Will Kristen Stewart really sue Joan Rivers? The former Twilight star is up in arms over something the crass octogenarian comedienne wrote in her new book Diary of a Mad Diva. It seems Rivers took a jab at Robert Pattinson’s ex, making mention of her affair with Snow White and the Huntsmen director Rupert Sanders.
“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,” Rivers wrote in her book that is due out some time in July.
“I am now being sued by Kristen Stewart,” Rivers reportedly said to a TMZ cameraman. “She obviously didn’t read our disclaimer, which says it’s a comedy book. I can’t wait to get her into court because I’m gonna get a puppet and I want her to show me on the puppet where she thinks I claim she touched her director. I am looking forward to it.”
“Her lawyer contacted my lawyer, which shows the sense of humor she has,” Rivers continued. “My answer to her was, ‘Be glad you’re not a Kardashian because they’re mentioned a lot more in the book’ … I’m a comedian. I’ve been doing it for 50 years. If people don’t get it, then don’t come and see me. It’s okay. Don’t read the book. If you’re gonna take it seriously, you’re a fool.”
Some Kristen Stewart fans are standing up for their beloved Bella Swan, and taking their own jabs at Joan Rivers.

It seems Kristen Stewart isn’t the only celebrity Joan Rivers takes merciless jabs at in Diary of a Mad Diva. She has aimed and fired at Jennifer Aniston, Miley Cyrus, Anne Hathaway, Taylor Swift, and Lena Dunham as well.
Do you think Kristen Stewart is really going to sue Joan Rivers? And if so does she stand a chance of winning? That whole freedom of speech thing is likely to come into play–as well as the fact that the book is a work of comedy.
If Kristen Stewart doesn’t want to relive her entire debacle of cheating on and losing Twilight costar Robert Pattinson when she had her escapades with Rupert Sanders, perhaps she should simply ignore Joan Rivers’ jabs and read a different book.
