After threatening the makers of "Grand Theft Auto V" more than six months ago, Lindsay Lohan has finally pulled the trigger and filed a lawsuit.

The feud started when the game was released and Lohan noticed a character that looked a little too much like herself. The character has red, wavy hair and is wearing a fedora and aviator sunglasses. In the game, she is seen hiding from the paparazzi and saying, "I'm really famous! I didn't do anything — this is my average commute."

According to Forbes, the lawsuit claims that, in the game, "The portraits of the Plaintiff (Lohan) incorporated her image, likeness, clothing, outfits, Plaintiff's clothing line products, ensemble in the form of hats, hair style, sunglasses, jean shorts worn by the Plaintiff that were for sale to the public at least two years."

Lindsay Lohan filed her lawsuit the same day as her 28th birthday — July 2 — and got into a very different kind of fight while out on a birthday bike ride. According to E! News, Lohan was scraped up during the ride, although it's not exactly clear how it happened. She Instagrammed a photo of the giant scratch on her leg, along with the caption, "A citibike gone wrong #notsoquiche !!!!"

Despite her lawsuit, Lohan may be looking to restart her career soon, and she looks to be heading to the London stage. She told a magazine that she is in talks to join Speed-the-Plow on London's West End.

"It's the first time I've done a stage play or anything like that. I'm nervous but I'm excited," she said. "I'm going back to my West End world. I'm a little overwhelmed. I haven't done this — I haven't really done the shows — in the last few years."
