Golzar Amirmotazedi has filed a lawsuit in D.C. Superior Court against Viacom, MTV and The Real World's Bunim/Murray Productions claiming invasion of privacy, false light, disclosure of private facts and intentional and negligent infliction of emotional distress, The Hollywood Reporter reported Tuesday.

Amirmotazedi claims in the lawsuit that she was given eight to 10 alcoholic beverages by The Real World producers before being taken to the cast's house when the reality series was filming in Washington, D.C. last September.

However she alleges she was later kicked out of the house by cast members Andrew Stephen Woods and Josh Colon after refusing to have sex with one of them, according to The Reporter.

When footage from the incident aired during a March 10 episode, Amirmotazedi claims she was portrayed as "crazy," "weird," a "mess" and a "stalker" with emotional problems.

In addition, Amirmotazedi claims she was too intoxicated to sign a lawful waiver.

"Outtakes from The Real World...  show that Plaintiff in fact was not in a position to provide her consent to Defendant portraying her in a false light or disclosing private facts about her," reads the lawsuit, according to The Reporter.

Amirmotazedi is suing for $5 million.
