The suit claims that Rockstar had taken Lohan's likeness, voice and style. It goes on to mention that the character had been modelled on a time when Lohan was living in celebrity haunt the Chateau Marmont with 'Jonas' living in a hotel in the game.

The game publisher has dismissed the claims calling them frivolous and 'filed for publicity purposes’. There aren't too many more details, but the original story was reported by AP and can be read here.
