Lindsay Lohan loses lawsuit over Grand Theft Auto character she reckons looks like her

News 01/04/2018

Lindsay Lohan has lost an appeal in her lawsuit against the publisher of hit video game Grand Theft Auto V.

The Mean Girls actress had accused Take-Two Interactive of using her likeness in the game, and using her image to drive its record-breaking sales.

Two characters got Lohan's attention - Lacey Jonas, an actress the player helps hide from the paparazzi, and an unnamed bikini-clad woman giving the peace sign, used in the game's loading screen and promotional materials.

She lost the original case in 2016, and appealed - but the courts have now ruled against her once and for all.

Six judges of the New York Court of Appeals upheld the ruling. They said Lacey Jonas character was not "reasonably identifiable" as Lohan.

"The artistic renderings are indistinct, satirical representations of the style, look, and persona of a modern, beach-going young woman."

Lohan could theoretically appeal to the US Supreme Court, but failing that, her case against Take-Two Interactive is likely over.
