Chicago: Golfer Tiger Woods` estranged wife
Elin is holding "round the clock" discussions with lawyers
regarding her divorce, which could cost Woods anywhere between
USD 500 million to USD 600 million.

Elin Nordegren Woods has been in "round-the-clock"
conversations with a battery of lawyers ? both in her native
Stockholm and in the United States, where she actually would
file for divorce, the Chicago SunTimes quoted a source close
to Elin as saying.

"Supposedly, the Woods divorce settlement would fall into
the USD 500 million to USD 600 million range.”

"Elin Woods supposedly is concerned about locking-in
specific times where she can live in Sweden with the couple`s
two children," the paper said.

According to the source, Elin is mostly concerned about
protecting her two kids` financial interests.

A book that Elin read about how the children of a wealthy
man from his first marriage did not get their share of
inheritance, while their father`s second wife ended up with
the lion`s share of the money, has her especially worried.

"She`s really obsessed with that book," the source said
adding that the book is Empress Bianca, a novel that
reportedly is a "thinly veiled fictionalisation of
international socialite Lily Safra, written by Princess Diana
biographer Lady Colin Campbell".

Woods` wife is also said to be serious about buying a
home in Arizona since the home she currently shares with Tiger
in Windemere, Florida has become "a place that has way too
many unhappy memories for her".

Reports of Elin wanting to divorce her golfer husband
surfaced after Woods` affairs with a number of women came to
light.
