After a divorce settlement that would make even Donald Trump swoon, Elin Nordegren did not have to hook up with a man for his money. But when you live in neighborhood dotted with mansions, it's only natural to date men with fat wallets. The former nanny and model is reportedly being canoodled by Chris Cline, a 55-year-old coal industry heir whose billion-dollar bank account bests her ex-husband's relatively meager golf booty.
Few people blamed Nordegren for going after Tiger Woods' money after media reports revealed the golfer was a serial cheater with waitresses and escorts stashed in cities across the United States. The pretty blonde Swede not only pocketed a cool $100 million from the divorce, she wound up single in a swanky neighborhood where she could meet rich men looking for love.
Elin Nordegren is not the only famous cheated-on wife who bounced back with a new boyfriend. Here are some other celebrities who took a second stab at love.
In what could be the most famous celebrity affair scandal of our time, Jennifer Aniston seemed devastated when Brad Pitt fell under the spell of another woman. After five years of marriage, he jilted the "Friends" star for his "Mr. & Mrs. Smith" co-star, Angelina Jolie. Post-divorce, Aniston went through boyfriends like purses, but she is now engaged to one of her own movie co-stars, Justin Theroux, although their actual wedding date is as mysterious as that of Brangelina.
When "Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" star Camille Grammer learned her husband Kelsey was leading a double life with a flight attendant in New York City, she ditched the "Frasier" star and also found a younger replacement, Dimitri Charalambopoulos. Though Camille is reportedly leaving the reality TV show about rich L.A. women who spend most of their time eating, shopping and gossiping, her romance with the hunky Greek hottie seems to be heating up.
On the still-looking list, two wronged celebrities for whom fans are rooting to find true romance are Sandra Bullock and Eva Longoria. The "Blind Side" actress was rumored to have rebounded with Ryan Reynolds after her split with motorcycle man Jesse James, and the tabloids went into overdrive spreading wedding rumors. But the relationship went nowhere and the "Green Lantern" star has since married "Gossip Girl" Blake Lively. Meanwhile, Longoria took another dive in the jock pool and dated Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez for a while after divorcing her philandering b-baller husband, Tony Parker. But the not-so-desperate beauty reportedly broke off the relationship after deciding he wasn't the real deal.
