Video game makers: Lohan sued us for attention
NEW YORK (AP) — The makers of the “Grand Theft Auto” video games say Lindsay Lohan sued to get attention when she asserted the games’ latest installment features a character based on her.
In Manhattan court papers made public Tuesday, Take-Two Interactive Software Inc. and subsidiary Rockstar Games call the case frivolous and maintain it was “filed for publicity purposes.” They want it dismissed and want the “Mean Girls” star to pay their legal fees.
Lohan’s lawyer didn’t immediately return a call seeking comment.
Lohan sued in July over “Grand Theft Auto V.” Her suit says the game uses her image, voice and style and evokes her via a character named Lacey Jonas.
Take-Two says her voice, name and likeness aren’t used, and the character resembles her only in being a young, blonde woman.
