On New Year's Day 2008, Indian tennis star Sania Mirza was pictured sitting with her feet resting on a table next to an Indian flag, as you see in the photo above. The incident was widely reported in the media. On 15 Jan 2008 BBC published the news with the headline, Sania Mirza considered quitting the sport after being accused of showing disrespect to the national flag. After newspapers published the controversial photograph taken during a match at the Hopman Cup in Australia, a complaint was filed by a person in the court in Bhopal, India, and it could have landed her in three years in jail and a fine under Prevention of Insult to the National Honour Act. However, Mirza denied showing disrespect to the flag, and said, “I just know that I would not do anything to disrespect my country…I love my country, I wouldn't be playing Hopman Cup otherwise, but besides that I am not allowed to comment."

The Baywatch actress Pamela Anderson has been campaigning against seal hunting in Canada. In May 2006, she interviewed several individuals on the street for their opinion on the Canadian Seal Hunt. In December, 2009, Anderson, photographed in a T-shirt with the picture of a seal pup on it, was featured in an ad campaign for PETA in which she appears next to the headline ‘Save the Seals’ in the ad and urges the public to help end ‘Canada's annual seal slaughter.’ She used to promote vegetarianism as well.
Nowadays 42-year-old Anderson is enjoying her single status. She says she is not thinking about getting into a relationship as she wants to focus on her dance, as she is participating in the talent show ‘Dancing With The Stars’. She wants to put on some daring and glitzy outfits for her dance performances. She hopes her strenuous dance rehearsals will help her shape up.
"I'm fairly single, but I'm not on the lookout. I'm going to keep all that just for the dance and my dance partner… Hopefully things will move around a bit - I've had two kids, you know! Dancing really works your body all over, so it's different from going to the gym, which I don't do! This is the only way I'm going to get round to working out because I'll have to do it," she told femalefirst.co.uk.

Sania Mirza Sohrab Mirza marriage after two years 2010, originally uploaded by hottrisha.
Tennis star Sania Mirza was engaged to childhood friend and Hyderabad based businessman Sohrab Mirza and the marriage was to take place after two years. The engagement is called off for what is described as "incompatibility". Now Sania will be marrying Pakistani cricketer Shoaib Malik in April 2010.
On 29 March 2010, the media in India and Pakistan reported that India’s topmost woman tennis star Sania Mirza, 23, will marry Shoaib Malik, 28, the former cricket captain of Pakistan cricket team. Their marriage will be in April, 2010, as the news was confirmed to the media by her father Imran Mirza.
Shoaib Malik too confirmed the news by tweeting on Twitter that they would get married in April 2010. As per news reports, the wedding celebrations will be held in India and Pakistan. Marriage and receptions are expected to be held in Hyderabad, India, and in Lahore, Pakistan. After the marriage, the couple will be based in Dubai.
Sania met Malik in Dubai in February while she was playing a tennis tournament there and they liked each other. Now their families are looking forward to their marriage. Sania told the Times of India, “This is the biggest day of my life. I have been in the media glare for too long, and would appreciate a little privacy at this very personal moment in my life.’’
Sania said that she hoped she would be fully fit to represent India in the upcoming Commonwealth Games and the Asian Games. “I hope to be fully fit to represent India in the Commonwealth and Asian Games that are scheduled for later this year,’’ she said.
In her career, she had reached a high of 34 in world rankings, though she is currently placed at 92. Frequently troubled by injuries, Sania’s ranking has come down after a debilitating wrist injury that forced her take a break from tennis tournaments. Treatment for her injury continues and she will test her wrist in a tennis competition this summer, though she is targeting a return to international tennis late this year.
Shoaib Malik too has pledged his support for Sania, “I fully understand what it takes to be an international sportsperson. I’ll support Sania in her career as long as she wishes to play. Representing India at the 2012 Olympics is very important to her, and I will be the proudest husband if she can win a medal for her country.’’
Known for her powerful forehand ground strokes, Sania Mirza started her tennis career in 2003. In 2004 she was honoured with the Arjuna award by the Government of India.
In July 2009, in a much-publicized lavish ceremony, Sania Mirza was engaged to Sohrab Mirza, a family friend and a business man from Hyderabad, India, whom she knew from her school days. But on 28 January 2010, the engagement to Sohrab was called off, with Sania citing ‘incompatibility’ as the reason for their split. However, her father Imran Mirza claimed that Sania, Sohrab and their respective families continue to remain on good terms.
