- Erica Herman has been dating Tiger Woods for five years.
- She reportedly filed suits to nullify a non-disclosure agreement and to claim Tiger owes her $30M
- The move is sparking split rumors for the previously close couple.
Tiger Woods‘ girlfriend of five years Erica Herman claimed in a lawsuit filed in March 2023 that he owes her $30 million for locking her out of his home during an apparent October 2022 breakup. The complaint followed the news that Erica reportedly filed to nullify a non-disclosure agreement from her world-famous boyfriend. Both moves sparked breakup speculation — despite the fact that the supportive former restaurant manager had previously rushed to his bedside following the golf superstar’s harrowing rollover SUV crash on Feb. 23, 2021, that left him hospitalized.
Erica showed how she has been part of Tiger’s family at the PNC Tournament back in 2020, supporting the golfing legend and his son, Charlie. Erica joined Tiger’s ex-wife and Charlie’s mom, Elin Nordegren, at the event, where they watched on as the father-son duo took the green. Erica has also spent time with the former couple’s daughter, Sam. Tiger and Erica appeared to be just as strong as ever in the years leading up to the recent bombshell news.
Now, as split rumors swirl, learn more about Erica Herman with the five facts below.
How Long Have Tiger & Erica Been Together?
Tiger and Erica began dating in 2017, and they met through work! Erica used to manage one of Tiger’s restaurants back in Florida, according to Golf.com. Their first public appearance was at the President’s Cup in 2017, in which Erica rocked a bright red polo and khaki shorts to the tournament in Jersey City, NJ.
But five years into their seemingly low-key relationship, on March 8, 2023, Page Six reported that the 38-year-old filed to have her non-disclosure agreement from the pro golfer nullified — raising a red flag that the relationship is headed toward a rapid end. Per the outlet, she also sought to better understand whether the current NDA is “valid or enforceable,” and cited two federal laws that allow for nullification of an NDA if sexual assault or harassment claims are raised.
