Lindsay Lohan has filed a civil lawsuit against Rockstar Games, the makers of Grand Theft Auto 5, with the State Supreme Court in New York on Wednesday for allegedly using her likeness without her permission, the Los Angeles Times reports.

The cover art of the game features a blonde woman, who looks similar to Lohan, in a bikini holding a cell phone. However, there has also been debate about whether the character resembles models Kate Upton or Shelby Welinder more.

"The portraits of the Plaintiff [Lohan] incorporated her image, likeness, clothing, outfits, Plaintiff's clothing line products, ensemble in the form of hats, hair style, sunglasses, jean shorts worn by the Plaintiff that were for sale to the public at least two years," the suit reads.

Out and proud celebrities

There is also a part of the game where the character that looks like Lohan, Lacey Jonas, asks the player to take her home and help her evade the paparazzi. Sound familiar?

Another part of the game shows another lookalike female character at a hotel resembling the famous Chateau Marmont in Los Angeles — a spot that Lohan frequents and where she once lived. The mission in that part of the game is to photograph the character having sex on camera.

Do you think Lohan has a strong case against the makers of Grant Theft Auto 5?
