Kristen Stewart Reportedly Suing Joan Rivers Over Rupert Sanders Joke

Kristen Stewart probably won't be waiting in line to purchase a copy of Joan Rivers' new book, "Diary of a Mad Diva."

Stewart reportedly moved to take legal action against Rivers over a passage in the comedian's book about the actress' affair with "Snow White and the Huntsman" director Rupert Sanders. In her book, which is due out next month, Rivers wrote: "Many stars only do one thing well. Of course, the best one-trick-pony is Kristen Stewart, who got a whole career by being able to juggle a director's balls."

"I am now being sued by Kristen Stewart," Rivers told a TMZ cameraman. "She obviously didn't read our disclaimer, which says it's a comedy book. I can't wait to get her into court because I'm gonna get a puppet and I want her to show me on the puppet where she thinks I claim she touched her director. I am looking forward to it."

"Her lawyer contacted my lawyer, which shows the sense of humor she has," the 81-year-old continued. "My answer to her was, 'Be glad you're not a Kardashian because they're mentioned a lot more in the book' ... I'm a comedian. I've been doing it for 50 years. If people don't get it, then don't come and see me. It's okay. Don't read the book. If you're gonna take it seriously, you're a fool."

Earlier this month, The New York Post's Page Six was the first to report on Rivers' jab at Stewart in her new memoir, and Stewart certainly isn't the only celebrity to get roasted between the pages. The "Fashion Police" host also takes aim at Lena Dunham, Taylor Swift, Anne Hathaway, Jennifer Aniston and Miley Cyrus, according to the New York Daily News.
