Lindsay Lohan Goes After 'Grand Theft Auto V'

#1


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.

Running low on cash Lohan? This sounds like a reach, who knows though.

She said she was flattered that they used her likeness for TLOU but it wasn't appreciated because she was trying to promote Beyond.

Over defense fanboys took that as "snarky" somehow.
Fixed.

:lol there was a gif on Reddit a while ago showing an overlay of Kate Upton over the GTA gal, and the face and body were virtually identical.

Edit: may have been the photo gogogow posted above.

With her saying she was flattered and everyone forgetting about it immediately after? Guess we'll see.

Flattered about having a naked, virtual version of you in a video game?

I thought this was going to be about the girl being arrested.

As others have said, the girl with the cell phone is more like Kate Upton. I can't believe Lohan really thinks she looks like that.
