With a $100 million divorce settlement from husband, Tiger Woods whom she married for six years in 2004 to 2010, Elin Nordegren has gotten herself a new man.
Chris Cline, 55, is a coal magnate billionaire who dropped out of college at Marshall University in West Virginia. He decided to join a field well founded in his family and started the Foresight Energy. According to the local Herald-Dispatch newspaper in 2011, Cline’s career is “one of the industry’s great success stories.”
According to Forbes, Cline is the 377th richest American estimated to have a net worth of $1.2 billion.
Cline has been married twice. His first marriage ended with the death of his wife; she died of breast cancer. The second marriage ended in a divorce. He has two sons and two daughters. Nordegren also has two children with Woods, 5-year-old daughter Sam and 4-year-old son Charlie.
His home is near Nordegren and it is a 34,400-square-foot mansion on the ocean. He owns a 164-foot-long yacht, big enough for 12, called Mine Games, which Cline rents out for cruises to the Caribbean and Mediterranean. The boat has five staterooms, each with its own bathroom and plasma TV; two dining rooms; a sun deck with a 72-inch flat-screen TV so that guests can watch movies under the stars; and a whirlpool spa.
