Tiger Woods denies having tenancy agreement with ex Erica Herman as he hits back in $30m legal battle | The Sun
TIGER WOODS has denied having a tenancy agreement with his ex-girlfriend as he hits back in their bitter $30million legal spat.
Erica Herman is understood to be suing her former boyfriend after claiming he "tricked" and kicked her out of the Florida mansion they lived in.
She claims she was told to pack for a holiday but when she got to the airport was informed she had been locked out of the £41m property in Hobe Sound.
Herman, 39, is also suing the Jupiter Island Irrevocable Homestead Trust, which Woods controls, by saying he breached a verbal agreement to let her live there rent-free with his two children.
She insists there was still five years left of the housing arrangement when he ended the relationship in October 2022 and is demanding £25million to settle the feud.
But now Woods' lawyers state there was NO deal in place allowing Herman to share the golfer's home with him – and instead she was an "invited guest".

Who is golf legend Tiger Woods' girlfriend Erica Herman?
Herman filed a lawsuit against the golfing icon in an attempt to nullify a non-disclosure agreement she alleges Woods, 47, made her sign at the start of their five-year relationship.
Herman claims the NDA should be voided when there is evidence of assault or harassment.
TMZ reported a private trust run by the golfer is trying to "aggressively enforce" the NDA following the end of their relationship.
The pair were last seen in public together at the US Open tennis in August 2022, two months before their break-up.
Herman, though, was alongside Woods at the 2019 Masters, the sight of arguably the greatest of his 15 major golf victories, as well as his historic 80th PGA Tour win at East Lake, Georgia the previous year.
The pair were first pictured cosying up on the course at the Presidents Cup.
Erica – who managed his pop-up restaurant titled The Woods – was wearing a "player spouse" badge usually reserved for wives and girlfriends.
And they went officially public a month later in November 2017.
She was once harshly branded a "gold digger" who "chased Tiger like a puppy" but was later credited with saving the golf legend's life.
They remained together following Woods' horrific car crash that broke his leg and threatened to end his ability to walk, let alone return to the golf course.
Woods married Elin Nordegren in 2004 but they divorced in 2010 following his infidelity.
He has had many lovers since, including pornstars and nightclub hostesses.
In August 2017, the former world No1 announced he was splitting up with girlfriend Kristin Smith.
The Dallas-based personal stylist had thought the golfer was cheating on her and had broken down crying after his DUI arrest in the spring, reported Radar Online.
