Tiger Woods 'checks into rehab to keep shared custody of his two children' after DUI
Tiger Woods has checked into a Florida rehabilitation center in order to keep shared custody of his two children after his 3am DUI arrest last month, it has been claimed.
The golfer is said to have booked out the entire male inpatient unit at The Jupiter Medical Center for 28 days to be treated for 'pain killer addiction'.
Radar Online cites an anonymous source who said the stint aims to settle the concerns of his ex-wife Elin Nordegren.
The pair have shared custody of daughter Sam, nine, and son Charlie, eight, since their 2010 divorce but, according to the friend, part of their agreement was that Woods was to avoid any public scandal in order to keep his share.
If he breaks it, he could see his time with the children cut by 20 percent - leaving them with Elin 70 percent of the time and giving him just 30 percent.
Woods' arrest on May 29 has prompted her to consider applying for full custody of the children, they claimed.
The Jupiter Medical Center declined to comment on his reported stay on Monday and lawyers involved in negotiating his custody agreement with Nordegren did not respond to requests.
Woods' long-term agent Mark Steinberg also declined to address the reports.
