Baby Reindeer Alleged Real-Life Stalker Files Netflix Lawsuit

Fiona Harvey is taking legal action. 

The 58-year-old—who has claimed she’s the real-life woman behind the alleged stalker in the hit Netflix show Baby Reindeer, which claims to be a true story by creator Richard Gadd—has filed a lawsuit against the streaming platform totaling $170 million. 

As seen in the suit obtained by E! News, Harvey accuses Netflix of defamation, intentional infliction of emotional distress, negligence, gross negligence and violations of right of publicity.  

Citing the series’ claim to be a true story—as written in the first episode—Harvey’s filing reads, “The above quote from the first episode of the Netflix series, Baby Reindeer, is the biggest lie in television history.”

“It is a lie told by Netflix and the show’s creator, Richard Gadd, out of greed and lust for fame,” it continued. “A lie designed to attract more viewers, get more attention, to make more money, and to viciously destroy the life of Plaintiff, Fiona Harvey – an innocent woman defamed by Netflix and Richard Gadd at a magnitude and scale without precedent.”

In addition to the pilot note, “This is a true story,” in the credits of each episode there is text that reads, “This program is based on real events: however certain characters, names, incidents, locations, and dialogue have been fictionalized for dramatic purposes.”
