A jaw-dropping $128 million lawsuit has been filed against streaming giant Netflix by a family claiming their $3.4 million Hollywood Hills residence was featured without consent in the popular reality show ‘Buying Beverly Hills,’ leaving them in a state of distress and constant fear, Your Content has learned.

Aharon Dihno, 60, his partner Fernando Cortez, and their twin boys have taken legal action in the Los Angeles Superior Court, accusing Netflix of using an image, possibly taken by a drone, of their secluded home in the show’s trailer. The family alleges that this exposure led to harassment and a serious invasion of privacy.

The controversy erupted when the trailer for ‘Buying Beverly Hills’ hit the screens last September. The promotional video showcased The Agency, a renowned real estate firm specializing in luxury properties.

To the family’s shock, their Hollywood Hills haven was displayed prominently, revealing intimate details of their private property.

The unexpected spotlight resulted in a flood of sightseers and real estate agents descending upon their home. The family’s peaceful life was shattered, and they now live in fear for their safety and security.

The intrusion has also severely impacted their personal business, which operates from the premises.

In response to the lawsuit, Netflix has filed two motions to have the case dismissed. The company asserts that they did not take the photo themselves but obtained it legally from a stock photo provider, Shutterstock.

They argue that the family had no reasonable expectation of privacy for the exterior of their home.

Moreover, Netflix claims the lawsuit infringes on their First Amendment rights and amounts to an attempt to silence them through litigation. The media giant is seeking protection under California’s anti-SLAPP law.
