Lindsey Lohan to sue GTA over "likeness"

I busted out laughing when I read about this. I guess Lindsey needs some money.

Quote:
Mean Girls and The Parent Trap actress Lindsay Lohan is planning to sue Rockstar Games, claiming the developer used her image without permission for Grand Theft Auto V.
That's according to a TMZ report, which claims Lohan's lawyers are in the process of drafting a lawsuit against Rockstar Games that demands "serious money."
No official lawsuit has been filed yet, so it is unclear which part or component of GTAV featured a likeness that Lohan claims is similar to her own.
TMZ points out that GTAV's box art features a woman holding a cellphone who somewhat resembles Lohan. The game also features a mission that has players taking home a Lohan-esque character to escape the paparazzi.
GTAV also features a mission at a hotel resembling Chateau Marmont in West Hollywood--a place where Lohan visits often and lived for a period of time.
We've reached out to Rockstar Games and parent company Take-Two Interactive for comment.
If Lohan does indeed sue Rockstar over GTAV, her lawsuit would not be the first the game has faced legal action since its record-setting launch in September. Rapper Daz Dillinger accused Rockstar in October of using two of his songs in the game without permission, demanding that Rockstar give him more money for the songs or destroy all remaining unsold copies of GTAV.

If Lohan is sueing that should mean that every other trashy blonde could sue as well.

Seems like R* is always getting sued over something.

No body wants to think of lohan taking it up the poop chute.
Also c-walk ain't even a good song so I hope they end up taking it out.

I laughed even harder at the rapper story when he said that if he didn't get the money then he wanted the copies recalled and all of the unsold copies to be destroyed. I'm sure they could just put a patch out that keeps the song from coming up on the radio.

If they're talking about the cover, I honestly thought it was of Kate Upton.

One of the stupidest things I heard all day. I'm sure the last person Rockstar would use for a model would be her -_-

Woman with the phone likeness would more than likely be Kate Upton

I thought it looked like a young Sharon Stone with fake boobs. Although the artwork character looks more like a human being than Lindsay.....

As stated several times in the thread, it's not the cover girl she is suing over.

Also, lol at your comment

This made my day, what a joke. LL looks nothing like the bikini girl. I hope she enjoys wasting her own time, apparently she has a lot of it.

For money. Nobody in Hollywood is hiring her since she's an addict.

This guy sums it up pretty well,

The only likeness I know of is Lindsey learned how to drive from playing GTA. She must be broke from a failed career and needs money.
