Tiger Woods’ NDA – Will It Hold Up to Ex-girlfriend Erica Herman’s Legal Opposition?


Tiger Woods again finds himself in some personal trouble away from the links. Recent court filings show that Erica Herman, Mr. Woods’ ex-girlfriend, is pursuing legal avenues to nullify their non-disclosure agreement ("NDA") in light of an ongoing tenancy lawsuit between her and the golf legend’s team.

When the couple became official in 2017, Ms. Herman was asked to sign an NDA, a common practice amongst high-net-worth or high-profile individuals such as Mr. Woods. Not surprising given the extreme media scrutiny Mr. Woods faced in 2009 after news of his infidelity to then-wife Elin Nordegren leaked to the press. In the days that followed the leak, Mr. Woods was involved in a car crash and a tabloid frenzy of speculation as other women alleged that they too had been involved with the golf superstar.

In October of 2022, when Mr. Woods and Ms. Herman called it quits after almost six years together, Ms. Herman filed a $30 million lawsuit against a trust, Jupiter Island Irrevocable Homestead (“the trust”), owned by Mr. Woods, alleging she was wrongfully removed from the home she inhabited during the course of their relationship.
