Lindsay Lohan is suing over 'Grand Theft Auto V'

Is Lacey Jonas really Lindsay Lohan?

Lindsay Lohan is suing Rockstar Games, developer of the insanely popular Grand Theft Auto series, for allegedly using her image in Grand Theft Auto V without permission.

TMZ points out several parts of the game where Lohan could claim she appears, starting with the cover. The bikini model on GTA’s box and advertisements has been compared to everyone from actress Yvonne Strahovski to YouTube star Justine Ezarik to the one and only Kate Upton. 

Could Lindsay really be the inspiration for the famous bikini babe?

Probably not. It’s already been confirmed that the image is based on model Shelby Welinder. Welinder even produced a copy of her invoice from Rockstar to prove it.

But a couple of characters in the game itself are significantly more Lohan-esque. One is Lacey Jonas, a vain celebrity who needs help escaping the paparazzi. The other lives in a building that TMZ claims resembles Hollywood’s famous Château Marmont, where Lohan often stays. The player’s mission? To tape her having sex. 

TMZ has posted gameplay footage from the Lacey Jonas mission. Is she Lindsay? Decide for yourself.

However this turns out, Lohan is certainly going after some deep pockets. GTA V holds the Guinness World Record for fastest entertainment property to gross $1 billion.

That's not Kate Upton in the 'Grand Theft Auto V' ads—it's this model
The woman who appears in every Grand Theft Auto V advertisement has gone by many names—the beach girl, bikini girl, and blonde girl. Gamers have casually compared her likeness to YouTube star Justine Ezarik (a.k.a. iJustine), actress Yvonne Strahovski, and model Candice Swanepoel.
