Elin Nordegren

Tiger Woods’ ex wife made out like a freaking bandit who stole the crown jewels and all the money in the US mint.

Elin Nordegren is starting over. Again. It is reported that the $12.3-million oceanfront mansion Elin purchased just last year, according to news reports was torn down recently…to start over again. The home was chock-full of amenities: 17,000-square feet. Eight bathrooms. In-ground pool. Elevator. So, why did she do it?

The divorced mother of two young children simply wanted something bigger and better, a dream mansion, according to the Palm Beach Post. “It was a beautiful place, incredible landscaping, fantastic ocean frontage,” Realtor John True told the Post. “I heard that the original plan was to renovate. But once they started, I heard they decided to tear it down.”

Nordegren has hired a high-priced architect and will be requiring all workers to sign confidentiality agreements, according to TMZ.

Oh to be rich and waste money when the rest of the world is struggling…must be nice.
