Joan Rivers

Threatens Lawsuit

Over Michael Lohan's 'Cutting' Remarks

9/1/2013 1:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Joan Rivers fired the opening shot at Lindsay Lohan, but says Michael Lohan crossed the line when he responded by calling Joan an addict ... to plastic surgery ... and she's ready to sue him for it.

TMZ spoke to Joan after MiLo ripped the "Fashion Police" host for making drug jokes about Lindsay. Michael claimed Joan is hooked on needles (i.e. botox) and cutting/self-mutilation (i.e. plastic surgery).

Now, Joan has a double-barreled response to Michael. First, attacking him for even defending Lindsay -- saying, "It's a little late to become a concerned parent."

Then also throwing down a legal threat, adding ... "As for 'cutting' it is totally not true and if he ever says this again, I will sue."

Your move, Michael.

Oh please. If you can dish it, you need to take it Joan. What a baby. You're a seasoned comic. Act like one.

Besides, Michael is winning now that he knows you're so butt hurt.

Sounds to me like a bunch of desperate people got together and came up with an idea to try and get their names in the press. I'm surprised Melissa Rivers name wasn't mention, Joan is always trying to get her some free press.

Didn't she already admit that she IS addicted to plastic surgery when her daughter didn't want her to go with a procedure and then brushed her daughter's concerns off a little while back?

Isn't she addicted to plastic surgery? You know kind of how Lindsay is addicted to drugs and alcohol, Michael to attention and Dina to spending her daughter doesn't have.

Not sure if I believe this.Joan,herself,makes jokes and serious comments about her plastic surgery.She looks amazing for someone 80 years old and this look could only be because of her numerous plastic surgeries.

I doubt this is true. Joan regularly makes jokes about her plastic surgeries and now she's going to sue someone for saying the same thing? For what? What harm has this caused her? Nope. No cause of action.

She had extensive cosmetic surgery done many times. My good friend knew Joan and her friends very well and used to be vip at the comedy club in N.Y. City.

Joan says whatever she feels like about anyone and everyone, regardless of the damage she may cause.. If you can't stand the heat, get out of the kitchen darling.

Please... She makes crude jokes at everyone's expense. She calls them fat, trashy, ugly and every horrible verb in the dictionary. If a judge allowed it, she wouldn't have a plastic leg to stand on.

It's double standards when it comes to Joan. She rips others to shreds but can't handle it herself. She is a friend of kris Jenner. Say no more.
