Joan Rivers

K-Stew Threatened to Sue Me

Over Slutty Comments

6/23/2014 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE



Kristen Stewart
threatened to sue Joan Rivers for saying her way to stardom was the casting couch.

Joan writes in her new book -- "Diary of a Mad Diva" --- "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."

Now here's the thing.  Although the book is satire, the statement is written as truth, especially with the backdrop of Kristen's very public, self-inflicted wound over her relationship with her married director, Rupert Sanders. 

We've learned Kristen's lawyer contacted Joan's people and threatened to sue for defamation, unless Joan 86'd the slutty references.  Joan's people tell us ... the prologue of the book -- due out early next month -- makes it clear it's all for laughs. 

A source close to Joan tells us ... they THINK Kristen's lawyer may have backed down, because it's been radio silent since the threat was delivered.

Joan has made it clear ... she doesn't care how Kristen feels about the book.  The passage stays in.

Lol its true Kristen Stewart is a s*hitty actress and only sleeps with directors for the job. Everyone knows that.

If Joan were slinging insults and was kinda funny about it, that would be one thing. But she is really just slinging insults at the easiest targets while being an unfunny old bag.

Even if what she is saying is true, how has Joan Rivers not been knocked the eff out by now? Mean old lady.

True or not, I get tired of people like Joan saying anything they please in the name of comedy. It's called kidding on the square.

I saw you were sent this story by a twitter person who hates on Kstew every day, as you have made it clear on more than one occasion, that you do to. She kissed another guy, two YEARS ago. Considering the sleaze by dudes that goes as standard in Hollywood, don't see why everyone keeps dragging this dead horse around.
There's no truth to Joan Rivers' joke but considering Kristen started making films at age 9 this "joke" - unqualified as it is - implies that all her earlier directors are rapists and/or pedophiles. That includes David Fincher (Panic Room), Jon Kasdan (In the Land of Women) -- pretty uncool.

She's in the same vein as Don Rickles - another mean one that I never thought was funny. Joan thinks she's still in Vaudeville, obviously. Ha ha ha.... She's a living piece of Mt. Rushmore - hasn't been able to smile since 1952.

kstew should definitely sue her. she's such an attention seeker. nothing good comes out of her mouth (or even her vagina!) nothing is really funny or interested about joan rivers. she's just old and desperate! goodluck to her!

The absolute defense to libel is the truth. She is a terrible actress and she slept with a director while cheating on her current girlfriend. That's all Joan needs for a defense.

I don't know whats with all you cry baby's. Nobody's allowed to joke anymore everything has to be so damn politically correct. This world sux now. Everybody has to apologize for every damn thing and not only is nobody allowed to joke but nobody's allowed to have an opinion. Why do we have to be so serious all the time.? Im sick of every time i Turn on the television someones making the rounds apologizing for a joke or something they said. Bravo Joan for not doing that! You are funny obviously no matter what these cry babies say otherwise you wouldn't be making a living off of it. I tried to buy tix to see you at a comedy club they were sold out in thirty min. Obviously because u ARE funny. These cry babies are just sad cause u don't give in like all these other wusses that fold and apologize. And obviously these cry babies have a big stick up there butt and are dull and don't joke. And NO I'm not apologizing for my comment!

Comedienne Joan Rivers has not been tickling many funny bones lately as her recent attempts to deliver some racy punch lines have fallen flat and been considered outright not funny and insensitive.
She also has one of the ugliest daughters in all of show-biz
