Tiger Woods and his wife, Elin, in June. Woods has faced a maelstrom of negative publicity set off by his car crash Friday.

As more women come out of the woodwork alleging affairs with Tiger Woods, and details about his mysterious car crash two weeks ago continue to emerge including that he may have been under the influence of alcohol and prescription drugs, it seems his wife has had enough, The Times reported on Tuesday in its website.

Woods'wife, Elin Nordegren, has reportedly moved out of the family's $2.6 million home in Windermere, Florida, where the world No 1 golfer is understood to remain in seclusion after revelations of his extra-marital trysts, the report said.

According to the celebrity website, Ms Nordegren has moved into a house nearby as the couple, who have two young children, try to work on their marriage amid the international headlines about Woods' "transgressions".

There were also reports Ms Nordegren's mother, Swedish politician Barbro Holmberg, has been in the US since the weekend to support her daughter.
Woods, 33, has been linked to up to nine women since it was first reported he crashed his Cadillac vehicle into a fire hydrant outside his home on November 27 after reportedly arguing with his wife.

Days after the crash Woods was linked to a New York night clubber, other women – including a Las Vegas party girl and a Florida waitress - began to come forward, selling their stories to tabloids with tales of trysts with Woods.

Woods has not spoken publicly but released a statement on his website last Wednesday saying he had let his family down. "I regret those transgressions with all of my heart," Woods said. "I have not been true to my values and the behavior my family deserves."

He went on to say: "I am not without faults and I am far short of perfect. I am dealing with my behavior and personal failings behind closed doors with my family," before pleading for privacy.

To add to his woes, it was also reported that a Florida Highway Patrol trooper suspected Woods had drunk alcohol and had taken the prescription drugs Ambien and Vicadin on the day of his car accident, according to a subpoena request by the officer which was rejected by a state prosecutor.

The subpoena request made by Trooper Joshua A. Evans said: "The driver lost control of his vehicle, crashed and was transported to the hospital. A witness stated that the driver had consumed alcohol earlier in the day and the same witness removed the driver from the vehicle after the collision".
