38-year-old Erica Herman was living with golf legend Tiger Woods for six years in Florida until she was “tricked” by Woods’ team to pack a small bag for a “short vacation.”

When she arrived at the airport, she learned that she had been locked out of her residence.

Now Herman is suing Woods for $30 million, claiming “severe” emotional damage. She also says Woods took $40,000 of her money and made “scurrilous and defamatory allegations” about how she obtained the money.

Herman claims there were five years left on that oral agreement, but Woods used “trickery” to make her leave.

“By trickery, agents of the Defendant convinced the Plaintiff to pack a suitcase for a short vacation and, when she arrived at the airport, they told her she had been locked out of her residence,” the court documents read.

Herman has been at the side of Woods, 47, for half a dozen years, most recently helping him recover from a severe car accident that could have ended his life.

The golfer’s now-former girlfriend also made some shocking allegations in the documents as she tries to void a non-disclosure agreement that she claims she was forced to sign. Under a question that read, “Does this case involve allegations of sexual abuse?” Herman ticked the box for “yes.”

The filing also says she provided “valuable services” at Woods’ request as part of an “oral tenancy agreement.” The lawsuit, filed as a trust litigation, says: “All expenses that related to her residency were fully paid by the defendant or its privies.”

The lawsuit says that at the airport, agents of Woods “informed her she was not allowed to return and, without legal counsel to aid her in this emotional moment, utilized a lawyer to confront her with proposals to resolve the wrongdoing they were in the midst of committing.”
