Elin Nordegren, 31, who was humiliated last year by her ex-husband Tiger Woods’ numerous mistresses and affairs, has finally found happiness in a new man. Swedish-born Nordegren has been dating New York marketing executive, Jamie Dingman, for months, the New York Post is reporting.
According to the New York Post’s Page Six column Mr Dingman, the son of billionaire Michael Dingman, spent time with Miss Nordegren in Florida and Sweden recently. They reportedly met at a Red Cross Ball in Florida and were photographed near Miss Nordegren’s home in Sweden this week.
On Tuesday, the two were spotted outside Elin’s home, which she and Tiger purchased together back in 2005. The home is on the market for $20 million. Saying their goodbyes, the pair kissed and hugged before her beau stepped into a taxi and headed for the airport, according to the Swedish newspaper Expressen. A witness said it looked as if he had trouble using his credit card to pay the cab fare, so Nordegren offered to pay.
NY Post reports that ‘Jamie is an accomplished emerging-markets veteran who has represented his father’s interests in China for the past six years. In the mid-1990s, he specialized in Russian private equity funds. He also owned an Indy car-racing team sponsored by World Childhood Foundation, a charity founded by Queen Silvia of Sweden.’
“He’s never been so happy. He and Elin have strong feelings for each other,” a friend told the Post. “He’s a classic all-American guy. He’s handsome, a total gentleman and low-key. He’s never been in the press. Elin’s a very lucky girl; he’s a great guy but very private,” the friend continued. The source added, “He doesn’t play golf.”
However, the story doesn’t stop there though – TMZ reported this morning that Jamie Dingman’s ex-girlfriend is non-other than Rachel Uchitel, one of the women at the centre of the Tiger Woods sex scandal, who was reportedly one of Woods’ many mistresses over the years.
Apparently both Tiger and Dingman were dating Uchitel at the same time, and when things got more serious between Tiger and Uchitel, Dingman is said to have joked: “That’s ok. I’ll date his wife, Elin.” At the time, Uchitel was living with Nordegren’s new boyfriend in Miami.
According to TMZ, it was Jen Madden, the women who sold the original story on Tiger Woods, who broke the info about Dingman to them. Apparently she was a guest at the house Dingman shared with Uchitel, and overheard them talking about Tiger.
Nordegren and Woods officially divorced last August, 9 months after Tiger’s Thanksgiving day car accident that eventually exposed the golfer’s many indiscretions, costing him millions of dollars in corporate endorsements and forcing him to take time away from the game.
