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.

    Right – because she’s so squeaky clean. Talk about frivolous.

    • ggg

      Relax. She must not be thinking clearly without her smack, crack, and pot.

      • GGgg

        I guess this is the only way she can make money now.

      How can LL sue Pitbull for telling the truth. Then she should also sue TMZ, E! and all the new stories had her as a drug taking, alcohol guzzling, manic – allegedy. .. sorry EW just covering my A$$ so she doesn’t sue me too. LL find a new way of getting your rocks off – no one wants to hear from hear and definitely you have enough time in court .

    • Linda K

      I will just call her Stupid – and that’s not lie. and she can’t sue me because it’s a proven fact.

  • MJ

    How is it defamation if it is true?

    • Angie

      My thoughts exactly! She HAS been locked up (quite a bit). If you have 5 mug shots, it isn’t defammatory if people comment on it. If mentioning someone in a song is worthy of lawsuits, then Eminem would be broke.

  • Auds

    This girl is a total fame whore who needs to keep her name in the news somehow. I wondered how long it would take for her to try to sue over that song. It’s been out for months! Why not just ignore it!? Ugh! She’s so trashy!!

  • negatory

    first of all…it’s defamation to call what those mental midgets do “songwriting”. God, those lines are awful.

    • Sue

      Well I have not heard the entire song but I read the lyrics and thought – how can the lyrics be defamatory when I don’t know what they mean – and I am guessing I’m not the only one. Maybe in the context of the entire “song” they might be clearer? Or maybe I’m just too old. (Or both?)

      • Blonde South

        The only line that actually effects Lindsay Lohan is “Got it locked up like Lindsay Lohan”. He just added the “like Lindsay Lohan” part to try to sound clever or something. I saw this coming as soon as it registered to me that he had just used Lindsay Lohan’s name in a song in an unflattering way. This girl thinks the world revolves around her and I think she still thinks she’s important or something. She should be flattered that anyone thinks she even remotely relevant enough to have her name used in a song anymore.

    • Jen

      Haha!

  • Lily

    how else is she going to get money for her drug habit?

    • googie

      Ditto!

    • Well…

      …she can always walk down to a street corner and start turning tricks, just like every other drug addict does.

  • xx100

    The only one causing Lindsay Lohan irreparable harm is Lindsay Lohan. Sounds more like she needs money. Pathetic.

    • Kinna

      So true!

  • daisyj

    Um, honey? Those aren’t the people doing you irreparable harm.

  • BW

    I don’t know if its defamation if its something thats true and just about anyone with an internet connection already knows about.

  • Erin

    Isn’t his name Pitbull, not Pitball?

    • pitball

      Thanks for thinking of me, baby.

      • Piball’s wife

        the hell is this? Who you callin baby?

      • pitball

        I love you both, for i am pitball, master of love.

  • albert

    Don’t you think she would be better served by suing her drug dealer, her enablers, her parents, and mostly herself for the “‘irreparable harm” done to her career? If anyone has defamed Lindsay Lohan, it’s Lindsay Lohan.

  • butterkup7

    Between the expensive rehab stints that didn’t work, stealing jewerly and everything else me thinks she’s out o’ the box o’ money and wants to cash in.

    She caused her own harm now she needs to shut up and own it. Oh she lost another movie today…..was that these guys fault to? Please.

  • SCBR

    Oh yes, a line in a song is really causing irreparable harm to her image.
    Can you sue someone for defamation if they’re telling the truth? She really needs to just go away.

    • Queen B

      If anything the punchlines only make light of her pretty sad situation. Oh, Lilo

  • Tara

    Did anyone ever sue Eminem? He’s offended a bunch of people, but I don’t think their law suits would ever amount to much. Freedom of speech, and all that jazz.

  • Mike

    Wait… They are doing irreparable harm to her image? Didn’t she already do that? Jeeze, take some responsibility already and stop being a lazy bum trying to milk money out of other people… clean it up and go get some work!

  • Lauren

    What ever happened to that lawsuit she had against e*trade??? Remember? Over the “milkaholic Lindsay” thing?

    • Makeith

      I believe the settled out of court. Amount was undisclosed.

      • Quirky

        Did she receive milk?

      • Shannon

        LOL Quirky
