Just one post ago I thought Lindsay Lohan was on the verge of losing her livelihood, but I had forgotten about her frivolous lawsuits. Luckily she just filed one against Pittbul, Ne-Yo, and Afrojack for–brace yourself–defamation of character, because of a line in the song ‘Give Me Everything’ which says…
“Hustlers move aside, so I’m tiptoein’, to keep flowin’
I got it locked up like Lindsay Lohan.”
Lindsay feels this is slanderous because, other than being in jail 5 times, in a court ordered rehab facility twice, and spending 32 days under house arrest, she’s never been “locked up”. And so she’s suing.
“…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.”
“(Lohan), 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 (her) to be associated and identified in connection with defendants.”
I think the bigger problem might be that Lindsay has been in court 11 times in the past 14 months. So really she should sue the district attorney for always freaking out every time she kidnaps someone or steals a necklace or gets high. They’re really making her look bad.
