Dancing With the Stars co-host Erin Andrews is seeking $75 million in damages for being secretly videotaped by a Peeping Tom while she was nude inside a hotel room in Tennessee in September 2008.

The Fox News correspondent filed an amended complaint in Nashville Circuit Court on Tuesday, Oct. 13, which includes the hefty amount, according to court papers obtained by The Smoking Gun.

Michael David Barrett was found guilty of felony stalking in December 2009 and sentenced to 30 months in prison for filming Andrews through a front door peephole and then uploading several clips of the naked star to the Internet. 

Andrews, 37, filed a lawsuit in 2011 alleging that Marriott International and several other people were guilty of negligence and invasion of privacy in connection with the 2008 incident at the Nashville Marriott.

She claimed staff at the Marriott helped facilitate Barrett's videotaping by first revealing she was a guest at the hotel, then telling him her room number, and subsequently agreeing to his request to be given the room next door to her.

The case is set to go to trial in February next year and prospective witnesses include Andrews' former ESPN colleagues Chris Fowler and Craig James, along with former Dancing With the Stars pro Maksim Chmerkovskiy, who was partnered with Andrews when she competed on the reality show in 2010.
