But while that was all the work of fiction, Lindsay Lohan thought Rockstar Games used her as inspiration for Lacey as well as the two loading screens of the bikini clad woman (which a lot of people thought looked more like Kate Upton) and woman bent over a vehicle being arrested.
"We conclude a computer generated image may constitute a portrait within the meaning of that law", the verdict reads. Lohan tried to sue Take-Two Interactive because she felt the minor character Lacey Jones looked like her, sounded like her, and dressed like her, and this somehow invaded her privacy. However the court concluded that video game characters that the actress said were based on her did not resemble her.
Ever since Grand Theft Auto was released, it has always featured suggestive cartoon women in their promotional packs and loading scenes. Take-Two initially responded in 2014 by calling her filing a "publicity stunt".
Despite the dismissal of Lohan's appeal, the case may have some lasting ramifications.
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.
But the state Court of Appeals ruled that the satirical representations of "a modern, beach-going" young woman were not identifiable as Lohan.
The court also dismissed a similar claim against Take-Two by Karen Gravano, a cast member in the reality TV series Mob Wives, regarding another character in GTA V. But it likely ends Lohan's suit against Take-Two. According to Judge Eugene Fahey, Jones is "nothing more than cultural comment" and a depiction of a generic "twenty something".
