Mermaid Rides Bike, But Only for a Price

Daryl Hannah is green with anger, claiming a hybrid electric bicycle company is using her fins to cash in.

TMZ obtained a lawsuit, filed by Hannah yesterday in L.A. County Superior Court, in which she claims the maker of a bike called Izip used her name and photo to promote the product on its website and catalog. The photo shows Hannah riding one of the bikes.

We kinda like this part of the suit: "Plaintiff will not voluntarily appear in print or other media unless she carefully selects and believes in the product, and unless the compensation she received is commensurate with the value of the exploitation..." In other words, everything has a price.

She's suing Currie Acquisition LLC for more than a mil.
