Lindsay Lohan sues over Grand Theft Auto character

LINDSAY Lohan is suing the creators of 'Grand Theft Auto'.

The 'Mean Girls' actress - who turned 28 today - has finally hit the video game makers with a civil lawsuit after they allegedly used her image for a character named Lacey Jonas without her permission.

The star's lookalike alter-ego parties at infamous celebrity haunt, the Hotel Chateau Marmont in West Hollywood, "a place where the plaintiff once lived and often frequents", according to the case documents.

According to the New York Post newspaper's Page Six column, the troubled actress is coming after game creators Take-Two Interactive for an unspecified sum of money.

Lindsay has been threatening legal action since December, shortly after the fifth installment of the video game was released, and is annoyed because companies usually pay to copy her likeness.

The legal papers claim the "game features a mission where the plaintiff's look-alike asks another character to take her home and escape the paparazzi" and features a character sporting the same " likeness, clothing, outfits, clothing line products, ensemble in the form of hats, hair style, sunglasses, jean shorts worn by [Lohan]...before the release of the GTA V video game."

The video game cover also strikingly resembles a famous picture of Lindsay in a swimsuit taking a selfie and making a peace sign.

The gaming company has declined to comment.
