Tiger Woods' ex-girlfriend Erica Herman has made their breakup "a nightmare for him," an insider close to the professional golfer revealed.

After the restaurant manager filed a petition to nullify the former couple's NDA on Wednesday, March 8, and noted there were allegedly incidents of sexual abuse, Woods was left in a state of "panic" in regard to what secrets might be exposed.

"There's a lot of panic right now" for the 47-year-old, the insider confessed. "No one wants the details of a long relationship to be made public."

Though the former flames seemed to displayed a united front throughout the course of their six-year relationship, it appears things took a turn for the worse toward the end of their romantic demise.

"It was clear that things have gotten toxic between the two of them," the insider noted, adding how just about "everyone" spending time with Herman and Woods "knew that last year."

The exes went their separate ways months ago, as court documents exposed that the ugly breakup occurred in October 2022, as OK! previously reported.

At the time the ex-lovers called it quits, Herman claimed she was "tricked" into leaving Woods' home — where she had lived with him for the entirety of their relationship.

In her legal filing to nullify their NDA, the 38-year-old cited an "oral agreement" the duo supposedly shared, arguing that she still had five years left to live in the Florida mansion. Herman referenced an 11-year tenant deal she and Woods allegedly agreed to at the start of their longtime romance.

Since Herman claimed Woods informed her "she was no longer welcome in the residence," the legendary athlete's ex requested $30 million worth of compensation in exchange for the time she should have been living in the Jupiter estate.

Woods finds the whopping price to be absolutely "ridiculous," according to the close insider, and is now left to make a tough decision.
