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.

Seems to me if she's going to sue them for this, then she HAS to sue the Glee production for using her name in the same manner. All Pitbull et al have to do is show that Glee used her name in this same manner, and she did nothing about it.

She is the equivalent of a slimy patent troll, making a living off of suing people who use her name. Yuck.

Maybe if you would get your act together then people would have nothing to say about you. How about you stop the lawsuits, quit partying all the time, focus or repairing your career and do your community service. Then maybe you will not have to worry about what people say about you.

this woman is crazy and of course she is sick. She should be grateful that a popular rapper like pitbull mentions her, cause she doesnt even have money or career anymore. I guess everyone had a piece of pitbull.It's sad. I support Pitbull.

Jeez, she is beyond a very sad joke. She has always been her own worst ememy. Hell the Screen Actors Guild should sue her for claiming she's a 'professional actor in good repute'.


She's so reputable and so professional no one will hire her, doesn't know her lines, doesn't show up for work, completly unprepaired, can't get insured and so on.

What professional actor in good repute and standing does this. No one but her.

To prove such a case, she will have to prove these statements to be untrue. Good luck with that!

Lindsey, what do you expect? If you are going to continue to walk the bad side then people are going to make fun of you and disrespect you. This isn't rocket science honey! Grow up! Yes, you have lousy trailer trash parents BUT you know the difference between right and wrong.

"the lyrics...are destined to do irreparable harm to the plaintiff." Seriously? Because she hasn't already done this by herself?

it's called freedom of speech. and it's called that's the only way you are going to stay "relevant" is by constantly suing people.
