Lohan sues Rockstar for allegedly using her likeness in GTAV


Controversial Hollywood actress Lindsay Lohan is suing GTA V developer Rockstar Games and publisher Take-Two Interactive for allegedly using her likeness without permission. Lohan claims that the GTA V character Lacey Jonas (pictured in the header image) is like her in looks and personal detail. “The portraits of the Plaintiff (Lohan),” reads the court filing, “incorporated her image, likeness, clothing, outfits, Plaintiff’s clothing line products, ensemble in the form of hats, hair style, sunglasses, jean shorts worn by the Plaintiff that were for sale to the public…”

Lacey Jonas is a minor character that makes an appearance during one of the side quests in Grand Theft Auto V. During that side quest you need to help Lacey escape from the paparazzi.

Rockstar has yet to issue a comment on the filing, but we’ll keep you updated. You can check out the gameplay sequence and character in question below. Key marketing artwork has also been called into question as a representation of Lindsay Lohan.
