A Woman Scorn: Tiger Wood’s Ex-Wife Takes Down the House–Literally!

I’ve seen my share of angry divorces in all my years as a marriage and family therapist, but this takes the cake. Angry spouses usually throw clothes out the door, pack boxes and ship them out and even remove furniture, but this is the first–bulldozing a 12 million dollar mansion. Yet, that is exactly what Tiger Wood’s ex-wife, Elin Nordegren, did to her North Palm Beach estate.

According to TMZ, Elin bought the 9000 square foot house right after her 100 million dollar settlement. Apparently, it wasn’t quite what she wanted.  So she mowed it down and hired a group of architects to build the house of her dreams on the island.

Was it therapeutic?

Did she do it just because she can?

Is she so rich that it doesn’t matter if she blows 12 million?

Is it a statement to Tiger?

Whatever the case (love your thoughts here), I can’t wrap my brain around the incredible waste this is, money or no money. To me, this simply speaks to the incredible excess of celebrity living and how out of touch most are with the rest of the people. Surely the house could have been used in some other way for someone else. I guess I am way too practical. I can’t even throw away an old sweater if I think someone else could use it.
