Tiger Woods splits from girlfriend of six years Erica Herman as she sues him over NDA she was ‘forced to sign’: wants it struck down, cites sexual assault clause
Tiger Woods split from his girlfriend Erica Herman when she took him to court over an NDA that she claims she was forced to sign, according to a new report.
Woods, 47, and Herman, 38, began dating in 2017 but have not been seen together in public since the US Open tennis tournament in August last year.
Now, according to legal documents obtained by TMZHerman says the NDA is being misapplied to him, citing the Speak Out Act.
The Act provides that an NDA is unenforceable if it is agreed to prior to a dispute involving sexual assault or sexual harassment.
And Herman said in the documents that a private trust run by Woods is pressuring her to keep quiet and join the NDA.

The couple, pictured at a golf tournament in Atlanta, Georgia, in 2018, have now split after six years.
Herman alleges that she was forced to sign the NDA early in the couple’s relationship, in August 2017.
TMZ said Woods’ ex was “eager to share her experiences” with the golf icon. It is unclear if Herman is making any accusations.
Dailymail.com has reached out to Woods’ agent for comment.
Woods played just nine competitive rounds in 2022 after a major car accident left him with fractures to both his tibia and fibula, as well as ankle damage that nearly required amputation.
Nonetheless, he still won the PGA Tour’s ‘Player Impact Program’ last season, taking home $10 million for his popularity.
The 15-time major winner birdied the last three holes to post an incredible two-under first round at the Genesis Invitational in February in his return to competitive action after seven months out of injury.
Woods and Herman were together for six years after they were first seen at the Presidents Cup in New Jersey in October 2017.
She had worked as the general manager at the restaurant, a pop-up at the Genesis Open at The Riviera Country Club in Los Angeles, California, owned by her boyfriend, and once they started dating, the two became inseparable, with Erica regularly supporting him in golf tournaments

Rumors began to circulate about them after Erica was seen wearing a ‘gamer’s wife’ badge, which is usually given to wives and girlfriends.
The following month, Tiger and Erica went public with their relationship.
The couple reportedly lived together in Jupiter, Florida.
Woods shares his two sons, Sam, 14, and Charlie, 13, with his ex-wife Elin Nordegren.
The couple married in 2004 but divorced in 2010 following reports of their infidelities the previous year.
