Money can’t buy love (so they say…) but it looks like it bought Tiger Woods some good will and phone time – if not yet face time -with his kids. According to the Daily Mail, while scorned wife Elin escaped the harsh media glare and celebrated her 30th birthday at a tony French ski resort, Tiger gifted her with with $300 million dollars and in and later the two supposedly had “a series of friendly phone calls.” Some sources say the hefty sum might signal a reconciliation but others claim it’s simply “Elin looking out for the financial future of her kids” and that she’s definitely moving forward with a split.
Sadly, the kids are, well, sad. According to “insiders,” Elin doesn’t feel that Tiger is in any shape to be around his kids and as a result, has kept them from him for several weeks. We can assume long separations were par for the course (pun intended…) for the Woods family, with Tiger traveling the world as he did. But the kids are getting older now and long separations from Dad are most likely getting harder.
Despite these extreme circumstances, should Elin have stayed closer to home to give the kids some semblance of stability and continuity in their lives?
