Tiger Woods’ ex-wife bulldozes $12 million home

Before:



After:



There are times when divorce forces people to do strange things. Burn sheets. Throw out clothes. Toss rings into the ocean. But when you get $100 million in your divorce, you can trump just about anything and that's what happened with Tiger Woods' ex-wife when she bought a $12 million home and bulldozed the whole thing.

Yes, according to TMZ, Elin Nordegren bought a $12 million home in North Palm Beach, Fla., but didn't like it, and has plowed the whole thing.

The house, which had six bedrooms and eight bathrooms, is now just rubble, with no word yet on what is going to replace the beautiful building you see above, but I guess when you have nine figures in the bank, it doesn't really matter what you want.

I guess we can all applaud Elin on not rolling over after all this happened and continuing on with her life. But I think we can all agree on one thing: Why in the world is she still in Florida? Wouldn't you want to move back home for good?

Agreed.

I would have probably used the word "****" in there though.

While I think a waste, I think it just on a different scale than most of us. There are several areas around Dallas where they rip down perfectly good homes and build "McMansions". Heck they have done it several time in my neighborhood.

What is the old real estate saying? Location Location Loation

She bought the land and got rid of the existing house, so what? People do that all the time.

It would have been nice if she had donated what she could before she knocked it down. Otherwise, I don't really care what she does with her money.

Because Florida is where all the nutty, batshit insane people live. I think it is home for her.

Seems like a good way to put some money into the local economy. Although I hear that rich people just like to watch their money sit in the bank.

Elin Nordegren is actually just like Tiger's other mistresses. Only she got there first and snagged the big one. Set for life. She can afford to do anything wants to do.

Can't really blame her... the place looks like a dump.

Agreed. That's why she had it bulldozed!

Well, I have to say, it really is a boring-looking house. Glad she got rid of it. Maybe she'll put in a local Ikea there or something.

Re: Tiger Woods’ ex-wife bulldozes $12 million home

Normally I say people can do whatever they want with their money, but since she didn't earn it and the only reason she has it is because she divorced her husband who DID earn the money, this pisses me off slightly. But then again, like it or not, it's her money and she can do whatever she wants with it. I assume she's still in Florida because Tiger lives in Florida and he sees his kids at least every once in a while, so it's just easier. Had she got full custody I'm sure she would have gone someplace else. Honestly, I think this place is only a couple miles away from Tiger's new whore palace. But if she paid $12 million for this and then builds a $10 million house, that's the same as if she just bought a $23 million house. Other than the fact that she's using Tiger's money, there's nothing wrong with her buying a house that costs that much since she can afford it.

She didn't earn it? If she didn't earn it, she wouldn't have had it. She earned everything she has.

Having to put up with his cheating ass, and all the embarrassment? Having to totally move on to a different life? Not sure how you can say she hasn't earned it.

Personally, I hope she squeezes his bank account a little more.

Agreed on all counts.

Buildings are torn down all the time - why pick on her? They are going to implode the old Orlando Magic arena in March.

If that's the definition of earning... where do I sign up? I'd love a job like that if that's the payout. I'll even settle for 10% of what she "earned".

Who cares how the money was "earned"? She's spending it, isn't she? And in America. That makes her an engine of our sputtering economy.

Re: Tiger Woods’ ex-wife bulldozes $12 million home

Disappointing but not surprising to see expressions of support for this odious person's unmitigated selfishness and solipsism. If she feels the beachfront behemoth doesn't meet her needs, bitch, sell it and buy something else, but razing it to put up another hedonistic estate just shows an off-the-charts degree of either cluelessness or callousness to the realities of the world around her. People like this need a harsh reality check, but sadly are unlikely to ever get it.

Really? You can't be serious.

For a $100 million I would happily get married to a rich girl, let her have my kids, then put up with her cheating on me and then act all embarrassed when the media comes out that she cheated on me. Yeah... because I'm earning it.

For that kind of money R. Kelley could fart in my dinner tonight.
