Elin Nordegren demolishes $12M mansion
By The Sports Xchange
Tiger Woods’ former wife, Elin Nordegren, has had her $12 million mansion in North Palm Beach, Fla., demolished and plans to build another home at the same location, TMZ reports.
Nordegren received a $100 million settlement in her divorce from Woods, and she purchased the Florida home in March, eight months after the divorce. That home was just 10 miles from a home Woods bought.
Nordegren, a former model from Sweden, and her two children from the Woods marriage were expected to move into the mansion, which has six bedrooms and eight bathrooms.
Instead she had the building destroyed, and has hired an architect to help build a new home in the same place.
Every worker involved in the construction of the new home is required to sign a confidentiality agreement, according to TMZ.
There is no indication how long it will take to build the new mansion, and the New York Post reported Nordegren will live at a mansion in the same private community in the meantime.
She and Woods divorced in 2010 after she discovered he had been involved in numerous affairs. In July, she began dating billionaire Jamie Dingman, according to The Daily Mail.
