After reports last week that had Tiger Woods' wife Elin Nordegren leaving for her native Sweden for the holidays with the kids, a photographer with website X17 is reporting a motorcade of two police cars and eight police motorcycles has arrived at the family's gated-community home in Florida, "presumably to escort Elin out."
Two police helicopters are also part of the operation.
Woods has not been seen in public since he was taken to hospital on Nov. 27 after the infamous car crash that brought his infidelities to public light, and was reported last week to being holed up along at home and close to the edge.
However, People.com reports that he might have sailed off from North Palm Beach this weekend with some friends on his 155-ft. luxury yacht to cruise in the Bahamas for a few days.
Meanwhile, celebrity gossipers are atwitter with conflicting reports of whether Nordegren will go through with an immediate plan to divorce cheating husband Woods.
According to popular celeb site TMZ, Nordegren just can't get over Woods' alleged three-year affair with 40-year-old Theresa Rogers, that started before their marriage, as well as reports that he cheated during her pregnancy. One source said the "divorce is 100% on."
But Nordegren's newly hired celebrity divorce attorney Raoul Felder told the U.K. Telegraph that she would be "financially ill-advised" to walk out on the philandering golfer at this point, as she could miss out on more than $50 million if she pulled the trigger now.
Felder said that, according to Florida law, Nordegren would only be entitled to the sum agreed in the prenuptial agreement before the couple married in 2004 ≠believed to be $20 million.
Days after the sex scandal started to unfold, the couple reportedly began renegotiating their prenup. Lawyers familiar with those discussions said she could be paid up to an additional $55 million to stay with Woods for just two more years.
"If this is a financial calculation, then I don't think you will see her seeking a divorce," Felder told the Telegraph. "If she left now, she would only get the prenup deal. You normally don't get extra reparations for adultery or humiliation."
Elsewhere, Team Tiger defenders continue to come out of the woodwork.
Former tennis champion Boris Becker, 42, who fathered a child with a Russian model after a brief sexual encounter in a cupboard at a London restaurant while his wife was pregnant, said he could identify with the golf star.
"I experienced exactly the same and I can sympathize with him," the German newspaper Bild quoted Becker, winner of six grand slam titles, as telling a TV show to be aired Monday.
Becker, who had a messy divorce and became the butt of jokes for his flings, said he believed it would be "damned hard" for father-of-two Woods to save his marriage to Swede Elin Nordegren.
