While celebrity cheating scandals have sadly become par for the course, in 2009, the world was shocked to learn that golf champ Tiger Woods was a serial cheater who admitted to having numerous affairs while married to Elin Nordegren.
Reports that Tiger Woods had cheated with upward of 120 women left Elin Nordegren “totally devastated,” sources revealed to People in 2010.
In fact, she was so hurt by the scandal that she stayed silent on the topic for years. At the time, there were questions about whether Nordegren’s divorce settlement required her to stay mum about the couple’s history, but apparently that wasn’t the case.
The Daily Mail reported that Nordegren bought the original property for $12 million, but had the house demolished and rebuilt because it was “riddled with rot.”
The Daily Mail also reported that the charitable mom-of-two asked Habitat for Humanity if they wanted to salvage anything from the property before it was torn down.
It seems Nordegren has quite the fondness for the finer things in life. She was linked to billionaire and coal tycoon Chris Cline. The on-again, off-again couple, who split in 2014 after a year of dating, were spotted smacking lips on the ski slopes in St. Moritz, Switzerland in March 2016.
Fun fact: Cline was worth $1.8 billion and owned multiple coal mines and a luxury yacht named Mine Games.
Tiger Woods, a serial cheater who admitted he had affairs with numerous women while married to Elin Nordegren, told Time magazine that his ex-wife is one of his “best friends.” He elaborated on that when he appeared as a guest on “The Late Show” in 2016 (via HuffPost), and host Stephen Colbert questioned how that was possible considering, well, you know, how it ended. “It becomes two simple things, okay? We have Sam and we have Charlie. And we love them so much that we are going to whatever it takes to make that work. That’s how it happened,” Woods told Colbert.
