APOLOGY/CORRECTION: Elin Nordegren Did Not Sue Irish Newspaper

01/08/2010 AT 08:00 AM EST

PEOPLE.com regrets a reporting error that appeared in the story “Five Things You Didn't Know About Elin Nordegren," originally published on Dec. 3.

Item No. 4 in the story described a lawsuit that Tiger Woods and his wife, Elin Nordegren, filed after rumors circulated that Nordegren, a former model, had posed nude for photos. When those rumors were repeated in print by an Irish publication, the couple sued and were awarded $183,250 in 2006.

PEOPLE.com reported in error that the Irish publication in question was The Irish Times newspaper. In fact, the publication was a magazine with no connection whatsoever to The Irish Times. PEOPLE.com has corrected the information in our story, and apologizes to The Irish Times for the error.
