After her on again-off again support of her philandering ex-husband's relationship with Vonn, Nordegren has given Woods’ relationship with the Olympic skier her blessing, sources told Page Six of The New York Post.
The gossip column reports that Nordegren “really likes Lindsey and thinks she is a very good influence on Tiger.”
Nordegren, who had two children with Woods, famously dumped him after his affairs with dozens of women.
Woods is now dating the blond-haired Vonn, after meeting her at a charity event in 2012. Now, Nordegren has given their relationship the okay.
Sources tell The Post the former model believes her ex “seems happy with Lindsey, and she gets on well with their children.”
Nordegren — who reportedly received a $100 million divorce settlement from Woods — is happily dating billionaire coal-mining entrepreneur Chris Cline, and constructing a $12 million home in North Palm Beach, Fla.
Meanwhile, Vonn opened up about her relationship with Woods in Vogue’s August issue, admitting: “We immediately clicked, you know? It was just one of those things.” Though they’ve been inseparable since meeting, Lindsey, who divorced her skiing coach Thomas Vonn in 2012, says she’ll never wed again. “No, thanks! I am definitely not getting married. To anyone,” she said.
Vonn explained: “It’s very hard for me to relate to someone who doesn’t do sports at a high level. That part is necessary. But to have business in the relationship is very difficult. It definitely did not work for me, and I would not recommend it. I would also not recommend getting married!”
Vonn is training for the 2014 Winter Olympics in Russia, and rebounding after knee surgery following a frightening crash on the slopes during the world championships in Austria.
Woods is in Scotland competing in the British Open.