Born in Sialkot in Pakistan, Shoaib Malik made his One-Day International cricket debut in 1999 against the West Indies and his Test Cricket debut in 2001 against Bangladesh. He was ranked second, behind his teammate Shahid Afridi, in the ICC ODI all-rounder rankings in June 2008.
Incidentally, Malik is among seven top Pakistani cricket players who are serving a one-year ban imposed by the Pakistan Cricket Board on various charges during a recent tour of Australia. Pakistan lost all the three Test Matches, five One-Day International matches, and the only Twenty20 cricket match on the tour that ended in February. However, earlier this month, the Pakistan Cricket Board gave permission to Malik to play in a domestic Twenty20 league match in Bangladesh.
Though Sania Mirza's previous engagement and the subsequent breakup with Sohrab Mirza made headlines, Malik too had linkups and breakups in the past. Malik was involved in a marriage dispute with another Indian woman Alisha with whom he reportedly exchanged marriage vows in 2002, though he has denied the marriage news, claiming he had been cheated in the relationship. However, Sania’s family has downplayed the issue and made no comment on it. Also, in 2008, Malik was dating former Miss India and Bollywood actress Sayali Bhagat.
Sayali, who made her film debut opposite Emran Hashmi in the movie ‘The Train’, had hoped to keep her relationship with Malik under wraps. But the couple was spotted together in a hotel lobby. At that time Malik was also in news when Alisha’s parents claimed that he had married their daughter. But Sayali defended Malik by saying, “That was a marriage proposal that he said no to. Those allegations have been legally proved baseless. Shoaib was always single!” Sayali and Malik had met at a store inauguration in Delhi, and she had said, “Our religion is not an issue; I am more concerned about the distance between us.”

Italians vote in regional elections on Saturday is heralded as a crucial test for Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi, and his party, while Berlusconi is considered as a liability for his party and government. In the past year, Berlusconi's wife has left him over a series of sex scandals and his party has fumbled the political process leaving them off the candidate list in Rome province. There are many upcoming small time celebrity women without political experience or brains running as Berlusconi’s candidates. Listen to the video report by Claudio Lavanga.
This banner says, "I didn't vote Berlusconi! I'm sorry! It's the shame of my nation!" Why? Corruption, sex scandals, and inefficient handling of the financial situation by Berlusconi is believed to be one of the reasons.
On 17 June 2009 Patrizia D'Addario, a 42-year-old escort and retired actress from Bari in Italy, claimed that she had been recruited twice by a common friend, who paid her 2000 Euros, in order to spend the evening, and once also the night with Berlusconi. Magistrates in Bari were investigating the case. But Silvio Berlusconi denied any knowledge of D'Addario being a paid escort, "I have never paid a woman - he declared - I have never understood what satisfaction there is if the pleasure of conquest is absent". He also accused an unspecified person of maneuvering and paying D'Addario, accusations which she vehemently denied.
Italian viewers say of this clip that Berlusconi was talking about popular Italian X-Factor presenter Simona Ventura, aka 'La Ventura', as he kept German chancellor Angela Merkel waiting at the start of the NATO summit on the French-German border near Strasbourg. The X-factor in Italy airs on Rai2 public TV, which was locked in a major ratings battle with the Italian version of Friends (Amici), which airs on one of the Mediaset channels, owned by Berlusconi.
An Italian viewer says, “When he arrives, and a few seconds before he sets foot on the ground he says, ‘CON LA VENTURA, DEVI MANTENERE I RAPPORTI’.” She is a former employee of Berlusconi, and now he wanted to bring her back. And for this Merkel had to wait!
Berlusconi had fiercely criticized Italian media for their coverage of the G20 and NATO meetings. Both in London and in Strasbourg, he behaved like a clown. Queen Elisabeth II apparently told him off for shouting "Obama" during the group photo shoot at Buckingham Palace.
The guardian.co.uk reported, “Journalists said the media tycoon-turned-conservative politician left Strasbourg after Saturday's NATO summit in a foul humour brought on by controversy over his behaviour. When he arrived for the second day of talks, he was seen to be deep in conversation on his phone and, instead of walking up the red carpet to meet the German chancellor, carried on talking.”
“Visibly perplexed, Merkel eventually gave up on her Italian counterpart and led the other dignitaries on to a footbridge over the Rhine for a meeting with the French president, Nicolas Sarkozy. Berlusconi stayed on the German side of the river, missing a group photograph and a minute's silence to honor NATO soldiers killed in action.”
