The actress, who has been in the spotlight for years, made headlines earlier this year for a shocking story about a man who cheated on her. The man, Alex Sorokin, was accused of defrauding Williams of $62,000 in corporate credit card debt. Ultimately, Williams contacted authorities and he was arrested. Williams subsequently wrote about the incident for Vanity Fair.
The book received widespread praise, and it was named a bestseller by Women’s Health and listed in the Times’ Top 100 Must-Reads list. The book’s sales helped Williams get her life back on track. However, the book’s popularity resulted in the publication of legal documents that she had previously withheld. While the fictional character was unnamed, Williams was defamed in real life, resulting in vile online and offline interactions.
According to the lawsuit, Netflix intentionally portrayed Williams in a negative light. The actress is now suing the streaming company for defamation, false light, and invasion of privacy. Her suit also demands that Netflix remove all defamatory statements. In addition, the actress is seeking punitive damages and an injunction preventing further slander.
Rachel DeLoache Williams is an American writer, photographer, and creative consultant. She grew up in Knoxville, Tennessee and graduated from Kenyon College. In 2010, she relocated to New York City. However, her career in the media stalled after she was dismissed from Vanity Fair Magazine in 2019. She has recently talked about her friendship with Anna Sorokin, who pretended to be a German heiress.
Sorokin told Williams that she was an heiress and deserved $60 million. Williams was invited to luxurious restaurants and spas. She even received all-expenses-paid trips to Morrocco. While she was abroad, Sorokin promised to send wires to her bank accounts.
Sorokin deceived the elites of New York by stealing their money. In the end, she was found guilty of four counts of theft of services, three counts of grand larceny, and a single count of attempted grand larceny. Sorokin was jailed for four to 12 years, but she was released on parole in February 2021. She now faces deportation.
