Tiger Woods London, Dec 16 (ANI): Tiger Woods’ wife Elin Nordegren could get half the 337.5-million-pound fortune the sportstar has earned as she prepares to meet divorce lawyers, it has emerged.

According to reports, the Swedish model has called in California’s top celebrity divorce lawyer.

It is believed that the 29-year-old, who was recently seen minus her wedding ring, will be meeting celebrity lawyer Sorrell Trope next week, reports The Mirror.

Trope, 82, a partner in Californian law firm Trope and Trope, has represented A-listers including Cary Grant, Nicole Kidman, Nicolas Cage and Britney Spears.

Sources have claimed that Elin is planning to file for divorce in California - where the couple have a home - and not Florida, where they live.

Under California law the “no-fault divorce”, introduced in 1970, means there is an equal division of assets and property.

A source said: “Mr Trope is the best divorce lawyer in the business and the divorce laws in California are much more favourable than most other states.

“Elin can fight for half of what her husband has earned since they were married. And Trope can bust through any pre-nup - he’s done it many times before.”

Meanwhile, Woods, 33, has confessed infidelity after he was reported of having romanced as many as 12 women.

The world no.1 revealed has taken an indefinite break from professional golf to mend his personal life. (ANI)
