What better way to earn yourself a quick buck than to sue a video game company that just made more than a billion on their latest game. Hollywood actress Lindsay Lohan is taking Rockstar to court over the alleged sin of the studio using her likeness in the game without her permission.
Or perhaps, I should say it was her lawyers because I can’t see Miss Lohan in the sound mind to even think of such a course.
According to celebrity gossip website TMZ these are the charges her lawyers are placing on Rockstar:
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.
There is also a third charge and that is of the studio using Lohan’s likeness in the cover character. The last one is really interesting because following the game’s release, model Shelby Welinder claimed that it was her and she even showed a Rockstar pay-cheque as proof.
While her claims are yet to be proven, the web wildly believes the cover character to be model Kate Upton instead.
Either way, she has called out Rockstar and we’ll have to see how the studio responds. However, before any legal verdicts arrive, we want the opinion of the public so we ask the question:
