Erin Andrews Sues for $10 Million Over Video Stalking Incident

ESPN reporter and Dancing With the Stars Season 10 finalist Erin Andrews recently filed a $10 million invasion of privacy lawsuit over a creepy 2008 incident involving a video tape and a peep hole, reports Reuters.

The lawsuit is against Erin's convicted stalker, Michael Barrett, as well as the West End Marriott. She is suing Barrett for $4 million, and the hotel $6 million for negligence.

Barrett has already pleaded guilty to stalking Erin, and is currently serving jail time. He allegedly followed Erin to at least three cities, and videotaped her through a West End Marriott peep hole. The prosecution claims the hotel was negligent by allowing Barrett to find out what room Erin was staying in, as well as allowing him to subsequently book the room next to her.

The lawsuit explains that the existence of these videos still cause "great emotional distress and embarrassment" for Erin.

We're sorry to hear Erin is still suffering, and we hope things work out for her.
