Reports: Tiger Woods' divorce settlement won't hit $750M

July 1, 2010 |  4:52 pm


Tiger Woods' divorce couldn't cost him $750 million, because he doesn't have that much money, Forbes' SportsMoney column argued Thursday, countering a Wednesday report in London's Sun that came courtesy of an unnamed source allegedly on Elin Nordegren's side of things.

Forbes says that by its math, the golfer's net worth is $600 million. 

TMZ, citing sources close to Tiger and alleging that the divorce is a done deal except for the filing, concurs that the $750-million rumor is way too high. One TMZ source does say Elin is likely to take away more than she agreed to in their prenup.

Reporters from the Sun-Sentinel, meanwhile, have their eyes on the courthouse in Orange County, Fla. -- not Orlando County, as the Sun's report professed -- waiting to see if this rumored divorce filing actually takes place.
