NEW YORK - Tiger Woods' Swedish-born wife Elin Nordegren wants a divorce because of the golfing great's extramarital flings, People magazine reported yesterday.

"She plans to leave Tiger," one unidentified source "close to the golfer's wife" was quoted as saying.

The former model and mother of two has met with lawyers to renegotiate her prenuptial agreement with the billionaire sportsman, the report said, quoting an unnamed source.

"She's made up her mind. There's nothing to think about: he's never going to change," another source is quoted saying.

Photos published in tabloid media this week purported to show Nordegren, 29, without her wedding ring, while the New York Post reported that she was overseeing removal workers at the house she shared with Woods in Florida.

"She's making plans to move out and take the kids with her," the Post quoted another unnamed source as saying. "She's planning to go somewhere warm and Tiger-free for Christmas."

Woods has since admitted to infidelity and announced an indefinite break from golf.

On Monday it emerged that Nordegren had bought a beachfront estate on an island near Stockholm. - AFP
