Tiger Woods’ ex-wife Elin Nordegren is single again after splitting with her latest billionaire boyfriend. Elin can’t seem to keep a man in her life for any substantial length of time, though she has no problem attracting wealthy men. According to Radar Online on Aug. 16, Elin and coal magnate Christopher Cline dated for over a year before drifting apart.
The twice-divorced Cline whose mansion is situated next door to Elin’s estate in North Palm Beach, Fla., has four children from his previous wives. However, despite the proximity, an insider says that Elin, 34 and Chris, 56 apparently didn’t spend enough time with each other. Cline travels frequently in connection with his business, Foresight Energy, which controls over 3 billion tons of coal reserves in the United States.
Things looked promising at first for Elin and Chris. He reportedly traveled to Sweden with Elin to meet her family. Elin and Chris even went on double-dates with Elin’s ex-husband, Tiger Woods and his new girlfriend, Olympic skiier Lindsey Vonn. Unfortunately, like Elin’s other relationships since divorcing Tiger Woods, her relationship with Chris Cline did not last. According to Us magazine on Aug. 16, the two have now broken up.
Prior to dating Cline, Elin Nordegren was romantically linked to Swedish hockey player Douglas Murray. But that relationship soon fizzled out. Before that Elin dated billionaire investment banker Jamie Dingman. They’d been dating for several months before the media found out. At one point, it was rumored that Elin and Jamie Dingman were taking their relationship to the next level and were reportedly making wedding plans.
But in the end those plans fell through. Elin and Jamie ended their relationship on a cordial note, just as quietly as it began. The media was the last to know. Now Elin has three failed relationships in her past, not counting her divorce from Tiger Woods.
In a recent interview, Elin told People magazine her relationship with Tiger Woods is centered around the children. She calls Tiger a great father and says they are really doing well, adding that she has moved on and is really in a good place now. Tiger and Elin see each other regularly in connection with the children since they only live a 25 minute drive apart.
On Aug. 15, New York Post celebrity column, Page Six reported that the newly single Elin Nordegren is currently in the Hamptons for a low-key weekend with her girlfriends. She was seen walking around with friends in Bridgehampton Friday afternoon, and is looking forward to “going to the beach, shopping and going to restaurants.”
