Lindsay Lohan is suing Rockstar Games and its owner Take-Two Interactive over a character in Grand Theft Auto V that she alleges is an "unequivocal" representation of her image, according to the Associated Press. The suit was reportedly filed today in Manhattan, claiming that Lohan's voice and image are reproduced in the game, as well as styles directly from her clothing line. Take-Two did not immediately respond to a request for comment from The Verge.

The character at issue is Lacey Jonas, a vain and demanding actress trying to escape from a group of paparazzi (as seen in the video above). Strangely enough, Jonas drew Lohan's attention despite being a fairly minor character in GTA V. It's not clear if Jonas is meant to be a direct play off of Lohan or a caricature of Hollywood stars in general, but the Grand Theft Auto series has never been a stranger to parodying anything, from businesses, to television shows, to people.
