Pitbull Countersues Lindsay Lohan Over 'Give Me Everything'

11/8/2011 3:27pm EST
Rapper Pitbull is countersuing Lindsay Lohan over a defamation lawsuit she filed against him, insisting his reference to her legal problems in the lyrics of hit single Give Me Everything is justified considering her recent multiple jail stints.

In the suit, filed in August, the Mean Girls star accused Pitbull of exploiting her name in the tune, in which he rhymes, "Hustlers move aside, so I'm tiptoeing, keep flowin'/I got it locked up like Lindsay Lohan."

The actress took offense to the lyrics, claiming they were defamatory and destined to cause irreparable harm, and she filed legal doc...

Pitbull Settles Paternity Lawsuit

9/12/2011 8:35am EDT
Rapper Pitbull has settled a paternity lawsuit with his former girlfriend.

The hip-hop star has been paying monthly $3,000 child support payments for his nine-year-old daughter with ex-partner Barbara Alba.

However, Alba claimed the cash wasn't enough because she wanted to live in a gated community after her Miami, Florida home was targeted by burglars.

Alba launched a lawsuit against Pitbull, real name Armando Perez, but the pair has now reached an agreement out of court.

Her attorney Jason Setchen tells The Miami Herald, "Pitbull is a gentleman. This was resolved amicably."

Lindsay Lohan Doesn't Join Pitbull At VMAs

Lindsay Lohan
Lindsay Lohan snubbed rapper Pitbull's invite to join him at the MTV Video Music Awards.

The actress issued legal proceedings against the hitmaker after claiming he defamed her in the lyrics of his number one hit "Give Me Everything," prompting Pitbull to insist he never meant to hurt the star in a video posted on his website.

And to prove he wasn't out to poke fun at Lohan, he invited her to attend the VMAs with him. But it was clear she wasn't going to take him up on his offer, and he instead showed up to the event on Sunday with actress Natalie Martinez.

Asked if he was bothered b...

Pitbull Apologizes To Lindsay Lohan, Invites Her To MTV VMAs

8/25/2011 9:24pm EDT

The Mean Girls star slapped Pitbull with a lawsuit last week for exploiting her name in the tune, a former U.S. number one.

In the song, co-written by Ne-Yo, the hip-hop star rhymes, "Hustlers move aside, so I'm tiptoeing, keep flowin'/I got it locked up like Lindsay Lohan" - lyrics which Lohan claims are defamatory and destined to cause irreparable harm.

The actress is currently seeking an injunction to stop the broa...

Lindsay Lohan
Lindsay Lohan had a few uncomfortable moments at pal Kim Kardashian's wedding reception on Saturday night when the event band played a cover of Pitbull's hit "Give Me Everything" - just days after the actress filed suit against the rapper for poking fun at her in the lyrics.

Lohan sat chatting with her mother and other guests as the former number one record played, according to Life & Style magazine.

Last week Lohan took offense to the line, "Hustlers move aside, so I'm tiptoeing, keep flowin'/I got it locked up like Lindsay Lohan," and accused Pitbull of making "disparaging or defamatory...

Lindsay Lohan has slapped rapper Pitbull with a lawsuit for poking fun at her in the lyrics of his hit single Give Me Everything.

In the song, co-written by Ne-Yo, the hip-hop star rhymes, "Hustlers move aside, so I'm tiptoeing, keep flowin'/I got it locked up like Lindsay Lohan" - and the actress is far from happy that her name features in the song.

A new lawsuit filed on Lohan's behalf reads, "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 plainti...

Pitbull Releases Video For 'The Anthem,' Featuring Lil' Jon

4/17/2008 7:00am EDT
