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:

Bwahhahahahhahhaha!! From CB


LMFAO to what is said about her photo op and food pics


Here are some photos of Lindsay Lohan, taken from her Instagram over the past week. She was doing a photo shoot (she claims) for Elle Indonesia, and then she was allegedly “cooking” and posting the gross food photos on Instagram as well. What in the world is in that casserole dish? It looks like cat barf covered in marshmallows. Ew. Anyway, Lindsay is scheming to get back in the headlines for something other than partying and/or relapsing. So, she’s decided to start suing people again. Remember when Lindsay just sued everyone who even dared breathe the name “Lindsay” in public? Well, that’s sort of happening again. According to TMZ, Lindsay is about to sue the makers of Grand Theft Auto. And yes, this is just about as dumb as you can get:

Side-step the whole issue of the fact that Lindsay Lohan was actually an active participant in a real-life Grand Theft Auto (remember when she hijacked a car when she was all coked up?). The game doesn’t give these characters names. And having blonde famewhore-type characters in a video game isn’t enough because – let’s be honest – those women are a dime a dozen in LA (and NYC, and every major city). I’m including a photo of the selfie-taking character below… um, that’s not Lindsay. I would believe it was Kate Upton before I would believe it was The Cracken.

Anyway, I think it’s far more likely that Lindsay simply wants A) attention and B) a quick and easy settlement from Rockstar Games. I doubt she has much of a case, but if Rockstar Games wanted to fight it, it could take forever and they might think it’s just easier to pay her off with a low-ball (heh) settlement. Which she would then take and blow up her nose. Then she would steal another car and continue to LIVE the real-life Grand Theft Auto. The Circle of Life.

" Lindsay Lohan Goes After 'Grand Theft Auto V' http://tmz.me/IwfYx7 ” I voted yes it was her . Support Lindsay #Lilovers


Wow, there's a real surprise. Nuthouse Nibbler more interested in supporting a junkie and her criminal, thieving claims than to make sure other people (Rockstar Games) aren't unjustly accused.

Typical Nicole - doesn't matter what crimes Lohan commits, as long as she gets whatever she wants.

F You, Nicole.

There is a legal clause that pops up every time the game loads that keeps R* out of trouble.

Lohan's desperation is clearly showing now. And let me tell you, I'm not ashamed to say it makes me totally happy. The word "schadenfreude" was invented just for us to enjoy with regards to Lohan.


Lohan wants her career back - the one where she supposedly "acts" in front of a film camera - and yet, it's not happening. She's been given so many legs up, she's been to 6 rehabs, been given $100,000 by Sheen for her taxes, didn't go to jail again for breaking her last probation, was given 2 million for an interview and subsequent docu-series where all she has to do is show up, she was given a $16,000 a month apartment paid for by Oprah, she was given two assistants and a stylist, she was given the good will of the press for a good long while, and all she had to do was get a job in the movies for a comeback. That - and be sober.

And she's done neither of those. No one will hire her, and she definitely has not been sober (MiLo can suck my dick). She's not shown up to scheduled shoots for Oprah, partied like a clown, been rude, and mean and nasty and drunk and back on Adderall and posting sexy, narcissistic selfies (because no one else will) and finally back to her humiliating and old hosting parties at nightclubs job - and now she realizes something...


She is doomed to be a National Joke for the rest of her life because she has used up all her chances. So what does she have left? Sue, baby sue. And how she flatters herself! The girl in GTA is actually not her because she has no dirty tattoos on her hands, she isn't falling down drunk, or puking in the bushes, or croaking like a frog, or saying "move that cone, I'm Lacey", or yelling for people to pay attention to her, or punching women in the face, or stealing bracelets from old women.


Now if it really was Lohan - then she would knock the motorcycle driver unconscious and steal his bike and go on a joy ride through Santa Monica screaming "I'm a celebrity! They're not going to do anything to me." and then after getting caught - she blames the "Black Guy". If that happened she would have a case.


No, Lohan is desperate - suing GTA - this is the only option she has left to get a little crack money.

If she really thinks that is what she looks like, she must be on the bottle again.

TMZ these are the only things I would like to know about Lohan.
1. How much did Oprah REALLY pay Lindsay.
2. Did Lindsay actually fulfill her commitment to the Oprah project?
3. Will the Lindsay saga ever really show on TV or will Oprah not show it as punishment for Lindsay falling off the wagon and making Oprah look stupid?
4. If Oprah paid Lindsay even a fraction of the supposed 2 million where did it go?
5. Shouldn't there have been more evidence of Lindsay falling out of bars and clubs or sneaking into Hotels with Johns by now? Or are you as sick of Lindsay as we are and finally had enough?
6. And finally, shouldn't the girl that really was the inspiration for the charater in the video be able to sue Lindsay for trying to steal her thunder and make money off of her image?
