(Newser) – Elin Nordegren's whopping $750 million divorce settlement from her roving duffer isn't coming without strings attached. She has to keep her mouth shut, and promise not to speak publicly about her troubled marriage to Tiger Woods and his nearly countless lovers for the rest of her life, the Sun reports. For his part, Tiger can't bring any girlfriends into his kids' lives until after he marries one of them. "Elin is desperate to protect the children from the womanizing side of their father," said a source.

Yet, despite all of the problems, Elin "admits Tiger loves his kids and has been a decent dad," said the pal. The children will stay with Elin, but the two will share legal custody of Charlie, 1, and Sam, 3, which means Elin won't be able to permanently relocate to her native Sweden. Nordegren's $750 million deal, expected to be filed in court within the week, is believed to be the biggest-ever celebrity divorce settlement. "Elin's legal team have done a great job digging up all sort of assets," her friend explains.
