According to to some reports, actress Lindsay Lohan is planning to sue Rockstar Games, claiming the developer used her image without permission for Grand Theft Auto V.
Apparently, Lohan’s lawyers are already in the process of drafting a lawsuit against Rockstar that demands “serious money.”
Here’s the report by TMZ:
Lindsay Lohan has called in her lawyers to take action against ‘Grand Theft Auto V’ … claiming video game honchos jacked her image without her permission … TMZ has learned.
Sources tell us, Lohan’s lawyers are currently crafting a lawsuit — demanding Rockstar Games pay some serious money for using Lindsay’s image in the game.
So the question … did ‘GTAV’ really use Lindsay. Here’s the evidence:
— The video game cover shows a woman holding a cellphone who looks Lindsay-ish. There’s been debate over whether it looks more like Kate Upton or Shelby Welinder.
— Part of the game features a mission where a Lindsay Lohan look-alike asks the player to take her home and escape the paparazzi.
— Another part of the game shows another Lindsay-like character at a hotel resembling the Chateau Marmont hotel in West Hollywood — a place Lindsay not only frequents but once lived at — and the mission is to photograph her having sex on camera.
No word on whether ‘GTAV’ execs will pay Lindsay or tell her lawyers to pound sand.
