One Dimensional Lindsay Lohan to Sue GTA For Turning Her Into A 2D Cartoon Character
YOU might think GTA V is the greatest thing since sliced ham, but the game’s Lacey Jonas character has got Lindsay Lohan in a spin alright.
Lacey is a blond celebrity who lives at the Chateau Marment on West Hollywood who is trying to escape the paparazzi all the time and isn’t exactly a virtuous human.
Lindsay Lohan, meanwhile is… well… draw your own conclusions because we don’t want to get involved with her lawyers. Her lawyers a like those badass TV ones. Our lawyers are like Lionel Hutz.
Anyway, LiLo has filed a lawsuit against Take-Two Interactive Software and Rockstar Games, claiming that they used her likeness to create Jonas.
“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,” the suit reads.
Lohan’s suit adds that Take-Two, like everyone else, need to pay her for use of her image.
And, make no bones about it – Lohan wants “serious money” as compensation, or else things are going to get pretty ugly.
At one point in the game, Lacey cries “I’m really famous. I didn’t do anything!”, which would’ve been written around the same time as Lohan’s foray into blanket press coverage when she was getting accused of robbing jewellery, being drunk a lot, hitting paps with her car and… we’ll stop now.
The lawyers you see. Do you think Lacey is based on Lohan? If so, don’t people have the right to lampoon anymore?
