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.
