The ex-wife of golf pro Tiger Woods has reportedly called off with Jamie Dingman whom she dated more than a year after Woods’ multiple-affairs scandal broke out in public.
Nordegren, according to People Magazine, broke off the relationship in January. “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,” the insider told the publication.
Nordegren and Dingman were spotted at Saturday’s playoff hockey game between the New York Rangers and the Washington Capitals. Tiger Woods’ ex, however, wasn’t even at the game, the sources claimed.”Elin finds it hilarious to read news about her that people make up,” the source told the magazine.
Woods and Nordegren divorced last summer after a string of extramarital affairs came to light. In a statement released by Nordegren’s Virginia-based law firm of McGuireWoods the two explained the move: “We are sad that our marriage is over and we wish each other the very best for the future.”
“While we are no longer married, we are the parents of two wonderful children and their happiness has been, and will always be, of paramount importance to both of us.”
The details of the split were not revealed, but the couple’s statement also claimed, “Once we came to the decision that our marriage was at an end, the primary focus of our amicable discussions has been to ensure their future well-being.”
“The weeks and months ahead will not be easy for them as we adjust to a new family situation, which is why our privacy must be a principal concern,” it added.
According to the sources, the supermodel has been busy working towards a degree in psychology while also overseeing the construction of a new $12 million home which was paid for out of the $100 million divorce settlement she received in 2010.
As The Christian Post writes, Wood’s ex will reportedly move into the house with her two kids from her previous marriage. The star earlier revealed her plans to restore a 1920’s house that was already located on the Florida property when she was instructed by her architect to simply start over.
“It wasn’t built to the South Florida wind-loading codes of today that were put in place because of hurricanes. We had an architect and a structural engineer out here and everyone agreed that it made more sense – structurally and economically – to tear it down and start over,” said Dan Reedy of Onshore Construction and Development.
The family is currently living in a nearby rental home while Nordergren attends Rollins College in Winter Park, Florida. The residence was supposedly demolished due to bugs and hurricanes which left the home in poor condition.
“When we pulled out the windows, the bugs were everywhere,” explained Habitat’s director of deconstruction, Bobbi Blodgett. “To rebuild that house would have been ridiculous. We’re so grateful to Elin. It’s rare we get this kind of donation.”
Reedy added: “Elin could have had a garage sale and made a lot of money. But she wanted everything to go to charity.”
