Lindsay Lohan Sues Grand Theft Auto V

Art imitating life -- if ever there was an example.

Art imitating life — if ever there was an example.

In what has to be a dire attempt to get back in the spotlight comes teen-star turned crack-ho trollop Lindsay Lohan. She has nothing better to do these days than … well, lines … so I’m sure she and her near-out-of-work publicist are taking in a few video games to pass the time.

And that’s when the epiphany struck and a PR story was born.

Broken by trash diggers and snoop shooters TMZ.com, “LiLo” (as the kids in rehab call her) insists that’s her on the game and no one asked her permission to use her image. There’s even part of a game that “features a mission where a Lindsay Lohan look-alike asks the player to take her home and escape the paparazzi.” So, naturally, the report is the former ‘Mean Girl’ wants to sue Rockstar Games for a truckload of cash.

Rumor is Lohan also noticed GTAV also features a mission at a hotel resembling Chateau Marmont in West Hollywood — a place where Lohan visits often and lived for a period of time. No word on if this mysterious character goes on a cocaine binge in the game, but reporters are digging.
