Tiger Woods’s ex-girlfiend Erica Herman has accused him of sexual harassment and forcing her to either sign a non-disclosure agreement or be fired from her job according to a report in the Daily Mail.

Herman was the girlfriend of the fifteen-time major champion for almost six years and she filed a court document on Friday through her attorney Benjamin Hobas.

The 38-year-old’s filing is the latest in her case against Woods over an NDA she claims has been wrongly enforced upon her.


Herman alleges that Woods pursued a sexual relationship with her while she was an employee at his South Florida restaurant and forced her to sign an NDA.

In the document obtained by, Herman’s attorney, Hodas, wrote, ‘Mr. Woods was Ms. Herman’s boss.

‘On Mr. Woods’s own portrayal of events, he imposed an NDA on her as a condition to keep her job when she began having a sexual relationship with him. A boss imposing different work conditions on his employee because of their sexual relationship is sexual harassment.’

Hodas’ document added: ‘Tiger Woods, the internationally renowned athlete and one of the most powerful figures in global sports, decided to pursue a sexual relationship with his employee, then — according to him — forced her to sign an NDA about it or else be fired from her job.

‘And, when he became disgruntled with their sexual relationship, he tricked her into leaving her home, locked her out, took her cash, pets, and personal possessions, and tried to strong-arm her into signing a different NDA.’

The case was filed in march to void the NDA where Herman accused Woods of sexually abusing her.

Herman also filed a lawsuit last October against the Jupiter Island Irerevocable Homestead Trust for $30 million which is the legal owner of the mansion where the pair resided.
