Four years after her scandal-filled divorce from pro-golfer Tiger Woods, Elin Nordegren is opening up about one of the most public celebrity splits of all time.
When the mother-of-two found out her husband of five years was living a duel life, engaging in multiple affairs throughout their relationship, she admits it was devastating.
"I felt safe with him," the 34-year-old says, "the word betrayal isn’t strong enough."
The Swedish-born former model, who recently graduated from Rollins College with a 3.96 GPA after nine years, has had no trouble landing back on her feet.
"I have moved on, and I am in a good place,” shares Elin, who has been dating coal magnate Chris Cline for one year.
And though it may be surprising to some, the blonde beauty has nothing but nice things to say about her ex when it comes to his co-parenting skills.
“Our relationship is centered around our children [Sam, 6 and Charlie, 5], and we are doing really good — we really are," she says of her and Tiger, who only lives 25 minutes away from her Florida community. "He is a great father.”
Elin also approves of the golfer's one-year relationship with Olympic skier Lindsey Vonn.
"I’m happy for Tiger," she tells People magazine. "In general, in any kind of stepparent relationship, I’m happy that there’s somebody else loving my children.”
