Lindsay Lohan is not backing down on her legal pursuit over Grand Theft Auto V, submitting nearly 70 pages of new evidence in her case against Rockstar Games. She’s claiming the developer used her likeness – without permission – to create a character in last year’s game. Predictably, Rockstar says she’s mistaken.
Lohan originally claimed that the illustrated woman, used in merchandise and promotions for the game, was based on her. After Welinder’s announcement, her lawyers have changed tack, instead claiming that Welinder got the job because she is a “look-alike model”, and the campaign was designed to “evoke the persona and image” of Lohan.
Lawyers referred to a 2007 picture of Lohan, posing under house arrest in a red bikini and ankle monitor, labelling it the inspiration for the Rockstar character.
