I guess they have gotten better over the years. They used to be a dubious at best tabloid.

I'm still not convinced Tiger is stupid enough to throw away half his fortune to get back together with his ex though.

In fairness, though, I actually feel a little for Tiger (not that he didn't do it to himself). How many guys have blown a great thing romantically? Except us nobodies can go out and find it again. We don't have to worry about a person's motives. A person in Tiger's shoes has to worry constantly about whether a love interest is interested in him for his money/fame. The one woman that he knows is not impressed by his money/fame is the one he lost.

Wealthy/famous persons can be pretty lonely for this reason. Its why so many only date other wealthy/famous persons, who aren't impressed with it. Except in Tiger's case, I don't think many other wealthy/famous women are too interested in him, at least none that have Elin's class and looks. So in his mind, his options are a lifetime of questionable bimbos (possible gold diggers) or get Elin back.

Sure, sure, she would have married him if he was working part time at Jiffy Lube. It was never about the money or fame, nope.

Exactly. He married her for her looks, she married him for the money. Anyone that thinks otherwise is delusional.

She wasn't too interested in him when Tiger first started pursuing her, according to the guy who set them up. Tiger asked her out like three times or something before she said yes, she knew who he was then. I dare say that qualifies as 'I'm not terribly impressed by your money' behavior.

And women don't like being chased. Nope.

Have you had as much experience with women as Manti Te'o or even less?

Hmm, I don't know about that. I certainly wasn't the one-woman type earlier in my life, but I am definitely done with all of that now. One woman for me from now on, and I'm not even close to being tired of her

Maybe he actually loves her and doesn't care about the money.

Then he wouldn't have cheated on her. But he did not once, but about 12 times. Who in their right mind would like him back?

eh, that's not National Enquirer, that is Weekly World News. NE publishes random photos of celebrities and fabricates stories about them--stories that could actually be true, but more often fabricated.

Wow. Dude might be a straight up sociopath. Probably wants to remarry Elin because sleeping way beneath him and his supermodel wife just isn't the same when she isn't his wife. Given the pattern that led to the divorce, I'd bet on it.

totally false...ive known plenty of people who have cheated but love their wife..not saying they did the right thing, in fact i am very anti-cheater...but that doesn't mean he doesn't love her

I agree that he doesn't DESERVE her back, although that is up to her.

Either way, it brings us back to my point. She has $100+ million now. If she takes him back, her interest in him won't be his money.

Stories say he has a horse dick and is an uber monster sexually. That could also be why she married him. His fame could have also been a reason.
