Elin Nordegren gave her first interview since the Tiger Woods sex scandal broke and it went over huge, with People Magazine reporting 2 million copies sold, that’s nearly 600,000 more copies than their 1.4 million average.
How popular was the interview? Editors raised the cost per copy and then printed extra copies, the last time they did that was for the Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt cover back in August 2008, that issue sold 2.5 million copies.
According to PopEater:
“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.”
One question not answered in the interview was exactly how much Nordegren received in her divorce settlement. Woods is reportedly worth more than $600 million and estimates put her share at around $100 million.
