Lindsay Lohan is allegedly set to take action against Grand Theft Auto V after she claimed the creators of the video game used her image without her permission.
The actress’ lawyers are apparently in the process of drafting a lawsuit, demanding that Rockstar Games pay her for creating a character in her likeness, TMZ reports.
On the cover of the game, a red-haired woman baring a marked resemblance to the star can be seen holding a cellphone as she poses in a bikini.
Part of the game features a mission during which the player is tasked with guiding the Lohan-a-like home and escaping the paparazzi.
There is also a mission to photograph the character performing a sexual act on camera in a hotel that resembles famed celebrity haunt the Chateau Marmont hotel in West Hollywood.
However, there has already been some debate over just how much the character really does look like Lohan, with some arguing that the image resembles model Kate Upton or Shelby Welinder.
Rockstar Games and Lindsay Lohan are yet to comment on the reports.
