Tiger Woods’ ex-wife, Elin Nordegren, is not interested in the recent lawsuit filed by his ex-girlfriend, Erica Herman, a source tells PEOPLE.

The 47-year-old golfer is being sued by Herman, 38, who claims she is owed $30 million because Woods kicked her out of his home before the terms of an “oral agreement” that allowed her to live there for another five years ceased.

In the months since Herman filed the lawsuit in December, she filed a separate complaint seeking release from a nondisclosure agreement. She cited a law that allows NDAs to be voided in sexual assault cases, although she has not publicly made any allegations against Woods.

A source close to Nordegren, who was involved in a highly publicized divorce from Woods in 2010, says she has “no interest” in her ex-husband’s personal life, including the lawsuit.

“This aspect of Tiger’s life is not her concern,” the source tells PEOPLE. “She has no interest in his personal life or what happens with his various girlfriends. That part of her life was over a long time ago.”

PEOPLE reached out to representatives for Woods for comment. Attempts to reach Nordegren failed.

The source says tensions between Nordegren and Woods have cooled since their divorce more than a decade ago amid reports of Woods’ infidelity. They maintain a cordial relationship because of their two children, Sam Alexis, 15, and Charlie Axel, 14, according to the source.

“Elin and Tiger are on good terms for the sake of the kids,” the source tells PEOPLE. “She would never go back with him, but likes that he’s a good father. She’s seen that over the years, which has led to a good relationship. They co-parent quite well.”

“Obviously, she has to be very sure that the kids are safe and happy around whoever Tiger is with, especially if the romance gets serious,” the source adds. “She is very interested to that extent. But not in much else.”

Another source agrees that Woods and Nordegren are “comfortable” with each other, but do not share a typical “friendship.”

“The scope of most of their interaction is over the children,” they explain. “Compared to other couples who break up with children, this one has been mostly uneventful.”

“The kids have a good life with both parents, and that speaks to their maturity and ability to put past differences aside,” the source adds.

Nordegren also shares a young son with former NFL player Jordan Cameron.

As PEOPLE previously reported, a motion filed by Woods’ Trust attorneys says Herman signed an agreement with the golfer on Aug. 9, 2017, in which both parties agreed to “(they) waive any right (they) may have to a lawsuit . by judge or jury with respect to matters subject to mandatory binding arbitration.”

Essentially, lawyers for the Woods’ Trust argue that by suing her ex-boyfriend, Herman is blatantly flouting her “obligation to resolve all disputes with Mr. Woods in confidential binding arbitration.”

In the motion, Woods’ Trust expressed concern about “the publicity likely to follow” the complaint, given his celebrity status.

According to the Trust’s motion, “Ms. Herman is seeking to improperly exploit a payment from Mr. Woods in an amount that no arbitral forum would ever award. Such gamesmanship should not be tolerated.”

According to the court documents, Herman is suing for consequential damages, injunctive relief and attorney’s fees under the Florida Residential Landlord Tenant Act.
