Tiger Woods Labels Erica Herman Jilted Ex in Response to Her Lawsuit
The pro golfer insists there’s no reason that the non-disclosure agreement, which Erica signed in 2017, should be nullified because he never committed any sexual wrongdoing.
AceShowbiz –Tiger Woods has clapped back at his ex Erica Herman after she filed a lawsuit to terminate an NDA. He slammed the former restaurant manager, calling her a “jilted ex-girlfriend” in response to her request to nullify the non-disclosure agreement over a sexual assault clause.
In documents filed on Monday, March 13 by Tiger’s attorney Christopher J. Hubman, the PGA Tour winner insists that Erica has no right to invoke the federal Speak Out Act, which allows someone to be removed from an NDA if a dispute involving sexual assault or sexual harassment arises following the initial agreement, because she’s “not a victim of sexual assault or abuse.”
The documents allege that Erica is “a jilted ex-girlfriend who wants to publicly litigate specious claims in court, rather than honor her commitment to arbitrate disputes in a confidential arbitration proceeding.” The docs go on to state, “Ms. Herman’s position is utterly meritless… It is a transparent abuse of the judicial process that undermines the purpose of the federal statute and those whom the statute seeks to protect.”
Erica never accused Tiger of any sexual wrongdoing. In fact, she checked the box for “NO” when asked “does this case involve allegations of sexual abuse” in her fillings.
Tiger and Erica reportedly broke up in October 2022 after around six years of dating. In her lawsuit filed last week in the Circuit Court of the 19th Judicial Circuit in Martin County, Florida, she asks to be removed from the NDA she signed in August 2017, which she believes should be voided due to the Speak Out Act, which protects victims of sexual assault or harassment.
She claims, “Because of the aggressive use of the Woods NDA against her by the Defendant and the trust under his control, the Plaintiff is unsure whether she may disclose, among other things, facts giving rise to various legal claims she believes she has. She is also currently unsure what other information about her own life she may discuss or with whom. There is therefore an active dispute between the Plaintiff and the Defendant for which the Plaintiff needs a clarifying declaration from the court.”
