Lindsay Lohan Attacks Pitbull

Sues Over 'Give Me Everything'

8/19/2011 10:35 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0819-lindsay-neyo-pittbull-ex
Lindsay Lohan has just sued the rapper Pitbull for a line in his mega-hit, "Give Me Everything," for a disparaging lyric about her.

The song -- written by Ne-Yo and Afrojack, also defendants -- has a line:

Hustlers move aside, so I'm tiptoein', to keep flowin'
I got it locked up like Lindsay Lohan.

Lindsay is pissed, claiming in her lawsuit ... "the lyrics, by virtue of its wide appeal, condemnation, excoriation, disparaging or defamatory statements by the defendants about the plaintiff are destined to do irreparable harm to the plaintiff."

Lindsay, who claims in the lawsuit she is "a professional actor of good repute and standing in the Screen Actors Guild, is suing under the New York civil rights laws, which protects people from having their name exploited for commercial purposes.

Lindsay alleges the appearance of her name in the song "causes [Lindsay] to be associated and identified in connection with defendants."

The suit -- filed by Stephanie Ovadia -- seeks an injunction to stop all of the defendants from broadcasting the song.  It also seeks unspecified damages.  Ovadia is the same lawyer who filed the E*TRADE lawsuit on Lindsay's behalf, which settled for a confidential sum.

She's already done permanent irreparable harm to herself. It's her own damn fault, so why should anybody give a *hit.

Bitch ought to be thanking Pit Bull for keeping her name relevent in the first place. Even if it is an insinuation of jail, haha. Does she really think that Hollywood isn't laughing their asses off at her on a regular basis? It's also kinda funny that she has no problem stepping all over someone elses reputation or rights, but god help anyone that steps on her little thieving toes....

Go figure... Apparently suing and threatening to sue (E*Trade, Glee, Pitbull, etc.) is the only way she can make money now.

Why didn't she sue the following:

The producers of Glee who said the following:
"Lindsay Lohan is totally crazy, right?" And "How many times has Lindsay Lohan been to rehab?"
-
The Tonight Show with Jay Leno who said the following:
More bad news from Hollywood. Lindsay Lohan chewed through her ankle bracelet and ran into a liquor store.

This is a big story here. Apparently Lindsay Lohan’s attorney is concerned the alcohol monitoring thing on her ankle could ruin the filming of her upcoming movie where she plays Linda Lovelace. I guess Lindsay’s concerned that since she’s playing a porn star, she’s worried that the ankle bracelet will keep getting caught in her earring. That’s always a problem
-
Or David Letterman who said the following:
Letterman’s Lohan-themed top ten list “Things Overheard During Lindsay Lohan’s First Night in Jail” included the highlights: “Your Orange Prison Jumpsuit Matches your tan”, “I hope they have ‘OK’ magazine in the library”, "It’s Hollywood-Everyone goes to prison”, and “Why can’t we get an A-List celebrity like Meryl Streep”.
-
Or Conan O'Brian who said the following:
Daughter to a Place You Never Go Day.” –Conan O’Brien
Lindsay Lohan had her house arrest bracelet removed. Then, when no one was looking, she slipped the bracelet into her pocket.

@Nicole, pay attention, you might learn something.

When asked why Lindsay was passed over for a role, director Steven Soderbergh had this to say:

He didn’t want to deal with all that,” our source spills. “Nobody wanted to go there.

That was BEFORE the song lyric came to light. AND THAT MY FRIENDS, is the damage she has done to herself.

C'mon look at the lyric...Got it locked up like Lindsay Lohan, not I've been locked up like Lindsay Lohan.


You can also infer she got things together. Only Lohan herself is making this bad so she can sue just like she did with E-Trade. Whoever came close to putting the lindsay milk-o-holic baby to Lohan. Again, only Lohan did that.

Well, like the lyric said, she has been locked up!

I don't think some club song will harm her career at all. Her personal issues will (and they did).

She's probably broker than we all think and just needs the cash. Lots of celebs have their name pop up in a song and no one decides not to hire them over some lyrics. Soon they'll sue TMZ and that awesome narrator dude for making legitimate and hilarious jokes on their site and show.
