Cheapskate TIGER WOODS is begging his ex to take him back – so he can save a whopping $54 million!
The golfer’s been buttering up Elin Nordegren – and when his girlfriend, Olympic skier Lindsey Vonn, found out, she dumped him, sources told The National ENQUIRER.
“Tiger has been sweet-talking Elin in texts, emails and calls in an attempt to wriggle out of a multi-million dollar payment he’s due to make to her in January 2016,” said the source.
Tiger, 39, still owes Elin $54 million as part of their 2010 divorce settlement.
If he doesn’t pay her off by Jan. 15, 2016, he could reportedly lose his home in Jupiter Island, Fla., since a holding company created by Elin holds the home’s mortgage.
Said another insider: “Tiger is worth $600 million, but he’s a tightwad!”
The plan “blew up in his face” when Lindsey found out.
Added the source: “It was a huge betrayal to Lindsey. After basically devoting three years to him and his kids, she told Tiger, ‘It’s over!’ It was brutal. He didn’t expect it at all.”
Even worse, Elin – who received $110 million in their divorce after The ENQUIRER unmasked Tiger as a serial cheater – isn’t likely to let him off the hook.
Said the source: “Elin just wants Tiger to settle his debt.”
Meanwhile, Tiger’s two young kids could be “scarred for life” by his split from Lindsey, according to a top expert.
Lindsey, 30, was frequently seen with Tiger’s cubs – daughter Sam Alexis, 7, and son Charlie Axel, 6.
Dr. Gilda Carle, who has not treated the youngsters, told The ENQUIRER: “Their father had been with Lindsey for a good part of their lives.
“His children might process the split as something they caused, and suffer a sense of guilt and abandonment.”
