Fox Sports broadcaster and "Dancing with the Stars" co-host Erin Andrews is seeking $75 million in damages from Marriott International stemming from a 2008 invasion of privacy case in which she was videotaped while nude inside her room at the Nashville Marriott, The Smoking Gun reported.

Andrews filed the amended complaint Tuesday after Judge Hamilton Gayden granted the defense's motion seeking a specific damages amount.

The 37-year-old celebrity broadcaster originally filed a lawsuit against the company back in 2011, alleging that it was guilty of negligence during the September 2008 incident in Tennessee. 

The trial, which is expected to last 10 days, is set to begin next year. 

According to court papers obtained by The Smoking Gun, Andrews alleges that Marriott staff acted carelessly in multiple instances leading up to Michael David Barrett's invasion of her privacy, including revealing that she was a guest at the hotel, disclosing her room number and granting Barrett's request to be placed in the room next to hers. 

Barrett then filmed Andrews from a front door peephole before uploading the footage to the Internet.

An FBI probe led to Barrett's arrest. He was sentenced to 30 months in prison after he pleaded guilty to felony stalking in December 2009.

Several hotel employees are likely to be called on to testify during the trial.
