Tiger Woods' former girlfriend has admitted that she was never sexually assaulted by the golf legend in an attempt to invalidate the non-disclosure agreement (NDA) she signed when they first began dating.
According to CBS News, Erica Herman filed the documents after she dropped her $30 million lawsuit against Woods and the trust that owns his Florida mansion.
The notice was filed by Herman in Florida's Fourth District Court of Appeal noting that she's dropping her appeal to nullify the NDA and "that she was never a victim of sexual harassment or sexual abuse at the hands of Tiger Woods or any of his agents."
“In dismissing this action, Erica Herman states that she was never a victim of sexual harassment or sexual abuse at the hands of Tiger Woods or any of his agents and it is her position that she has never asserted such a claim," wrote attorney Benjamin Hodas. Previously, he claimed that Woods sexually harassed his client on several occasions.
J.B. Murray, Woods’ lawyer said that Herman’s accusations were “utterly meritless” at the time
At a court hearing in May, Herman said that she didn’t remember if she signed the NDA, and if she did, it was because she claimed that Woods would fire her job at The Woods Jupiter restaurant if she didn’t.
In 2017, Heraman signed the NDA which stated that she could not share any details of their relationship in public and was required to “take any legal disagreements with Woods to private arbitration and not court.”
Circuit Judge Elizabeth Metzger denied Herman's attempt to nullify the nondisclosure agreement describing her 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 in her ruling.
Woods and Herman were in a relationship from 2017 until October 2022, according to reports.
