Back in 2008, FOX reporter Erin Andrews was secretly filmed naked on a hidden camera while she was staying at the Marriott at Vanderbilt in Nashville, Tennessee.
Now, the reporter is out for revenge.
When Andrews stayed at the hotel in 2008, her stalker Michael David Barrett rented the room next to hers. He then adjusted the keyhole and placed a hidden camera inside to capture the X-rated footage. Barrett later posted the video online, which led to him being caught and sentenced to 2 and a half years in jail on numerous stalking charges.
According to Daily Mail, Andrews filed a lawsuit against Marriott International and several other defendants in December of 2011, saying they were guilty of negligence and invasion of privacy.
Now, in an updated lawsuit, Andrews is seeking $75 million from Marriott International in damages.
“I’ve filed this lawsuit to hold accountable those who put my personal safety at risk and who allowed my privacy to be invaded while I was a guest at their hotel, as well as for actually stalking me and making my most personal moments public,” Andrews said in 2010.
“Although I’ll never be able to fully erase the impact that this invasion of privacy has had upon me and my family, I do hope that my experience will cause the hospitality industry to be more vigilant in protecting its guests from the time they reserve a hotel room until they check out,” she added.
Beginning her career at ESPN in 2004, Andrews moved to FOX in 2010. She is also one of the hosts of Dancing With The Stars, the reality show she appeared as a contestant on soon after this scandal broke.
