With all the allegations of drugs, sex and scandal surrounding Tiger Woods, he may be fleeing from the American media and heading to Sweden along with wife Elin Nordegren. According to ABC News, Tiger and Elin are planning an escape to Sweden, where they will plan their next move. “Tiger is going to Sweden with his wife, and they want to leave as soon as possible,” a close friend of Elin told ABCNews.com.
The Swedish papers’ reports are similar, according to ABC, and last week confirmed that Elin had purchased a $2 million home on an island off Stockholm, reachable only by boat.
According to Elin’s friend who spoke to ABC News, “[Elin’s] not rushing to divorce. … She’s going to take her sweet time. She wants all the dirty laundry to be out on the table before she signs anything.”
That scandal grew today with allegations from Hollywood madam Michelle Braun that she arranged meetings with Tiger and at least four prostitutes from 2006 to 2007 for a total cost of $60,000, according to the New York Post.
“Tiger has been one of Michelle’s clients for years,” private investigator Dan Hanks, who worked for Braun, checking her clients’ backgrounds, told ABC News.com. [ED. NOTE: Hanks tells OKmagazine.com he was not actually working for Braun, but operating undercover for a local TV news program.]
Hanks, who had access to Braun’s client list and spoke with Braun earlier in the week about Tiger, said he knew of an occasion in which Tiger hired three prostitutes at one time for an evening in Las Vegas.
Elin’s friend said she was completely blindsided by accusations that her husband had affairs with as many as a dozen women.
“Elin had absolutely no idea whatsoever that there were any mistresses until very recently,” she said.
