NEW YORK, Aug. 20 (UPI) -- Actress Lindsay Lohan is suing rappers Pitbull, Ne-Yo and Afrojack for mentioning her in their song "Give Me Everything," New York court records show.

The line goes: "Hustlers move aside, so I'm tiptoein', to keep flowin'; I got it locked up like Lindsay Lohan."

TMZ quoted Lohan as saying in her lawsuit she is taking action against the hip-hop artists because they exploited her name for commercial purposes.

"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," the Web site reported the lawsuit said.

TMZ said Lohan seeks unspecified damages and an injunction to stop the defendants from broadcasting the song.

Lohan previously sued E*TRADE for mocking her in an ad; that matter was settled for an undisclosed sum.
