Lindsay Lohan is reportedly suing the financial company E-Trade, insisting that the company's new commercial about a boyfriend-stealing, "milkaholic" baby -- who happens to be named Lindsay -- was modeled after her. Lohan reportedly wants $100 million, The NY Post reports. Lohan's lawyer, Stephanie Ovadia, told the newspaper that the actress has the same single-name recognition as Oprah or Madonna. "Many celebrities are known by one name only, and E-Trade is using that knowledge to profit," Ovadia said.

The actress filed a lawsuit yesterday in Nassau County Supreme Court over the commercial, which debuted during the Super Bowl this year. PopEater reached out to E-Trade,

Reached for comment, E-Trade tells PopEater they are refraining from commenting until they can review Lohan's complaint.

In the ad, a baby boy apologizes to his girlfriend via video chat for not calling her the night before. The suspicious girlfriend asks, "And that milkaholic Lindsay wasn't over?"

"Lindsay?" the boy replies, just before a baby girl sticks her head into the frame and slurs, "Milk-a-what?" Watch:

"They used the name Lindsay," Ovadia said. "They're using her name as a parody of her life. Why didn't they use the name Susan? This is a subliminal message. Everybody's talking about it and saying it's Lindsay Lohan."

According to the NY Post, Ovadia said, "E-Trade has violated Lohan's rights under New York state civil-rights law and used her 'name and characterization' in business without paying her or getting her approval."

Ovadia wants to force the spot off the air, claiming Lohan is owed $50 million in exemplary damages and another $50 million in compensatory damages.

Naw, they will take this far more seriously than it deserves. Remember, they took the guys suing for 50 million for one lost pair of pants seriously.....

Seriously though, lohan is known for her being a drunk far more than any good reputation she might have for acting. Her claim to fame is the riduculous antics from her and her highly disfunctional family.

If letterman and leno can parody her and anyone they want without this fear, why should a company putting a commercial parody together be any different.

100 million!! just shows you how out to lunch these people are, I wouldn't hire her for a $30,000 a year salary because she just doesn't have any usefull skills.

She can't get a job so she has to figure out one way to pay for her habits.

have you seen the ad??? C'mon...a parody of her??? The freakin' girl in the video is like 10 months old.
See, it's stuff like this......when they throw it out of court, she should be penalized (not PENILised - she gets enough of that I'm sure) severely. I also think her lawyer ought to be brought in front of the board. Somebody has to put a stop to this crap.

Yes, there is a point to be made there about putting a stop to it, but how? If you penilise people for making accusations then you will scare them into silence, which is all the better for the criminal. Imagaine that if you got raped, and told someone, there is a chance you will get in trouble yourself unless you have unrefutable proof.

now, 10 months old doesn't mean it's not her, it just a parody of her and making her a "Milkoholic" at 10 months is actually funny and pretty much verify's they are making fun of her. But who cares, I say let them do it.

You do need a celebrity ego law though. When they go after someone making a tiny bit of profit by sueing for 100 million, they should be fined that much if they lose the case. 100 million is not a reasonable amount and she was damaged in no way compaired to what her own actions did to her reputation.

"Milk-a-whaaaa?" LOL

Yup, I use etrade and proud of it, I think this is going to actually be good publicity for them!

Which is worse, ignorance or apathy? I don't know and I don't care!

LOL this is funny, I saw that commercial on TV but didn't get the connection, but I can see why she is mad,,

if people are talking about or making funny of her on Talk Shows or asking her about it I think she has a case here, you can't slander or mock the rich on TV, they will get you for it, if it goes to a Jury she will probably loose, but if it goes to a judge she just may win, although she probably wont get 100 Mill, maybe 20 or so, or her usual rate she gets for a movie plus some for damages,,

boy the show this is going to be LOL

true, and it may be well worth it to ETrade to settle 50 Mill, they must make that every couple hours

compensate her for her average beejay fee....
Reminds of a guy here locally that built a small 2 story office building and named it The Trump Building. Yep, you guessed it. He got sued by Donald Trump. Had to rename the building and if I'm not mistaken, the legal fees ended up bankrupting him.
HERE'S the kicker. HIS last name is Trump.

Lindsay Lohan is a half-baked, empty-headed twinkie. Her suit will get tossed out pronto or she'll lose after a short, pointless and wasteful trial. Either way she'll end up paying court costs. What a hump.

remember here fellas that lohan probably has little to do with this, just some slimy lawyer. She may not even know this issue exists. Not really a fan but we're attaching her when she may have nothing to do with it, its just attached to her name.

They could have used "firecrotch" instead of "milkaholic"

By what standard? Looks? Okay, can't argue with that. Neck down she's hot.

Bank balance? I'd rather be smart, ugly and poor than stupid, cute and rich.
