6. How did Erica Herman meet Tiger Woods?

According to The New York Post, restauranteur Erica Herman reportedly met Tiger Woods in 2015, working in a bar and studying at the University of Central Florida. Shortly after, she was asked to run Tiger’s restaurant in Jupiter, Fla., which opened the same year.

TvOverMind reports that Erica may have played a huge role in the crumbling of Tiger Woods’ previous relationships because she was eyeing the man for close to a decade. The outlet even suggests she may have started seeing the golfer while he was still married and since Kristin discovered Tiger’s affair with Erica in the short time they were together, it is unlikely that Elin did not know; after all, women are accomplished detectives.

Following Tiger’s split with ex-flame Kristin Smith in 2017, he and Erica made their relationship public in September with an outing in Jersey City.

Erica has been by Tiger’s side since 2017, especially following his horrific car accident in 2021. Erica attended many of Tiger’s golf competitions but has not been spotted with him since they attended the U.S. Open tennis tournament in August 2022. However, the pair reportedly remained together until a quiet breakup in October 2022 — or at least quiet until now.

She and Woods made their first public appearance in October 2017.

She wore a “player spouse” at the Jersey City golf tournament. Although sources claim that Tiger Woods may not be walking down the aisle any time son with anyone due to his experience with women, Erica is not waiting to cross the bridge when the couple gets to it. She has already dubbed herself Tiger’s spouse by putting on a “player spouse” badge that is usually reserved for the wives and partners of the golfers, during the Jersey City golf tournament.

Erica accompanied Woods to court in May 2017

Erica is ready to stand by her man and weather the storm. Even before we could tell whether she was in a serious relationship with Tiger, Erica was already showing Tiger Woods that he could count on her by accompanying him to court when he was charged with reckless driving in May 2017. Erica loved a man who at the time, was unlovable to many women, mostly because of his serial cheating. Still, apart from being a philanderer, Tiger was abusing drugs, according to USA Today, which he said were to manage his pain. He fell asleep while driving and failed sobriety tests but later disclosed that he was seeking professional help to manage his medication.


7. What happened between Tiger Woods and Eric Herman?

Though neither the golf legend nor Erica have commented on when they ended their relationship, it appears that the pair have not been publicly seen together since August 2022, when they were photographed attending the U.S. Open held at Flushing Meadows Corona Park in New York. 

However, in a December 2022 complaint obtained by In Touch, it was alleged that Tiger “informed” Erica he was breaking off their relationship in October that same year.

Erica Herman has filed two separate but entwined lawsuits against Tiger Woods.

According to court documents obtained by USA Today Sports, Erica Herman has filed two separate lawsuits against entities representing Tiger Woods. The first suit was filed in October 2022 against his homestead trust in Hobe Sound, Fla., which was created by Tiger in 2017 for himself and his children.

Erica alleges that following their breakup in October 2022, he “tricked” her into leaving their shared mansion under the guise of a vacation, only to lock her out when she arrived at the airport.

Erica is claiming damages of “more than $30 million” and said the trust and its agents “misappropriated $40,000 cash that belonged to her.” She also claims the trust made “scurrilous and defamatory allegations how she obtained the money.” In the lawsuit, Erica claimed to have an “oral tenancy agreement” to remain in their home for five additional years after residing in the home for six.

The second lawsuit, which Erica filed in March 2023, asks the court to nullify her 2017 non-disclosure agreement (NDA), which she signed when her relationship with Tiger began. Erica argues that the NDA “is not judicially enforceable in this case under the federal Speak Out Act,” according to Golf Digest.

The Speak Out Act prevents enforcing NDAs in the event of sexual assault and harassment. Erica has not made any specific allegations against Tiger, but that could potentially change with the dissolution of her NDA.

The court documents obtained by USA Today Sports read, “Because of the aggressive use of the Woods NDA against her by the Defendant and the trust under his control, the Plaintiff is unsure whether she may disclose, among other things, facts giving rise to various legal claims she believes she has. She is also currently unsure what other information about her own life she may discuss or with whom.”

Tiger’s team made a motion to dismiss Erica’s first lawsuit in November 2022, saying her claims weren’t valid because she wasn’t a “tenant” of the home as outlined in the “Residential Landlord Tenant Act,” according to ESPN. His representatives have not yet commented on her second lawsuit.

They were so close that they even ventured into business together, although it did not succeed. The couple broke up due to some personal differences.


9. Does Erica Herman have a child?

Per reports, Erica Herman does not have children of her own, however, she has become close to Tiger’s children.

Since she was set on getting into Tiger Woods’ home no matter the cost, it is only fair that she should accept whatever package comes with the man. Tiger’s children may have been introduced to several women, and Erica has joined the list. She started playing “mummy” to the kids after the two made their relationship official. Erica has become part of the family, and when Tiger went to the Bahamas with Sam and Charlie, Erica was not left behind. She even accompanies the children as they watch their father play.

10. What is Erica Herman’s net worth?

Although she has been labeled a gold-digger, Erica had some money of her own in net assets worth $500,000 as of 2018. Currently, per reports, Herman has a fortune of $1 million to $5 million. However, the amount cannot compare to the $1.1 billion that Tiger Woods has as revealed by Forbes; but then while Erica has had to hold down several jobs to make her money, Tiger Woods made his millions from endorsements, golf course design work and personal appearances.
