Who is Tiger Woods’ Ex Wife? All About Elin Nordegren

Who is Tiger Woods’ Ex Wife? All About Elin Nordegren

When sports fans hear the name of Elin Nordegren, they probably think of her simply as Tiger Woods’ ex-wife and she is that, of course. But there is more to Nordegren than simply being a footnote to Woods’ life. During their marriage, Woods was one of the sports world’s most recognizable people. Woods became incredibly rich from his golf winnings and sponsors.

While he was out playing golf, Nordegren raised their children, Sam and Charlie. Of course, the world knows that they divorced in 2010 after word of Woods’ infidelities spread. Woods and Nordegren, though, have managed to patch things up enough that they can be friends while co-parenting their kids.

Nordegren herself is a child of divorce with her parents splitting up when she was 7 years old. But Elin did spend time with both parents on an equal scale. She was able to learn about each parent’s good qualities when around them.

Elin Nordegren Felt Pain of Divorce From Parents

“Despite the split, I feel like the base was still there,” Nordegren told People. “My mom showed me that it is possible to be on your own, be a mother, and still pursue your career. My father moved to Germany in 1997, and my sister and I went with him for a year to study German and English. We did 11th grade at John F. Kennedy School in Berlin.”

Who is Nordegren, a Swedish model, and nanny who has an identical twin sister? She was born on January 1, 1980, in Stockholm, Sweden. Elin’s identical twin’s name is Josefin, plus she has a brother named Axel.

She met Woods after taking on a job with PGA golfer Jesper Parnevik’s family. Nordegren was the au pair for Parnevik, moving to the United States full-time to live here. Her first interaction with Woods came in 2001 during the Open Championship. Eventually, they got married in October 2004 and lived in Florida.

Once media scrutiny about Woods’ off-course behavior started rising in 2009, it led to serious problems between Nordegren and Woods. Woods admitted to his infidelity, which led to their divorce in 2010. Nordegren received $100 million in the divorce settlement.

“I’ve been through hell,” Nordegren said at the time in an interview with People. “It’s hard to think you have this life, and then all of a sudden — was it a lie? You’re struggling because it wasn’t real. But I survived. It was hard, but it didn’t kill me.”

Tiger Woods’ Ex Wife Put Down $12M On House

Tiger Woods’ ex-wife reportedly spent $12 million on getting a Florida mansion. But home construction workers felt like it would be a better deal if the old house was demolished. This way, they could build a house that fits Florida hurricane mandates.

Nordegren went to college and graduated with a degree in psychology in 2014. She has had a couple of relationships since her divorce was finalized. At one time, Nordegren dated Jamie Dingman, a financier. Then, she started dating West Virginia coal billionaire Chris Cline for four years. Now, Nordegren is the partner of former NFL player Jordan Cameron. She has given birth to two children while with Cameron.

Nordegren loves to travel, having visited all of the European countries numerous times with her family.
