Divorce reportedly will cost Tiger $750 million


June 28, 2010  

Tiger Woods will reportedly pay Elin Woods $750 million, including the $80 million new mansion just being completed in Jupiter, Fla., in their impending divorce, sources say.

In addition, Elin is requiring that Tiger not expose their children to any future female companions “unless he is married to said person.”

Tiger and his legal team apparently spent a lot of time writing language preventing any Elin tell-all or media interviews by Elin, but the Swedish native is “so private. The last thing she would ever do is revisit this horrible period in her life,” a longtime Florida friend said of her.

Custody remains an issue, with the two differing over how much time the Woods children will spend outside the United States. Elin is pushing for much more than what Tiger wants.
Apparently not everybody in Monaco is happy about Prince Albert finally getting hitched at age 52.

“I wish he’d picked someone else,” a longtime Monte Carlo insider told the Chicago Sun-Times’ Bill Zwecker.

The source — who knows former South African Olympic swimmer Charlene Wittstock — told him, “We had seen this coming. … They have been together for so long and she’s been living in the palace for nearly four years.” The source, who lives in Monaco, called the 32-year-old blond “quite the operator. … She has made marrying Albert her total focus ever since she met him” in 2000.

Prince Albert of Monaco and former South African Olympic swimmer Charlene Wittstock are engaged, the royal palace announced Wednesday.

Wittstock, a former South Afrian Olympic swimmer, who will become Her Serene Highness Princess Charlene, apparently is “totally obsessed” with Princess Grace, Albert’s mother and the onetime Oscar-winning actress Grace Kelly, Zwecker reports.

His older sister, Princess Caroline, is also unhappy about the engagement. She was widely known to want the Monaco throne for her own sons. Given it seemed unlikely Albert would marry and provide an heir, Caroline even helped engineer a constitutional change in 2002, allowing her sons Andrea and Pierre Casiraghi to be in line to succeed if their uncle died without a legal heir.

Albert does have two children born out of wedlock — making them ineligible to succeed to the throne.

Lindsay Lohan will have to answer more questions about a 2007 car chase that landed her in jail, including inquiries about drug use at the time, a judge has ruled.

Lohan’s answers will be used in a civil lawsuit filed against the actress by a woman who claims she suffered emotional distress after the incident, which prompted a criminal case that still haunts the “Mean Girls” star.

Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Richard A. Stone ordered Lohan to sit for a two-hour deposition next month. The judge approved a request by Lohan’s attorney to allow the questioning to happen after July 6, when a criminal judge will decide whether Lohan violated her probation by missing a court hearing in May.

Tracie Rice, who was a passenger in a car being chased by Lohan in July 2007, sued the actress for assault, negligence and intentional infliction of emotional distress a month later. The case is scheduled to go to trial in late July.

Lohan was charged with seven misdemeanors stemming from her arrest after the chase and another incident a few months earlier.

Rice’s attorney, Paul Hoffman, argued Thursday that Lohan hadn’t answered key questions about her drug use and whether she was remorseful, both of which could help his case.

“This case is about somebody who claims to be sober and had cocaine and blew a DUI for alcohol,” Hoffman said. He said the questions would be crucial to a jury deciding whether Lohan should have to pay punitive damages if she is found liable.

Lohan’s attorney, Ed McPherson, said the questions seemed aimed more at embarrassing Lohan in the press and could harm her if used at the probation hearing. He said Lohan sat for a daylong deposition during which she was subjected to numerous lines of questioning, including whether she had seen a recent “60 Minutes” episode featuring Al Pacino.

“It’s clear they don’t need answers to these questions,” McPherson argued. He also said Lohan was busy focusing on the fulfilling the conditions of her criminal case and working.
