Tiger Woods’ ex-girlfriend Erica Herman has dropped her sexual assault allegations and an appeal against the 15-time major champion. 

Multiple reports in the US claim that Herman, the restaurant manager who dated Woods from 2017 to 2022, has filed a notice to drop the legal action made against him.

In the court documents filed to Florida‘s Fourth District Court of Appeal and obtained by PEOPLE, Herman said she “was never a victim of sexual harassment or sexual abuse at the hands of Tiger Woods or any of his agents, and it is her position that she never asserted a claim for such.”

Herman, who worked at The Woods Jupiter restaurant in Florida, had signed a non-disclosure agreement (NDA) when her relationship first started with the golfer in 2017.

The 38-year-old had initially alleged that Woods had forced to sign the NDA, which she was appealing to be released from.

But she filed a notice to dismiss that appeal, which was officially dismissed by the court on Tuesday .

Herman had signed a non-disclosure agreement (NDA) in 2017 at the start of her relationship with Woods, and she had sued to be released from the agreement.

She had attempted to void the NDA under the Speak Out Act, which allows a person to be released from the agreement if they have been a victim of sexual assault.

It was also argued by Herman’s attorney that the NDA had been “imposed on her as a condition to keep her job.”

But after levelling unspecified allegations of sexual harassment against Woods, her appeal to void the NDA was denied.

Circuit Judge Elizabeth Metzger ruled in May that Herman’s allegations were “vague and threadbare”, declaring that she did not “provide factual specificity for any claim relating to sexual assault or sexual harassment.”

Herman had also filed a separate lawsuit, suing the Jupiter Island Irrevocable Trust, the legal owner of Woods home in Florida where the couple lived before their split last October.

She was suing for $30million after alleging that Woods tricked her into leaving the home and locking her out, violating an “oral agreement” that she could live there for another five years.

Herman subsequently dropped the lawsuit and the case was dismissed in June.