Video: Italian television presenter Simona Ventura is troubled often by wardrobe malfunctions. From 2008 she was a judge in two series of Italian X-Factor, and she was also famous for her unique fashion statements during the show. In 2009, Simona announced she was leaving the show.There were reports that during the recent Silvio Berlusconi kept German Chancellor Angela Merkel waiting as he was busy talking to Simona.
A crisis, scandal or anything that stirs the public mind has the dynamic power to bring out masters out of jacks. The renowned French academic painter William Bouguereau (November 30, 1825 - August 19, 1905) is famous as a staunch traditionalist whose realistic genre paintings and mythological themes were modern interpretations of Classical subjects with a dynamic emphasis on the female body, and his almost photo-realistic style was popular with rich art patrons. As you see above his painting is morphed with Silvio Berlusconi's figure by a creative mind of 21st century.
The note below the image said, "C'è chi pensa che la Gioconda non sia in effetti il ritratto di una donna veramente esistita, bensì la raffigurazione di una divinità femminile immanente nella natura... Lo trovo che anche la mia Piergioconda abbia un che di mistico, ma al contrario di quella di Leonardo ha un sorriso molto più suadente e terreno, e sorride a noi italiani... P.S.: secondo me è sua figlia, del nostro amico padrone intendo... stessi occhi... stesso naso... stesso sorriso finto..."
In this artistic adventure, Noemi Letizia, the 18-year-old alleged lover of Silvio Berlusconi has been morphed as Monalisa, the world famous painting by Leonardo Da Vinci.
The image is inscribed with the words, "IT'S ALL PART OF THE PLAN". The note below says, "Ho notato che nessuno entra nel panico quando le cose vanno secondo i piani... anche se i piani sono mostruosi. Se un operaio muore sul lavoro o se un povero cristo viene pestato a sangue, nessuno va nel panico, perché fa tutto parte del piano. Ma quando un piccolo premier prende una satuetta in faccia... allora tutti perdono la testa!".
I now started loving the paparazzo. They are a sincere, committed lot, true to their profession, and wait for their prey after baiting! They did the baiting well for Tiger Woods, then Jesse James and they were extremely thoroughbred breeds when it came to attending on Papi – and his angelic face Noemi Letizia! Click, Chick, cluck, on they went clicking! But the photographs of the event taken by the paps were papi’s Prosecutor's Office at Rome for violation of privacy but a selection of those photos was published in El País on 4 June.
Oh, so, my dearies, it was NOT so spicy! He never had "spicy" relations with Noemi Letizia, swearing also on his sons, said so by Silvio Berlusconi on 28 May 2009. What goes around comes back! And it went around, he would have resigned immediately.
The author of the photo of this beautiful Italian girl is truly a genius in the art of photography and also a connoisseur of beauty. It is by chance that I found her in Wikipedia and found her there in the page one of the most talked about and influential, yet controversial, European politicians. And the lead there leads me here to Flickr. The author states, “66ème Festival du Cinéma de Venise (Mostra), 8ème jour (08/09/2009) - Noémie Laetizia, la call girl de Silvio Berlusconi, quittant le lido entourée d'une armée de garde du corps !.
I do not understand what is written there, possibly in Italian. Any way I think that it must be something glorifying the owner of this gorgeous face. So, I add it here. Well, anyone there who can translate it for me?

In this video, The Insider’s Chris Jacobs interviews Michelle "Bombshell" McGee's ex-husband Shane Modica, owner of Lucky's Tattoo Parlor in San Diego. He says that he believes Michelle was involved with Jesse James since May 2009.
Shane Modica says (excerpts), "According to [Michelle McGee], [Sandra Bullock and Jesse James] had this big thing going on where they were going to announce their divorce on a certain timeline and she was going to be the next woman… We had problems during our marriage because of [her obsession with Jesse James… Our picture is sitting there taped on her mirror, and I looked it and kind of ‘double-taked’ and noticed there was something over my face and I looked closer, and it’s a picture of Jesse James, his head cut out [and] pasted over my face… I was like, really, are you serious? And she laughed it off thinking it was funny and said, 'Its not a big deal, [I] was just doing it as a joke -- he’s fat, he’s ugly, he doesn’t have any real tattoos, he’s old, and all that stuff.”
Shane tells that he does not believe that Michelle is remorseful, "I know how she works, and it was either end up with Jesse or live that lifestyle and still has the money and the fame, or she was going to make money off this one way or another.”
