Joan Rivers: Kristen Stewart Threatening To Sue Me Over Sex Joke (VIDEO)
Joan Rivers says Kristen Stewart is threatening to sue her for joking that her career success is based on having sex with directors. The comedian tells TMZ that her new book “Diary of a Mad Diva” has actually led to the actress making a potential legal move against her.
“I’m now being sued by Kristen Stewart,” says Rivers in the video. “She obviously didn’t read our disclaimer, which is it’s a comedy book.” She jokes, “I can’t wait to get her to court, because I want to get a puppet, and I want her to show me on the puppet where she thinks I claim she touched her director.” Asked whether she was serious about Stewart threatening legal action, Rivers reveals, “Her lawyer contacted my lawyer, which shows the sense of humor she has… zero.”
The comic can’t believe Stewart took the jab at face value. “I’m a comedian. I’ve been doing it for 50 years. If people don’t get it… don’t come and see me,” explains Rivers. “It’s OK. Don’t read the book.” She adds, “If you’re going to take it seriously, you’re a fool.” Rivers then finished up with a not-so-subtle oral sex joke about Stewart.
