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 seriously believes she is an actor of good standing and repute? Wow those drugs have done irreparable damage to her psyche. I can't believe she is in such good standing that she has to seek a legal payout. Most actors who have good standing and repute in the acting community have solid jobs and a great film library to back them up. The girl needs to give it up. Lindsay, you're an addict. Your behavior in public and in private back these truths up. If you don't like what you are hearing then I say you need to change your behavior and stop asking the courts to help you inflate your completely deflated ego. You are very ill, in my humble opinion.

Hey she has a point. If she used their full name like that they'd turn around and sure her. The woman has problems but she still has the same rights as everyone else. I hope she wins this one.

I guess this is the only way this skanky ho can make money these days. Sue e-trade, rappers and peddle penny auctions that are the biggest fraud on the internet. Go Linds! You got my respect...NOT.

So is this the best way she's come up with to maintain her income - frivolous lawsuits? WTF is defamatory or disparaging about THE TRUTH?!!!!! She has, in fact, been locked up before. "Professional actor of good repute" my a**!!!! The claim that this reference = "exploitation for commercial purposes" is straight bullsh**. PLEASE - JUST FADE AWAY, ALREADY.

I'm not sure how it's defamatory when she was actually "locked up". Her own actions have defamed her, not the lyric. However, she does have a point about the civil rights law. Pitbull will probably settle.
