Lindsay Lohan has sued rapper Pitbull, and his co-songwriters Afrojack and Ne-Yo, under New York civil rights laws. Lyrics in Pitbull’s hit single, “Give Me Everything,” include Lindsay Lohan’s name and her lawyer is seeking an injunction. She wants unspecified damages and to stop the defendants from broadcasting the song.
Ne-Yo and Afrojack wrote a line in “Give Me Everything,” stating, “Hustlers move aside, so I’m tiptoein’, to keep flowin’ I got it locked up like Lindsay Lohan.” New York native Lindsay Lohan wasn’t happy and her lawyer, Stephanie Ovadia, filed a lawsuit.
According to TMZ, the lawsuit describes Lohan as a “professional actor of good repute and standing in the Screen Actors Guild.” She is “suing under New York civil rights laws, which protects people from having their name exploited for commercial purposes.” The suit also alleges her name in the song causes Lohan to be associated in connection with the defendants.
The lawsuit also stated 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.”
Lindsay Lohan is apparently trying to protect her reputation and get her life together. Last week, Lohan visited NYC for business and to visit with family. She unwound at a spa, leaving behind a sticky incident in Venice Beach, California.
A website posted video of Lohan with several men exchanging cash and a plastic bag. Lohan’s publicist, Steve Honig, disputed with the online editor and said, “If they had taken the time to look into this a little bit further, they would have found that the bag contained crystals from a local shop in Venice.”
Pitbull’s first hit single to top the Billboard Hot 100 is “Give Me Everything,” which is now the subject of this lawsuit. Formally known as Armando Christian Perez, Pitbull recently collaborated with Jennifer Lopez on her single, “On the Floor.”
According to the Hollywood Gossip, “Give Me Everything,” isn’t the only song mentioning Lindsay Lohan. A few years ago, the British band McFly released, “Please, Please, Lindsay, Please!” Lohan allegedly had a dalliance with drummer Harry Judd.
The song’s lyrics included the words, “I wanna put my hands on your skin. Underneath the clothes that you’re in. I wanna get with you…You love yourself more than you love me.” Unlike “Give Me Everything,” this song did not reach top popularity in the United States.
