Lindsey Lohan is still after that GTA V money

2 min read


Guys. Stay away from drugs. They will ruin your life. Not only will they break your brain, but they can also be expensive. That’s obviously the real reason Lindsey Lohan is so intent on suing GTA V maker Rockstar; she’s run out of her allotted crack budget.

Last year, we reported that the actress was suing Rockstar for including her likeness in the game, without coughing up anything in the way of royalties. Her lawyers claim that she’s represented in the game in 3 ways:

  • Escorting actress Lacey Jonas away from the paparazzi
  • Taking hidden photographs of an actress at the fictional version of the Chateau Marmont, a hotel that Lohan frequently visits.
  • Cover and promotional art which allegedly bears a striking resemblance to Lohan.

When last we heard, Rockstar found the suit to be frivolous, with its lawyers saying it was “so legally meritless that it lacks any good-faith basis and can only have been filed for publicity purposes”. Well, Lohan is now trying to go in for the kill.

Her lawyers have produced another 45 pages of documentation, saying that there is a “common interest among all celebrities, actors, singers, and athletes … to protect their likeness and personas from misappropriation by unscrupulous merchandisers.”

They also claim that the blonde lady on the game’s promotional and  cover art is a modelled after Lohan. that in itself is ludicrous, because the lady on the cover doesn’t look like a meth addict. Besides which, model Shelby Wellinder has confirmed the lady was modelled after her, something she’s proven with a paycheck.

I still think that she looks more like Kate Upton than anybody else. GTA V is being re-released next month for the new generation consoles, with a PC version coming in January.

Editor. I’m old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time – they were capable of being masterpieces. I’m here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.

    This makes me wonder, if some artist draws a picture of a celeb, does the celeb own rights to that picture.

    Murica law, sheesh!

    • Sir Rants A Lot Llew

      Actually in a sense yes. You may not use someone’s likeness without their express permission.

      • I drew a picture of Apocalypse while I was in high school. Would Marvel be able to sue the bejesus outta me, for that?

        • Sir Rants A Lot Llew

          If you made money out of it yes. Of course.

    The last line of your article matches perfectly with the header. Both so horrendous they make me want to drink. 😛

    More publicity for ROCKSTAR,
    In fact, I think the ROCKSTAR marketing department actually use news headlines to market their games.
    From the Clinton court case, Jack Thompson (Im sure Rockstar created this character) Hot Coffee, FOX NEWS and now this Hollywood actress.

    More sales for ROCKSTAR. sweet.

      Maybe you should read what you just wrote, Fox News ? They are a news network who is owned by media mogul, Rupert Murdoch. They represent right wing Ideology in a somewhat notorious fashion. Basically they are naysayers against liberal values. They hate Obama, They are religious zealots, Gun loving school shooting denying racist fucks. They think global warming is a myth. Their viewership is mainly the older generation of upper middle class white America and the super rich ,The so-called one percent. They think Obamacare is socialist. Imagine that, Free healthcare…… The only reason they have jumped on the video game causes violence bandwagon is because they are trying to shift the debate of the sanity of selling assault weapons to the general public into another realm, Video games are the real problem. They are one of the worst entities in media today. Yet you somehow trivialize their evil by maintaining that Rockstar created them to provide publicity for their games. Gain some perspective man. There is much more to our world than video-games.

        Wow. You missed his point by a damn league. By ten damn leagues. Shit, you missed his point by an uber mile. An uber mile doesn’t even exist. But that’s the word I had to create because nothing could adequately describe by how much you failed to hit the mark on this.


        • Darren Peach

          Point taken. I just scanned his comment.

          • SargonTheGreatPandaOfAkkad

        I can picture this as a Gary Larson cartoon… the internet exploding with the caption “Not content with missing zeroes, Geoff started losing ones too”
