Divorce of Tiger Woods and Elin Nordegren is now final, but can they really move on?

Elin Nordegren and Tiger Woods, in happier times. (AP) It's official: Tiger Woods and Elin Nordegren are now divorced. The papers were finalized today in Bay County Circuit Court in Florida, but no settlement terms were divulged. "While we are no longer married, we are the parents of two wonderful children and their happiness has been, and will always be, of paramount importance to both of us," the former couple said in a joint statement. It's tempting to say the mess of the divorce is now behind them. But it probably won't be for a little while. More details -- including that settlement amount -- will undoubtedly be dredged up in the coming days. (TMZ's already released the court papers, in handy, easy-to-print PDF form.) But Woods and Nordegren are at least a little closer to being able to move on. The question is: Can they? Can Nordegren live...

More speculation about the alleged Tiger Woods divorce settlement

Posted by Jen Chaney As noted briefly in this morning's mix, People magazine -- along with a flurry of other news outlets -- are jumping on reports that Tiger Woods and Elin Nordegren are closer to reaching a divorce settlement. Tiger Woods, circa 2008. (Getty Images) Citing anonymous sources, People has now stated that Nordegren is likely to get around $700 million in the divorce, money that allegedly will buy her silence and prevent her from sharing more details about Woods's extra-marital affairs. Thus far, no one has gone on the record to confirm any of this. A call to Jeffrey Fisher, the Florida attorney reportedly representing Woods in the case, has not yet been returned. His assistant said he is currently in a meeting but would be back in touch with the Post. More if/when any new (and legitimate) information emerges...

Tiger Woods Apology: Will Tiger join the shame hall of fame?

And so the Tiger hype machine rolls on... The Post's Paul Farhi this afternoon writes about what we should expect from Woods at Friday's press conference: [Woods's tight control of the event] means a few million TV viewers will likely see only what Woods and his managers want them to see: a contrite superstar, surrounded by friends and supporters, vowing to live up to his former image as a family man. Will it be enough to restore Woods's pre-tabloid image? And, to put things in proper historical context, Farhi also ticks off a shame hall of fame with this video review of high-profile celebrity apologies -- from David Letterman's apology for sleeping with a staffer to Jimmy Swaggart's "I have sinned against you, my lord" to Bill Clinton's "I did not have sexual relations with that woman." In case you missed it, read the transcripts of today's earlier chat with...

Tiger Woods Apology: The Countdown

In a newly-released photo Tiger Woods jogs near his Florida home on Wednesday. (Getty Images) Updated 4:05 p.m. ET Update: A North Carolina radio station is claiming it has obtained the text of Tiger's prepared Friday statement. The headline in the unconfirmed text is an admission that Woods and wife Elin Nordegren have decided to separate. Not surprisingly, Team Tiger is saying the statement is absolutely false. -- 1:42 p.m. ET --- In less than 24 hours, Tiger Woods will step behind a podium at TPC Sawgrass golf course in Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla. to speak publicly for the first time since the fall. The fall, of course, being a series of image-breaking events that began with a Thanksgiving weekend car crash followed by the emergence of at least a dozen extra-marital affairs. The location -- the PGA tour headquarters -- suggests that the event will be tightly orchestrated...
