Tiger Woods’ ex-lover Erica Herman has sued the golf legend over a non-disclosure agreement (NDA) she claims she was “forced to sign.”
A non-disclosure agreement (NDA) is a legally binding contract that establishes a confidential connection between two parties.
She claimed that as a result of their divorce, she is now entitled to $30 million in compensation.
Woods was accused of unlawfully locking Herman out of their shared Florida house, according to court documents acquired by the Daily Mail.
According to TMZ, Herman stated that the NDA should be terminated if there is evidence of assault or harassment.
She cited the Speak Out Act which states: “an NDA is not enforceable if agreed to before a dispute involving sexual assault or sexual harassment.”
She alleged that a private trust administered by Woods is forcing her to comply with the arrangement.
Herman, who used to oversee Jupiter, Woods’ restaurant, also accused him of locking her out of his Florida residence.
The 38-year-old claimed the golf legend, 47, duped her into packing her bag for a “brief trip,” only to be told when she arrived at the airport that she had been thrown out.
Herman stated they had a “oral agreement” that she could reside at the home for eleven years, five of which she had left when their romance ended.
Herman used the word “trickery” in her legal filings, which she claims breaches the oral tenancy agreement and Florida law.
Herman and Woods began dating in August of 2017. After six years, they called it quits.
The ex-lovers have not been seen in public since the August 2022 US Open tennis event.
