    Looks like someone is still running out of money... :facepalm:

    Lindsay Lohan is to launch a lawsuit against Rockstar Games over the alleged use of her image, TMZ reports.

    According to the site, Lohan's legal team is "currently crafting a lawsuit - demanding Rockstar Games pay some serious money for using Lindsay's image in the game."

    TMZ's report suggests that Lohan's legal battle is linked to a promotional image of a woman holding a mobile phone (pictured above) and a Random Event mission where "where a Lindsay Lohan look-alike asks the player to take her home and escape the paparazzi".

    It isn't known how much Lohan is seeking from Rockstar or, of course, whether there are any grounds to her claim. 80 per cent of voters on TMZ's site do not believe that the character in GTA 5 is based on Lohan.

    Lohan is the second star to have allegedly filed a legal dispute with Rockstar over GTA 5. Back in October, TMZ reported that rapper Daz Dillinger was suing Rockstar over the alleged unauthorised use of two of his tracks.

    Video of the mission is here:

    According to this story here, the model who posed for that photo is someone different:

    I haven't played GTAV yet. . . . is this character a freckled, talentless, drug-addled, daddy-issues, lumpy shaved-clam, smelly looking used up whore like Lindsay Lohan?

    If so, case won. Lord knows Hollywood only has one of those kinds of hewers laying around nowadays. :rolleyes:

    The character's name is Lacey Jonas and she's the star of romcoms and cheerleader movies. How the fuck is that anything like Lohan? And, even if it was, how the fuck is Rockstar not protected by parody laws?

    It's a shame that Rockstar can't sue for legal fees if Lohan does go forward. Unfortunately E-Trade caved and settled before a trial over the last ridiculous claim...the Lohan family are worse than Gypsies.

    I think the mission was some spoiled actress was drunk driving, you had to chase her down and get her out of there before the cops and paparazzi got to her.

    Then the dialogue in the car was hinting that it was Lohan, haven't played that mission in a while tho.

    Looks nothing like Lindsay Lohan. More like Kate Upton crossed with that chick from the early 90s whose name I can't recall... small tits, bad complexion?

    That was my first thought. I've never played GTA and the first time seeing this pic was when I clicked on this thread.

    I sure don't see much resemblance to Lohan.

    Much?

    So you see a little?

    I see none at all.

    It's a totally frivolous lawsuit to keep Lohan somehow in the public eye. Rockstar should sue her for wasting their time.
