As a bizarre 28th birthday present to herself, Lindsay Lohan officially filed her lawsuit against the makers of Grand Theft Auto V this morning despite it being proven completely horseshit back in December when she was drumming up press. Yahoo! Finance reports:
Lohan’s suit says a character named Lacey Jonas is an “unequivocal” reference to the “Mean Girls” and “Freaky Friday” star.
The suit says Lohan’s image, voice and styles from her clothing line are depicted. It says the game features West Hollywood’s Chateau Marmont hotel, where Lohan once lived.
I’m not going to waste my time going over this again, but to anyone even remotely familiar with celebrities, the character is a blatant satirical mash-up of Paris Hilton, Britney Spears and, yes, Lindsay Lohan who are all public figures and subject to such. As for the game featuring Chateau Marmont, it has, again, a satirical version of it – with a completely different name – and I know Lindsay would love to believe she’s super synonymous with the place, but literally every fucking celebrity in Hollywood parties and stays there at any given moment. As for why her lawyer hasn’t explained to her that this case is dead right out of the gate, sometimes it’s fun to work pro bono. (Pro bono is Latin for “bongs the dick,” right? I could never make it through John Grisham novels.)
