Hollywood actress Lindsay Lohan may have a thing for hip-hop artists like 50 Cent but the 25 year-old diva has sued Miami rapper Pitbull over name-checking her on his “Give Me Everything” record.
Details of the lawsuit landed online Friday (August 19) afternoon.
Lindsay Lohan has just sued the rapper Pitbull for a line in his mega-hit, “Give Me Everything,” for a disparaging lyric about her. Lindsay is pissed, claiming in her lawsuit … “the lyrics, by virtue of its wide appeal, condemnation, excoriation, disparaging or defamatory statements by the defendantsabout the plaintiff are destined to do irreparable harm to the plaintiff.” Lindsay, who claims in the lawsuit she is “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 [Lindsay] to be associated and identified in connection with defendants.” (TMZ)
Additonal reports claim Lohan is aiming to have the song’s broadcast stopped.
Lohan — who, it is noted in the suit, is “a professional actor of good repute and standing in the Screen Actors Guild” — is suing under the New York civil-rights laws, which protects individuals from having their name exploited for commercial purposes. The suit seeks an injunction to stop all the defendants — in addition to Pitbull, Ne-Yo and Afrojack, who wrote “Give Me Everything,” are named — from broadcasting the song. It also seeks unspecified damages. (MTV)
On the track, Pitbull makes a reference to Lohan’s past stint behind bars last summer.
“Hustlers move aside, so I’m tiptoeing, to keep flowing,” Pitbull raps. I got it locked up like Lindsay Lohan/Put it on my life, baby/I make it feel right, baby.” (“Give Me Everything”)
Last summer, Lohan quoted 50 Cent’s Get Rich or Die Tryin’ record, “Patiently Waiting,” prior to serving 13 days of a three-month sentence for a violation probation.
“in the words of 50 cent.. ‘You shouldn’t throw stones if you live in a glass house and if you got a glass jaw, you should watch yo mouth,” she wote Tuesday (July 13). (Lindsay Lohan’s Twitter)
