Mean Girls and The Parent Trap actress Lindsay Lohan is planning to sue Rockstar Games, claiming the developer used her image without permission for Grand Theft Auto V.
That's according to a TMZ report, which claims Lohan's lawyers are in the process of drafting a lawsuit against Rockstar Games that demands "serious money."
No official lawsuit has been filed yet, so it is unclear which part or component of GTAV featured a likeness that Lohan claims is similar to her own.
TMZ points out that GTAV's box art features a woman holding a cellphone who somewhat resembles Lohan. The game also features a mission that has players taking home a Lohan-esque character to escape the paparazzi.
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.
We've reached out to Rockstar Games and parent company Take-Two Interactive for comment.
If Lohan does indeed sue Rockstar over GTAV, her lawsuit would not be the first the game has faced legal action since its record-setting launch in September. Rapper Daz Dillinger accused Rockstar in October of using two of his songs in the game without permission, demanding that Rockstar give him more money for the songs or destroy all remaining unsold copies of GTAV.
