Tiger Woods is a single man after he reportedly cheated on girlfriend Lindsey Vonn, but some think the golf star may soon end up with an unlikely rebound — his former wife, Elin Nordegren.
Reports emerged this week that Woods and Vonn broke up after Tiger confessed his infidelity in couples therapy. Sources said Vonn simply walked out of the session and called off the relationship with Tiger.
An insider told Extra that Tiger’s cheating was devastating to Vonn, who saw a real future with him. The source added that the affair was more of a meaningless fling.
“Yes, Tiger cheated again. But it wasn’t with anyone special. He really wanted Lindsey to be the one. But he blew it again. He can’t help himself. He’s got an addiction. He relapsed. He had a relapse in the sex department. Lindsey found out about women again. Always while he’s on the road. Just like when he was with Elin.”
It was the same kind of casual cheating that led to the end of Tiger’s marriage to Elin Nordegren, but some believe the two could actually have a future together again. The gambling website paddypower.com, which has been known to post betting odds on a number of pop culture topics, listed odds on who Tiger will take for his next girlfriend. Elin Nordegren topped the list at 7-1 odds.
This is not the first time that rumors have connected Tiger Woods and Elin Nordegren. Several times over the past few months, there have been rumors of a reunion, including last year when Elin built a miniature golf course as part of her new $12.2 million estate in Palm Beach, Florida.
Tiger and Elin maintained a good relationship for the sake of their kids, and in the past, Elin has said the relationship goes no further than that.
“I have moved on and I am in a good place,” she said in an an interview with People magazine. “My relationship with Tiger is centered around our children and we are doing really good – we really are – and I am so happy that is the case. He is a great father.”
But other sources indicated that Lindsey Vonn was growing uncomfortable at the relationship between Tiger Woods and Elin Nordegren, and was fearful that Tiger might one day leave her to return to his ex-wife. With both Tiger and Elin single, that is now a possibility.
