Love, etc.: Tiger Woods' divorce finalized

Divorced: Tiger Woods and Elin Nordegren Monday in Florida. The golf great, 34, and his wife of six years, 30, finalized their split in Bay County Circuit Court in Panama City, reports People.

"We are sad that our marriage is over and we wish each other the very best for the future," the couple said in a statement released by Nordegren's law firm. "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 couple has two children, Sam Alexis, 3, and Charlie Axel, 1.

Yeah, but the big question---how much money did she get----remains a mystery. Details of the settlement were not disclosed, although sources tell the magazine a prenuptial agreement was renegotiated after Wood's sex scandal became public. Various media reports say Nordegren will receive at least $100 million.

Great. Now the snarling jackals of medialoid (mainstream media infected by tabloid journalism) must lie in wait for another victim by which to generate page views. *yawn*

Mr. and Mrs. Woods will never know if divorce was really their decision or that of the tabloid proctologist press making a fearful prognosis come true. After all, Mrs. Woods, angry and publicly humiliated, was stalked by the media from Day 1 urging her to take a stand, make a statement -- by deadline of course. She wouldn't or couldn't escape the din: "When's the divorce", "Don't let him get away with it", "Who gets the kids?" Mr. Woods committed serial adultery -- morally betraying his marriage vows. Yet, there was no tabloid-free zone where Mr. and Mrs. Woods could hash out their differences IN THEIR OWN GOOD TIME -- press deadlines be cursed. Now the Woods Family is torn apart -- not only victims of press frenzy, but tools as well. There's a viciousness akin to Extreme Sports that infects newsgathering and reporting today where people are considered mere PREY for the day's news cycle -- trapped, dissected and discarded. Consumers lap it up like a narcotic that dulls the senses. Soon we don't know what's true or false and, worse, we no longer care.
