Lindsay Lohan has lost her battle with the makers of hit video game Grand Theft Auto V for creating a character which she claimed shared her likeness. On Thursday, it stated that Lacey was a generic 20-something Hollywood girl who looked nothing like Lohan.
A spokesman for Lohan had declined for a comment, and her lawyer Frank Delle Donne was not immediately available for comment. The court found, however, that the character in question, Lacey Jonas, "is not recognizable as plaintiff inasmuch as ..."
The Grand Theft Auto franchise has almost always used a good looking, scantily clad, suggestive cartoon women in their promotional material or for loading scenes. "Lacey says that she has so many fans that "they could fill the entire country of Africa", including one fan who sent his own junk to her in a box".
"When Lawyer.com first reached out to me, I was confused and a little scared because I thought I was in trouble", Lohan said.
For instance, in 2010, Lohan sued E-Trade over a Super Bowl ad that featured a "milkaholic" baby named Lindsay.
Lohan initially followed up with a lawsuit against Take-Two, which as mentioned above, was rejected in 2016.

Facebook's Archibong said developers who are caught misusing personally-identifiable information will be banned from the platform.
The case then went up another step on the appellate ladder - with the Motion Picture Association of America, the Entertainment Software Association, and the American Booksellers Association supporting Take-Two's position against Lohan.
In its motion to dismiss, the software company also alleged in their defense that the 31-year-old star has a "history of misusing the legal system".
In view of the above, the Court of Appeals has concluded that the case was rightfully dismissed in 2014.
The New York court also upheld a ruling dismissing a similar lawsuit to Lohan's filed by Karen Gravano, the daughter of former Mafia underboss and Federal Bureau of Investigation informant Sammy "The Bull" Gravano.
