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.

Since this skank can't land a job she wants to sue people. Please Lindsay...get over yourself! You are far from an actor of good standing.

Pitbull is an AWFUL rapper and how its truth when Lindsay has served more than 24 hours once? In the context of his rap he is claiming he has everything secured like Lindsay was serving a long term sentence or something.

This is her new career strategy, "a professional plaintiff of repute". Oh, and she makes a little extra money on the side by tutoring the mere stupid to become full blown dimwits, like Nicole.

This girl is a joke. What he said was true...don't like it then stop breaking the law moron.

The necklace incident was BS and everyone wanted to exploit Lindsay for their own gain. Danettte Meyers has been interviewed on HLN and regularly gives comments to Radar about high profile cases and LL's progress all thanks to Lindsay.
Lindsay plead out and did not admit guilt to avoid jail which she had already been senteced for the PV due to that incident.

I hope she keeps suing these people.
You know why?

Pretty soon no one will mention her again because they won't want the trouble.

She hasn't burned enough bridges yet. I want her to burn them all so she has no chance of a comeback.

hey sweet Nicole.. he never said it was a long sentence..
he just stated facts..
you want the truth she has jail time behind her. (house arrest is still jail time).. she has a felony arrest on her record. even though it was reduced..
she has broke the law.. and she is not even insured by the actors guild anymore. her reputation has ruined her..
everyone she gets near ends up hating her..
truth hurts huh

Her lawsuit claims, "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".

I'll bet there are at least 6 words in there that she has no idea what they mean.

Here's a problem, she was in jail. The lyric isn't spreading any lies but only stating fact. There is also the fact that music is considered art and is highly protected by the courts. This will go nowhere except give her even more bad press.

Lowball Linds at first. I think $100k for a couple scenes would be a good start. Make sure to include anal. She might not be ready yet for bukkake, although I'm sure she's had some experience with it.


I think her and Sasha would make a nice couple. Nice lesbo scene with a couple toys. Salad's delicious, I hear.


Dunno if Sasha's under contract, though. Would definitely pay at least a dollar to see that.

What is wrong with this chick? She really needs to get over herself. Is this the only way she gets money? She must sit at home during the day and read every song lyric...see every commercial etc just to see if they are using her name. She must be desperate to get her name out there to be suing over stupid crap. And the people that represent her must only see $ signs....while they laugh behind her back.//

No matter what the usual haters say, Lindsay has a right to protect herself. They used her full name without her permission in a damaging way. Lindsay is an easy target and they jumped on the band wagon.

As this was filed in New York I have no doubt it was under Dina's influence but that doesn'r matter, its about time she put a stop to this, she's been passive for too long.
