Contrary to various reports, Amanda Knox isn’t being sued by the victim’s family.
On October 10, Yahoo News and ABC News reported that the Kercher family was preparing to potentially sue Amanda Knox.
“I can assure you that it’s absolute nonsense,” Lyle Kercher, the brother of Knox’s roommate Meredith Kercher, said.
“I’m not even sure where these fantastical ideas come from sometimes,” he told KING TV in Seattle .
Rumors had it that the Kercher family was suing Amanda for up to $12 million. However, they have been proven false.
Knox, 24, is currently trying to adapt to normal life at home with her family in Seattle .
Amanda Knox was released from prison earlier this month after being arrested in 2007. In 2009 a jury convicted Knox of the sexual assault and murder of Meredith Kercher in the house they shared in Perugia , Italy .
Knox was sentenced to 26 years in prison, but on Oct. 3 an appeals court overturned her conviction.
