Elin Nordegren finally broke her silence this week—something we’ve been waiting on for months now. But her interview with People was apparently thoughtfully constructed.
According to Popeater Elin was offered TV interviews by several different outlets, but turned them all down. A source close to the situation says, "After Elin contacted the magazine, she went back and forth many times about doing the interview.
"This was a major step for Elin and something she thought long and hard about. She wanted to correct a lot of the stories in the press, but at the same time didn't want to do a tell-all interview that would pick a scab off a very ugly period for her."
"Sitting down and doing one big interview and photo shoot will hopefully put the period at the end of the sentence," a magazine insider says. "She spent over 19 hours with the magazine and never lost her cool. She came across as a class act. A total lady."
Elin reportedly opted for a print interview so that she could still hide her real emotions. "Print is more removed than TV. You can stop a print interview at any moment and take a break to regain your thoughts," the source explains. "Whoever is advising Elin should also be advising Tiger. This is the perfect response to what he did to her."
It’s definitely selling magazines! And with the alleged settlement Elin is getting (reportedly $100 million), she doesn’t need the extra money from TV networks to tell her story.
