Guess she didn’t go back to black… Despite rumors of a reunion with her swirly ex-hubby Tiger Woods, word around their pricy subdivision is Elin is actually dating an older billionaire coal tycoon who happens to be a Mitt Romney lover. Yuck.
Via Page Six reports:
Tiger Woods’ ex-wife, Elin Nordegren, is quietly dating her older Florida neighbor, billionaire coal magnate Chris Cline, sources exclusively tell us. Nordegren, 33, the Swedish former model, and Cline, 53, both have mansions in the exclusive North Palm Beach oceanfront community of Seminole Landing, where Nordegren had her home bulldozed and rebuilt after splitting with Woods. “Elin and Chris have been dating since the holidays,” a source tells Page Six. Cline, a West Virginia native worth a reported $1.2 billion, stays far from the spotlight, but he did make headlines last year when he was the victim of a bizarre attempted extortion plot by an aspiring actor against targets including movie mogul Harvey Weinstein, Groupon co-founder Eric Lefkofsky and Buffalo Sabres owner Terry Pegula. The plot allegedly involved a letter sent to Cline that threatened the coal tycoon’s family unless he gave over $13 million. A father of four, Cline’s been married twice, and his most recent marriage ended in divorce in 2000. Cline, who owns a luxury yacht called Mine Games, reportedly hosted a Mitt Romney fund-raising reception at his home in September. Nordegren had the Seminole Landing house she shared with Woods leveled so she could erect a brand-new home on the site. Last weekend, however, the beautiful blonde seemed to be Woods’ lucky charm at the WGC-Cadillac Championship. Weeks after they were photographed together, Woods won the tournament amid talk of his best play in years. Meanwhile, reports have said that Woods’ relationship has been heating up with Olympic skier Lindsey Vonn. But sources tell us the pair are not dating exclusively. A rep for Cline had no comment.
Well, regardless of who she ends up with we know Elin is gonna be aight. We ain’t sayin she’s a gold-digger but she definitely ain’t messin’ with no broke mens…
