Lindsay Lohan Suing Rockstar Over Alleged Grand Theft Auto V Likeness
Written Wednesday, July 02, 2014 By Richard WalkerView author's profile
Mean Girls star Lindsay Lohan had been rumoured to be considering a lawsuit against Rockstar regarding her alleged likeness to Grand Theft Auto V character Lacey Jonas back in December, and now the actress has actually filed said lawsuit today, amid claims from Lohan that Jonas is an "unequivocal" reference to her.
You may recall that Lacey Jonas crops up in a GTA V mission that tasks players with escorting the starlet to her home in the game's Vinewood Hills, while protecting her from the prying camera lenses of the paparazzi. During the mission Lacey says "she's such a fat little piggy," claiming that sucking on too many french fries and spitting them into a bucket is still "probably like 100 calories!"
Suffice it to say, Lacey Jonas isn't a particularly flattering potrayal of your average Vinewood starlet.
Lohan filed the lawsuit against Rockstar today in a Manhattan court, claiming that her image, voice and styles from her clothing line are depicted in GTA V, as is the Chateau Marmont Hotel in West Hollywood, which the actress once called home. You don't actually drop Jonas at the hotel, however. There's an image of Lacey Jonas as she appears in Grand Theft Auto V below.
