Elin Nordegren, the former wife of Tiger Woods, bought an INSANE mansion in North Palm Beach, Fla., for $12.3 million last year. That piece is now straight up bulldozed.

She is building a new palace on the lot as we speak.

Elin is living in the San Remo condominiums, an oceanfront development in nearby Juno Beach, while her new home is being built, according to local officials.

Elin Nordegren Mansion

Palm Beach County issued the demolition permit for the 17,000-SF, circa 1932 property on December 16 and it is active until June 17, official records show.

The 77-acre development is among the top five most exclusive communities in Palm Beach County, according to real estate agents with knowledge of the area.

A listing for a house on the same street as Elin Nordegren has an asking price of $18.9 million. One can only imagine what her new home is going to be worth.

She won't need a Florida mortgage to finance it, though. Elin, who divorced Tiger in 2010 following his string of infidelities, is now worth $100 million-plus.

This UCLA fan thought he had THE perfect marriage proposal planned, but his would-be fiancee shot him down - LIVE on the JumboTron at a basketball game.

It all went down Dec. 23. With the “Mistletoe Cam” scanning the arena to capture fans kissing, one Bruins fan was interested in something more memorable.

“What’s going on? Wait, this might be a little more than a kiss!” said the sideline reporter as cameras focused on the guy. She was right, but no one expected this:

“I knew that I was going to do this the first day I met you,” said the poor guy told his girlfriend as he bent down on one knee. “Now’s a good a time as ever.”

To everyone’s surprise, the woman took one look at a ring and shook her head. The announcer edged the mic toward her, but she pushed it away and ran off.

The best part, for everyone but the two people involved? The crowd collectively groaned as if the Bruins' potential game-winner just rattled out at the buzzer.

Silver lining? UCLA beat visiting Richmond 71-63.

Chad Ochocinco's fiancee Evelyn Lozada may 86 the couple's wedding for good because she suspects 85 has been cheating behind her back, according to new reports.

The Basketball Wives reality star recently confronted the Chad after she became suspicious about his recent behavior ... and apparently wasn't moved by his reaction.

The couple hasn't split up, but the wedding is off ... for now.

Chad Ochocinco and Evelyn Lozada

Evelyn Lozada and Chad Ochocinco are (were?) set to marry this summer.

While Evelyn hasn't "officially" cancelled the wedding yet, things aren't looking good right now. It's still unclear if this will be resolved in time ... or at all.

To make matters worse, Chad and Evelyn were supposed to begin shooting their new reality show in just three weeks. That plan is also now up in the air.

Lozada was also at the center of cheating allegations recently - with Terrell Owens no less - but this time it's Ocho who's supposedly been running around.

We know you can't take the suspense, but we'll keep you updated. Stay tuned.

Lamar Odom is off to an extremely poor start on his new team.

Following a trade demand last month, the reality star/power forward was dealt to the Dallas Mavericks from the Los Angeles Lakers, with many experts predicting the addition would help the Mavs in their quest to repeat as NBA champions.

But Dallas is currently tied for the worst record in the Western Conference (2-4), while Odom's numbers are drastically down across the board, as you can see here:

Lamar Odom Stats

Might the Kardashian kurse have taken a few years to katch up to Lamar?

He's not the only baller struggling after a summer filled with reality show tapings and red carpet appearances. Kris Humphries and the Nets are 1-5, with Kim's ex recently suffering a shoulder injury that has sidelined him indefinitely.

Let's hope Odom soon picks it up. If his stock falls too low, and wife Khloe Kardashian grows desperate to get her man back in the news, we know what will come next. It rhymes with schmex zape.

The Denver Broncos take on the Pittsburgh Steelers this Sunday in an AFC Divisional Round Playoff game that, by our unique metrics, ought to be narrowly won by Denver.

If that happens, and if the Bengals knock off the Texans on Saturday, Tim Tebow will take his team to Baltimore to face the Ravens - and defensive standout Terrell Suggs is already getting the trash talk started in anticipation of such a matchup.

Appearing yesterday on ESPN's First Take, Suggs referenced Denver's 7-3 loss to close the season, along with the perception that Tebow's religion conviction actually helps Denver pull out victories.

“With all do respect, we dont pray on sidelines”, the linebacker said. “Once again God had to save Tim Tebow and the Denver Broncos... [He] couldn't even give them two drives? 7 to 3?"

Suggs, a leading candidate for Defensive Player of the Year, added that he doesn't "feel comfortable" praying every fourth quarter and would never ask God to "come save me again."

That's fair, but we wonder if the Baltimore star would have a different viewpoint if the Ravens didn't have Ray Rice in the backfield. That guy is awesome.

With David Beckham's contract with the L.A. Galaxy ending this past November after a huge victory in the MLS Cup championships, his professional future is unclear.

Crystal clear, however, is ... just look at the H&M ad below!

H&M David Beckham Underwear Ad

Even though the father of four's day job is unsettled at the moment, there is no doubt his side gig as a celebrity fashion designer has kicked into high gear.

The first ad for the 36-year-old's line of body wear for H&M debuted today, revealing who else but the soccer star himself stripped down to his briefs. Wow.

Flaunting his toned bod and tattoos, Beckham wants you to know you can get in his underpants around Valentine's Day. In a manner of speaking of course.

Quick, what's the difference between LeBron James and Savannah Brinson?

She got a ring before he did!!!

Jokes about LeBron's lack of championships aside, we're very happy for the long-time couple, who has been dating since high school and who has two kids together. They got engaged on New Year's Eve and, as you can see below, the Heat superstar didn't skimp on the ring:

LeBron James, Engagement Ring

The platinum and diamond rock features a seven-carat pear-shaped center diamond and classically tapered baguette sides. It was presented to Brinson Saturday night, following a dinner at the Shelborne hotel in South Beach.

James and the Heat suffered their first loss of the season last night, but remain the strong favorites to take home the 2012 NBA title.
