(Newser) – Greg Norman’s former wife would still be his current wife, she says, if not for tennis star Chris Evert’s brazen pursuit of the former World No. 1. “She came after him. I have never seen anything like it,” Laura Andrassy tells the Daily Mail, saying Evert pursued Norman “in front of me, like I didn’t exist.” Andrassy pocketed a $100-million divorce settlement after "the Shark" took up with Evert.

Andrassy says she considered Evert a friend before the affair. Evert was then married to Norman’s best friend, US skiing champion Andy Mill, who feels betrayed, too. “A year and a half ago I'd have taken a bullet for this guy,” said Mill. “I didn't realize he was going to pull the trigger.”
