Awk-ward: Elin Nordegren’s New Beau Was Previously Involved With Rachel Uchitel

Hoo boy, this ain’t good. The interwebs caught fire last week when photogs captured Tiger Woods ex, Elin Nordegren, canoodling with a new, unnamed man. Later it was discovered that this new fellow was some rich guy named Jamie Dingman and that the two had been dating for some time but had managed to keep their relationship under wraps. Unfortunately for poor Miss Elin, her new beau has brought something back into her life she would prefer not to deal with again – a woman from her past has reared her ugly, gold-digging head: alleged Tiger Woods mistress Rachel Uchitel.

According to reports, Elin Nordegren’s new boyfriend, the aforementioned Dingman, allegedly was involved in a romantic relationship with Uchitel a few years ago, perhaps at the same time Tiger was reportedly involved with her. Yikes.

Via the Chicago Sun-Times:

Even though Dingman’s dalliance with Uchitel predated his relationship with Nordegren, she is devastated she was blindsided by all this — especially since Dingman didn’t tell her about the creepy connection until after the news broke.

“I think she’s worried she’s stumbled on another ‘Tiger,’ ” said a close Nordegren friend Monday.

Sheesh. Poor, poor Elin. When is this scorned woman every going to catch a break? You know, except for the being filthy rich, beautiful and having the entire world’s sympathy for having the unfortunate experience of being married to a horndogging scoundrel part.

Still, one has to wonder if this latest development will put the kibosh on the couple’s budding romance. All I would add is maybe Elin should stop focusing on becoming involved with überwealthy, globetrotting high rollers and settle down with a regular, down-to-earth guy. A sports blogger, perhaps. Stranger things have happened, right? Okay, no, a stranger thing has never happened, nor will there ever be a stranger thing than that.
