HOLLYWOOD, CA – The hits just keep on coming for one very popular ESPN correspondent!
Erin Andrews can’t seem to catch a break, even if her life depended on it. She recently saw her stalker sentenced to 30 months in prison for for filming her through a peephole. Rumors have been blazing suggesting that she and her partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy from Dancing with the Stars are dating, which she emphatically refutes. Now comes the icing on the cake. It has been revealed that Andrews has been facing death threats since last fall.
The emails first started as sexually themed and were arriving at Sport radio’s The Dan Patrick Show last fall. Recently, however, the emails have taken a violent turn and have threatened Andrews with murder. The FBI has been involved in the matter and authorities seem to believe they have the individual responsible.
“She’s not the type to be easily threatened,” Andrews attorney, Marshall Grossman said in a statement. “She has every intention to meet her obligations.”
Those obligations tie into this season’s edition of Dancing with the Stars. Despite the threats, Andrews has gone on record to say that she will not leave her commitment to the show and her partner Chmerkovskiy. She has asked for security to be beefed up around production of the show and private security has been hired for herself and her family.
“I’m glad I’m here. I have a dance on Monday and I don’t want to let Maks down, I don’t want to let me family down, and I don’t want to let myself down,” she said in a statement. “I’m not going to stop living my life.”
