Elin Nordegren Befriends Lindsay Vonn

By: Lindsay McCane - April 24, 2014

You would think that Tiger Woods’ ex-wife Elin Nordegren would harbor nothing but hostility towards his current girlfriend Lindsay Vonn.

However, sources have revealed to US Weekly that the two women have become unlikely friends.

“After meeting her, she found she actually liked her,” the source said of Nordegren. The source explained that Nordegren wanted to get to know Vonn because she knew that she would be spending a lot of time with her children.

“You’d think it would be weird, but Elin loves Lindsey and they talk all the time,” the source continued. “Elin likes that Lindsey is a strong woman.”

Actually, Tiger, Elin, Lindsay, and the children all went on a recent vacation together, and the women were seen acting like they were best friends and even sneaking away to have drinks together.

“Lindsey is really good for Tiger. She’s strong, opinionated, and keeps him in line,” the source added. “Elin found that they are very similar and have a lot in common. They laugh and talk like they have been girlfriends forever.”

Tiger and Elin officially divorced in 2010, after he revealed that he had cheated on her with more than a dozen women. However, it wasn’t until 2013 that he and Lindsay went public with their relationship.

Lindsay explained to David Letterman, at the time, that their similarities drew them together. “We’re athletes, so I guess we have something in common there. We met at his charity event in Vegas, Tiger Jam, and, yeah, we were friends for a long time,” she told Letterman in November 2013. “I don’t know…we just kind of relate really well to one another.”

    I just want to know why the author thinks Elin should have ill feelings towards Lindsay? He didn’t cheat on her with LV, she’s just the woman he ended up with after his divorce. Maybe she’s projecting how she would feel into her article?…lol

      I think you are the smartest person on here. I agree 100%. Those were my thoughts as soon as I saw the first paragraph. Poor reporting, fishing for sensation.

    Elin has more class than Tiger can ever buy with money. Why should she care who he is dating? Another story making a big to do about nothing. All of this is coming from US Weekly. Just another rag magazine.

    There is no reason for Elin to hate Lindsey, she is spending time with her kids, she is in Tigers life, this how adults act.

  • jeffkrason

    This actually the way it should be when kids are involved. The fact that they get along is a good thing! The real story should be why people that are divorced walk around like the entire world needs to know how much they can’t stand their ex and how they were so wronged. Get over it move on grow up, no one gives a sh&% about your drama!
