Baby Reindeer’s Real-Life Martha Files Lawsuit Against Netflix

In her lawsuit, Fiona Harvey claimed that the story in ‘Baby Reindeer’ is all a ‘lie.’

“It is a lie told by Netflix and the show’s creator, Richard Gadd, out of greed and lust for fame; 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,” the court documents read, according to the outlet. In response to the lawsuit, a rep for Netflix provided a statement to PEOPLE, saying, “We intend to defend this matter vigorously and to stand by Richard Gadd’s right to tell his story.” Baby Reindeer depicts Gadd’s character, Donny Dunn, a struggling comedian in London, being stalked and harassed by a woman named Martha Scott.
