Elin Nordegren is dating a billionaire. The ex-wife of Tiger Woods is having a quiet relationship with coal magnate Chris Cline, a Florida neighbor who is 20 years her senior. The two have kept their dating well under the paparazzi radar until recently, reports Fox News on Tuesday, March 12.
Elin Nordegren, 33, is dating a billionaire, which could come in handy even though she has millions of her own, through a settlement with Tiger Woods, the father of her children. The Swedish former model used money from her divorce to buy an ageing mansion in North Palm Beach and have it torn down and re-built, thus beautifying the neighborhood of Seminole Landing. Then she got to know a few neighbors. An advantage of a really rich neighborhood is that really rich people live there.
One neighbor is Chris Cline, 53. He is reported to have more than a billion in family money gleaned from West Virginia coal. “Elin and Chris have been dating since the holidays,” a source close to the couple has reported, even though the fact has remained out of the tabloids.
Chris Cline and Elin Nordegren both make a practice of staying out of the spotlight. It will be interesting to see how well their efforts work, now that the paparazzi have discovered their relationship. Is it serious? Is it just a casual friendship? No one yet knows. But soon everyone will.
