It’s the summer of love for Tiger Woods ex wife, Elin Nordegren, as the New York Post reports that she has been dating 35-year-old South African investor Jamie Dingman, son of billionaire Michael Dingman, for several months.
Jamie works for his father and is an accomplished emerging-markets veteran who has represented his interests in China for the past six years.
Dingman has been linked in the past to model and actress Bridget Moynahan, who has a son with Tom Brady and Sweden’s Princess Madeleine.
The relationship was discovered by Swedish newspaper Expressen, when Elin Nordegren and Jamie Dingman were spotted kissing outside her Stockholm apartment, that she recently put on the market, earlier this week.
Since her divorce from Tiger Woods almost a year ago, she has avoided the limelight only surfacing once, when she made headlines by purchasing a $12.2 million dollar mansion in March 2011, located ten miles from Tiger’s $54 million property. The purchase was made so they could both be closer to the children.
There’s conflicting reports on where the two met, but one story mentions that Nordegren and Dingman met at a college in Florida, where they were both studying at the time.
“He’s never been so happy. He and Elin have strong feelings for each other,” a friend said. “He’s a classic all-American guy. He’s handsome, a total gentleman and low-key. He’s never been in the press. Elin’s a very lucky girl; he’s a great guy but very private.”
The best news, the source added, “He doesn’t play golf.”
