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.

wow. she is SUCH A LOSER. All she can do now to make money is sue people. She is suing people based off of her public chitty behavior. She made her own reputation, not a rap song, not a milkaholic commercial. Get a life loser.

This isn't about a person's past. This is about their present.
If it was me and my name, I should be the only one to destroy it. If someone plans to make a profit off my name, I better see some royalties.

Is she the only Lindsay Lohan in the world? If this bogus suit should go threw so she can make a quick buck, why stop the song. She could make more money if the song plays.

I really hope this bitch recovers from her drug addiction, but stupid lawsuits like this make it really hard to sympathize her. She has gotten off pretty good for all the stupid things she's done. For her to believe she has a good reputation and a line like that in that song is damaging to her is pure nonsense. She doesn't need a line like that to disparage her, she has done that all by herself. Perhaps she should sue herself.

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.

Totally agree.

@andyconda
Him saying got it "locked up" in that context while mentioning Lindsay does imply that it is a permanent, substantial or at the very least long term thing. So it is a very disparaging remark.

Eminem said something about Lindsay in one of his songs as well, this could start a whole new rap war.

I completely agree. Pitbull had no right to mention her in a rap especially when he was going to make an extremely defamatory statement like that.

"a professional actor of good repute and standing in the Screen Actors Guild.." Does she actually believe that? She must be the only person with that opinion about herself.

I actually love the song and have actually been wondering what she thought of her mention during the rap. Lawsuits and talking to puppets are the only way it seems that she is making money. LOL she is such a joke.

Rappers use celebs name all the time

Shes such a joke...needs a paycheck that bad so shes suing for them stating a fact...she would have a point if she actually was in good standing with the SAG, and she hadnt caused damage to her own character already... SHE WAS LOCKED UP!!! its not like they said she was a prostitute or something...shes just so sue happy bc thats the only way she has any money coming in...guess her e-trade money has run out...
