Tiger Woods' Ex Elin Nordegren Is Single Again

Ezra Shaw/Getty Images(PALM BEACH, Fla.) -- Tiger Woods' ex Elin Nordegren is single again.

According to People magazine, Nordegren broke off her relationship with financier Jamie Dingman in January.

“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 of Nordegren told the magazine.

The pair were first linked last summer. Dingman, the son of billionaire Michael Dingman, president of international investments firm Shipston Group Ltd., manages his father’s business in China. He and Nordegren’s pro golfer ex-husband reportedly share something in common -- a fling with former nightlife hostess Rachel Uchitel.

Nordegren lives with her two children in North Palm Beach, Fla., and is a part-time college student working on her psychology degree.

Rachel Uchitel to Sue 'New York Post' for 9/11 Story

Jeff Kravitz/FilmMagic(NEW YORK) -- Rachel Uchitel isn’t “almost happy” about how 9/11 killed her fiance.

The former nightclub hostess and Tiger Woods mistress is fuming about a story put out by the New York Post’s Page Six Magazine that quotes her as saying she’s “almost happy” her relationship with investment banker James Andrew O’Grady ended on 9/11 when O’Grady died in the World Trade Center attacks. She first made headlines in the days after 9/11, when the New York Post published a photo of her in front of Bellevue Hospital grieving for her fiance.

“I believe Andy was meant to die because he was too good,” the magazine quoted Uchitel, 36, as saying. “I’m almost happy it ended the way it did because I’ve learned so many lessons from him. It would have been tragic if we got into fights and then divorced.”

Uchitel’s publicist told ABC News that the ex-VIP hostess was misquoted and plans to sue.

“They took Rachel’s comments from another article wholly and completely out of context,” Uchitel’s publicist said in an email. “Rachel is demanding an apology and a retraction.  She is seeking legal counsel to protect her rights and to make sure this does not happen again.”

A representative for the Post did not immediately respond to ABCNews.com’s requests for comment.

A video featured on the Post’s website along with the story shows Uchitel reflecting on 9/11 but doesn’t show her saying anything that’s quoted in the story.

“I always miss Andy, that’s never changed in 10 years,” she says in the video. “It’s something that I experience as a loss every single day.”

Rachel Uchitel Fuming About Tiger Woods Hush Money

Jeff Kravitz/FilmMagic(LOS ANGELES) -- Rachel Uchitel may not be the biggest fan of Tiger Woods right now. According to TMZ.com, the former nightclub hostess returned a large sum of the $10 million she received to keep quiet about her affair with Tiger Woods. But now she's having second thoughts and may sue her lawyer, Gloria Allred, for malpractice.

Allred negotiated the settlement, which included a confidentiality clause stating that Uchitel could not talk about Woods and that if she violated the agreement, she would have to return the money and could also be sued by Woods, according to TMZ.com.

Sources told TMZ.com that by speaking with the entertainment news site and appearing on VH1's Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew to treat an "addiction to love," attorneys for Woods believe Uchitel was in violation of the agreement terms, despite never mentioning Woods on the show.

Tiger Woods’ Mistress Lands Docudrama Deal

Sam Greenwood/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- Former Tiger Woods mistress Rachel Uchitel has scored a deal with the Atlas Media Group for a docudrama based on her life and her new career as a private investigator.

Uchitel tells The New York Post, "I wasn’t interested until Atlas came along and agreed with me that the only way to do something was if it was a 'true' reality show.  I'm doing PI work now and it's stuff that would make for great TV."

Even though she has experience with cheating spouses, Uchitel says her investigations will concentrate on missing people, child custody issues, and financial forensic work.

No word yet on which cable channel will air the reality series.

Tiger Woods' Former Mistress Now a Private Eye?

Arnaldo Magnani/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- Rachel Uchitel, one of Tiger Woods’ reported mistresses, is launching a new career as a private detective.

The 36-year-old Uchitel tells the New York Post she may have experience with married men who cheat, but she’s more interested in finding missing persons.

Uchitel says, “Obviously, people want to go down the ‘cheating’ road and assume it’s all about me finding cheating spouses, but I’m less interested in that. I’m more interested in...missing people, cold cases.”  She adds, “I want to solve cases for the underdog, for people who don’t have a voice.”

The Post reports Uchitel was trained at the L.A.-based DGA Detectives Academy, and will be employed at owner Dale Gustafson’s private eye agency, which has associates in Las Vegas and New York.  Gustafson says Uchitel is very smart and her final exam score of 97 was third-best amongst hundreds who have graduated from the school over the past 15 years.

Gustafson says Woods' former lover is “very meticulous and careful, and good with details,” adding, “she’s not afraid to ask the hard questions.”

Uchitel also underwent weapons training in Los Angeles and has applied for a gun license in both California and New York.  She says she can handle the powerful .357 Magnum but prefers a 9mm pistol, telling the Post, “I love the Glock.”
