Lindsay Lohan has filed a lawsuit against rapper Pitbull because she’s not happy with one of his lyrics. During the song “Give me everything,” Pitbull makes a reference about Lindsay and being locked up and she’s not too happy about it! Lindsay is saying that he is exploiting her for commercial purposes and that she is a “professional actor of good repute.” The lawsuit seems kind of absurd to me, especially since he didn’t say anything the world didn’t already know about,Â it’s not like he lied about her being locked up and I’m not sure if she really still has a good reputation anymore. Read more and the exact lyric after the jump.
The song — written by Ne-Yo and Afrojack, also defendants — has a line:
Hustlers move aside, so I’m tiptoein’, to keep flowin’
I got it locked up like Lindsay Lohan.
Lindsay is pissed, claiming in her lawsuit … “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.”
Lindsay, who claims in the lawsuit she is “a professional actor of good repute and standing in the Screen Actors Guild, is suing under the New York civil rights laws, which protects people from having their name exploited for commercial purposes.
Lindsay alleges the appearance of her name in the song “causes [Lindsay] to be associated and identified in connection with defendants.”
The suit — filed by Stephanie Ovadia — seeks an injunction to stop all of the defendants from broadcasting the song. It also seeks unspecified damages. Ovadia is the same lawyer who filed the E*TRADE lawsuit on Lindsay’s behalf, which settled for a confidential sum.
