Andrews' Lawyer: 'Sick' Person Behind Threats

4/2/2010 8:12 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has obtained a statement from Erin Andrews' lawyer, confirming the story TMZ broke a few minutes ago -- that Erin is the target of death threats which are being investigated by the FBI.

Attorney Marshall Grossman tells TMZ:

"It is correct that within the past few days death threats have been made against Erin Andrews. As soon as we learned of them the FBI was notified. They are on the case."

Grossman goes on ... "Erin and her family are protected. It is unfortunate that there are sick people who prey on the fears and threaten the well being of others. Erin is not alone among those who have to deal with such predators."

And Grossman says, "Erin is looking forward to the future and will keep all of her commitments including her appearance on 'Dancing with the Stars.' We ask that the privacy of Erin and her family be respected."

UGGGGHHH    

I PERSONALLY THINK IT WAS THAT PERVERT, WHO PROBABLY HAD HIS FRIENDS OR FAMILY GO AFTER HER BECAUSE OF HIS JAIL TIME.

I HOPE THE LAW CATCHES THEM. I HOPE ERIN IS OK TOO. SHE IS SO PRETTY AND I FEEL BAD FOR HER.

OMG, how can any of you say such terrible things? You're all simply jealous that you don't have legs forever and can look like a Princess Grace Kelly? No woman in the public eye should be stalked or threatened by men and/or women.

#7 Stalkers actually stalk a person in similar ways and just because these sicko's can obtain priveleged information with cons and bluff so they know their victims every detail and movement DOESN'T mean it's p.r nonsense!! Though it pains me to say that in Cheryl Cole's case as that seems very, very fishy lol!!

If the victim of stalking wasn't a celebrity would the FBI, generally speaking, still be as interested in investigating the case?

I say this because there must be tens of thousands of victims of stalking in the US on any given day.

Perhaps the FBI should set up a 'Middle to Lower Income, Non-Famous Victims' Unit. The taxpayer money that goes into the 'Celebrities and Rich People First' Unit needs to be distributed better, methinks.
