Legendary golfer Tiger Woods has been out of action from some major tournaments post his horrific accident. However, he might not have taken the golf course, he has been in the headlines. In a new instance, the holder of 82 career PGA Tour wins, Woods has been in news after been challenged by ex-girlfriend Erica Herman.
In the latest update, Woods’ ex-girlfriend Erica has dropped her lawsuit against the PGA Tour star, seeking USD 30 million. The 39-year-old has reportedly dismissed the case pending result of the appeal of a judge’s order to throw out a separate lawsuit, as per the documents obtained by the New York Post.
Herman, 39, had filed a USD 30 million lawsuit in October against Jupiter Island Irrevocable Homestead Trust, which is the legal owner of Woods’ mansion in Florida, where the two of them reportedly lived together. The 39-year-old alleged that the golf icon tricked her into leaving the Florida mansion.
Herman had first filed a suit against Woods’ estate in the fall of 2022, complaining that he violated the Landlord Tenant Act. She claimed that both her and Woods had an “oral tenancy agreement” giving her the right to live at the house, further claiming that she still had five years remaining on that agreement.
A hearing on the same was scheduled for August, but a court document filed on June 29 announced that it has been cancelled after Herman’s dismissal of suit. “The Plaintiff, ERICA HERMAN, by and through her undersigned counsel, hereby dismisses without prejudice her Complaint, filed on October 26, 2022, pending resolution of the appeal in Herman v. Woods,” the filing read.
It is to be noted that Herman signed the NDA in 2017 when she was an employee at the Woods’ Jupiter Island restaurant, The Woods and the two began dating. However, she started working at The Woods in 2014.
