Kristen Stewart Threatens to Sue Joan Rivers for Defamation

0

Kristen Stewart’s attorneys have threatened outspoken comic Joan Rivers with legal action over her description of the actress in her new book.

In Diary of a Mad Diva, the controversial funny-woman brands the Twilight star a “one-trick-pony” before making crude assumptions as to how she became successful in Hollywood.

According to TMZ, Stewart’s team have demanded Rivers remove the section from the book, or face a possible defamation lawsuit.

However, Rivers has laughed off the controversy. In a video posted on the website, she says, “I’m now being sued by Kristen Stewart. She obviously didn’t read our disclaimer, which is it’s a comedy book… I can’t wait to get her to court…

“Her lawyer contacted my lawyer, which shows the sense of humour she has… zero… I’m a comedian. I’ve been doing it for 50 years. If people don’t get it… Don’t read the book… If you’re going to take it seriously, you’re a fool.”

Diary of a Mad Diva is due for release in July.
