Lindsay Lohan Sues Grand Theft Auto 5 Makers For Using Her Likeness Without Permission

/ 3 years ago

Celebrity Lindsay Lohan has filed a civil suit in the Supreme Court in New York, accusing Rockstar Games and Take-Two Interactive of using her likeness without permission.

Lohan’s legal team has taken particular interest of the Lacey Jonas character in GTA 5, along with the Gentry Manor hotel – similar to the Chateau Marmont in West Hollywood – where Lohan once lived.

Jonas is encountered in the game when she needs assistance escaping the paparazzi, with the game indicating she’s a famous person with an eating disorder.

Here is what the lawsuit alleges:

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

Lohan is looking for unspecified damages in the civil suit.
