DailyMail.com has contacted lawyers for Woods and Herman.
Herman is suing the Jupiter Island Irrevocable Homestead Trust, which owns the Hobe Sound home in which she lived with Woods for six years while they were together.
The complaint says that she provided “valuable services” at Woods’ request as part of an “oral lease.”
Herman says this gave him the right to live on the property for a “certain period of time.”
The suit, filed as a trust litigation, states: ‘All expenses related to (Herman’s) residence were paid in full by the defendant or his privates.
‘This contract was performed in its entirety for the six-year period prior to the events giving rise to this lawsuit.
“The duties performed by the claimant were extensive and of an extraordinary nature in light of the general circumstances and environment in which she lived.”
According to Herman, there were five years left on the oral agreement for her to live on the property when Woods engaged in “prohibited practices.”
The pair were last seen together at the US Open in August 2022.
In the document, her attorneys said that after Woods ended the relationship, Herman was told she was “no longer welcome” at the property.
The document says this led to “severe, actual and consequential emotional damage” to Herman and was done “intentionally, knowingly and knowingly.”
The complaint states: ‘Specifically, through deceit, Defendant’s agents convinced Plaintiff to pack a suitcase for a short vacation and, when she arrived at the airport, told her that she had been dropped off outside the residence.
They then informed her that she was not allowed to return, and without a lawyer to help her through this emotional time, they used a lawyer to confront her with proposals to resolve the crime they were committing.
The defendant’s agents attempted to justify their illegal conduct by paying for a hotel room and certain expenses for a short period of time, after they had locked (Herman) out of his home and scared him not to return.
‘Since then, the plaintiff has continuously demanded to be allowed to return to her home, but the plaintiff’s agents have refused.
‘Worse yet, Defendant’s agents removed Plaintiff’s personal belongings from her residence and misappropriated more than $40,000 in cash belonging to her, making libelous and defamatory allegations about how she obtained the money.’
Herman is suing the Jupiter Island Irrevocable Homestead Trust, which owns the Hobe Sound home in which she lived with Woods for six years while they were together. Hobe Sound, which is located on the island of Jupiter, has been home to former presidents and notable personalities.
Herman claims he is worth more than $30 million due to the home’s “substantial monthly rental value.”
Woods recently filed a motion to compel arbitration and stay the claims.
In the document, his attorneys said that after Woods ended the relationship, Herman was told she was “no longer welcome” at the property, where the golfer lives with his two children.
Woods’ lawyers say Herman signed a confidentiality agreement that is included in the filing but is heavily redacted. He states that any dispute must be overseen by an independent arbitrator instead of the courts.
The document says that when Herman lived in the house he was a “guest” of Woods, noting that the couple never married.
Woods’ lawyers say he broke off relations on October 13, 2022, and that his claim that he wants to live at the property is “directly adverse” to the interests of Woods and his children.
