Did Elin Outsell Brad And Ange?!

Almost!

People magazine was so confident their Elin Nordegren issue would be a big seller that they raised the price and printed more copies which they haven't done since the debut of Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt's twins back in August 2008!

An insider reveals:

"Everyone at People will be popping the champagne this morning. Early numbers show that Elin sold around 2 million copies, way up from its average of 1.4 million, yet not quite the 2.5 million Angelina sold."

But the Elin issue was ultimately more profitable because she opened up to the mag for free whereas Ange and Brad got paid $12 million!

A friend of Elin's says:

"This wasn't about the money for Elin. It was about telling her story once and for all. She will be happy that so many people bought the issue and finally read the truth. But now she hopes they all go away and leave her and her family alone. The last thing in the world Elin wanted to be was a celebrity."

But she's on the cover of a best-selling issue of People so we think it's a safe bet that she IS a celebrity — at least for now!

    She's handled this with such class. Now go have fun with your 100 million!



  2. 2

    when I first saw the picture I had no idea that was her. She looks way different.

    I went to school with Elin in Orlando and she is truly a class act. On the Brad and Angelina thing though….didnt they give all that money directly to a charity? I believe they did and Elin could have done the same thing.

    she did that for free? what a retard! she should have demanded millions and then given it to charity!

    Is it just me or I am wrong to be totally unmoved by this story of a marital breakup whereby the wife was given $100 million to drift off into the sunset and lick her wounds? Her smug face on the cover makes me want to throw up actually. What the hell is happening in the world when we are expected to start feeling sympathy for the likes of Elin. I am glad to remain detatched from this non story about one very lucky woman.

    the magazine cover was almost perfect - people should've just put elin on the cover and got rid of the usher photo/headline.

    if the issue made so much, would people donate part of the proceeds to charity in elin's name?

    tiger in his interviews (with a lot of coaching from his publicists i'm sure) is still the same old tiger…he projected a man sorry that he got caught but deep inside remains arrogant.

    i wish elin and her kids the best.

    I think that it was actually one of the best issues they have put out in general since they were a "REAL" magazine instead of the tabloid that they have become.

    Re: Aileen (Canada) – It's pretty sad that you wouldn't have sympathy for "the likes of Elin." She was married to a man who cheated on her and humiliated her and her children. That's an extraordinarily difficult thing to go through, money or no money.

    She should have taken the 12 million, maybe donated it to charity, why let People get all the money.

    BRANGELINA AND THEIR BULL&HIT IS A DIME A DOZEN IN ANY GROCERY STORE IN AMERICA. WHO CARES ABOUT THEM AND THEIR SHORT BUS TWINS?

    I read that the money that Elin was to received from People's interview was donated directly to several children's organizations!!!!Elin is a class act through and through.Elin seems to have found her life purpose after having gone through fire and she will have a happy and fullfilling future helping children in need!!! God bless Elin and her children!!!!

    She does not have to take money and give money to charity if she does not want. Just because Brangelina did it, doesn't it mean she should. So get off her back.



  14. 14

    She should have gotten the money and keep them to herself. How many of you give to charity ?
    Obviously she did it for free because if she had taken any money people like the lot of you here, would call her a gold-digger like you do with all women .
    Re: Aileen (Canada) – It is just you moron. Fuck off and go away.



  15. 15

    Re: Aileen (Canada) – Really, fuck off. You no nothing about her. Jealous? She is beautiful, moral and handled herself with grace. Smug? Hardly, just a young woman surviving a tragedy; the explosion and exploitation of her family, due to circumstances not in her control. Re: ParalyZzzZzer – You might be my new HERO!

    Re: Aileen (Canada)

    Palease!! She was a model. Model = Celebrity. Plus someone who doesn't want to be a celebrity wouldn't give their story to People Magazine. Team Tiger.



  18. 18

    You're a moron.

    Re: Aileen (Canada) – you are truly sad.. you are either a dumb bitch who is jealous cause she didn't get shit in a divorce.. or more likely…
    a douche who cheated and got taken to the cleaners by your smart ex-wife
    either way.. you are a sad sad person and should stop being an ignorant asswipe.. and realized that this woman was happily married raising children and then her entire world fell apart.. her husband publicly humiliated her and now she has to deal with that every day… not only did he cheat with multiple skanks but the whole world know about it.. no money can make up for that… douche



  21. 21

    I bought the magazine just because I wanted to read what Elin had to say. This is one classy lady. She has handled this horrible situation with grace, her main concern being her children. What a beautiful lady….now everyone should back off and leave her alone.



  22. 22

    Class act unlike you Mario you douchebag

    Re: Aileen (Canada) – you're retarded

  25. 25

    she deserves better,

    I commend Elin Nordegren for her courage and determination to come public! Elin has a right to set the record straight after all the false rumors and innuendos that has been said about her for the last nine months. Elin has been badly wronged by Tiger, his mistresses and the media, so it is only fair that she has her say!!! Elin has been an inspiration to all the decent women around the world because of her dignity, self respect, courage and grace during this horrid ordeal! Elin and her precious children will have a very happy and bright future, because it is in the cards!!!
