Greg Norman has been embroiled in more marriages (3) than wins in major championships (2). The former Australian golfer has lived a tempestuous personal life, with two marriages down the drain. His current partner, Kirsten Kutner, has remained by his side since 2010. But if the words of Norman’s first wife, Laura Andrassy, are to be believed, his relationship with Kutner dates back many years prior to the eventual marriage.
Laura Andrassy reveals Greg Norman’s secret relationship with his current wife
In an interview shortly after the Aussie superstar took his oath for the third time, his first wife, Laura Andrassy, decided to spill some beans on the newlyweds. Norman was initially married to Andrassy in 1981 and shares two children, daughter Morgan Leigh and son Gregory Junior.
The former couple went through a high-profile divorce case in 2007 after more than 25 years of marriage. The Aussie golfer allegedly paid a settlement of $120 million to Andrassy for her muted response to the whole affair.
The world was amazed by Norman’s swift divorce and marriage to his second wife and tennis star Chris Evert. However, barely 15 months later, he shocked the world with his divorce, and later, a surprising marriage to Kirsten Kutner.
However, with Norman exchanging vows for the third time, Andrassy couldn’t afford to keep mum. She revealed that Kutner and Norman were close friends ever since her marriage – the pair were secretly seeing each other for at least two years.
However, it all came crashing down when Andrassy intercepted a phone call between the two in 1995. She expropriated a landline from her Florida mansion between Norman and Kutner planning to meet up.
Greg Norman decided to end the secret relationship for the sake of his children
When confronted, Norman decided to pull the plug. He chose to side with Andrassy, to save his marriage and the future of his children, believing it was the right thing to do as a parent.
But the couple eventually divorced, and according to Andrassy, it has been a difficult trajectory for her children. “It’s difficult for my children…” she said. “They’ve been through enough, and I really want to keep them from dealing with anything to do with their father.”
“There is a lot to the story,” she further added. “It does have something to do with me, but it doesn’t have anything to do with me anymore – and I’ve moved on.”
