Greg Norman’s former wife says the expatriate Australian golfer has never apologised to her about his relationship with retired tennis star Chris Evert.
Norman and his wife of 25 years, Laura Andrassy, divorced in 2006.
In June last year, he married Evert in a lavish $2 million ceremony in which the couple rented an island in the Bahamas.
Speaking to the Nine Network from her Florida home, Ms Andrassy said Norman had never discussed his new relationship.
“He’s never told me about it. Obviously I found out a lot about it through the press and through my children at times, but he’s never admitted anything to me, much less apologised,” she said.
She said Norman and Evert met in 2003, when she was married to then husband Andy Mills.
The couples lived in the same neighbourhood and became firm friends, but Ms Andrassy said she became suspicious of Evert’s intentions when she and Mr Mills visited the Normans’ ranch in Colorado in August 2005.
The split with Norman came “all of a sudden” the following month, she said.
“Things were great, then next month – whoa,” she said.
“She (Evert) said they were drawn to each other, that they had to be with each other. I don’t know when that started.”
Ms Andrassy received $US100 million ($A162 million) of Norman’s estimated $US300 million ($A487 million) fortune in their divorce.
Ms Andrassy described Evert as “predatory” but said she had no feelings for the former Wimbledon champion.
“Oddly enough, she has never affected me. I know lot of people think that’s crazy, but this is between Greg and I,” she said.
“My hurt comes from Greg, nothing to do with her.”
When asked if she had respect for Norman, she smiled and asked: “Do I have to answer that?”
The Nine Network confirmed Ms Andrassy was not paid for the interview.
