Lindsay Lohan has filed suit against a video game maker, alleging that the company based the likeness of a character on her.

The actress filed suit Wednesday in a Manhattan court against Take-Two Interactive Software Inc. and its subsidiaries Rockstar Games and Rockstar North over the character of Lacey Jones from the game "Grand Theft Auto V."

According to the suit, Lohan alleges the company based the character on her and "incorporated her image, likeness, clothing, outfits, Plaintiff's clothing line products, ensemble in the form of hats, hair style, sunglasses, jean shorts worn by Plaintiff that were for sale to the public at least two years before the Defendant's release of the GTA V game."

The suit goes on to say that "the game also features Hotel Chateau (Marmont) in West Hollywood, a place where the Plaintiff once lived and often frequents."

So in the GTV game, does this Lacey Jones character get drunk and arrested all the time? If so, I’d say Lindsay has a good grounds for a suit.

The game features a drug-crazed, no-talent skeezer? Sue, Lindsay, sue!

So she wants to go to court. Would she feel the same way if she knew Laz was in charge of "discovery"?

My niece, Molley Fahey-Matonti was the model used by the video game company. They incorporated many parts of her really life habits, walk, body language and used her voice in the game. A few months ago when this “threat” of a lawsuit appeared she was contacted by the company and asked to be ready to testify to whole process of being a video game girl.

Seems like a hollow threat on LL part. Must be 100,000 blonde girls running around both coasts that fit this description.

She is. And just in case anyone says it takes one to know one, they're right! (-:

Yea, oral favors and and crack smoking does tend to give one’s voice a tinge of uniqueness.

C’mon, Lindsay, you were a generic freckle faced kid, a generic tween and teen, and now you’re a generic twenty-something tramp. You’re what a computer program for generic would create!

I think the kiddies would be interested in whether Lacy gets drunk and flashes her kitty for the paparazzi, before getting arrested.
