Tiger Woods' ex-wife, Elin Nordegren, is reported secretly dating Chris Cline, a billionaire coal magnate. Apparently, Chris is Elin's neighbor in the upscale North Palm Beach oceanfront community of Seminole Landing, where Elin moved after she and Woods got divorced in 2010. "Elin and Chris have been dating since the holidays," a source tells New York Post's Page Six.
Chris is the owner of mining company Cline Resource and Development. According to Forbes, his firm, Foresight Energy, produces 20 million tons of coal a year and controls a total of more than 4 billion tons. The 53-year-old coal executive also owns a 164-foot luxury yacht named "Mine Games", which can be rented for $265,000 per week.
Before seeing Elin, Chris has been married twice and is a father of four children. His first wife, Sabrina, died of breast cancer in 1987. Six years later, he remarried and then got divorced in 2000.
Chris attracted some attention when he held a fundraiser in September 2012 for failed Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney at his $10.5 million home in Seminole Landing. He has been under spotlight for years for hosting blowout parties with the Palm Beach elite on his "Mine Games".
Previously, Elin and Tiger split up after nearly 6 years of marriage because of Tiger's marital infidelity. Earlier this year, the former Swedish model and the former world's No. 1 golfer were rumored to get back together after being spotted together in public. Tiger refused to clarify it, saying, "I am not going to comment on my private life."
