Lindsay Lohan Suing Pitbull Over Lyric
Lindsay Lohan has just sued the rapper Pitbull for a line in his mega-hit, "Give Me Everything," for a disparaging lyric about her.
The song -- written by Ne-Yo and Afrojack, also defendants -- has a line:
Hustlers move aside, so I'm tiptoein, keep flowin'
I got it locked up like Lindsay Lohan.
Lindsay claims in her lawsuit ... "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 lawsuit also states she is "a professional actor of good repute and standing in the Screen Actors Guild, is suing under the New York civil rights laws, which protects people from having their name exploited for commercial purposes.
The suit -- filed by Stephanie Ovadia -- seeks an injunction to stop all of the defendants from broadcasting the song. It also seeks unspecified damages.
