Things are said to be heating up between Swedish model Elin Nordegren and her beau, billionaire coal magnate Chris Cline.
Tiger Woods’ ex-wife Elin Nordegren has been out of the spotlight for a few years following the couple's very high-profile divorce. Recently though reports have surfaced that she has finally managed to move on from her ex-husband’s betrayal and things are heating up between her and billionaire coal magnate Chris Cline.
Elin Nordegren has moved on from her heartbreak with coal magnate Chris Cline
The pair have been dating for over a year now, and are in fact neighbours. The couple live next door to one another in the very affluent area of North Palm Beach in Florida, where Nordegren just finished renovating the home she shares with her two children by Woods, Charlie, 4, and Sam, 6.
The coal magnate, who has amassed a fortune of over $1.5 billion mining coal, has bought a second home next to the Swedish ex-nanny. A source told Page Six, “He and Elin have their own private enclave. They couldn’t be happier.” How the other half live, eh?
Cline has four children of his own, and is said to have plenty in common with Nordegren, including their interest in philanthropy and leading a quiet life away from the press. It’s claimed that Cline has already traveled to Sweden with Elin to meet her family back home. Nordegren’s divorce from Woods was finalised with 2010, when she received an enormous $100 million settlement from her straying spouse. The pair had been married for nearly six years and had separated after allegations of Woods’ numerous infidelities began to surface.
Shortly after the divorce Nordegren purchased her 17,000 square foot home for a bargain price of $12.2million. The daughter of a Swedish politician, 34 year old Nordegren was born in Stockholm. Her radio journalist father, Thomas Nordegren, once served in Washington D.C. as a bureau chief. She began modelling in 2000, appearing on Cafe Sport magazine’s cover that summer.
While working in Stockholm clothes store, Champagne, she met the wife of Swedish golfer Jesper Parnevik, Mia, who hired her as a nanny. The pair introduced Nordegren to Woods in 2001 at the Open Championship. After Woods and Nordegren’s separation Parnevik was quoted as saying, “I’m kind of filled with sorrow for Elin since me and wife wife are at fault for hooking her up with him, and we probably thought he was a better guy that he is.” It’s true that there’s been a lot heartbreak for Elin, but there’s also been $100 million.
Elin and Tiger's girlfriend Lindsay are said to get along well
Nordegren has recently been snapped spending time with Woods and his current girlfriend, Lindsey Vonn, as they watched three year old Charlie play baseball. It’s reported that Nordegren gets on well with Vonn and the pair have become fast friends. Elin allegedly likes Lindsey, who she thinks is a ‘strong woman’, according to Us Weekly.
