Rockstar is being sued by Linday Lohan, according to reports from the Associated Press, over an unauthorised character likeness.

The lawsuit claims that the GTA V character “Lacey Jonas” is an “unequivocal” reference to the star and that her image, voice and styles from her clothing line are used in the game without her permission. In addition, the game features West Hollywood’s Chateau Marmont hotel, where Lohan apparently once lived.

Get with it internet! Where are all the spoof “Running over ‘ho’s videos”?

 

She must need more cocaine money.

 

That’s funny, she doesn’t look or sound anything like a crackwhore.

I think the ‘ol disclaimer about fictional characters and any resemblance to a real life person is coincidence ought to suffice.

 

Wow, suing for her voice being used without permission? Must suck to sound like Lindsay Lohan then, and get sued for talking…

 

Perhaps someone could enlighten me here, but what is Ms Lohan’s issue here? Does she expect to be paid for someone else using her supposed likeness and benefiting from it somehow, or is it more of a “how dare you use someone who looks something like me in a game!” thing?

Either way, seems the absolute height of stupidity. Like Lacey Jonas. I also hope this game has more to offer than missions like this.

 

lol really???

 

Old news really, this was going on last year. http://www.tmz.com/2013/12/01/lindsay-lohan-grand-theft-auto-v-gtav-video-game-image-lawsuit/

Also, this picture (more like Kate Upton?)

 

Uhh.. I had not even though this. Now that I’m reading it, I’m comparing Lindsay Lohan to a crackwhore. Well done Lindsay, well done.

 

Because in all of LA there is only 1 blonde obnoxious famous woman >.>

 

Can’t wait for the PC version where the modders will make sure “Lacey Jonas” does indeed look like and sound like Lindsey.

Also, if she does some how win, does that mean most people will see her as someone they would prefer to run over with the car then to shag her?

 

I see more facial features on a wooden plank as opposed to lindsey, whats so great about her? not even pretty

Isn’t that the case though regardless of whether she wins or loses.
