US woman sues Hilton for $100 million over nude shower video
A Chicago woman is suing Hilton Worldwide for $100 million saying that she was filmed naked in the shower by a hidden camera while a hotel guest – in footage uploaded with her name onto multiple porn sites.
The woman was a guest at a Hampton Inn and Suites hotel in Albany, New York, in July 2015.
She was recorded, fully nude, while taking a shower by a hidden video camera, the lawsuit claims.
But she was blissfully ignorant until September 2018, more than three years later, when she received an email saying “this is you right?” with a link to the video on a porn site published with her full name.
The same person then sent multiple threatening emails, claiming to know where she went to university and where she worked.
The extortionist then demanded an immediate hush payment of $2,000 followed by $1,000 a month for a year, the lawsuit claims, also alleging that other people were recorded in the same room at the Hampton Inn.
