Pitbull

If Seacrest Didn't Sue Me,

Lindsay Lohan Shouldn't Either!

Pitbull is invoking the little known 'Seacrest Defense' in his legal battle with Lindsay Lohan -- claiming in new docs that if Ryan Seacrest didn't sue him for mentioning him in a song ... LiLo shouldn't either!

As TMZ first reported, Lindsay is suing Pitbull (along with Ne-Yo and Afrojack) for namedropping her in the song "Give Me Everything." She claims the lyric –– "I got it locked up like Lindsay Lohan" -- caused her "irreparable harm."

In legal docs filed this week in New York, Pitbull responded to the suit and pointed out that he rapped about Seacrest in the same song -- and noted Ryan not only didn't sue, but Pitbull performed the song as part of a New Year's Eve show ... hosted by Seacrest!

Translation -- Seacrest has a sense of humor, Lindsay does not.

Pitbull also cited the lesser known First Amendement in his bid to get the case dismissed. 

A judge has yet to rule.

"All of my dreams are possible if people would stop making me out to be this aloof, spoiled, ungrateful, lying, thieving, drunken, drug-addicted, contemptuous, hateful, disgusting, talentless, unemployed, sue-happy, manipulative, repulsive, disease-ridden, smelly, balding, snaggle-toothed, slime-laden, middle-aged looking, and unprofessional person."

People have been using Lindsay Lohans name for publicity for the last 4 years or so, mentioning Lindsay brings them attention. It seems Lindsay isn't going to take any longer. Good for her, its about time she fought back.

Lindsay Lohan Threatens Legal Action Against Man Claiming He Was Hit By Her Car 

Lindsay Lohan is putting on notice the Hookah manager who claims she hit him with her Porsche as she left a Hollywood nightclub that if he files a civil lawsuit against her the actress will counter-sue and will hold him responsible for the allegations he has made.

"Lindsay won't be taken advantage of by this opportunist, which he clearly is. The Mean Girls starlet has told her attorney, Shawn Holley, to convey to the Hookah manger's lawyer that if he files a lawsuit against her Lindsay will come back at him with everything she has," a source close to the situation tells RadarOnline.com. "Lindsay will immediately file a counter-suit against him, for libel, defamation and other claims. Lindsay is in the midst of a comeback right now and she won't let this guy try and make a quick buck off of her. If he is smart he should recognize that he has no facts to support his allegations and take this no further."

According to TMZ, Lindsay is suing under the New York civil rights laws which protects people from having their name exploited for commercial purposes.

All pitbull needs to do is show that others have used her name previously such as Eminem and that she did not sue them. You can't sue arbitrarily.

Is the "First Amendement" anything like the "First Amendment" to the US Constitution? Where is Beckerman when you need him? Hey TMZ, hey Harvey, one word: SPELLCHECK. Hell even this comment box caught it, it's tough when a comment box is smarter than the "editor" that slugged this.

There were many who saw Lindsay scrape the car and graze the guy. There was only one little girl, out after curfew, who said Lindsay was no where near the guy. WHAT? Sounds like one of the two fans of Lindsay on here. Spin, spin and spin some more. If something doesn't fit, make it up.
I once felt sorry for her, but how can I feel anything anymore when she basically is telling us FU I'm Linsay Lohan.
