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.

The difference is that Lindsay no longer has talent and must live on the kindness of lawsuits.

I'm glad Pitbull is not caving in like those E-trade pansies. Lindsay has done "irreparable harm" to her own career. But, we all know she is delusional. Just OD already.

Lindsay Lohan *was* "locked up." Last I heard, you couldn't sue someone for telling the truth.

She also told SNL producers that they could go ahead and make fun of anything. I immediately thought of this lawsuit against Pitbull when I read that.

1st amendment, Oh wait! is he gay? I thought that right was only for gays. Last I remember even comedians no longer have that right. Just ask Tracy Morgan to name 1

Good riddance!    

The hooking business must not be paying all the dealers off, so it's off to sue anyone she can think of.

Seacrest has a sense of humor you're right about that TMZ! I mean, the line "Locked up like Lindsay" Oh man, what a riot! That was comical genius by this no talent douchebag pitbull who just redeemed himself with such a comedy of a line. Wooohooo! I can't even contain myself this is so funny. LOCKED UP LIKE LINDSAY! OMG TOO FUNNY, WAY TOO FUNNY. I'M TRYING TO SLEEP BUT CAN'T BECAUSE I CAN'T STOP LAUGHING AT SUCH A HILARIOUS LINE!

Its not like the world didn't already know she was locked up. And it is unbelievable that she would accuse this song of causing her "irreparable harm". It was her own actions that have ruined her reputation and her career. This song came out years after she started digging her own hole. This is why I don't believe for a second that she wants to get her life together. If she did, she would accept responsibility for the state of her life and not try to claim that song lyrics are the reason she might have trouble landing a job.
