Pitbull Responds to Lindsay Lohan Lawsuit

Pitbull doesn’t think Lindsay Lohan has good reason to sue him for his line about her in the hit song “Give Me Everything.”

Pit filed legal documents in New York this week, responding to the suit Lohan originally filed in August 2011 against Pitbull and songwriters Ne-Yo and Afrojack for namedropping her on the line, “Hustlers move aside, so I’m tiptoein’, to keep flowin’ / I got it locked up like Lindsay Lohan.” In it, Pitbull claimed that if Ryan Seacrest, who is also mentioned in the song, didn’t sue him, neither should Lilo.

In fact, not only did Ryan not sue, he summoned Pit to perform the song as part of a New Year’s Eve show that Seacrest himself hosted. Pitbull also cited the First Amendment, which promotes Freedom of Speech.

Lindsay is suing Pitbull under the New York civil rights laws, which protects people from having their name exploited for commercial purposes. In the lawsuit, she claims “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.”

Lindsay also alleges she is “a professional actor of good repute and standing in the Screen Actors Guild,” and that the appearance of her name in the song “causes [Lindsay] to be associated and identified in connection with defendants.”

The suit, filed by Stephanie Ovadia, seeks an injunction to stop all of the defendants from broadcasting the song.  It also seeks unspecified damages, but a judge has yet to rule. —Gina Montana

      theres a reason why pitbull droped that locked up line,cuz the bitch stays getting locked up and she stays on drugs like DMX.
      but the diffrence is that she was a disney actress,

      Lindsay also alleges she is “a professional actor of good repute”


      who the fuck lindsay think she fooling with that bullshit statement? a former disney star getting caught with coke
      multiple arrest in a short span of weeks,one for shop lifting,fucking niggaz inside clubs,this the same bitch that wanted to fuck prodigy. i think thats hardly good repute,especially when she when to rehab a bunch of times only so the bitch with a good “repute” could relapse. she fucked up her own image a long ass time ago. this is just a case of a rapper mentioning her name and she wants some money outta of it,cuz she knows rap got a bad reputation so she think she could get some Gwap from the sympathetic white judge. PERIOD dumb bitch..
