Tiger Woods' wife hires private eye to probe wealth

Monday January 4, 2010

Elin Nordegren, the wife of golfing legend Tiger Woods, has reportedly hired a private investigator to pinpoint the extent of her husband's wealth.

The action from the 30-year-old comes amidst speculation that she plans to divorce the father of her two children.

Tiger - the world's highest-earning sportsman - hit headlines in December after a string of ladies told of their alleged affairs with him.

Elin is believed to be entitled to half of the £377million that Tiger has earned since the couple married in 2004.

"Elin knows hiring a PI is a smart move. Her lawyers want to make sure she gets every penny she's entitled to," a source tells the Daily Mirror.

"She is devastated, but now she's decided to end their marriage she has the future of their children to think about."
