The impact of curvature divergences on physical observers in a black hole space-time which, nonetheless, is geodesically complete is investigated. This space-time is an exact solution of certain extensions of General Relativity coupled to Maxwell's electrodynamics and, roughly speaking, consists on two Reissner-Nordstr\"{o}m (or Schwarzschild or Minkowski) geometries connected by a spherical wormhole near the center. We find that, despite the existence of infinite tidal forces, causal contact…

Geodesic completeness is typically regarded as a basic criterion to determine whether a given spacetime is regular or singular. However, the principle of general covariance does not privilege any
Palatini wormholes and energy conditions from the prism of general relativity
TLDR
This paper considers several wormhole spacetimes that arise directly from gravitational actions including additional terms resulting from contractions of the Ricci tensor with the metric, and which are formulated assuming independence between metric and connection (Palatini approach).

Regular phantom black holes.
TLDR
It looks possible that the Universe has originated in a phantom-dominated collapse in another universe, with KS expansion and isotropization after crossing the horizon, and possible generalizations include k-essence type scalar fields (with a potential) and scalar-tensor gravity.
