Mila Kunis

That Ukrainian Chick's Pollo Loco!!!

4/22/2015 4:01 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Mila Kunis is calling chickens**t on the Ukrainian woman who claims the actress stole her beloved chicken, Doggie, a quarter century ago back in the old country.

With a little prompting from Ashton Kutcher, Mila says she was "devastated," and "weeping" after finding out Kristina Karo was suing her for $5,000 for emotional distress and therapy bills.

Mila and Ashton hilariously question the timing ... Karo is filing suit as she tries to hawk a music video.

For her part, Mila's contemplating a countersuit because the music video 'burned her eyes and hurt her body.'

If the judge would make the countersuit a class action, we'll gladly join.

By the way ... you should check out Karo on TMZ Live, unless you're chicken.

Mila Kunis Sued

You Stole My Chicken ...

So Cluck You!!!

4/22/2015 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0421-mila-kunis-kristina-doggie-karo-getty-instagram-01Mila Kunis has nice breasts ... problem is, she stole them along with other chicken parts, this according to a new lawsuit filed by a woman who claims to have been her best Ukrainian friend.

Kristina Karo claims 25 years ago she was in first grade with Mila in the Ukraine and they were inseparable. But Kristina says Mila had chicken envy -- specifically a chicken which answered to the name Doggie. Kristina alleges in her lawsuit she loved Doggie like a dog, and so did Mila, who would come to her house and play with the little clucker.

But one day Doggie disappeared, and Kristina says Mila confessed that she stole it, saying, "Kristina, you can have any other chicken as a pet, you have a whole chicken farm."

Kristina says in her lawsuit she became an emotional wreck and went into therapy.  

Years passed, Mila moved to L.A. and became a big star. Kristina also eventually moved to L.A. to pursue a singing career. But the proximity brought back all the bad memories, and Kristina says the visions of Doggie being stolen by her former best friend threw her right back into therapy.

Kristina now needs shrink money, and a little extra for all the emotional distress ... in all, $5k.

And Kristina says Mila's conduct has prevented her from pursuing the American dream.

Life, liberty and the pursuit of a happy meal.

Tinkerbell Dies

O.G. Purse Doggy Was 72

Paris Hilton's beloved pooch has gone to the big Barbie doghouse in the sky -- Tinkerbell passed away at the age of 14 human years ... roughly 72 small dog years.

Paris purchased Tink -- her first dog -- from an online breeding company in 2002. She was reportedly inspired to get the chihuahua after seeing the movie "Legally Blonde." 

Tinkerbell's led a charmed, yet difficult life. Growing up in the Hilton lap of luxury (and Paris' purse) has sometimes made her a target. In 2004, Tink went missing after burglars hit Paris' home.

Paris offered a $5,000 reward, but 6 days later Tinkerbell mysteriously reappeared. Paris never offered any details of how she got the dog back. 

Tinkerbell's also had to fend for Paris' affection ... since mommy now owns nearly 2 dozen other dogs.

Paris announced the loss on Instagram, saying ... "My heart is broken. I am so sad & devastated. I feel like I've lost a member of my family."

She added, "I love you Tinky, you are a Legend & will never be forgotten." #RIP

Furred Lines

Going Stupid 4 New Puppy

He knows she wants it ... so Robin Thicke made damn sure he scooped up an adorable puppy for GF April Love Geary.

Sources close to the situation say April's been itching for a pooch since March, so Robin did what any good boyfriend would -- last week he popped over to Bark N' Bitches in L.A. -- a no-kill shelter -- and snagged the cutest one for his lady.

We're told he dropped about $350 for the little terrier mix, named Bincy -- and based on April's recent onslaught of mushy-gushy Instagrams ... we're guessing she's shown Robin plenty of appreciation.

Fun fact: Marvin Gaye did NOT have a dog named Bincy. Sorry, Gaye fam.

I Have a Puppy!

EXCLUSIVE

0414_brian_williams_allison_dog_puppy_splash_launchSuspended NBC newsman Brian Williams did some serious damage control in New York City by strolling with his wife, his daughter Allison, and most importantly ... Allison's adorable new dog!

Williams has been laying very low since NBC took him off the air back in February for lying about being shot at in a helicopter.  

