Elin Speaks…on Scandal, Divorce From Tiger
By Stephanie Wei under Tiger Woods

Whoa. Elin Nordegren is no longer silent. Since her ex-husband’s car accident last November, Elin hasn’t spoken to the press, but she shrewdly gave her first interview to People magazine with the headline, “My Own Story.” In 19 hours over four visits to her rental home in Windermere, FL, she reveals to People the “emotional roller coaster she’s been on, her life as a mother to Sam, 3, and Charlie, 19 months, and her hopes for the future.”

“I have been through the stages of disbelief and shock, to anger and ultimately grief over the loss of the family I so badly wanted for my children,” she says in the magazine’s latest issue, out just days after her split from Tiger Woods was made official.

The 30-year-old mother of two, who is studying towards a college degree in psychology, says that despite her husband’s betrayal, “I also feel stronger than I ever have. I have confidence in my beliefs, my decisions and myself.”

“My immediate plan is for the kids and me to continue to adjust to our new situation. I am going to keep taking classes, but my main focus is to try to give myself time to heal,” she says.

Elin also told the magazine that the exclusive would be her first and last interview as she plans to remain a private person.
