Tiger Woods' ex shows us just how rich she is...

  • $12 million mansion was purchased just last year
  • Divorced mother reportedly wanted a fresh start
Tiger Woods' ex shows us just how rich she is...

Elin Nordegren is starting over. Again.

The former wife of Tiger Woods has demolished the $12.3-million oceanfront mansion she purchased just last year, according to news reports. The home was chock-full of amenities: 17,000-square feet. Eight bathrooms. In-ground pool. Elevator. So, why did she do it?

Crouching Tiger, hidden meaning? Not quite.

The divorced mother of two young children simply wanted something bigger and better, a dream mansion, according to the Palm Beach Post. "It was a beautiful place, incredible landscaping, fantastic ocean frontage," Realtor John True told the Post. "I heard that the original plan was to renovate. But once they started, I heard they decided to tear it down."

Don't worry: Woods was not in the home when the wrecking ball came crashing. The world’s former No. 1 golfer was probably somewhere around the Jupiter, Florida, estate he purchased last year.

Nordegren, 32, has been known to wreck some stuff. In November 2009, in Windermere, Florida, she used a golf club to break the rear window of a Cadillac Escalade to help extricate her husband after he crashed his SUV into a fire hydrant and tree.

The saga followed allegations from several women that Woods had carried on affairs with them. Woods and Nordegren finalized their divorce in August 2010.

Nordegren has hired a high-priced architect and will be requiring all workers to sign confidentiality agreements, according to TMZ.
