Tiger Woods’ Ex-Wife Elin Nordegren Speaks Out For 1st Time To People Magazine “I’ve Been Through Hell”


Tiger Woods’ ex-wife Elin Nordegren said she’s “been through hell” since her hubby’s infidelity surfaced last November — but that she “feels stronger than I ever have” following the split, according to an interview released today.

Nordegren told People magazine she and Woods tried for months to reconcile.

In the end, a marriage “without trust and love” wasn’t good for anyone, Nordegren said in her first, and what she called last, interview.

On Thanksgiving night outside their Florida home, Woods drove his SUV into a tree outside his driveway, setting off a series of shocking revelations that the golf superstar had been cheating on his wife with a bevy of chicks.

The couple officially announced their divorce on Monday.

Nordegren told People she never hit Woods on the night of the car crash.

There was never any violence inside or outside our home,” she said. “The speculation … is just truly ridiculous.”

Nordegren said Woods stormed out of the house that night and when he didn’t return after a few minutes she got worried and went to look for him.

That’s when she found him in the car, she said.

I did everything I could to get him out of the locked car,” she said. “To think anything else is absolutely wrong.”

Woods, who is playing at The Barclays in Paramus, NJ, has not commented on the divorce.

Nordegren said she would someday forgive Woods, but that she is still working on it.

“Forgiveness takes time,” she said. “It is the last step of the grieving process.”

People magazine said the interview was conducted over four visits lasting a total of 19 hours at the rented Windermere, Fla., home where she now lives with their two kids.

I’ve been through hell,” said Nordegren. “It’s hard to think you have this life, and then all of a sudden — was it a lie? You’re struggling because it wasn’t real. But I survived. It was hard, but it didn’t kill me.”

The Swedish stunner also said she has overcome.

I also feel stronger than I ever have. I have confidence in my beliefs, my decisions and myself,” she said.

Nordegren and Woods were married in 2004 and have a 3-year-old daughter Sam and an 18-month-old son Charlie.

In the interview, Nordegren would not discuss the monetary amount stemming from the divorce settlement, but did say “money can’t buy happiness or put my family back together.”

I’m so embarrassed that I never suspected — not a one,” she added. “For the past 3½ years, when all this was going on, I was home a lot more with pregnancies, then the children and my school.”
