Pitbull Beats Lindsay Lohan In Court Over “Give Me Everything” Lawsuit

Truth rating: 10

Pitbull defeated Lindsay Lohan in court on Thursday when a judge ruled against the lawsuit she filed in 2011 that claimed the rapper’s lyrics exploited her.

The actress had sued the hip-hop star over his song “Give Me Everything,” which includes the line: “So, I’m tiptoein,’ to keep flowin’ / I got it locked up, like Lindsay Lohan.”

Lohan argued that the track violated civil rights laws that offer protection against having one’s name used without permission for commercial purposes.

But U.S. District Judge Denis Hurley struck down Lohan’s case, ruling that Pitbull’s song is protected by the First Amendment as a work of art.

Hurley added that the “isolated nature of the use of her name” — in just one lyric — seriously weakened Lohan’s claims.

Meanwhile, the judge ruled that Lohan’s attorney, Stephanie Ovadia, had plagiarized in her court briefs, constituting “undisputedly false representation to the Court.”

Ovadia was sanctioned.

A small consolation for Lohan: Hurley disagreed with Pitbull’s legal team’s request that the actress herself be sanctioned for a “frivolous” lawsuit.
