Lindsay Lohan sues Grand Theft Auto V makers

Lindsay Lohan is suing the makers of the Grand Theft Auto video games.

The actress said the latest instalment used her image and created a character based on her without her permission.

Lohan's lawsuit was filed in a Manhattan court.

Grand Theft Auto V game maker Take-Two Interactive Software and subsidiary Rockstar Games declined to comment.

Grand Theft Auto V was released in September. Sales topped 800 million US dollars (£466 million) on its first day.

Lohan's suit says a character named Lacey Jonas is an "unequivocal" reference to the Mean Girls and Freaky Friday star.

The suit says Lohan's image, voice and styles from her clothing line are depicted. It says the game features West Hollywood's Chateau Marmont hotel, where Lohan once lived.
