New York - Lindsay Lohan is suing the makers of the Grand Theft Auto video games. The actress says the latest installment used her image and created a character based on her without her permission.

Lohan's lawsuit was filed on Wednesday in a Manhattan court. Grand Theft Auto V game maker Take-Two Interactive Software Inc and subsidiary Rockstar Games declined to comment.

Grand Theft Auto V was released in September. Sales topped $800m on its first day.

Lohan's lawsuit says a character named Lacey Jonas is an "unequivocal" reference to the Mean Girls and Freaky Friday star.
