Elin Bought a House In Sweden Two Weeks Ago

Nancy Dillon and Corky Siemaszko of the NEW YORK DAILY NEWS reports that Elin Nordegren recently bought a house in Sweden, which has “fueled speculation (in Sweden) she might take the kids back to her homeland to start a new life far from her transgressing Tiger.

Elin Nordegren Buys Home In Sweden

(Nordegren bought $2M home in native Sweden ‘two weeks ago’)

“The official story from her family is that she bought the place with her twin sister, Josefin, not with Tiger,” said Poppe Linge of HPG, a Swedish news agency. “It belonged to a professional soccer player who wanted privacy,” Linge said. “I heard she started looking at it last summer and bought it two weeks ago.”

So the $2 million dollar purchase was consumated “two weeks ago”? Woods’ car accident happened 13 days ago and the NATIONAL ENQUIRER report of his alleged affair with Rachel Uchitel hit news stands the day before the accident. Coincidence?

Since Linge indicated Nordegren had been considering the property for some time, perhaps it was a coincidence. But why would she be buying a house now with her sister?

In the past five days, Nordegren’s mother, Barbro Holmberg, has flown in from Sweden, Elin has reportedly moved out of the family home and her Mom had some sort of health issue this morning that required an ambulance to the hospital.

With the emotional tumult in her life, I’m guessing Nordegren has at some point considered returning to her homeland. That decision might’ve been a much easier one if not for the couple’s two small children. For all we know, that’s why Nordegren hasn’t left Florida for Scandinavia by now and the reason her mom decided to make a previously unscheduled visit.
