Rockstar Fires Back at Karen Gravano

Remember back in February when we told you Karen Gravano was trying to sue Rockstar for $40 million over the GTA V character Antonia Bottino? Yep, that's still going on. Gravano insists they based Bottino on her--and more importantly, that they stole her life story to use in the game without her permission.

Maybe Rockstar is just tired of it. Maybe it thinks the whole case is absurd. Or, on the other side of the spectrum, maybe it isn't sure how to prove her story false.

Whatever the case may be, Rockstar fired back at her with the retort that Bottino clearly isn't based on her... because Gravano is much heavier than the character in the game.


We'll resist the urge to make a thousand puns about the weight of the lawsuit.
