Joan Rivers

Threatens Lawsuit

Over Michael Lohan's 'Cutting' Remarks

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

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.

Joan Rivers has been a comic for 50+ years and the first person she sues is Milo. I dont think so. Her reactions in this type of situation is more insults.

Wow Joan you like to cut down and make jokes at everybody else's expense. Can't take it when someone throws back at you. Look in the mirror Joan you and Bruce Jenner could be twins.

Lindsay is addicted to drugs and alcohol, Joan is addicted to plastic surgery and they all, including Michael, are addicted to fame. Established. Move on.

She is right about one thing. It is late for him to become a concerned parent. Yet he still talks about Lindsay to the media, so I wouldn't call that concerned.

Here's what's wrong with Milo's take on things: 1. His daughter was and is a CRACKIE. The jokes won't stop until she's sober for a LONG TIME. And by drawing attention to these jokes, he's keeping them from dying out. 2. Crackie , while only 27, is an ADDICT of BOTOX, NEEDLES, CUTTING(plastic surgery as well as actual cutting). He shouldn't call out Joan for the same thing because it also draws attention to how his daughter fvcked up her face as well. EVERY LOHAN SHOULD STFU and let the "NOISE" die down so their CASH COW can graze in GREENER PASTURES.

I noticed TMZ ‘forgot’ to include the statement Michael made about Joan’s joke, so here it is (from Radar Online):

“People like Joan Rivers continue to take pokes at my daughter rather than look at themselves but she needs to consider the length of time of her addictions to needles (Botox) and cutting/self mutilation (plastic surgery) which far exceed the length of most addict’s addictions,” Lindsay’s father tells Radar.

“Either she has a mortitian on retainer or she is getting her formaldehyde by smoking PCP. At her rate, she wont need any embalming fluid when her times comes because she has more in her than most mortuaries have in inventory,” Michael ranted.

THAT was in response to a joke Joan made about Lindsay’s dress, which is her job on her show, ‘Fashion Police’. She simply said, “Lindsay had more tin foil (used in smoking crack) on her counter than was in the dress.”

*JOAN doesn’t care if people make jokes about her plastic surgery, it was the choice of word Michael picked - ‘cutting’. I think Joan’s retort about it being a little too late to become a concerned parent was great, and I doubt she would actually sue him. She may not have said anything at all if TMZ hadn’t called her up and asked her for a comment.

For once it is someone other than a Lohan threatening a suit. It reminds me of when Donald Trump sued Bill Maher.
