Greg Norman's more expensive divorce than Tiger Wooods' one
Greg Norman's more expensive divorce than Tiger Wooods' one. According to Reuters, when his first marriage to Laura Andrassy failed after the golfer’s affair with tennis superstar Chris Evert, his ex-wife got a good chunk of his initial earnings.
Norman’s divorce cost the legendary golfer $103 million, with more money going to his children. It’s the biggest divorce payoff in golf history. Tiger Woods' divorce came up short of Greg Norman’s one as the most expensive in the golf’s long history.
The divorce from Elin Nordegren, after discovering the golfer’s infidelities, cost Tiger Woods $100 million, a lot for the average millionaire but pocket change for one of the world’s most prominent athletes.
However, Woods’ costly divorce from Nordegren still isn’t the most expensive in the sports’ history: now the Greg Norman leads this paricular ranking.
