Lindsay Lohan siccing lawyers on Rockstar for GTA V

lindsay_lohanJust when we thought Hollywood’s biggest train wreck couldn’t do anything else to make herself look bad, this apparently becomes a thing. Actress Lindsay Lohan, known for her role as a child star in the movie The Parent Trap, as well as her later fall from grace, is reportedly sending her lawyers after Rockstar games for using her likeness in Grand Theft Auto V.

According to TMZ, Lohan’s lawyers are putting together a case consisting of three scenarios where she believes the company used her likeness without permission. One side mission has players helping a supposed Lohan look-alike in escaping from the paparazzi, while another side mission has the player taking photos of a woman at a place resembling the Chateau Marmont, where Lohan formally resided.

The last instance has Lohan claiming that Rockstar used her likeness as a model for the bikini woman used in marketing ads. In this case, the actual model, Shelby Welinder, has come forward providing her invoice for the project as proof that she was the model used.

The chances of this actually going to court is minimal, as the cases used are likely designed as references to Lohan’s hilarious troubles with the law and the public eye, as well as other Hollywood jokes regarding vain celebrities, and don’t specifically mention her by name.
