Madonna, Oprah, Cher and Lindsay…evidently

Lindsay Lohan is suing E-Trade for using her name and likeness in one of those creepy baby-talking commercials, even though the milk-a-holic “whore-baby” (credit to Dealbreaker) is only identified as Lindsay in the commercial. 

 

Lohan’s attorney, Stephanie Ovadia, claims that Lohan has the same single-name recognition as Madonna or Oprah.  Ovadia stated, “Many celebrities are known by one name only, and E-Trade is using that knowledge to profit.” 

 

Lohan is suing for $50 million in exemplary damages and $50 million in compensatory damages.

I'm guessing she has to have some form of revenue and since the acting gig has dried up she's resorted to this. Pretty sad.

When I first heard about this I thought it was a really bad joke, then I realized it wasn't.  Lindsay needs to get a life.  I've seen that commericail many times and not once did I think of Lindsay Lohan.  I hope she is able to get her stuff together soon so she can stop wasting our time with this nonsense.
