Pitbull Sued by Lindsay Lohan for Disparaging Her Name on "Give Me Everything"
Now that she's all grown up and unemployed, former teen movie star and fake blonde Lindsay Lohan has been desperately scrambling to find a reliable revenue stream. (You know, so she can continue to support her nasty peroxide habit.) And apparently, after a whole lotta scheming with a top-notch legal team, she's figured out the following signature scam: Sue everybody who says remotely nasty stuff about her.
In March 2010, LaLohan and her attorney Stephanie Ovadia filed a suit against E*Trade for its Super Bowl ad starring a bitchy, boyfriend-stealing, "milk-aholic" baby named Lindsay. Six months later, the suit was settled for an undisclosed sum. Ka-ching!
And now, as reported by TMZ, Lindsay and Stephanie are back for the sequel, attempting to score a payday from Miami's own Pitbull for a few "disparaging" and "defamatory" lyrics from his song "Give Me Everything."
The hurtful words? "Hustlers move aside, so I'm tiptoein', to keep flowin'/I got it locked up like Lindsay Lohan."
Mr. Worldwide's collaborators on the track -- Ne-Yo and Afrojack -- are also named in the lawsuit, which claims "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 suit also states that Lindsay is "a professional actor of good repute and standing in the Screen Actors Guild," who is simply "suing under the New York civil rights laws, which protects people from having their name exploited for commercial purposes."
What's she asking? Just that "Give Me Everything" never be broadcast again. Oh, and "unspecified damages."
Can you say ... Ka-ching!
