Earlier this week we told you about the rather bizarre claims made by Lindsay Lohan that suggested that Rockstar had used her likeness in GTA V without permission. That claim has now been proved to be completely false, but not before social media had the chance to poke a little fun in the process.
The image you see here is not Lindsay Lohan, nor is it Kate Upton which some other gamers believed. Instead it is none other than Shelby Welinder – a model who was hired by Rockstar for the game.

You’ll be able to see a comparison shot of Welinder posing next to the famous GTA V advertisement below – this image was posted by Welinder herself via her Instagram account.
Next, upon hearing news about Lindsay Lohan’s potential lawsuit against Rockstar for the likeness, here is what she has quoted from one fan’s perspective of the issue.
"Just because the game has illegal drugs and all the worst west coast stereotypes does not mean you're in it @lindsaylohan." Best so far!

It’s safe to say that there’s no chance of Rockstar being taken to court over this and it is rather amusing to think that they ever would. It looks more like Kate Upton if anything anyway!
