Lindsay Lohan always manages to find herself back in the lime light! This time, it’s for a lawsuit against the creators of mega-hit video game ‘Grand Theft Auto’. Lindsay claims that the video game used her likeness for a character without her knowledge or consent, according to a new report.

Lindsay Lohan, is reportedly suing Take-Two Interactive Software Inc. and Rockstar Games over their character Lacey Jonas in Grand Theft Auto V. The actresss claims that the character is an “unequivocal replica” of herself. Read on for all the details!

Lindsay Lohan Sues ‘Grand Theft Auto V’ Creators

The 5th installation of Grand Theft Auto was a huge hit — it racked up $800 million in profits on its first day alone. The game includes plenty of Los Angeles parodies, one of which the Mean Girls star was apparently not very happy about. Lindsay’s lawsuit states that the character, Lacey Jonas, uses her likeness without her permission. 

“The portraits of the Plaintiff (Lohan) incorporated her image, likeness, clothing, outfits, Plaintiff’s clothing line products, ensemble in the form of hats, hair style, sunglasses, jean shorts worn by the Plaintiff that were for sale to the public at least two years” before the game was released,” the lawsuit states, according to Forbes.

The game also features the Lacey character running out of what appears to be Hollywood’s famous Chateau Marmont hotel, where Lindsay reportedly charged a $46,000 unpaid bill before being banned indefinitely

Lindsay Lohan Celebrates 28th Birthday With Lawsuit

Lindsay turned 28 on July 2 — we guess a lawsuit is one way to celebrate!

Take-Two and Rockstar Games have not responded publicly to the lawsuit, so only time will tell what happens in this case. In the game, the Lacey character runs into the street where she asks a motorcyclist to help her escape from the paparazzi:

“Can you give me a ride past them, PLEASE!?” says Lacey. “I’m hardly wearing any makeup. This is a disaster. I’m so f—–g fat. How’s my hair? Do I look cute?”

OUCH. We’re sure Lindsay didn’t like that. Even with all of the fuss she is making, GTA 5 made ONE BILLION dollars after only three days on the shelves — so Lindsay’s birthday lawsuit could end up being just a small fee for the video game empire.

Did Lindsay have the right to sue, HollywoodLifers? Tell us what YOU think!

She must be in desperate need of money or something, because the character looks NOTHING like her. I thought she was Kate Upton also I’m pretty sure they would at least create the character based on someone relevant, Lindsay is not relevant.

Now THAT’s what I call desperate for attention, desperate to be noticed, desperation in a career that is dead.

She’s nuts…. There is no resemblance between her and that cartoon character. Nothing like looking for the easy way to pay your bills. Lie
