Lindsay Lohan has escalated her complaint against Rockstar over allegedly improper use of her likeness in Grand Theft Auto V. In July, the actress filed suit against publisher Take-Two claiming that minor character Lacey Jonas is modeled after her.
The original 10-page complaint Lohan filed against Take-Two has been amended, weighing in now at 67 pages. In the new complaint, Lohan’s counsel indicates that Rockstar and Take-Two have not only used her image in the game, but also in marketing and merchandising.
Lohan’s legal team also claims that a “Lindsay Lohan look alike side mission” was promoted by Rockstar and reported on gaming blogs in mid-2013, though no specific website links were provided as evidence.
The complaint includes six exhibits of pictures, including both images of Lohan flashing the “peace sign” and of Grand Theft Auto V advertising that includes the bikini-clad girl allegedly modeled after the actress. In August, Take-Two responded to the original filing stating that Lohan filed the “frivolous” suit for “publicity purposes.”
Take-Two declined to comment.
