Lindsay Lohan’s Pitbull Lawsuit Dismissed

For the first and presumably final time, the rapper and Walmart pitchman known as Pitbull has struck a blow for free speech — and he did it by vanquishing Lindsay Lohan in a court of law.

Their dispute stemmed from ‘Give Me Everything,’ the song Pitbull recorded with Ne-Yo and Afrojack which contained the line “I’ve got it locked up like Lindsay Lohan.” Unamused, Lohan sued Pitbull — along with Afrojack, Ne-Yo, and three record companies — roughly a year and a half ago, claiming that she deserved a chunk of the profits from the track, and while we can certainly understand wanting to own a piece of an octuple-platinum single, the judge disagreed.

As anyone familiar with the United States Constitution might have already guessed, Lohan’s folly boiled down to the First Amendment, which ensures freedom of speech. Adding insult to injury, a member of Lohan’s legal team was also fined $1,500 as a penalty for plagiarizing portions of her case, which is simultaneously one of the most bizarre things we’ve ever heard and absolutely fitting for a lawsuit between Pitbull and Lindsay Lohan.

“This will further solidify the rights of artists to express themselves in song,” Pitbull’s attorney told E! News after the verdict was handed down. “He felt it was very important to address this head on to protect his right and the rights of other artists. He decided to fight this.”
