Elin Nordegren: I'm Happy For Tiger Woods ... But You Can't Ever Forget That

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Elin Nordegren is opening up about ex-husband Tiger Woods in the new issue of People, telling the magazine, "I have moved on, and I am in a good place."


  • Elin Nordegren Graduates!
  • Liger

Indeed. She just graduated from Rollins College with a 3.96 GPA, earning her the Class of 2014's top honor and even gave the commencement speech.

During her address, Elin Nordegren made a few jokes at Woods' expense. Still, she insists they're fine ... even if she'll never totally get over what he did.

"I have moved on, and I am in a good place," she says, even though "the word betrayal isn't strong enough" to describe Tiger's immense cheating.

Given his prolific banging of Rachel Uchitel (and Jamie Grubbs, and Joslyn James, and Holly Sampson, and on and on and on), one can certainly understand.

Still, regarding her ex, she reiterates, "Our relationship is centered around our children, and we are doing really good. We really are. He is a great father."

"I'm happy for Tiger," she says, adding of Lindsey Vonn, "In general, in any kind of stepparent relationship, I'm happy that there's somebody else loving my children."

Nordegren is currently dating coal magnate Chris Cline, 55, and recently moved into a new Florida mansion. They see Tiger and Lindsey regularly.

Perhaps because of the insatiable interest in her personal life, she says only, "Chris and I, since we've been close, have decided not to talk about our relationship."

Whether marriage and more children are in her future, Nordegren plays it coy, saying that she can certainly see it, but isn't looking at it as make-or-break:

"I think I would like that. Yeah. But I have a boy and a girl, and I couldn't ask for anything more. I'm in a great spot ... great if it happens, great if it doesn't."

Great that she's handled this whole situation so well for the last four and a half years, and to see her in such a good place with her own life and Tiger's.

More proof ladies that success is the best revenge. She is so much better off without him. Never settle for less than you deserve. If only more women had the guts to believe that...

@ Art

Are you implying that Tiger woods is doing badly. If Elin is doing any better it could only be because of the divorce settlement and that is a fraction of Tiger Wood's money.

@ mzami

I totally agree


Paku, I agree with you, no need to be racist here. They are two adults here and he should probably just remain single.

@ kenneth

shame on tiger he needs to remember that he is black his mother was black thai his father was black, please doint waste space on these two


when a person cheats on you its hard to trust again its always in the back of your mind.


Men such as Tiger should never marry. Just have girlfriends and never promise fidelity. In fact, this is how ALL men should do their business. Of course, they would need to also let go of the notion that his girlfriend is exclusive. Seriously... the whole need for exclusivity is based on fear, possession, etc. Its time we discard this concept entirely.

@ Jim

Wouldn't it just be easier for straight men to learn to f*** themselves? Since you love yourselves so much. Why do you need women at all?

@ Jim

Men cheat with women...if you're going to punish one side it's not going to work. In this example you have more women cheating vs one man cheating. Here is the correction - people who cheat should never marry.

@ Jim

said the ding dong who can't keep it in his pants. The lack of self-control over who and how often a man fornicates has nothing to do with how "big his drive is." Rather, it has everything to do with how small his soul is.


Why does she feel the need to bring up Tiger's name in her speech?? There are thousands of women who have been cheated on and did not leave the marriage with $300 million! GET A LIFE ELIN!!! You are no angel!! She sounds like a bitter spoiled gold digging bimbo!

@ Yolanda Harrison

Said the dick-whipped feminist. LOL! Enjoy that second class citizenship honey. You earned it!


Wish i could forgive my spouse. Now i don't know what to do alone with my daughters,get a woman in the house and have them hate her.Not meet anybody and i will feel like i miss something. Haaa all to complicated.
