If I was publicly humiliated by my cheating husband, I’d stay as far away from him as possible. I definitely wouldn’t build a house just minutes from where he lives! But then again, I’m not Elin Nordegren. Tiger Woods’ Swedish ex-wife did exactly that and plopped down a cool $12 million to build her dream home. Where, you ask? Just miles from Tiger Woods’ new abode in sunny North Palm Beach, Florida!
Get more on Elin Nordegren and her mansion after the jump!
Apparently divorce settlements mean it’s time to INDULGE. Elin’s new 9,000 square foot waterfront home has eight bathrooms and a 4,000 square foot basement, reports TMZ, and is only ten miles from where Tiger lives. Running into my ex at the grocery store isn’t my idea of a fun Saturday morning, but in their case, someone probably does that for them, right?
In case you were wondering, Elin Nordegren and Tiger Woods finalized their divorce in August 2010 and have agreed to live near each other for their children, Charlie and Sam. Ok, I get it, but just ten miles apart??
Elin Nordegren isn’t the only one buying a ridiculously large home. Derek Jeter is building this whopper and LeBron James’ new digs aren’t shabby either. For some reason, though, Elin Nordegren seemed more down to earth and not the $12 million mansion type, but I guess I was wrong. Makes you wonder what you’d do with a $100 million divorce settlement!
