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.

does this mean zach galifianakis gets to sue Hot Chelle Rae? We still have 1st Ammendment rights in this country. You were in jail -- a commonly known fact. The name isn't being used to "sell" the song. It's a lyric contained within the song. Is Mick Jagger going after Ke$ha or Christina Aguilera/Adam Levine??? No. Why?? Because they aren't retarded sue-happy blowhards who's main source of income these days is photo opps and lawsuits. P.S. How "good" is your standing with SAG if you don't even have your health insurance any more??

"defamatory statements by the defendants about the plaintiff are destined to do irreparable harm to the plaintiff." - She does irreparable harm to HERSELF! give me a break. I hope the judge throws that out.

hahahahahaha....best line in the paperwork: "An actor of GOOD STANDING." Umm....I think NOT MS Lohan! But, nice try to spin it your way. STFU and go away. No one cares about you anymore and we don't really care if your feelings are hurt over a line in a rap song. BFD. Grow up and realize that all this is DUE TO YOUR BEHAVIOUR, DRUG ABUSE AND CHOICES YOU MADE. Not our fault you don't like being so hated. LOL!

All he has to say is that it's meant as a compliment to her...he's handling everything he has to deal with perfectly...just like Lindsy Lohan does. She's got all her stuff in order...she's got it locked up!

Hope the court doesn't waste time on stupid stuff like this.

@susan and Nicole

If lindsay is suing for this, isn't what Glee said worse? And if she didn't sue for that, how can she sue for this? Seems to me if you're going to sue, you have to sue all instances. You can't pick and choose.
Here is what Glee said:
"Lindsay Lohan is totally crazy, right?" And "How many times has Lindsay Lohan been to rehab?"

She's not the first person to ever be made fun of in a song and she won't be the last. She's not special and she's not "off limits". Why this song? Why these artists? If she's so upset about it, why hasn't she sued EVERY late night talk show host and comic who's taken a stab at her over the last... .five years. This is a joke and so is she. She needs to get over herself... seriously.

I think she's right to go on the offensive about her reputation, but I seriously think this case will do her more harm than good. For several reasons: Anyone who's used pop culture references in their music or art will be against it, as a matter of principle - that's whole chunks of the music and entertainment industry (i.e. Hollywood), and anyone who is pro-first amendment. That's a great deal of people. The really (in my opinion) dumb bit is J Records is owned by Sony Music Entertainment whose parent company is Sony Corporation of America, who have a rather large stake in Hollywood. Could be she gets lucky like E-Trade and they settle rather than go through an expensive court case, but think about who she would be taking money from. It's not Pitbull.
