Elin Nordegren is back on the market.
The former Mrs. Tiger Woods and her businessman boyfriend, Jamie Dingman, have split. A source tells People magazine that the pair ended their relationship back in January. The source goes on to claim that Elin’s aversion to the idea of getting into a serious relationship is the reason for the breakup.
“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 source tells the magazine.
One could hardly blame Nordegren for being apprehensive about getting into a serious relationship after ex-husband Tiger Woods publicly scorned her. It was reported that he had been carrying on several affairs during the course of their marriage. Woods later admitted to the infidelities.
Despite confirmation from the source that Nordegren is now single, it has been reported as recently as this week that the relationship between Nordegren and Dingman is not only still on but heating up. However, People reports that Nordegren finds the rumors to be nothing more than amusing.
“Elin finds it hilarious to read news about her that people make up,” the friend said.
Nordegren should have no trouble keeping herself occupied post-split. Fox News reports that in addition to being the mother of two small children – daughter Sam, 4, and son Charlie, 3 with ex-husband Tiger Woods – she is a part-time college student working on getting her degree in psychology while simultaneously overseeing the construction of the new home that she’s building for herself and her children in North Palm Beach, Florida.
