Don’t expect beleaguered wife Elin Nordegren to appear anywhere near Augusta National Golf Course this week, regardless of Tiger Woods’ Masters performance.

“Tiger’s appearance at the Masters is not about her,” said one source close to the couple. “It’s about Tiger getting back to golf. For her to show up — that would be counterproductive.”

Another source points out that although Elin has been at the 18th green for many of Tiger’s wins, she’s never greeted her husband at the Masters.

“Elin has not even been the person on the 18th green at the Masters — it’s always been one of his parents,” said the source. “Unless there’s a massive change in plans, you aren’t going to see her there. They’re working on their marriage in private, not in public.”

James reportedly leaves rehab Jesse James publicists only recently confirmed that James was in a rehab facility (specifically for what they wouldn’t, say), and now comes reports that James has left rehab.

According to Star magazine, James quietly checked out of the Sierra Tucson treatment center days ago, and has been staying with a friend.

Weekend box office sets Easter record Not only did “Clash of the Titans” win the weekend box office, as expected, but it also set an Easter weekend record.

The 3-D film made $61.4 million over the holiday weekend, blowing away “Scary Movie 4,” which held the Easter Weekend No. 1 spot since its $40.2 million opening in 2006.

As for No. 2—no surprises there. Tyler Perry’s “Why Did I Get Married Too?” brought in $30.1 million, and Miley Cyrus’ “The Last Song” did quite well despite a critical flogging; it grabbed the No. 3 spot with $29.2 million.
