Tiger Woods reportedly convinced his ex-WAG partner to pack her suitcase for a holiday – and then locked her out of the house.
Woods' former partner, Erica Herman is said to be seeking $30million from the golf legend for using "trickery" to oust her from their shared home in Hobe Sound, Florida, amid their recent split, which has spilled into a bitter legal row.
Herman started legal proceedings against Woods in October after alleging he used representatives to persuade her to pack for a short vacation, only to find out she'd been duped and locked out of the $48m home when she reached the airport, according to court documents obtained by The Post.

She claims Woods' agents told her she had been locked out, 'in violation of the oral tenancy agreement and in violation of Florida law'. After being told the damning news, Herman alleged Woods proceeded to 'pay for her stay at a hotel for a period of time, while scaring her from returning to the property'.
Herman also claimed members of Woods' team took $40,000 from her and made “scurrilous and defamatory allegations” about how she had got it in the first place.

But she insisted in the landlord filing that the estranged couple had an "oral agreement stating she could live at the mansion for 11 years," and alleged there's still five years left on their initial arrangement. And Herman's seeking the eye-watering amount of damages based on the time left on the verbal tenancy agreement, the court papers revealed.
However, Woods' team rebuked Herman's allegations and claimed she was the one who left the house and packed her belongings when he told her "she was no longer welcome". They argued Herman can't be deemed a tenant as tenancy agreements in Florida are only valid for under a year.
Despite the ongoing legal row starting in October, news of the couple's split was only made public on Wednesday by The Sun. And in a separate lawsuit, Herman is seeking to void a non-disclosure agreement she claims Woods made her sign when they began dating in 2017.
The publication reported Herman claims the NDA should be quashed when there is evidence of assault or harassment. And although there's no assault allegations aimed at Woods, TMZ detailed how a private trust run by the golfer is trying to "aggressively enforce" the NDA following the demise of the relationship.
But Woods' legal team insisted the NDA required the bickering pair sort out their differences by arbitration, instead of in court, in a subsequent legal motion filed in October. It read: "By suing the Trust rather than Mr. Woods, Ms. Herman seeks to evade her obligation to adjudicate her claims in a confidential arbitration and, instead, seeks to gain leverage by litigating her disputes with Mr. Woods in a public forum."
Woods' reaction prompted Herman's lawyer to ask the court if the "arbitration agreement was enforceable because, under assault and harassment law, the case shouldn’t be settled in private," in January – leading to the latest request to nullify the NDA this week.
Herman was by Woods' side when he won the 2019 Masters, plus she was present for his 80th PGA Tour win at East Lake, Georgia the year before. But there was no sight of her when Woods recently caused controversy by handing Justin Thomas a tampon at the Genesis Invitational.
