Elin Nordegren must keep quiet, Tiger Woods must hide girlfriends in $750 million divorce settlement

While it's already been widely rumored that Elin Nordegren is pocketing $750 million from Tiger Woods in a divorce settlement, the details that are trickling out are what's really shocking. Like, say, the one that says Elin can never talk about their problems, or the one that says Tiger can never be with single women around their kids. How will they ever meet their new mommy?

The U.K.'s Sun dished that Woods has agree to keep future girlfriends (or whores) away from 3-year-old daughter Sam and 1-year-old son Charlie, meaning he has to marry them if he wants any new girl to meet his spawn. That might not be a problem, as the only girls Tiger bedded were porn stars, bartenders and other assorted rough riders. In exchange, Elin gets the biggest celebrity divorce payment ever.

"Elin is desperate to protect the children from the womanizing side of their father," a source told the paper. "Tiger's main fear is her telling her story after he's rebuilt his reputation, sending him back to the gutter."

While the $750 mil is twice what Elin was originally seeking, the chastity it buys comes at a cost.

"The price of the huge sum is her silence: no interviews, tell-all books, or TV appearances about this for the rest of her life -- even if Tiger dies first -- or she'll lose the lot," another source said. "Everything's signed. Elin is ready to file for divorce at Orlando County Court. She expects to in the next seven days." Too bad there's no such place as Orlando County, but that's splitting hairs.

The kids, meanwhile, will go to Nordegren, although Tiger will be able to see them. That means she won't be able to just move them back to Sweden permanently. The deal can be renegotiated in five years, by which time Tiger will be so sick of being able to bring only married women (and female staff Elin already knows) around the kids, he'll probably be willing to agree to anything.
