Tiger Woods' wife breaks silence

Tiger Woods' ex-wife Elin Nordegren has broken her silence on their marriage and said she had "been through hell" since learning of his affairs.

In an interview with People magazine in the US, Nordegren denied ever hitting the golf star and said she and Woods tried for months to reconcile the relationship.

In the end, she said a marriage "without trust or love" was not good for anyone.

In November Woods drove his car into a tree outside the family home after what appeared to be a domestic row, setting off revelations that he had been cheating on his wife in multiple affairs.

She said she knew nothing about the affairs saying she was "blindsided" and "embarrassed" by them.

"I never suspected, not a one," she said in the exclusive interview. "For the last three-and-a-half years, when all this was going on, I was home a lot more with pregnancies, then the children and my school."

Nordegren told the magazine that she never hit Woods, calling speculation that she hit him with a golf club "truly ridiculous."

While she has withheld some details, Nordegren, 30, said she was speaking out now because she wanted to set the record straight.

But she told People she had no intention of discussing the subject in public again, saying she hoped she and her two children could get the privacy they needed to start their new lives.

She is on the cover of this week's issue of the magazine, just two days after the couple officially divorced.
