NEW YORK -- A New York state appeals court has dismissed a lawsuit bythat says the producers of “Grand Theft Auto” used a likeness of her in one of their video games.
A panel of judges in the Manhattan Appellate Division ruled Thursday that Take-Two Interactive Software Inc. didn’t use her actual “name, portrait or picture” and therefore didn’t violate her right to privacy.
Lohan accused the producers of modeling her physical features and voice in “Grand Theft Auto V.” The court says the depictions were protected as a “work of fiction and satire.”
Similar claims against Take-Two by “Mob Wives” television star Karen Gravano also were dismissed.
A message left with Lohan’s lawyer hasn’t been returned. Gravano’s lawyer says they’re exploring their options.
Lohan also made headlines Thursday with a photo she posted on Instagram apparently referencing her ex-boyfriend.
The actress shared a racy photo of herself in lingerie and captioned the snap with “Maybe I go back to blonde #noboyfriend #stillneedimsorry @terryrichardson #work.”
The former child star made headlines when paparazzi photos showed ex-fiancé Egor Tarabasov grabbing Lohan and yanking her arms behind her back on the beach in Mykonos, Greece. The couple broke up shortly thereafter.
“I realize now you can’t stay in a relationship just for love,” she told the Daily Mail in August. “No woman can be hit and stay with that person if that person isn’t prepared to say sorry.”