Brian had to know a few paparazzi shots of him snuggling Moxie -- a golden retriever puppy -- would look really good. Especially since ABC's World News Tonight just beat NBC Nightly News for the first time in a long time.

Williams' return is by no means a sure thing, but co-anchoring with Moxie could go a long way.

0410-erick-estrada-puppiesFormer "CHiPs" star Erik Estrada is still protecting and serving ... except now he's doing it for a pair of adorable dogs ... and his daughter who refused to take no for an answer.

The owner of Wylder's Holistic Pet Center & Rescue in Studio City, CA tells TMZ ... Ponch's teenage daughter stopped in this week and instantly fell in love with two terrier mixes. We're told she quickly phoned pops, and talked him into paying for the adoption.

Erik loved the pups so much, he actually wanted to adopt THREE other dogs, but his wife talked him down to just the dos ... which they named Nike and Shadow.

While filling out the paperwork ... Erik was bitten by the generosity bug, and made a separate donation of $1,000 to the shelter. 

Way to book bark 'em, Ponch.

0403-duffy-daisy-fuentes-getty-instagram-01Animal shelters should keep Grammy winning singer Duffy and Daisy Fuentes on speed dial ... because together they're a one-two dog saving punch. 

Our doggie sources say Duffy caught wind through an online dog forum that Bronx -- an adorable American Bulldog -- had one hour to live before an Orange County adoption center put him down ... so she stepped up and slipped $1,000 to L.A. shelter, Ace of Hearts to save him. 

That's when Daisy got involved. We're told she was looking to foster a pooch and fell in love when she met Bronx at Ace of Hearts. Bronx is now shacking up with Daisy ... who's covering all the costs to get him ready for adoption -- and that includes potty training.

Such good girls ... yes you are.

Dog the Bounty Hunter

In Dogfight Over Fugitive's Arrest

EXCLUSIVE

0330-dog-bounty-tmz-01Dog the Bounty Hunter is so into dogs, he allegedly tried to buy one off a fugitive ... while his cohorts were kicking in the guy's front door to haul his ass off to jail ... but Dog's lawyer says the fugitive is lying about him wanting to buying the pooch.

Dog's latest catch, James Hawkins tells TMZ ... he was arrested earlier this month at his Texas home, and as he was cuffed he claims Dog immediately locked eyes with his great dane -- and whipped out $1,000 cash to take it away.

Hawkins was pissed, and told Dog to lay off Duke -- a 7-year-old, 200 lb. pooch. He says Duke doesn't need to be rescued by DBH or anyone else.

Dog's lawyer, Marty Singer, tells TMZ his client NEVER tried to buy Duke ... never offered him a cent for the animal.  

Hawkins -- who was wanted for failing to pay bond on a previous arrest -- is considering suing Dog for trespassing ... and forcing him to sign release papers for the reality show. 

Meanwhile, Hawkins' fam didn't seem offended -- they all posed for pics with Beth Chapman while Dog was busting dear ole dad.

Justin Bieber

My Killer Bodyguard ...

Is Just A Big Puppy

3/24/2015 4:18 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Justin Bieber New DogJustin Bieber's bodyguard has been in a heated standoff with photogs and cops ... but he's just been given a tough new detail ... babying Bieb's 8 oz. puppy.

Biebs isn't playing around when it comes to Esther -- the same adorable little Silky Terrier he wined and dined at Mastro's in Bev Hills on Sunday ... it looks like he's put his top dog, Michael Arana, on the job.

The good news ... if Arana can handle himself against a gaggle of Miami cops or some unruly London paps like he did in 2013, he can more than handle picking up Esther's doodie.

No shame in taking care of the lil' doggie, as long as he's not getting paid in kibble.

Please Have Mercy on this Puppy!

Justin Bieber has a new dog ... which has got to be worrisome for the pooch. 

Bieber took the puppy for a fancy dinner at Mastro's Sunday night in Bev Hills. It's unclear why the restaurant let the terrier in.

Bieber Instagrammed the photo Sunday night ... showing the snuggly lil pup wrapped in Bieber's tatted arm. Her name is Esther ... reason unknown. 

0323-justin-bieber-instagram-01

This is where history is both useful and alarming. You'll recall Biebs famously gave away his pet hamster to a fan a few years back (it died a few months later) and abandoned a pet monkey at a German animal shelter.

Good luck, Esther.