Since Michelle McGee came forward with her alleged relationship with James on March 17, two other women with tattoos have come forward claiming alleged sexual relationships with Jesse James. And on March 25, 2010, PEOPLE reported "A Fourth Woman Alleges Affair with Jesse James". She is being represented by celebrity lawyer Gloria Allred, the same lawyer representing a woman who claims to have had an affair with Tiger Woods.
Allred released a statement on the years-long relationship with James, and it says, "I represent a beautiful model and business woman. [James] pursued her and he had strong feelings for her. She is in the process of trying to decide if she will come forward. She has proof of their relationship, including hundreds of texts, emails and photos. The relationship just ended recently after the scandal broke."
According to another report, an employee of James' told People that ‘the tattooed biker is keeping to himself right now trying to put on a brave face to show his kids that he's fine’. Photographers have been camping outside James’ shop ‘West Coast Choppers’ in Long Beach, CA, and TMZ reported that one paparazzo ‘apparently got more than he bargained for when he came head to head with the Monster Garage star’.
Meanwhile there are reports claiming that Sandra Bullock would not attend the Kids Choice Awards, even though she was nominated for the Favorite Movie Actress award.
The Twilight star Robert Pattinson, 23, is the latest attraction at Madame Tussauds Waxworks, London. His figure is recreated with his trademark messy hairstyle and his rugged dress style with an open-collared shirt and skinny trousers at a cost of £150,000. A matching figure of Pattinson was planned at Madame Tussauds's New York museum too. The figure of the British heartthrob was unveiled in March to coincide with the release of his latest film ‘Remember Me’ directed by Allen Coulter.
Fans can now join Pattinson in his own special VIP area, where he is in good company with a host of other top celebrities including Jonny Depp, Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt and fashion icons like Kate Moss. A Madame Tussauds PR Manager Liz Edwards said, "R-Pattz is one of the hottest celebs on the planet. We are delighted to be able to give them the chance to cozy up with their idol here at Madame Tussauds and judging by the reactions of the first to meet him here this morning he is set to top our 'most kissed list of celebrities' very quickly!"
The Twilight sequel ‘The Twilight Saga: New Moon’ (2009) has been a hugely successful film, which cost just $50 million to make, but it made gross box office revenue of $707 million. The film features the love affair between the 17-year-old schoolgirl heroine Bella Swan (Kirsten Stewart) and a 109-year-old vampire Edward Cullen (Robert Pattinson). A rival lover, who is a wolf, is played by Taylor Lautner. The film’s success has been attributed to the charms of Pattinson to a great extent. He was relatively unknown as recently as a year ago, but now he is mobbed by female fans wherever he goes.

The popular X-Factor judge Cheryl Cole is eying for the American version of the show, a site quoted the singer said American audiences would not know who she was. She also told Radio 1 presenter Fearne Cotton that she would get a real buzz' out of doing the show, adding “It's kind of really scary, you know? Why would they give a beep what I thought? I think I always feel like that. They don't know me out there and I've got this weird accent and they'd be a bit like, 'what?'… I love the thought of it and I would absolutely love to do it. The talent out there is phenomenal so I would get an absolute buzz out of doing it – but whether or not they would buzz off me is a different thing.''

Photo: Swedish model Elin Nordegren, the then fiancée of American golfer Tiger Woods, on the USS George Washington (CVN 73) in the Arabian Gulf on 4 March 2003.
Elin Nordegren, wife of professional golfer Tiger Woods, was born in Stockholm, Sweden. Nordegren worked on odd jobs to finance her studies. She started modeling in 2000, and appeared on the cover of Cafe Sport magazine in the summer of 2000.
Nordegren took a job in a Stockholm clothing store, Champagne, where she met Mia Parnevik, wife of Swedish golfer Jesper Parnevik, who hired Nordegren as the nanny to their children. The job required her to move to U.S.A. She was introduced to Woods during the 2001 British Open, as he had been asking for a year to be introduced to Nordegren, who was seeing someone else at the time. In November 2003, Woods and Nordegren attended the Presidents Cup tournament in South Africa and became officially engaged.
They were married in October 2004 in Barbados. The guests who attended the marriage included Oprah Winfrey, Michael Jordan, Charles Barkley and Bill Gates.
In December 2009, her marriage to Woods was the subject of extensive media coverage after Woods admitted to infidelity, which had been revealed following his vehicle accident near the family's Florida home.
