During her emotional testimony Monday afternoon, the 37-year-old sportscaster broke down in tears as she recalled how people initially thought the video was a publicity stunt and that she had gotten naked for “more fans” and attention.

Andrews also told the courtroom that no one told her Barrett asked to be put in a hotel room next to hers.

Also on Monday, Andrews’ mother, Paula also testified saying her daughter is “different emotionally” after the video was posted online.

“Through no fault of her own, she lost control,” Paula Andrews said.

Barrett’s testimony also came Monday and was presented via a recorded deposition that lasted more than 2 and a half hours.

In it, he said his intent was not to embarrass or humiliate the sportscaster, and chose Andrews because she was trending on Yahoo, which is how he figured out she was a star.
