Elin Nordegren, Tiger’s Ex, Back On The Market After Splitting With Billionaire BoyfriendBy: Pam Wright - August 17, 2014
Looks like Elin Nordegren is back on the market again.
Tiger Woods’ ex-wife reportedly broke up with her billionaire boyfriend, 56-year-old coal tycoon Chris Cline, after one year together. Their courtship marked the first serious relationship for the Swedish model since divorcing the pro-golfer in 2010, a source told Us Weekly.
Friends say the two split after they “drifted apart.”
“They didn’t spend enough time together. He has a thriving business and has been traveling a lot,” a source told Page Six.
Following the split, Nordegren headed to the Hampton’s with some girlfriends with plans to hang out on the beach, go shopping and dine out.
Woods and Nordegren divorced after the golfer reportedly indulged in a series of extra-marital affairs.
Despite the divorce, Woods and Nordegren enjoy an amicable relationship based on their mutual love for their children — daughter Sam, six, and son Charlie, five.
“My relationship with Tiger is centered around our children and we are doing really good — we really are — and I am so happy that this is the case. He is a great father,” she told People in May.
That’s not to say their divorce didn’t leave some resentment for 34-year-old Nordegren, especially immediately following the news of his infidelity. However, the newly-single beauty says working through their difficulties to arrive at a working relationship was a necessity for the kids’ sake.
“In the beginning, you tamp down the animosity for the kids’ sake,” she says. “I’m not going to deny that I went through the wringer. But I don’t think I doubted we’d end up here. That was always my dream, that the kids can have two loving parents that show respect for each other. And I feel that’s what they have.”
