SQEAGY 4 LIFE's Gamercard
Former Mob Wives Star to sue Rockstar over Character Antonia Bottino

http://games.yahoo.com/blogs/plugged...174521697.html

So another "celebrity" has decided to become the next person to sue Rockstar over an AI because she claims the AI is based off of her and her life story.

As of now, she's seeking $20 million in compensation and another $20 million in punitive damages.

Dig harder and she may just find gold. Hope not.

I saw this earlier too, it's just stupid. Another lazy person trying to make an easy buck.

Not sure what's worse, this or the Lindsay Lohan lawsuit. I mean if Lindsay was suing over the likeness of one of the hookers then okay, I could see it .

Don't even call her that. Lindsay at the very least had promise as a child actor with that Parent Trap remake. Once she fell into that "Socialite Slut" crowd, she instantly became talentless. Much more unattractive over the years too IMHO. I think one of her last "big roles" was like a stripper with an amputated leg. Not sure but her career speaks for itself.
Not to mention, she was suing over the likeness of the bikini-blonde which looked WAY more like 2 other celebrities.

This mob wife is just looking for an easy payout. Suffice it to say, you'd think if it was such a blatant ripoff, she would've made noise about it by at least end of last year. She must be hitting the tail end of maxing out daddy's CC's.

Yeah this law suit takes all fear out of her being related to the mob. Last I checked the mob doesn't sue people or businesses for stupid shit.

the daughter of a rat is hardly a "mob wife"

if Amanda was actually "based on her (Karen's) image", wouldn't Amanda have been a heavy-set woman?

her life story is public record because of the life she's chosen, nobody forced her to be on tv and air her laundry and act like a c---, her case is just gonna be thrown out.

It's not Amanda that she thinks is her. She's claiming the mob daughter whom you can rescue up near Paleto Bay is.

EDIT: D'oh! This is what ends up being my grand 1,000th post?!

Who's this woman complaining about? I've completed the game to near 100%, but can't place that image of the character anywhere, is it someone 'blink and you miss it' minor?

She's from the Burial random event up near Paleto Bay. You rescue her from these guys about to bury her alive, and as a reward, her mob boss dad gives you $60k if you don't give her to the Altruists as Trevor.

Ah, I remember that one, vaguely. She's having a laugh with this then surely? It was such a brief forgettable part of the game, the link makes it sound as tho a huge chunk of the game was ripped straight from her life.
