Lohan’s attorneys have filed on Wednesday under a Manhattan court which claims the character, Lacey Jonas, is an unequivocal reference to Lohan. “Lohan’s image, voice and styles from her clothing line are depicted. Also, the game features a depiction of West Hollywood’s Chateau Marmont Hotel, where Lohan once lived.” The suit was filed in New York City, the hometown of Rockstar.
