Tiger Woods’ ex-wife Elin Nordegren is on the loose again after reports that she and her boyfriend Jamie Dingman have ended their relationship. Elin apparently wants more time to herself.
The former Swedish model, 31, reportedly started dating Dingman, the son of wealthy New York City investor Michael Dingman, last year.
Jaime is said to be a billionaire in his own right, according to the New York Post. Jamie works for his father and is said to have a role overseeing investments in China for his father’s off-shore investment company.
At the time news about their relationship broke, the two had been dating for months, and so-called sources said the couple were deeply infatuated with each other.
While they were dating, however, reports surfaced that Dingman had once also dated Rachel Uchitel, the club manager and party girl who was allegedly one of Tiger Woods’ mistresses.
Whether that played a role in their demise is unknown. Dingman and Nordegren broke off their relationship in January, a friend of hers told People.
“She says Jamie’s a great guy, and they’re still friends, but I think it was just too early [after the divorce] for her to get serious with anyone,” says the friend.
Nordegren continues to attend college part-time studying psychology. Her new $20 million ocean-front home is under construction, which she shares with her two children by Woods.
The golfer’s secret life allegedly bedding prostitutes, porn stars, party girls and cocktail waitresses was exposed in news reports in Nov 2009. The scandal exploded in a public when he infamously wrecked his SUV in his driveway the morning after Thanksgiving Day.
Despite Tiger’s effort to seek therapy, the marriage unraveled and Elin reportedly walked away with a $100 million divorce settlement.
