Lindsay Lohan is allegedly planning to sue the makers of 'Grand Theft Auto V'.
The 27-year-old actress has reportedly instructed her lawyers to start drawing up a lawsuit against video game producers, Rockstar Games, as she claims they created a character that looks and acts like her without her permission.
The video game cover features a blonde woman holding a phone, who is later chased by paparazzi, and Lindsay claims she was the inspiration.
Another sequence sees the character in a building that is believed to represent the Chateau Marmont Hotel in Los Angeles, where Lindsay once lived and often partied at in the past.
Lindsay's legal representatives reportedly believe she could be awarded a large amount of compensation from the manufacturer, according to gossip website TMZ.com.
It was previously reported that the character was based on model Shelby Welinder, who previously told Nowgamer that she was hired by the video game producer through her agency to model for the advertisement last year.
Earlier this year, the 'Mean Girls' star lost her legal battle against Pitbull.
The actress sued the Cuban/American hitmaker in 2011 for a line in his song 'Give Me Everything' - in which he joked he was ''locked up like Lindsay Lohan'' - claiming he had no right to use her name and sought financial compensation, but a court ruled in his favour in February.
