Chris Cline: Elin Nordegren Boyfriend in Five Quick Facts

by at . Comments

Tuesday, reports surfaced that Tiger Woods' ex-wife Elin Nordegren has been quietly dating coal magnate Chris Cline for the past couple of months.

Didn't see that one coming, did you? Who's Chris Cline?

Wouldn't you like to know. And wouldn't you know it, now you can! Here are five things you need to know about the new man in Elin Nordegren's life:

  • Elin
  • Chris Cline Pic

1. He's rich, b!tch! With a net worth of $1.2 billion, putting him 377th in the whole country, Chris Cline's money blows Tiger Woods out of the water.

2. He's got a dirty job. Or at least pays people to do his dirty work. The West Virginia native is head of Foresight Reserves LP, a major coal producer.

His luxury yacht's name? Mine Games. Bam.

3. He's charitable. Chris has given $5 million to West Virginia's School of Medicine and its athletics department, plus $5 million to his alma mater, Marshall.

4. He's 53, or 20 years older than Elin. He's also been married before - twice - and has two sons and two daughters. Elin and Tiger have one of each.

5. They're neighbors. Cline owns an estate in Palm Beach, Fla., in the same gated community where Nordegren built her new $12 million mansion.

Either really convenient for booty calls or really awkward after they break up, but we're going with the former for now, from the sound of things.

Hey Chris Cline how about donating that money to something that really matters like childhood hunger or Foster children you know something that can help people who really need it instead of donating it towards lab equipment or sports. He seems like your typical head up their ass rich dude.


so don't let money be a reason to hook up with somebody.
you mean in the U.S.A.? haaaaahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha!!


She has her own money, so she really doesn't need a billionaire. He's too old for her. He looks at least 25 years older than her. She's too young and hot to date an old dude. She needs a mature guy, like 35-45. And someone hot so she can have another baby.


Thus guy is 53 (too old for Elin), earns money by polluting the planet, he is worth 1 billion plus and only donated 10 million? (Michael Jackson donated 300 million plus). Well, maybe he's nice to kids and fun to talk to, or something. But I hope someone else comes along. As for Tiger, if he really tried to buy her back, that was a stupid move. No one wants to be "bought".

@ astor

I think he is just right for her. 50 is the new 40 since the advent of viagra! Many older men nowaday divorce their wives for younger women so this will not be a problem here. This guy seems a man of subtance and values who could provide Elin the stability, love and security she did not get with a Tiger or another younger man.


I have known about this since I read a story on Gossip Extra, in January stating that Elin hosted a New Year's Eve party with Cline and Tiger went ballistic and this was what triggers Tiger's multi- million proposal to Elin that was reported , also in January by the Enquirer!!! I guess that Elin did not accept Tiger's proposal! Good for her!!!
