Elin Nordegren Tears Down $12M Mansion, Unable To Find Good Wood

January 9, 2012

Last week, we brought you the story of Elin Nordegren’s curious-at-the-time decision to knock down a $12 million mansion. It seemed, at first glance, a rather conspicuous display of wealth — I’ve got so much money I can demolish a mansion and build a new one! A divorce from Tiger Woods, it seemed, was the gift that kept on giving.

Well, turns out that there was a pretty good reason for razing the North Palm Beach, Fla., estate: termites. A report in People magazine indicated that the 1920s-era mansion fell short of current hurricane safety codes, and combined with a termite infestation, that was enough to warrant blasting it down to the sand.Also of note: Nordegren offered a local Habitat for Humanity chapter a month to take whatever it could from the mansion before demolition. (No, don’t go all, “Oh, so generous, donating termite-infested wood!” on Elin. It was a nice gesture.)

Elin Nordegren Admits Dating Kevin Bacon

July 17, 2011

Elin Nordegren may be in Sweden, but she just can’t seem to escape  Rachel Uchitel — Tiger Woods ex-wife is dating marketing exec Jamie Dingman, whose dad is a billionaire tycoon. But before Elin, sources tell TMZ Jamie Dingman and Rachel Uchitel were an item — and there was a little bit of an overlap with Jamie and Tiger, but Jamie bowed out to the golfer.

In fact, when Rachael got serious with Tiger, Jamie joked with her, “That ok.  I’ll date his wife, Elin.”

And get this … at the time the Tiger Woods scandal broke, Jamie was living with Rachel in a MIami home.

And there’s more. Remember the name, Jen Madden? She’s the one who sold the Tiger Woods story in the first place, and she got the info because she stayed at the Miami home and overheard Rachel tell Jamie about her affair with Tiger.

Who knew Elin Nordegren and Rachel Uchitel were playing the same golf course. Obviously Jamie let Tiger play through. Elin did mention that she had dated Kevin Bacon before she was married.
