By
Lindsay Lohan has lost her lawsuit launched against rapper Pitbull.

The Mean Girls actress sued the rapper in 2011 for using the lyric "I got it locked up like Lindsay Lohan" in his song 'Give Me Everything.'

Lohan sought a portion of the profits of the hit track, claiming that she never gave Pitbull permission to use her name in the song.

TMZ reports that a New York federal judge ruled against Lohan today (February 21), arguing that as a form of artistic expression, the song is protected under the First Amendment to the United States Constitution.

The judge added that Lohan's name was barely mentioned in the song, thus ruling out her claims of emotional distress.

Lohan recently said that her family is helping her cope with stress stemming from her legal troubles.
