Lindsay Lohan Sues Grand Theft Auto Makers, Claims Character Based on Her

If you’ve played Grand Theft Auto V (and based on the sales, most of you have), then you know there’s a character in the game called Lacey Jonas who bares an odd resemblance to Lindsay Lohan. Well, guess what? Lohan sued the makers of GTA V for, as she alleges, modeling this crazy character on her.

In the game, Jonas is a bit of a ditz and is both vain and whiny. Lohan claims that this character was clearly based on her, saying the game “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.”

There’s also a hotel in the game based on the real-life hotel where Lohan got banned from.

You can check out this gameplay video of a mission involving Lacey Jonas to get some idea of who the character’s supposed to be:
