Rap beef! Lindsay Lohan sues Pitbull, Ne-Yo, and Afrojack for 'irreparable harm'
The lady just can’t stay out of court. According to TMZ, Lindsay Lohan has sued the rapper Pitbull and his co-songwriters Ne-Yo and Afrojack over this line from his hit single “Give Me Everything”: “Hustlers move aside, so I’m tiptoein’, to keep flowin’ / I got it locked up like Lindsay Lohan.”
The lawsuit, which was filed by Lohan’s lawyer Stephanie Ovadia, seeks an injunction to stop the broadcast of the song, along with unspecified damages.
Lohan claims that “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.” She’s suing under New York’s civil rights laws, which protect people from having their name exploited for commercial purposes.
Why stop there? Didn’t Hilary Duff also write a song about Lohan? And didn’t Tori Amos also do that? And that British pop band McFly, too? At this rate, she’ll spend the rest of the aughties in judges’ chambers–but at least she’ll have a pretty hot mixtape.
