Elin Nordegren breaks her silence: “I’ve been through hell”

Tiger Woods ex-wife Elin Nordegren has finally broken her silence, nearly a year after the scandal broke. She tells PEOPLE she was “blindsided” and “embarrassed”.

“I’ve been through hell” she says. While her divorce was finalized on Monday, she said they tried for months to make it work. In the end, she decided she couldn’t trust him, and she was no longer in love with him. “Initially, I thought we had a chance, and we tried really hard. I felt stupid as more things were revealed — how could I not have known anything? The word ‘betrayal’ isn’t strong enough.”

Even after all she’s been through, Elin still won’t trash Woods. She says “I wish him all the best in the future, as a person and as an athlete,” she says. “I know he is going to go down as the best golfer that ever lived, and rightfully so. I feel privileged to have witnessed a part of his golfing career.”

The interview took place over 19 hours at a home she’s rented in Windermere, Florida. Nordegren shared never-before-seen personal photographs with the magazine, and opened up about the emotional roller coaster she’s been on.

Of the affairs, Elin says she was completely blindsided. “I never suspected, not a one,” Elin says of Tiger’s many affairs, which included porn stars and Rachel Uchitel. “For the last three-and-a-half years, when all this was going on, I was home a lot more with pregnancies, then the children and my school.”

At first it was rumored that Elin would receive $750 million in her divorce from Tiger, 34 (he’s worth an estimated $1 billion). Sources now say that Elin will actually walk away with closer to $100 million. “Money can’t buy happiness,” Elin says, “or put my family back together.”

So what’s next for Elin, 30, and her two children Sam, 3, and Charlie, 19 months. “My immediate plan is for the kids and me to continue to adjust to our new situation. I am going to keep taking classes, but my main focus is to try to give myself time to heal,” she says.

She tells PEOPLE that this is her first – and last – interview, she intends to remain a private person.

Tiger Woods Gives Up Orlando Home In Divorce

Tiger Woods is giving up the Orlando home he and soon-to-be ex-wife Elin Woods once shared. This is all a part of the couples multi-million dollar divorce settlement.

At first Elin was planning on taking the nearly finished home in Jupiter, Florida. She has close friends in the area so it made since. But she later changed her mind and decided to go with the Orlando home.

“Elin had planned a trip in July but postponed it,” the source said.

“Things were being worked out.”

“It looks like Tiger is going to make the Jupiter home his permanent residence,” the source told

“It’s got a state of the art gym and was built to his specs. And it keeps him just a few hour drive from his children.”

The Windemere home was the location of the best and worst times of the couple’s marriage.

Tiger and Elin lived in the luxury gated community with their two children until Tiger’s secret life of serial cheating was exposed.

Elin may move back into the Windemere home or sell it, the source said.

“She hasn’t lived there in more than a year and that home has good and bad memories for her,” the source told

“She hasn’t told anyone if she’s going to keep it or sell it. But one thing is for sure, she will walk away from the marriage with enough money to do whatever she wants.”

Making this even harder on Elin was finding out that Tiger had an affair with a neighbor’s 21 year old daughter.

In the early morning hours after Thanksgiving last year, Elin confronted Tiger about his affairs. After the confrontation he drove into a hedge and a tree.

Tiger went to rehab, but the marriage could not be saved as more and more affairs were revealed in the press.

Tiger Woods and Elin Nordegren agree to share custody of their children.

Tiger and Elin are moving forward with their divorce, and sources claim they both agree to shared custody of their two children together.

They have not been getting along as a married couple but there has been no conflict over the children,” the source told “They both want what’s best for the kids.

“This isn’t going to get ugly. They’ve both made sure of that.”

Tiger and Elin have been separate for some time, with Elin and the children living in a rented home a mile away from the home she used to share with Tiger in Florida.

According to RadarOnline, at one point, Elin may have been considering getting back together with Tiger after the scandal broke. But then Tiger messed it all up when he returned to golf, a move she considered too soon and wasn’t committed to building a new relationship with her.

Can you blame her?

Tiger Woods Divorce is ‘100 Percent Happening’

Though Tiger Woods was reportedly hoping to mend fences with his wife Elin after his sex scandal fractured their marriage, it looks like divorce is par for this course.

A source close to the family tells Us Weekly, “It’s 100 percent happening … It’s going to take a long time to go through. [But] she will go through with it. She is all about being a mom. She will do it slowly and carefully.”

While Tiger parties in the U.S. — TMZ found the golfer hanging out backstage during a Nickelback concert in Florida earlier this week — “Elin and the kids are out there visiting with [Elin’s] family in Stockholm,” the source says.

The friend adds that Elin has ordered “nonstop construction” on her new $3 million home on Sweden’s west coast. “She is definitely planning on spending a lot of time there — they are gutting it … She and the kids are going to be spending most of the summer there. Without Tiger.”

Reportedly, Elin has also looked at properties in Florida — sources tell PopEater’s Naughty But Nice columnist Rob Shuter that a full-time move to Sweden is out of the question. “No way would Tiger let Elin leave the USA with his children. You can say whatever you want about Tiger as a husband, but he has always been a great father,” an insider told Rob. “He knows his marriage is probably over, but he will never give up on those kids. They mean the world to him.”
