Tiger Woods and his longtime girlfriend Erica Herman have reportedly split, and she is now suing the 15-time major champion over an NDA signed in 2017. Herman filed a lawsuit that allegedly accused the golfer of locking her out of their home.
According to a court report from USA Today Sports, the restaurant manager filed a lawsuit against the Homestead Trust controlled by Tiger Woods seeking more than $30 million in damages.
Erica Herman mentioned in her statement that those working for Woods took $40,000 in cash that belonged to her and removed her belongings from Woods’ mansion.
Tiger Woods and Erica Herman signed an “oral lease” that allows Herman to live in their house for 11 years. But it’s only been six years since their relationship, which means she’ll be living in the Florida home for another five years.
Herman did not sue Woods directly, but she dropped the bomb on the trust owned by the golf legend. She is trying to lift the non-disclosure agreement and is ready to share her experience throughout her relationship with Tiger Woods.
The couple reportedly went their separate ways a few months ago, but have not confirmed the breakup. However, Erica missed the Genesis Invitational that ended in February, where Woods competed and finished T47.
Tiger Woods’ Response to Erica Herman’s Lawsuit
Erica Herman and Tiger Woods have been together since 2017 and in 2019 she moved in to live with the golf star and his two children in Jupiter. The couple had a beautiful relationship, but out of the blue, breakup rumors made headlines.
The couple is best known for keeping their relationship a low-key affair. Before Herman’s proceedings, there were no signs that the two had split. However, they have apparently called it quits.
The golf pro responded to allegations that Herman himself removed items from his house. He also explained that she said she is not coming back. Still, the couple hasn’t said a word publicly yet.
Previously, Erica Herman expressed her excitement that Woods would compete at the Masters in 2023. Interestingly, the PGA Tour player appreciated Herman’s efforts in being by his side when he was involved in a horrific car accident in 2021. In an interview with Golf Digest, he said he said:
“There was a point where I wouldn’t say it was 50/50, but it was close to it if I was going to walk out of that hospital with one leg.”
“Once I (kept it), I’d test and see if I still had my hands. So even in the hospital I’d have Erica and Rob throw me something. Throw me anything.”
Tiger Woods is not very lucky when it comes to love. He was married to Elin Nordegren for a few years before the model found out about his many affairs and she and Tiger then went their separate ways. The scandal brought much humiliation to Woods. However, he made a public apology for his actions and moved on with his life.
