Bodyguard to Infamous dating scammer Simon Leviev, Peter feels his reputation is badly hurt following the release of the documentary and is ready to take Netflix on.
According to a letter shared by TMZ, Peter who was prominently featured as the personal security guard for Simon Leviev believes his reputation is badly hurt and unable to work, hence firing off a cease-and-desist letter to Netflix
In the letter, attorney Joanna Parafianowicz says she wants Netflix to yank the ‘Swindler’ documentary altogether.
Not just that, she’s demanding Netflix publish an apology to Peter on its official websites.
Of course … Peter is also asking for money due to what he characterizes as irreparable harm to his reputation and career. All in all, he’s asking for 5 million Euros (about $5.6 mil).
His rationale for all this is … Netflix never got permission to use his image or likeness, nor did it include his side of things. Peter’s attorney says the current depiction of him as it stands — namely, that he knew what Simon was doing — is completely false. They insist Peter was completely out of the loop on that front.
Parafianowicz has already publicly threatened a lawsuit in the wake of ‘Swindler’ blowing up as a huge streaming hit … but now, she’s putting it in writing.
