Grand Theft Auto V, Lindsay Lohan

Rockstar Games

Lindsay Lohan's 28-year-old self is no happier with the makers of GTA 5 than her 27-year-old self was.

After reportedly gearing up to do so in December, Lohan pulled the trigger today on a lawsuit against Rockstar Games and Take-Two Interactive, alleging that the character of Lacey Jonas in the best-selling video game Grand Theft Auto V is an "unquivocal" reference to the actress.

Lohan, who turned 28 today (happy birthday, girl!) was spotted out and about in Manhattan, which is where the suit was filed in state Supreme Court on her behalf.

In GTA V, Lacey has flowing, amber-colored wavy hair and theoretically could bear a resemblance to Lohan with her fedora and aviator shades. In one scene, she is seen trying to duck paparazzi by hiding behind a car, and she tells the main character, "I'm really famous! I didn't do anything—this is my average commute."

"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," the lawsuit charges, according to Forbes.

Take-Two, the game's distributor, and publisher/developer Rock Star Games have not commented on the suit.

Meanwhile, though Lohan was spotted walking earlier, she apparently got into a literal scrape while taking a birthday bike ride later on. (Better than the kind of scrapes the GTA 5 motorists get up to, right?)

"A citibike gone wrong #notsoquiche !!!!" she Instagrammed a pic of her thigh marred by an angry pink scratch.

The upcoming star of the London stage also treated herself to a manicure, sharing a photo of her buffed 'n' polished finger nails.

"Happy birthday to my nail beds #meangirls - thanks to @pattieyankee they don't suck!!" she gave a shout-out to the celebrity nail artist, who also wrote on Instagram about spending the day with LiLo.

"#Repost from @lindsaylohan," Pattie gushed. "Spent the day with her today for her birthday! I've missed this sweet girl so much & love her so much! Going to miss you when you're in London...:(#naildate #birthdaygirl #loveher #lovemyjob#blessed #destiny #notd #sweetheart#naturalnails #gelpolish @orlynails #firstkiss#natural #nude #patriciayankee."
