TMZ reports that Andrews says she can still find the pictures on TheDirty.com, and has spoken to her lawyer to get them removed.
In the letter sent to the website, her lawyer explains The Dirty is “unlawfully” posting the pics because “the copyright of these images belongs exclusively to Ms. Andrews.”
TheDirty.com doesn’t seem to care and are milking the free press for all its worth. In fact, the website has reposted the pictures in a more prominent place on the site.
TMZ is reporting that it has obtained the specific email threats made against ESPN’s Erin Andrews.
The threats were made by a Newport News, Virginia man who sent these messages to Dan Patrick of “The Dan Patrick Show” since last September. Interestingly the man made no attempt to hide his identity.
March 29, 2010 — “Dear Dan: I hope Erin Andrews gets murdered in L.A.”
Michael David Barret, the stalker, was sentenced to 30 months in federal prison. Barret, a 48-year-old insurance executive, pleaded guilty in December for one count of interstate stalking.
Previously, on three occasions, Barret had got adjoining rooms in hotels, to that of Andrews. Then, he would drill a peephole into the door and take videos. Barret was caught after he tried to sell his camerawork online.
Michael David Barrett, 48, was arrested in connection with a peeping tom case involving ESPN reporter Erin Andrews. Barrett was arrested at Chicago O’Hare International Airport for allegedly videotaping the reporter walking around naked in a number of hotel rooms without her knowledge, reports TMZ.
Barrett allegedly stalked Andrews “with the intent to harass, to place under surveillance with intent to harass and intimidate, and to cause substantial emotional distress to a person in another state,” the FBI reported.
At least six different tapes shot with a peephole camera of Andrews walking around nude in hotel rooms surfaced in July.
