Lindsay Lohan has stepped up her lawsuit against Grand Theft Auto V developer Rockstar over the use of a character alleged to be based on her.

The Hollywood actress originally began legal proceedings back in July, when she claimed that GTA5’s fictional Vinewood actress Lacey Jones was an “unequivocal” reference to her.

Lohan claims that Rockstar copied her image, voice and clothing style for the character, something which the developer laughed off as a bid for attention.

“Her claim is so legally meritless that it lacks any good-faith basis and can only have been filed for publicity purposes,” Rockstar hit back.

The developer has asked for the case to be dismissed and for Lohan to pay its legal fees, but Lohan’s lawyers this week submitted new documentation to further the case.
