Lindsay Lohan Sues Video Game Maker Because She's Lindsay Lohan

Lindsay LohanNeed further evidence that Lindsay Lohan is a tad bit delusional? Here it is! The fallen from grace child star has apparently carried through on threats to sue Grand Theft Auto V makers Rockstar Games, alleging the company used her likeness in their popular video game without her permission (or, you know, paying her oodles of cash).

Of course you can't just go around borrowing someone's image and making money off of them. But before you go all Team LiLo, let's take a look at the Mean Girls star's evidence that character Lacey Jonas is really Lindsay Lohan.

According to Forbes:

The portraits of the Plaintiff [Lohan] incorporated her image, likeness, clothing, outfits, Plaintiff’s clothing line products, ensemble in the form of hats, hair style, sunglasses, jean shorts worn by the Plaintiff that were for sale to the public at least two years.

Wait, so wearing hats, sunglasses, and jean shorts makes you Lindsay Lohan? Whatever you do, do not hit a beach in America this summer ... you'll be inundated with LiLos! 

Granted, "Lacey" also hides from paparazzi in the game and talks up her fame when someone dares not know who she is.

Which sounds like ... every celebrity who ever existed, including Lindsay.

So is it her? And can Rockstar Games claim this is simple parody -- protected under the law? That's up to a judge.

But it doesn't stop the rest of us from rolling our eyes.

Do you feel like Lindsay deserves some cash here or is this a publicity stunt?
