An emotional Erin Andrews testified Monday in the civil trial against Michael Barrett, the man who took video of her naked in a hotel room through the peephole of the door, and the Nashville hotel that gave him the room.
She tearfully described how people initially thought the video was a publicity stunt, saying that for three months after the images leaked, people thought she had staged the incident herself.
The case stems from a 2008 incident that happened at the Marriott at Vanderbilt University, in which a man videotaped Andrews changing in her hotel room. He then proceeded to post the naked videos on the internet. In addition to the suspect, Andrews made a $75 million claim against the hotel, saying that they negligently gave Michael David Barrett her room number and let him stay in the room next door.
