Kristen Stewart's attorneys have threatened outspoken comic Joan Rivers with legal action over her description of the actress in her new book.

In Diary of a Mad Diva, the controversial funnywoman brands the Twilight star a "one-trick-pony" before making crude assumptions as to how she became successful in Hollywood.

According to TMZ.com, Stewart's team have demanded Rivers remove the section from the book, or face a possible defamation lawsuit. However, Rivers has laughed off the controversy.

In a video posted on the website, she says, "I'm now being sued by Kristen Stewart. She obviously didn't read our disclaimer, which is it's a comedy book... I can't wait to get her to court... "Her lawyer contacted my lawyer, which shows the sense of humour she has... zero... I'm a comedian. I've been doing it for 50 years. If people don't get it... Don't read the book... If you're going to take it seriously, you're a fool."

Diary of a Mad Diva is due for release next month (Jul14)."
