Tiger Woods' ex-girlfriend Erica Herman has filed a lawsuit against Woods for damages of over $30 million. Herman has asked a judge in Florida to cancel a non-disclosure agreement (NDA) she signed with him, Erica’s lawyer has cited a new law limiting the NDAs in sexual harassment and assault cases.
According to the lawsuit, Erica Herman claims that the homestead trust controlled by Woods in Hobe Sound, Florida and its agents stole $40,000 cash belonging to her. The lawyers also claim that defamatory allegations were made about Erica Herman and the method she obtained the money.
Erica Herman also filed a separate complaint against Woods and where she has requested a release from her NDA with him. She argues that the NDA cannot be enforced under the federal Speak Out Act. The lawsuit is about the domestic dispute between Woods and Herman which came up in court after the golfing star broke up with her in October and had her locked out of their seaside mansion on the Treasure Coast, as per reports.
Herman's suit alleges that "agents" for Woods scammed her to leave the mansion last year by telling her to prepare for a vacation. Then after she arrived at the airport, they told her she had been locked out of her residence in violation of the oral tenancy agreement and Florida law.
"By trickery, agents of the defendant (Woods) convinced the plaintiff (Herman) to pack a suitcase for a short vacation and, when she arrived at the airport, they told her she had been locked out of her residence," the court filing said. Herman's lawyers claimed that Woods also violated of an "oral tenancy agreement" that permitted her to live in the mansion which is reportedly worth $54 million and hence are suing for damages.
