Elin Nordegren’s life as she knew it would change in an instant when her world came crashing down around her following the revelation of her then husband, Tiger Woods’ philandering ways. It’s hard to believe that it’s been almost two years since the scandal rocked the world, let alone Elin’s. No doubt she would be cautious about finding love again. Last month, it was reported that she had a new man in her life. Enter Jamie Dingman, an American investor whom she met at a Red Cross Ball in January. I was so happy to hear that she had found someone and seemingly put the past behind her. So what are these rumors floating around that her new love is an alleged ‘Playboy’?
OK! Magazine (yes, consider the source), claims that friends close to Elin are worried that Jamie is ‘as much of a player as Tiger, if not more so.’ Geez. Seriously? Sources revealed to the mag:
“Jamie “grew up incredibly privileged” and “is a total playboy, exactly the type of guy a lot of people believe she should be staying away from.”
“I actually feel sorry for her,” another insider adds. “He has houses and girls all over the world.”
Prior to Elin, he previously dated Bridget Moynahan and Princess Madeleine of Sweden. Imagine the shock when TMZ reported that he was also linked to one of Tiger’s former mistresses, Rachel Uchitel. Friends of Dingman claim that Uchitel was lying, but the two apparently spent two and a half weeks together in Miami and according to TMZ, they allegedly hooked up twice. Okay, really? I can’t even fathom what Elin was thinking once she heard about all this. Awkward, eh?
So is Jamie Dingman the ‘player’ these ‘insiders’ claim he is? Let’s hope not. Elin’s been through hell and back and deserves some happiness in her life, don’t you think?
