Tiger Woods reportedly pays Elin Woods millions to remain his wife

When you're a near-billionaire athlete, and you get caught cheating on your wife, how do make things up to her? You buy her off, usually with a diamond ring.

However, Tiger would rather skip the ring process, so he instead immediately transfered a seven-figure amount into Elin's bank account - which she alone controls - to stick with him. Let's call it a "wife salary." That will certainly help.

On top of that, Elin has demanded — and is getting — a total rewrite on the couple's prenuptial agreement making the incentives for her to remain Mrs. Tiger Woods even better.

At this point, the couple needed to remain married for 10 years in order for Elin to collect a divorce settlement of $20 million. Apparently that time frame has been shortened and the dollar amount increased "substantially." 

They're also supposedly undergoing intense marriage counseling at home right now. But whatever. If Tiger keeps philandering, Elin's going to make out like a bandit.
