Lindsay Lohan sues Pitbull over 'Give Me Everything' lyrics
Lindsay Lohan is suing rapper Pitbull over a line in his song Give Me Everything, claiming it's defamatory and has to go. Hey, she got a settlement out of the E*Trade commercial with the drunk baby, didn't she?
Lohan attorney Stephanie Ovadia, who won that settlement, filed a lawsuit seeking an injunction against Pitbull and songwriters Ne-Yo and Afrojack from broadcasting the song (Nayer also appears). It seems she takes exception to a line that goes, "Hustlers move aside, so I'm tiptoein', to keep flowin' / I got it locked up like Lindsay Lohan." Watch the video above (the offending lyric starts about 1:12 in).
According to TMZ, the suit claims "the lyrics, by virtue of its wide appeal, condemnation, excoriation, disparaging or defamatory statements by the defendants about the plaintiff are destined to do irreparable harm to the plaintiff." The use of her name allegedly "causes (Lindsay) to be associated and identified in connection with defendants."
See, the problem here is, LiLo has been in jail FIVE times, so we'd think you can't really defame someone for something that's demonstrably true. Only in the California justice system would this even be discussed. If Lindsay tried to sue about this in, say, Texas, they'd laugh her out of the state. Or lock her up. Again.
