News: Pitbull Bites Back At Lindsay Lohan, Messy "Give Me Everything" Lawsuit
Monday, Mar 19, 2012 8:53AM
Miami rapper Pitbull has lashed back at Hollywood actress Lindsay Lohan in light of a 2011 lawsuit where she alleged one of his lyrics created "irreparable harm" to her well-being.
According to reports, Pitbull has resorted to legal action in order to address the matter.
As TMZ first reported, Lindsay is suing Pitbull (along with Ne-Yo and Afrojack) for namedropping her in the song "Give Me Everything." She claims the lyric -- "I got it locked up like Lindsay Lohan" -- caused her "irreparable harm." In legal docs filed this week in New York, Pitbull responded to the suit and pointed out that he rapped about Ryan Seacrest in the same song -- and noted Seacrest not only didn't sue, but Pitbull performed the song as part of a New Year's Eve show ... hosted by Seacrest! Translation -- Seacrest has a sense of humor, Lindsay does not. Pitbull also cited the lesser known First Amendement in his bid to get the case dismissed. A judge has yet to rule. (TMZ)
The rapper initially filed a counter lawsuit last November.
He's filed a countersuit, claiming that her multiple prison sentences support the lyric, and also that Lohan was ineligible to file the original suit in New York, since she is demonstrably a resident of California. (Because, well, she spends a lot of time in its jails.) Memo to clubs of the greater Los Angeles area: This is definitely not the week to resurrect "Give Me Everything." (New York Mag)
Back in August, Lohan ignored Pitbull's initial apology for mentioning her on wax.
Lindsay Lohan was unmoved by Pitbull's explanation of the hilarious diss of her in his song "Give Me Everything." Or by his invite to the VMAs Sunday night. Sources close to Lohan say she has no interest in going to the VMAs - which Pit invited her to as a show of good faith - and his apology had no impact. The lawsuit is moving forward, and ridiculous.

Pit also said he did not fully understand Lohan's lawsuit against him.
"I was very surprised to me when I found out about the lawsuit," the soft-spoken rapper, who's real name is Armando Christian PĂ©rez, told Univision News. "It was very ironic." Pitbull, 30, said he's supported Lohan's career and wasn't meaning to disparage her name in the context of the song, as "everything about this record is so positive." Pitbull clarified that when he said she's "got it locked up," it means she runs every aspect of her life. He pointed out how, despite her issues, she's stayed popular throughout, noting the song helped keep her "relevant" with its' non-stop airplay internationally. (RadarOnline)
