Elin Nordegren Single Again? Since January, Says Friend (VIDEO)

Elin Nordegren is single and has been since the beginning of the year says a new source, despite reports that suggest that her and businessman Jamie Dingman have been heating things up.

Tiger Wood's ex-wife was linked to businessman Jamie Dingman last year. However according to one of Nordegren's friends, the pair split back in January and Nordegren has been single for a while.

"She 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," a friend told People magazine.

Rumors were sparked earlier this week when reports ran the Nordegren and Dingman were scene enjoying a play off hockey game. The friend however, claims that the former Sweedish model was not even at the game.

Instead the model has been busy working towards a degree in psychology while also overseeing the construction of a new $12 million home which was paid for out of the $100 million divorce settlement she received in 2010. News about Nordegren seeking a divorce from Woods was revealed after it was discovered that he had participated in multiple affairs.

Nordergren will move into the house with her two kids from her previous marriage. The model previously intended to restore a 1920's house that was already located on the Florida property when she was instructed by her architect to simply start over. Meanwhile, the family is living in a nearby rental home while Nordergren attends Rollins College in Winter Park, Florida.

As far as rumors go, Nordergren's friend suggests that the model finds the strange speculations about her in the media humorous.

"Elin finds it hilarious to read news about her that people make up," the friend told People magazine.
