Her divorce final from superstar golfer Tiger Woods, Elin Nordegren gave her first — and she claims, her last — interview to People magazine, saying in this week’s cover story that “my main focus is to try to give myself time to heal.” The 30-year-old mother of two sat with the magazine for 19 hours, reflecting on the painful ordeal of the last nine months, when Woods’ numerous infidelities became public, while taking a positive attitude towards her future. “I also feel stronger than I ever have. I have confidence in my beliefs, my decisions and myself.”
Will this be People‘s best-selling issue of the year? Could you hear Katie Couric and Diane Sawyer’s hearts fracture when they read this will be Nordegren’s only interview?
UPDATE: Tiger Woods spoke out about Nordegren and the People cover during a press conference at The Barclays golf tournament, the magazine reports. “I wish her the best in everything,” Woods said. “It’s a sad time in our lives. And we’re looking forward to how we can help our kids the best way we possibly can. And that’s the most important thing.”
