Lindsay Lohan is suing the rapper Pitbull for using her name in his hit song “Give Me Everything.” Five months after its release, Lindsay thinks she was defamed by the rapper, who sings, “I got it locked up like Lindsay Lohan.” Ne-Yo and Afrojack, who cowrote the song, are also defendants in the case. Lohan is seeking an injunction to stop all further broadcast of the song to go along with unspecified damages.Lohan’s attorney Stephanie Ovadia told E! News, “The problem is they used her name without compensation in the song, and confused the public about whether or not she was a collaborator.”In the lawsuit, Lindsay says that “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 add that as “a professional actor of good repute and standing in the Screen Actors Guild, [she] is suing under the New York civil rights laws, which protects people from having their name exploited for commercial purposes.”DOES LINDSAY JUST WANT MONEY? Lohan filed a similar suit last year against the financial services company E-Trade after the company aired a Super Bowl commercial that referred to a baby as “That milkaholic Lindsay.” The suit was eventually withdrawn with E-Trade reportedly paying Lohan “a confidential sum.” One entertainment attorney told E! that Lindsay is likely hoping this lawsuit will result in a similar payday. The attorney said that Lindsay is probably “banking on the fact that there are sufficient conflicting opinions floating around to give this case some settlement value.”He added, “Presumably, the defendants will move to dismiss the case on the grounds that Lohan has not stated a claim for commercial appropriation. If they win that motion, as they should, that will be the end of the matter. If they lose, then a settlement in an undisclosed amount will follow quickly.”
