Lindsay Lohan Sues Rockstar Games

It is being reported that Lindsay Lohan is a little upset with Grand theft Auto 5 developers Rockstar for putting what she believes is her likeness in their game without her permission. There is a mission in the game where you (the player) have to chase after a train wreck of an actress to take her photo as well as a mission where she is being convinced to make a sex tape at a hotel that resembles the Chateau Marmont. Apparently that is a popular hang out for the real life actress.

I think the funniest part of this whole story is that Lindsay believes that this character is suppose to represent her…Does she see some similarities in this character’s stupid behavior in the game? Also, she says that they used her likeness for the games cover and some promotional material once again without her permission. Too bad for Lindsay, but the girl on the cover is actually suppose to resemble model Shelby Welinder who was hired by Rockstar in 2012 for the advertisement.

Still Ms. Lohan believes that her likeness is somewhere in the game and at first I wasn’t convinced until I saw the side by side comparison of the picture to the right. Once I saw it, there was no doubt in my mind that Rockstar did put Lindsay’s likeness in the game…Personally I think they made her look better so I don’t know what she’s complaining about. Ultimately this is just a case of a has been actress who needs money and has no viable way of making it, so she’s really reaching hoping to win a little off of a bogus lawsuit. Fortunately Rockstar has plenty of money to afford good lawyers and they believe it will be almost impossible for her to prove these allegations in court; Especially when she already has one failed lawsuit under her belt.
