Lindsay Lohan

Sues E*TRADE:

I'm No Milkaholic!

3/9/2010 1:10 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Lindsay Lohan wants $100 million from E*TRADE -- because she believes their "milkaholic" baby featured in their Super Bowl commercial was modeled after her ... and as far as Lindsay's concerned, the smoking gun is all in the name.

The commercial features a baby named Lindsay -- who in the spot, is accused of being the "other woman" in a baby love triangle.

Lohan has filed a lawsuit in Nassau County Supreme Court in NY, first obtained by the NY Post, in which she claims E*TRADE violated Lohan's rights by using her "name and characterization" in business without paying her or getting her approval.

Lohan's lawyer, Stephanie Ovadia, tells TMZ it doesn't matter that the commercial doesn't mention the name Lohan, adding, "Do you know the name Oprah? Do you know the name Madonna? Same thing."

Ovadia had no comment on the "milkaholic" reference, saying "If you look at the commercial as a whole, it's Lindsay Lohan."

E*TRADE had no comment.

Ten year old children like to say her name, it rolls off the tongue. She's been in which great movie? As a flavor of the week I think she should be cheese-tuna with parsley.

Big difference when you are known by a single stage name, a trademarked single name, a branded name, or stage name.
It seems that the only people thinking that she is a "something-aholic" and that the commercial was about her...was her and her lawyer.

Love the commercial, seen it several times, am also familiar with Ms. Lohan's exploits, never, never, ever, thought that the commercial had used Ms. Lohan's "name and characterization". Utterly frivolous lawsuit! Thought it was a joke when started reading the article. Unbelievable.

Absolutely ridiculous! Ever heard the song, "You're so VAIN"?? I saw this commercial play live during the superbowl and the thought of Lindsey Lohan did not even cross my mind!

She is severely unstable and needs help ASAP. Obviously she must have a drinking problem if she is trying so desperately to make us think otherwise....I want to slap a bi+ch.

Seriously? It never occured to me or I'm sure any of the other millions of people watching the Super Bowl that the ad was referring to her. If it had, it would have been even funnier!

She's just pissed the baby has more work than her and is a better actress.
