(Newser) – Elin Nordegren is cashing in on her husband’s cheating scandal—that is, if the British tabloids are to be believed. Nordegren told pals her Christmas gift from Tiger Woods was “three hundred million dollars, thank you very much,” a source tells News of the World, adding that Nordegren is “100% determined to split with Tiger,” and has not allowed him to see their children for almost a month.

Nordegren has a private investigator probing Woods’ fortune to ensure she “gets every penny she’s entitled to,” a source tells the Mirror. She celebrated the new year, and her 30th birthday, at an $8,000-a-night French ski resort, the New York Daily News reports, while sources say Woods—and a blond companion—holed up at a Trump Hotel. Despite it all, E! adds, Nordegren put her wedding rings back on this weekend.
