Lindsay Lohan is going to court again, but it’s not about any legal problems with breaking the law, it’s about a lawsuit she has filed against rapper Pitbull over some lyrics that poke fun at the actress.
The songs co-writers, Ne-Yo and Afrojack, have also been named in the suit. In the “Give me Everything” song, the actress takes exception to the lyric that reads “Hustlers move aside, so I’m tiptoein’, to keep flowin’; I got it locked up like Lindsay Lohan.”
Lohan not amused by the reference to her legal troubles over the years filed her suit claiming, “The lyrics, by virtue of its wide appeal, condemnation, excoriation, disparaging or defamatory statements by the defendants about the plaintiff are destined to do irreparable harm to the plaintiff.” The documents suggest Lohan is “a professional actor of good repute and standing in the Screen Actors Guild,” and her lawyers state she is suing under “the New York civil rights laws, which protects people from having their name exploited for commercial purposes.”
Lohan is seeking unspecified damages but is said to be also looking for an injunction to stop the playing of the song. Lohan’s attorney in the case, Stephanie Ovadia, said, “The problem is they used her name without compensation in the song, and confused the public about whether or not she was a collaborator.” She recently has been trying to clean up her reputation as a problem star.
We can only wait to see what the outcome will be in the Lindsay Lohan lawsuit against Pitbull. Some experts believe that a judge will toss it.Stay Connected
