Remember when Lindsay Lohan sued Pitbull? Yeah, I know, it’s been a while. But, rest assured, people: Lindsay walked away with nothing, plus the indignity of a ridiculous court case!
Lohan sued the rapper in 2011 for using her name in his hit song “Give Me Everything.” Need a memory refresher? Pitbull drops the line, “I got it locked up like Lindsay Lohan.” It’s not exactly Shakespeare, but enough to warrant a suing, I suppose.
Lohan claimed Pitbull never got permission to use her name, and has no right to profit from it. Today, a New York federal judge didn’t agree with Lilo’s sentiment. The judge sided with Pitbull, ruling that Lindsay is wrong in her allegations…the song is a work of art protected by the 1st amendment PLUS Lindsay’s barely even mentioned in it.
On the side, Lindsay said that she she suffered emotional distress due to the song, another charge that was promptly dropped.
Case closed. Pitbull 1, Lindsay Lohan 0 (though I bet he won’t use her name in another song anytime soon).
