Lindsay Lohan Sues Rapper Over Hit Song’s Lyrics

Aug 19, 2011  •  Post A Comment

Lindsay Lohan has filed a lawsuit against a popular rapper, claiming a reference to the actress in a hit song has caused her “irreparable harm,” TMZ.com reports.

The line in Pitbull’s “Give Me Everything” is: “Hustlers move aside, so I’m tiptoein’, to keep flowin’ / I got it locked up like Lindsay Lohan.”

The lawsuit, filed by attorney Stephanie Ovadia on behalf of Lohan, says: "The lyrics, by virtue of its wide appeal, condemnation, excoriation, disparaging or defamatory statements by the defendants about the plaintiff are destined to do irreparable harm to the plaintiff."

The song is written by Ne-Yo and Afrojack, who are named in the suit along with Pitbull.

The story adds: “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.”

The suit seeks unspecified damages along with an injuntion to halt broadcasts of the song.

  1. Come on! this is why no one respects the girl. How petty. And by doing this is guaranteeing the song gets more distribution.

  2. “Lindsay, who claims in the lawsuit she is a professional actor of good repute” … The suit should be thrown out based on that delusion alone. In whose world is Lohan an actor with a good reputation?!

  3. As a public figure, she is subject to fair comment.

  4. The truth is a very good defense in this case. If Lohan wants to claim that irreparable harm was done, the defense only needs to prove that the harm was done by the plaintiff, exhibiting that the subject of contention is not only well known but well documented by the court. Case closed.

  5. I am still trying to figure out what the lyrics actually mean!
