- How Elin Nordegren’s Life Changed Since Her Divorce From Tiger Woods
Every so often, a celebrity news story comes along and grabs the world’s attention so completely that it feels like there are new headlines daily. For example, the OJ Simpson trial was such a huge deal that people still call out the former football star whenever he gets himself in the headlines again. On top of that, people were so blown away to learn how much Jesse James cheated on Sandra Bullock that there are urban legends about his infidelity.
Similar to Jesse James, people were truly shocked when the world learned about how much Tiger Woods cheated on his wife Elin Nordegren. Unsurprisingly, Woods and Nordegren’s marriage didn’t survive the cheating revelations as the couple got divorced in 2010. Now that it has been more than a decade since her high-profile divorce, it is fascinating to see how much Nordegren’s life has changed.
How Tiger Wood’s Life Has Changed Since His Divorce From Elin Nordegren
During most of Tiger Woods’ marriage to Elin Nordegren, everything seemed to be going right for the megastar athlete. One of the highest-paid sports stars in the world, there were plenty of brands willing to pay Woods millions for sponsorship deals. On top of that, Woods took home millions in prize money from all of the championships he won.
Of course, it should go without saying that Tiger Woods remains an incredibly fortunate person for a variety of reasons. For example, Woods continues to have a loving relationship with his kids from all accounts. On top of that, Woods has been in a relationship with a woman named Erica Herman for many years and they seem very happy together from the outside looking in.
Despite all of the ways that Tiger Woods continues to lead a charmed life, there is no doubt that the famous golf player has suffered several setbacks since his divorce from Elin Nordegren. For example, once Woods’ cheating came to light, many of his sponsorship deals dried up since a lot of companies didn’t want to be associated with him at that time. While Woods has managed to pen some sponsorship deals since then, his image will never be as squeaky clean as it once was.
Since Tiger Woods has lots of money, not being able to make as much from sponsorship deals likely isn’t that big of a deal for him. However, there is another setback the athlete has suffered since his divorce that has clearly been a huge deal for him. Since 2009, Tiger Woods has been in three different car crashes that have done serious damage to his body. Forced to undergo surgery for his injuries, Woods has played golf professionally following his recovery but he told Golf Digest that he will “never” be able to compete full-time again.
How Elin Nordegren’s Life Changed Since Her Divorce From Tiger Woods
Throughout history, there have been a handful of golf players who’ve managed to become mainstream stars including Jack Nicklaus, Bobby Jones, Phil Mickelson, and Lee Trevino. Despite all of those people’s legendary statuses, it is easy to argue that Tiger Woods is the most famous golf player of all time. Able to grab the world’s attention in a way that none of his peers had in the past, Woods became an absolute superstar.
As a result of Tiger Woods’ superstar status, Elin Nordegren found herself in the spotlight throughout her marriage to him. Worse yet, once it became clear that Tiger Woods habitually stepped out on his marriage for years, the media all became obsessed with everything Nordegren did for a while. In fact, Nordegren was even the subject of a Saturday Night Live sketch at that time. With all of that in mind, the biggest way that Nordegren’s life has changed since her divorce becomes obvious.
Now that Elin Nordegren isn’t married to one of the biggest sports stars in the world, she can live in relative anonymity. Sure, every so often the paparazzi will capture a photo of Nordegren at an event with her ex-husband that will be published. However, most people don’t care all that much about seeing photos of Woods and Nordegren peacefully co-existing as they are there for their kids so those images only garner so much attention.
On top of embracing relative anonymity, Elin Nordegren’s life has changed in other ways. For example, Nordegren has been dating the former NFL player Jordan Cameron since 2017 and there haven’t been any reports about cheating in the relationship. Nordegren and Cameron have also become parents as she gave birth to her third child, a son, in October 2019.
If all of the other ways Elin Nordegren’s life has changed since her divorce weren’t noteworthy enough, it also has to be noted that she has become the main breadwinner in her family. After all, Nordegren has made a fortune over the last decade as she reportedly has made extremely lucrative moves with the money she got in her divorce.
