Tiger Woods’s ex-girlfriend, Erica Herman, is suing the golfer for allegedly forcing her out of the house they lived in for six years.
According to TMZ Sports, the two were sharing a property in Hobe Sound, Fla., where the ex-girlfriend claims she offered “valuable services” for living there rent-free.
According to Herman, the two split up last autumn after Woods duped her into believing she was going on vacation.
According to Yahoo News, she alleges a driver drove her to the airport, where she was told she was “locked out” of the house and would not be able to return.
Herman is now requesting $30 million in compensatory rent money, claiming she had an “oral tenancy agreement” with Woods that should have kept her there for five more years after the breakup.
The case was filed against Tiger’s trust, which owns the property.
According to Herman’s attorneys, the $30 million figure was derived from the “reasonable rental value” of the mansion for the five remaining years agreed upon.
Tiger’s camp maintains that no such oral agreement existed and that Herman was just residing there as his girlfriend.
Herman also claims that more than $40,000 in her own money was taken from the house after she was evicted.
She is hoping that a court will declare that the NDA she signed is unenforceable, citing a federal provision that provides that persons are entitled to violate NDAs in circumstances involving sexual misbehavior or harassment.
Thus yet, it’s unclear whether any sexual misbehavior or harassment actually occurred between the two.
