Dita Von Teese's Swan Song

4/17/2008 10:36 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Dita Von Teese is pissed at a guy who was supposed to build her a swan, but the frickin' bird malfunctioned so she's suing!

TMZ has obtained a lawsuit, filed today in L.A. County Superior Court, in which Von Teese claims she hired the defendant, Fred Knaff, to build her a 10-foot-high swan with a fountainhead in the beak in which she could perform her act, which she calls "Swan Lake" -- we think it's a catchy name.

Bottom line, she says she paid Knaff thousands of dollars but the damn swan's water component malfunctioned at the debut of her show in Toronto in November of last year. She sent the swan back in a box, Knaff refuses to fix or return it. Now poor Dita says she can't perform without it and it's cost her more than $200,000.

Dita is suing for unspecified damages.

She's weird but at least she's more interesting than that idiot performance artist who used to come out on stage naked except for melted chocolate and then roll around on the stage. I've forgotten her name but then again I never wanted to remember it so.

I think the shoe story may have been an old one. But I still like her better than that other woman. I think her name was Karen or something like that.
BTW your Rangers are coming here for 4 games starting tomorrow. Sorry but I hope we sweep. At least we beat the Yankees tonight so we're alone at the head of our division. I'm afraid your Rangers are at the bottom of theirs.

NY Yankees, you're absolutely right. I expect the lead will change several times between now and the end of the season. May the best team win and may we see a lot of great baseball this summer.

Dita is a soft-core queen. - Under the line for Hollywood film acting.
I imagine there is a lot of suing that goes on between playboy bunnies, and hard, and soft porn actresses.

The soft-core film: "Romancing Sara" Put Dita on the map.
