Court documents reveal that Herman claims that Woods and his trust used “trouble” to push her out of the house, with members of his trust going so far as to to convince her to go on vacation to get her away.
The documents say Herman was told to “pack a suitcase for a short vacation” but “when she arrived at the airport, they told her she was locked out of her residence, violates an oral tenancy agreement and violates Florida law. .”
The documents also allege that members of Woods’ trust took her personal belongings from the home and took US$40,000 (about $60,700) in money belonging to her before making “slanderous and defamatory allegations about how she got i the money.”

Herman pushed back against Woods, saying the couple had a “verbal agreement” that she could stay at home for 11 years. She still had five years left on this agreement when Woods decided to end their relationship last year
Based on the five years Herman says she had left to live in the home, she now wants about $US30 million (about $45.5 million) from Woods’ trust.
But the publication reports that Woods’ attorney has argued that oral tenancy agreements are only valid for less than a year under Florida law.
The attorney also said Herman was the one who removed her belongings from the Jupiter home after Woods broke things off.

Woods’ lawyer has also argued that the tenancy issue should be discussed through private arbitration, rather than in court, and accused Herman of trying to “gain leverage by raising her disputes with Mr Woods in a public forum.”
On January 19, Herman’s attorney questioned whether a settlement was possible, noting that under sexual assault and harassment law, the case is supposed to be settled in court.
Herman’s recent lawsuit against Woods, seeking to have her NDA removed under the Speak Now Act, marks her attempt to have her lawsuit recognized as a harassment case. However, no specific allegations of assault or harassment are mentioned in the court documents from the October trial or the March trial.
Right now, Herman is seeking clarification on what she can legally discuss about her nearly six-year relationship with Woods.
