(NORTH PALM BEACH, Fla.) — Tiger Woods may be dating Lindsey Vonn, but his ex-wife, Elin Nordegren, 33, may have snagged a billionaire.
Us Weekly and the New York Post are linking Nordegren to Chris Cline, her neighbor in North Palm Beach, Fla. He owns a 34,000-square-foot, ocean-front mansion next to the $12 million mansion Nordegren has been renovating.
According to Forbes, the 53-year-old Cline is the owner of coal producer Foresight Energy and is worth a reported $1.2 billion. A native of West Virginia, Cline comes from a coal-mining family — his grandfather once mined coal and his father bought out a mining partner’s share for $500,000 and gave it to Cline when he was 21, according to Forbes.
Nordegren last dated financier Jamie Dingman, the son of billionaire Michael Dingman. They broke off their relationship in January 2012, according to People.
Nordegren and Woods divorced in 2010 after he confessed to multiple affairs.
Woods recently announced that he is in a relationship with Olympic skier Lindsey Vonn.
