all we may ever know about that night.
