“GTA V,” which became the fastest-selling video game in history upon its September 2013 release, is part of a series well known for its satire of certain North American lifestyles. The Lacey Jonas character, a blonde romcom actress and socialite with paparazzi issues, formed a key part of early publicity material issued by developer Rockstar Games and publisher Take Two Interactive. Lohan’s distress at the portrayal has now extended to legal proceedings filed in New York on July 2, with part of the filing linking Lohan, who used to stay at the Chateau Marmont Hotel in West Hollywood, to the game’s own lavish recreation in Gentry Manor Hotel, where Lacey Jonas lives.
