Elin Nordegren for a moment was one of the most famous faces in America, a scorned wife determined to pick up the pieces after a very public cheating scandal.
But as the attention from the Tiger Woods cheating scandal has faded, Elin Nordegren has reportedly slipped into relative obscurity herself. The Swedish model was recently seen out in Miami, going unnoticed and having to remind people that she was once famous in order to get into an exclusive club.
As ANI reported, Nordegren was spending some time in Miami with friends. Along with two of her siblings and Swedish hockey player Douglas Murray, the group at at Mr. Chow and later tried to get into an exclusive club.
Only now that she’s split from Tiger Woods, Elin Nordegren doesn’t get the recognition she once did.
“Nobody recognizes her — she was only a celebrity because she married Tiger Woods,” a confidential source told ANI.
When the group finished dinner and tried to go to Hyde nightclub, they were initially refused entry.
“Someone in the entourage said, ‘This is Elin, Tiger Woods’ wife,’ so only after they dropped the name, they let her in,” a source said.
Nordegren and Murray had been spotted together in July, but told a Swedish tabloid that they weren’t dating. As the group spent time at the nightclub, there were few people to pry in on their relationship, ANI noted.
Nordegren continued her quiet time in Miami on Saturday, when she met up with a group of friends that included Nicole Kuehne, former wife of another pro golfer, Hank Kuehne.
Back in Sweden, Elin Nordegren still carries some sway — and in other parts of Florida, too. The model recently bought a 21,000-square-foot mansion with some of the $100 million she got in her divorce settlement with Tiger Woods, TMZ reported.
