Tiger Woods sued by ex-girlfriend Erica Herman over domestic dispute, nondisclosure agreement
Tiger Woods’ ex-girlfriend, Erika Herman, has filed two lawsuits against parties representing the 15-time major champion. Herman is seeking $30 million in damages due to a domestic dispute, as well as the termination of a non-disclosure agreement she signed when their relationship began in 2017.
