Tiger Woods' ex-girlfriend has dropped her massive $30 million complaint that the golf legend didn't have the right to keep her out of his home after she claimed she had an “oral tenancy agreement.”
Erica Herman, Woods' 39-year-old ex-girlfriend, was seeking a huge payout over claims that she had the right to live in Woods' residence due to an agreement they had made that allegedly gave her another five years to live in the home despite their breakup.
In March 2023, documents showed that when Woods broke up with her, Herman said that “by trickery, agents of the Defendant convinced the Plaintiff 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.”
Herman said she was told she was not allowed to return to the residence, the same address as Woods, and was confronted “without legal counsel to aid in her in this emotional moment, they utilized a lawyer to confront her with proposals to resolve the wrongdoing they were in the midst of committing.”
TMZ reported that the original $30 million claim by Herman against Woods' trust was the "reasonable rental value" of her alleged remaining five years of tenancy.
Court documents obtained by the New York Post reportedly read, “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, and determination of whether her claims are subject to arbitration.”
Days before the notice of dismissal, Herman filed an appeal of a judge's decision to throw out her lawsuit that claimed Woods sexually harassed her. Herman allegedly argued that because Woods was her boss when she worked at his Jupiter Island restaurant, The Woods, their relationship constituted sexual harassment.
Herman reportedly sought the lifting of an NDA from 2017 for this matter, but the judge deemed the sexual misconduct claims “vague and threadbare" and ruled that the case be handled in private arbitration.
Woods' trust had initially brushed off Herman's claims with a statement that said, “In reality, Ms. Herman was invited to live in the Residence while she was in a relationship with her former boyfriend, Eldrick [Tiger] Woods, who continues to live in the Residence with his two children."
"After Mr. Woods recently terminated the relationship, Ms. Herman was advised that she was no longer welcome in the Residence," the statement added.