As the 32-year-old Joslyn James, one of the alleged 19 mistresses Tiger Woods had affairs with, vowed to unveil more sex texts received from the disgraced golfer, his wife Elin, mother of Wood's two kids, has not been seen at their residence for several days, according to TMZ.com.
The Daily Telegraph quoted James as saying, "I just wanted the public to know and the truth to be out there for me to have people see what I was being told and not just judge me for being with a married guy," and added, "If I would have known everything that was going on, and wasn't being lied to, I would have done things differently."
James is reported to have told the New York Daily News, "There were certain things about our relationship that were not conventional. There were a couple situations when he was a bit more aggressive than usual."
Tiger Woods' wife Elin Nordegren has disappeared as Joslyn James vowed to post more racy text messages from Woods, news reports say. The former porn star Joslyn James said she is ready to unwrap more dirt on the golfer with whom she allegedly had a three-year affair. James has set up a website where Woods' alleged sex texts can be read and she would soon post some of the more than 1,000 text messages.
Till a few days ago, you could get hardly any details about Michelle "Bombshell" McGee, the alleged mistress of Sandra Bullock’s husband Jesse James. But now, the internet is full of her. I just Googled her name and got an astonishing 2,110,000 search results for Michelle "Bombshell" McGee.
Similarly, by searching Flickr I could get just one photo of her which I posted in this blog. Look at the above photo posted on Flickr on April 25, 2009. The notes on it read, "Just a quick caveat about myself. I am a professional, paid model. Though I enjoy doing free, unfortunately I need to support my ridiculously expensive materialistic necessities, namely my two children."
Michelle Bombshell McGee is seemingly active on social networking sites, and even adult sites, as the search results show. Some of her profiles are similar. The pictures, videos and details confirm as they belong to the same person. Here below are some more details about her.
Most likely Michelle McGee is a student doing her masters in Bio Technology, and she already has a BS in biology. Details show she is a French Canadian, raised in Montreal, has lived in France and she speaks French. McGee has two children as you can find in the photo inscription above. And the other details are:
Marriage Status: Single
Sexual orientation: Heterosexual
Zodiac sign: Capricorn
Eye Color: Blue
Hair Color: Black
Height: 5 feet 5 inches
Her profession as mentioned in the photo page shows that she is a tattoo model, but other sources allege that she is stripper and other questionable professions. She came into limelight, after reports of her claim that she is the mistress of Jesse James and she has been having an affair with him for eleven months.
Video: People Magazine's Senior Editor Kate Coyne discusses with Erica Hill about Jesse James' apology to his wife, Sandra Bullock, and his children for his affair with tattoo model Michelle "Bombshell" McGee. Although the alleged relationship has been going on for quite some time, Coyne says Sandra had no inkling about it. In support of her views, she quotes how passionately Sandra Bullock praised her husband during the Oscar Awards, Golden Globes, etc.
Photo: Lady Gaga performs at the Air Canada Center in Toronto on November 28th, 2009, on the second night of her headlining tour, in support of her second album, 'The Fame Monster'. Gaga is at her piano, the same piano that she performed with, set on fire, and smashed whiskey bottles against, during the American Music Awards.
Music producer and songwriter Rob Fusari has filed a $30.5 million lawsuit against Lady Gaga's production company Mermaid Music LLC on account of unpaid revenues and royalties, claiming that he was entitled to a 20 per cent share of its earnings. He also claimed his protégé and former girlfriend ditched him as her career soared, according to reports from various sources. Lady Gaga's lawyer Charles Ortner described the agreement with Fusari as ‘unlawful’.
Lady Gaga's debut album, The Fame was co-produced by Fusari and has four sides on the record, including ‘Paparazzi’, ‘Beautiful, Dirty, Rich’, ‘Brown Eyes’ and ‘Disco Heaven’. The European release of The Fame also includes the songs ‘Retro, Dance, Freak’ and ‘Again Again’.
Fusari had credits on such hits as Will Smith's ‘Wild, Wild West’ and Destiny's Child's ‘Bootylicious, when a friend introduced him in March 2006 to Lady Gaga, then known by her real name, Stefani Germanotta, according to his lawsuit. After initial hesitation, he realized she had star potential after hearing her play in his Parsippany, New Jersey, studio, the suit said. He spent the next several months working with her every day and ‘radically reshaping her approach,’ persuading her to drop rock riffs for dance beats, it said.
"All business is personal," said the lawsuit, filed on Wednesday in a Manhattan state court. As they co-wrote songs that would appear on her debut album, The Fame, he transformed Germanotta into Lady Gaga, a name adapted from Queen's ‘Radio Ga Ga,’ the lawsuit said.
