Lindsay Lohan sets lawyers on Grand Theft Auto 5
Actress believes game stole her likeness
An American gossip site is reporting that actress Lindsay Lohan, best known for her early roles in Mean Girls and The Parent Trap, has instructed her lawyers to put together a lawsuits against Grand Theft Auto V developer Rockstar.
TMZ reported that Lohan has three major complaints against the game: the side mission where the players helps an actress called "Lacey Jonas" escape the paparazzi; the Paparazzo missions that feature a starlet name Poppy Mitchell who stays at a Vinewood version of the Chateau Marmont hotel; and the the use of her physical likeness for the bikini girl marketing material.
Lohan claims these incidents used her images without her permission, though in the last instance model Shelby Welinder has come forward to claim she was the model for the bikini image and brandished a Rockstar invoice to prove it.
Neither Lohan or Rockstar have confirmed or denied the legal action so far.
