Video game makers: Lohan sued us 'for publicity'

Created: 08/26/2014 7:11 PM WHEC.com

The makes of the "Grand Theft Auto" video games say Lindsay Lohan sued to get attention when she asserted that the games' latest installment features a character based on her.
 
In Manhattan court papers made public Tuesday, Take-Two Interactive Software Inc. and subsidiary Rockstar Games call the case frivolous and maintain it was "filed for publicity purposes." They want it dismissed and want the "Mean Girls" star to pay their legal fees.
 
Lohan's lawyer hasn't immediately returned a call.
 
Lohan sued in July over "Grand Theft Auto V." Her suit says the game uses her image, voice and styles and evokes her via a character named Lacey Jonas.
 
Take-Two says her voice, name and likeness aren't used, and the character resembles her only in being a young, blonde woman.
