Lindsay Lohan

Goes After 'GTAV'

Lindsay Lohan
has called in her lawyers to take action against 'Grand Theft Auto V' ... claiming video game honchos jacked her image without her permission ... TMZ has learned.

Sources tell us, Lohan's lawyers are currently crafting a lawsuit -- demanding Rockstar Games pay some serious money for using Lindsay's image in the game.

So the question ... did 'GTAV' really use Lindsay.  Here's the evidence:

 -- The video game cover shows a woman holding a cellphone who looks Lindsay-ish.  There's been debate over whether it looks more like Kate Upton or Shelby Welinder.

 -- Part of the game features a mission where a Lindsay Lohan look-alike asks the player to take her home and escape the paparazzi

 -- Another part of the game shows another Lindsay-like character at a hotel resembling the Chateau Marmont hotel in West Hollywood -- a place Lindsay not only frequents but once lived at -- and the mission is to photograph her having sex on camera.

No word on whether 'GTAV' execs will pay Lindsay or tell her
lawyers to pound sand.

So we gotta ask:

Funny Lying Lindsay hasn't been a blonde in what two years now

Is that why "The Junkie" posted a pic of her playboy, photo shopped picture on her instagram last night when she was a blonde

Bwahahhaahahhahahahhaha! Lying Lindsay needs to be locked up in a nut house

Having played the game since it's launch and having seen the pic in question, I can honestly say I never once thought it was parodying Lindsay Lohan. I thought it was more of a parody of the stereotypical life of a celebrity, in general.

No mention or reference to LiLo, just her imagination or guilt. She'll lose this case.

I have this game. First off no way the red bikini chick is her. There is a character Poppy Mitchell who looks nothing like Lindsay and is just a parody of the typical spoiled Hollywood druggie club type. Nice Lindsay thinks its her haha.

There is a mission though (if you don't want to be spoiled stop reading now) where Poppy goes on a high speed chase and crashes her car into a palm tree drunk (sound familiar?) She gets arrested but unlike Lindsay Poppy actually end up in prison.

Also Shelby Welinder has already confirmed that she is the woman in the bikini.

OT. Just finished watching Bears at Vikings. Vikings won with a minute left in overtime. I'm exhausted. Whew, what a game. AP over 200 yards rushing and went over 10,000 career yards. Quite an accomplishment.

The two images above look more like ripoffs of Megan Fox bending over the car, with blonde hair instead.

Parody is 100 percent protected under the First Amendment. But this isn't Lindsay anyway.

I wonder what took Lindsay so long to sue. The first shots of the game came out last year, and the game has been out for almost three months. I remember mentioning this would probably happen last year, and people just called me names and gave me hate checks, oh well

GTAV also stole Lindsay's purse which had $10,000 in it.

Love DListed's version of this story.

The only character in Grand Theft Auto that resembles Lindsay Lohan’s face is a car…after a criminal has smashed in the window with a baseball bat. NO! The truth is there’s no way Rockstar Games could create a Lindsay Lohan character if they tried; video game developers simply don’t have the technology to capture the unique beauty and essence of a Lohan. There isn’t a program that makes a person’s eyes drowsy and glassy (and one half-closed most of the time), and there’s no code to prevent her character from going on a grand theft rampage ad stealing everything in the game that wasn’t nailed down.

Wait, did I just think of a great idea for a new video game? Grand Theft Lohans. Basically you could play as either Ali (easy), Lindsay (hard) Dina (expert level) and you’d have missions like trying to score coke in Provo, UT or navigating a DUI checkpoint. When you successfully complete missions, you unlock bonus characters like Nana Lohan, or a disappointed Tina Fey. Rockstar, I’m available anytime to talk.

That's funny, I remember that mission. This character could have easily been Paris, Lindsey, Amanda or one of hundreds of actresses in the news. I think its inspired on the concept of typical "hollywood bad-girl actress" but not per say a clone of someone in particular.
