Lindsay Lohan Sues “Grand Theft Auto” Makers

 

On Wednesday, July 2, famed actress Lindsay Lohan filed suit in a Manhattan court against Take-Two Interactive, the makers of  the “Grand Theft Auto” videogame series.  Lohan alleges that the latest game contains a character bearing her image and scandalous character.

 

The character, Lacey Jonas, from “Grand Theft Auto V,” is an in-game celebrity that players help along on missions.  Lohan claims this character is a re-creation of her image, voice, and clothing-line styles.  The game also features a mission where the character needs help fleeing paparazzi.

 

“Grand Theft Auto V” debuted in September of 2013 and sold over $800 million in its first day.  Take-Two Interactive, and its subsidiary, Rockstar Games, declined comment as it is against company policy.
