Elin Nordegren is reportedly dating NHL star Douglas Murray months after ending her relationship with Jamie Dingman, the man who helped her cope with her divorce from Tiger Woods.
The 32-year-old was spotted with the Swedish ice hockey player at Rose Nightclub in Stockholm recently where onlookers claim that the pair were hugging and being affectionate according to Swedish newspaper Expressen.se.
Nordegren is also said to have enjoyed dinner with Murray, 32, at the beginning of July and the rumored couple were reportedly joined by Swedish pro golfer Jesper Parnevik- the same man who allegedly set her up with Woods.
Murray recently denied reports that his relationship with Nordegren is serious, telling the newspaper that they are only "friends" who are still getting to know each other.
"We are only friends. We are not dating and we have never dated. We have friends in common and we have only known each other for a couple of weeks," Murray told Expressen.
However when asked about the possibility of the friendship turning in to something more over time Murray remained coy.
"I have no comments," he said.
Prior to Murray, Nordegren was linked to 37-year-old Dingman, the investor son of renowned billionaire Michael Dingman.
It is unclear why the mother of two ended her relationship with Dingman, but previous reports suggested that she was still healing from her divorce from Woods.
"[Nordegren] says Jamie's a great guy - and they're still friends - but I think it was just too early after the divorce for her to get serious with anyone," an alleged friend told FoxSports.com.
Nordegren divorced Woods in 2010 following a sex scandal and she is believed to have received a $110 million divorce settlement.
One of the many women who had an affair with Woods was identified as Rachel Uchitel, a New York-based model, and it was eventually revealed that she had dated Dingman prior to Nordegren shortly after the exes began dating.
