And so too is ex-wife Elin Nordegren, 30, who spoke publicly for the first (and last) time last week. According to a report in the Sunday Times of London, the former Swedish model who is now taking classes towards a psychology degree, has plans for her eight-figure settlement (or nine figures, depending on who's telling the story):
Elin Nordegren, whose divorce was finalized last Monday, is considering spending some of her $65 million settlement to set up a clinic providing mental-health counseling to underprivileged families in Florida...It's a noble endeavor, for sure. "Elin has a lot of ideas, including setting up her own clinic to help poorer children suffering from mental illnesses such as depression, eating disorders and hypertension, which can result from living in a broken family." "Maybe it's not surprising, but she feels strongly that children are the real victims when marriages fail," one of her campus colleagues told the paper.
Associates say Nordegren has been discussing with her twin sister, Josefin, a London-based lawyer, how she might use part of her settlement to help broken families and, in particular, children.
