Elin Is Smart
It may not seem the likeliest of pairings, but Tiger Woods' ex-wife Elin Nordegren and current flame Lindsey Vonn have apparently become close friends, according to an US Weekly report.
Woods' former wife, 34, reportedly approached the 29-year-old Olympic alpine skier because she knew Vonn would be around Nordegren and Woods' two young children, the article stated.
"After meeting her, she found she actually liked her," a source told US Weekly. "Elin likes that Lindsey is a strong woman."
Their initial encounter apparently blossomed into a full-blown friendship, with the US Weekly article reporting the two even vacationing together recently. "Elin found that they are very similar and have a lot in common," the source said. "They laugh and talk like they have been girlfriends forever."
Nordegren split with Woods in 2010 amid news of the golfer's serial infidelity.
Woods and Vonn went public with their relationship in 2013, and the Olympic gold medalist has been seen palling around with Woods' kids at Tiger's golfing events ever since.
