A Nashville jury has awarded Erin Andrews $80 million in her peeping trial civil lawsuit against a hotel and the man convicted of spying on her.

The "Dancing With the Stars" co-host burst into tears Monday evening inside the courtroom as the verdict was read.

She later hugged jurors, according to local reports. One jurist asked her for an autograph.

Michael Barrett has already served 27 months in jail for the crime. He must pay 51 percent of the reduced award, jurors ruled. The hotel owner and operator must pay 49 percent.

Andrews had sought $117 million in damages. 

Deliberations began Friday on whether the Nashville Marriott at Vanderbilt University should pay $75 million in damages.

In their closing statements, Andrews’ lawyers spoke of the anguish she suffered

"She just screamed and screamed: 'I am naked all over the internet,'" an attorney said.
