Lindsey Vonn and Elin Nordegren are reportedly close friends
In the words of the great Steve Sitfler, “You two used to bang, and you two are banging now, so this must be awkward.” When it comes to Tiger Woods’ ex-wife Elin Nordegren and his current girlfriend Lindsey Vonn, that is apparently not the case.
According to Us Weekly, Nordegren and Vonn get along just fine and have even become close friends.
“After meeting her, (Elin) found she actually liked her,” a source reportedly told the gossip publication. “You’d think it would be weird, but Elin loves Lindsey and they talk all the time,” the source tells Us. “Elin likes that Lindsey is a strong woman.”
Nordegren is said to have gotten close to Vonn because she wanted to get to know her if she was going to be around her children — 6-year-old Sam and 5-year-old Charlie — a lot. Not only do they get along, but the entire crew reportedly went on vacation together and Elin and Vonn ventured off for a few drinks while Tiger stayed with the kids.
“Lindsey is really good for Tiger. She’s strong, opinionated, and keeps him in line,” the source added. “Elin found that they are very similar and have a lot in common. They laugh and talk like they have been girlfriends forever.”
It sounds like Elin and Lindsey have come a long way from the days where Vonn sat in the car for an hour to avoid having a run-in with the Swedish beauty. There have been rumors that Nordegren believes Vonn is a good influence on Tiger, but it’s still pretty surprising to hear that they are BFFs.
Good for them. That’s probably best for the kids.
