Tiger Woods has been accused of sexual harassment by his ex-girlfriend Erica Herman, according to court documents.
Herman said it all happened when she was working for the professional golfer at his South Florida restaurant. She claimed that Woods pursued a sexual relationship with her and forced her to sign a non-disclosure agreement in order to keep her job.
According to CNN, in the documents that were filed on Friday (May 5), Herman’s attorney Benjamin Hobas stated, “Tiger Woods, the internationally renowned athlete and one of the most powerful figures in global sports, decided to pursue a sexual relationship with his employee, then – according to him – forced her to sign an NDA about it or else be fired from her job. And, when he became disgruntled with their sexual relationship, he tricked her into leaving her home, locked her out, took her cash, pets, and personal possessions, and tried to strong-arm her into signing a different NDA.”
“A boss imposing different work conditions on his employee because of their sexual relationship is sexual harassment,” Hobas added.
The document also alleges a “scheme” used against Herman last year where Woods asked her to pack for a weekend getaway to the Bahamas. She was allegedly driven to the airport and then was asked to speak to Woods’ attorney. “Then, Mr. Woods’s California lawyer, out of the blue, told her that she was not going anywhere, would never see Mr. Woods again, had been locked out of the house, and could not return,” the statement reads. “She would not even be able to see the children or her pets again.”
This news comes after Herman filed a lawsuit back in March seeking $30 million after she said Woods locked her out of his home when they broke up. She said that they had an “oral tenancy agreement,” which was supposed to allow her to live with him for at least five years after their split.
