GTA Makers Accuse Lohan Of Attention-Seeking

The creators of the Grand Theft Auto games have accused Lindsay Lohan of suing them just to get attention.

The actress has claimed the games' latest installment features a character based on her.

But in court papers filed in New York, Take-Two Interactive Software Inc and subsidiary Rockstar Games called the case frivolous.

They said the case had been filed by Lohan for "publicity purposes" and want it dismissed and for the Mean Girls star to pay their legal fees.

Lohan, who is currently rehearsing for the West End show Speed-The-Plow, sued over Grand Theft Auto V in July.

Her suit says the game uses her image, voice and style and evokes her via a character named Lacey Jonas.

Take-Two says her voice, name and likeness aren't used, and the character resembles her only in being a young, blonde woman.

Lohan's lawyer has not responded to a request for a comment.
