(Newser) – Lindsay Lohan is apparently famous enough to be known by her first name alone…and she wants $100 million from E*Trade, which dared to use that name without her permission. The “milkaholic” baby featured in the above ad was named after “someone on the account team,” a rep insists, but LiLo’s lawyer pooh-poohs that idea: They’re using Lindsay’s name “as a parody of her life. This is a subliminal message,” she tells the New York Post.

“Everybody's talking about it and saying it's Lindsay Lohan,” the lawyer continues, although Gawker writer Maureen O'Connor notes, “Though it is my job to read and spread gossip, this is the first I've heard about the above party baby secretly representing the girl occasionally known as Blowhan.” Lohan filed a lawsuit yesterday—in addition to the $100 million, she wants the spot off the air and every copy handed over.
