Elin Nordegren, Tiger Woods’ Ex-Wife, Dating Billionaire Chris Cline
Elin Nordegren, ex of golfer Tiger Woods, is currently dating billionaire coal tycoon Chris Cline, who lives down the street from her North Palm Beach, Fla., home.
“Elin and Chris have been dating since the holidays,” a source told Page Six.
Cline, 53, is worth a reported $1.2 billion, more than Nordegren’s wealthy professional athlete ex-husband. Although he tends to stay out of the press, last year an attempted extortion plot by an aspiring actor who targeted Harvey Weinstein and Buffalo Sabres owner Terry Pegula went after Cline as well. The coal magnate, who owns a yacht named Mine Games, also received some attention when he hosted a Mitt Romney fundraising event in September. Twice married, Cline is a father to four children.
Nordegren has been divorced from Woods since 2010, after news of his cheating scandal broke. In the process of making a new life for herself, she had the Seminole Landing house they had lived in together demolished so that she could have a new home built on the property. Nordegren, 33, and Woods, 37, seem to be reconciling as co-parents in recent days, however, as the two were spotted together at one of their children’s sporting events.
Woods, who performed admirably at the WGC Cadillac Championship at Doral last week, has been linked to Olympic skier Lindsey Vonn. When Vonn sustained serious knee injuries at a competition in Austria, Woods sent his private jet to retrieve her.