But Lady Gaga has claimed that she came up with the name around 2004 "but Gaga's always been who I am… I was Gaga from the time that I was 19 through my first record deal," the 23-year-old singer said. "I always dressed like that before people knew me as Lady Gaga. I was always that way... I stuck out like a sore thumb."
The lawsuit claimed, Lady Gaga and Fusari's relationship turned romantic and then it became a business partnership in May 2006, when they created a joint venture, ‘Team Love Child LLC’ to promote her career, with 20 per cent share for Fusari. He introduced Lady Gaga to a record executive who led her to Universal Music Group's Interscope Records, which released ‘The Fame’ in 2008. The album has sold more than 3 million copies in the United States and Fusari has a producing credit.
But, the lawsuit said, their personal and business relationship had gone sour and he has been denied the 20 per cent share of song royalties, 15 per cent of merchandising revenue and other dues. However, he acknowledges payment around $611,000, but says that is not his full share.
‘The Fame’ reached #1 in Canada, Austria, Germany and Ireland and topped the Billboard Top Electronic Albums chart. Its first two singles ‘Just Dance’ and ‘Poker Face became international #1 hits, topping the Hot 100 in the United States as well as other countries.
Lady Gaga was nominated for nine awards at the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards, including Video of the Year, Best New Artist, Best Female Video and Best Pop Video for ‘Poker Face’ and Best Direction, Best Editing, Best Special Effects, Best Cinematography and Best Art Direction for ‘Paparazzi’. Out of these, she won the award for Best New Artist, while her single ‘Paparazzi’ won two awards for Best Art Direction and Best Special Effects.
In October 2009, Gaga won Billboard magazine's Rising Star of 2009 award. Also, she was named chief creative officer for a line of imaging products for Polaroid at the Consumer Electronics Show on January 7, 2010 where she commented that she would create fashion, technology and photography products, and said, "I'm working on bringing the instant film camera back as part of the future."
Lady Gaga received her first Grammy Award at the 52nd Grammy Awards on January 31, 2010. She was nominated for Song of the Year, Record of the Year, and Best Dance Recording for her single ‘Poker Face’, winning the last three awards. Also, ‘The Fame’ had been nominated for Album of the Year and won the Grammy for Best Electronic/Dance Album.
On March 15, 2010, Billboard announced ‘Telephone’ the second single from ‘The Fame Monster’ reached #1 on the Pop songs chart, thus not only becoming Gaga's sixth #1 on the chart, but her sixth consecutive #1, making Lady Gaga the only artist in history to achieve this record. It also became the sixth #1 for the track's featured artist Beyoncé, the two singers being tied for the most #1 ratings, since the Nielsen BDS-based radio airplay chart was launched in 1992. Also they join Mariah Carey, who tallied six chart toppers between 1993 and 2005.

The marriage of Jesse James and Oscar-winner Sandra Bullock is on the rocks, as Jesse James' alleged mistress claimed that she had "month-long" affairs with him. Watch this video for details.
Apparently Tiger Woods is available at discount prices. Who knew?, originally uploaded by arvindgrover.
'Tiger Woods at discount prices', reads an announcement board in a cloth store, most probably in Dubai.
US professional Golfer Tiger Woods announced on December 3, 2006 that he would develop his first golf course in the United Arab Emirates through his golf course design company, Tiger Woods Design. The planned golf resort, ‘The Tiger Woods Dubai’ will cover 580 acres (2.35 squire km) par-72 course named Al Ruwaya, a 60,000-square-foot (5,600 squire meters) clubhouse, a golf academy, 320 exclusive villas and a boutique hotel with 80 suites.The Tiger Woods Dubai is a joint venture between Woods and Tatweer, a subsidiary company of the Dubai government-owned Dubai Holding. Woods chose Dubai because he was excited about the ‘challenge of transforming a desert terrain into a world-class golf course’, according to reports. The project was scheduled to be finished in late 2009 at Dubailand, the region's largest tourism and leisure project. However, economic difficulties following the debt crisis in Dubai in late 2009 have delayed the completion of the project.

In December 2009, Elin Nordegren's marriage to Woods was the subject of extensive media coverage after Woods admitted to infidelity, which had been revealed following his vehicle accident near his Florida home. She is presently enrolled as a student at Rollins College in Winter Park, Florida, where she is working towards a degree in psychology.
