Court Rules Grand Theft Auto V Character Doesn't Resemble Lindsay Lohan

The media and her fans are also extremely obsessed about her, with Lacey claiming that one photo of her can reach a six-figure price and that the autobiography of her gynecologist was the best selling fiction and non-fiction book of 2010.

It is unclear if Lohan will continue to pursue the case, but given her lawyers' seemingly undying dedication to this cause, we'll likely hear about it again soon enough. Lohan said that the game's widely distributed promotional, box and disc art (one sample is above) was such a portrait, used without her written consent.

Lacey Jonas is a one-off character appearing in a random event called "Escape Paparazzi" in Grand Theft Auto 5.

The suit was dismissed in 2016 when an appeals court in Manhattan explained that the game's "unique story, characters, dialogue, and environment, combined with the player's ability to choose how to proceed in the game, render it a work of fiction and satire".

By a 6-0 vote today, March 29, the Court of Appeals ruled the depiction was "nothing more than cultural comment", according to Reuters.




But on Thursday, New York's top court ruled that the characters didn't actually look like her.

This was the other character Lohan was upset with. Not only did Lohan's 2013 defamation lawsuit fail, her lawyers were caught plagiarizing. Lohan claimed he defamed her by rapping "So, I'm tip-toein', to keep flowin', I got it locked up, like Lindsay Lohan".

British-American model and journalist Shelby Welinder came forward before the ruling revealing that she was the person used for the bikini woman and even had a payslip from Rockstar Games to prove they employed her.

Despite the dismissal of Lohan's appeal, the case may have some lasting ramifications.

In a separate order, the court dismissed similar claims against Take-Two by Karen Gravano, a star of the reality TV series "Mob Wives", over another character.
