A report on TMZ claims that shining diamond Lindsay Lohan "has called in her lawyers" to take legal action over her supposed portrayal in Grand Theft Auto V.

I'll give you a moment to collect yourselves.

She's apparently going to demand that Rockstar and Take-Two pay her for using her likeness. No word on specific instances, but TMZ believes part of the issue is that the game's swimsuit-clad cover star is based on Lohan's appearance. Even though it's not, that honour going to model Shelby Welinder.

They also point out a couple of the game's paparazzi missions, but anyone who's played the game will know those aren't exactly trading off Lohan's explicit reputation, instead opting for more of a traditional "fallen idol" Hollywood stereotype.

Note that the report only says she's "called in her lawyers", not that any paperwork has actually been filed.


We've contacted Rockstar for comment, and will update if we hear back.
