Tiger Woods’ ex-girlfriend Erica Herman has admitted she was never the victim of sexual abuse by the golfer and dropped her legal action against him.

Herman, a former manager at Woods’ Jupiter restaurant tried to sue him over an NDA she claimed she was forced to sign at the beginning of their relationship, but has stated that she was never the victim of sexual abuse or harassment by Woods or any of his agents in their five years together.

Herman has filed an official notice to dismiss her appeal against the NDA according to People and her appeal was dismissed by order of the court on Tuesday.

Herman had initially claimed that the NDA was not enforceable under the Speak Our act and that Woods had sexually abused her without revealing any details.

Her attorney argued that the 15-time major champion imposed an NDA on her as a condition to keep her job when the sexual relationship between the pair began.

In October, she filed an additional $30 million lawsuit against the Jupiter Island Irrevocable Homestead Trust, the legal owner of his mansion in Hobe Sound where the two lived together.

She claimed Woods tricked her into leaving the $40 million Florida mansion where they had lived for six years following their breakup in October 2022.

Circuit Judge Elizabeth Metzger labelled Herman’s sexual abuse allegations as “vague and threadbare.”

“Herman has had the opportunity (to) provide factual specificity for any claim relating to sexual assault or sexual harassment, however, she has not done so,” Metzger wrote as part of her 11-page opinion.
