Lindsay Lohan Sues Pitbull & Ne-Yo --- Threatens To Take Their Song Off Radio!


Guess Lindsay doesn't like Pitbull and Neyo's song "Give Me Everything" as much as we do.

Lindsay Lohan is reportedly suing the creators of Pitbull's No. 1 hit "Give Me Everything" over a disparaging lyric that she claims is in breach of "New York civil rights laws."

The song -- written by Ne-Yo and Afrojack, also defendants -- has a line:

Hustlers move aside, so I'm tiptoein', to keep flowin'
I got it locked up like Lindsay Lohan.

Lindsay is pissed, claiming in her lawsuit ...
"the lyrics, by virtue of its wide appeal, condemnation, excoriation, disparaging or defamatory statements by the defendants about the plaintiff are destined to do irreparable harm to the plaintiff."

Lindsay, who claims in the lawsuit she is
"a professional actor of good repute and standing in the Screen Actors Guild, is suing under the New York civil rights laws, which protects people from having their name exploited for commercial purposes.

Lindsay alleges the appearance of her name in the song "causes [Lindsay] to be associated and identified in connection with defendants."

The suit -- filed by Stephanie Ovadia -- seeks an injunction to stop all of the defendants from broadcasting the song. It also seeks unspecified damages. Stephanie Ovadia is the same lawyer who filed the E*TRADE lawsuit on Lindsay's behalf, which settled for a confidential sum.

"Give Me Everything" has given Pitbull (real name: Armando Christian Perez) his biggest hit yet, reaching No. 1 on the Hot 100 in June and selling 2.96 million copies since its release, according to Nielsen SoundScan. Representatives for Pitbull and Ne-Yo did not respond to queries about the lawsuit at press time.
