Kristen Stewart is reportedly threatening to sue Joan Rivers after the sharp-tongued comedienne referenced the actress' affair with the "Snow White and the Huntsman" director in her new book, "Diary of a Mad Diva."

In Rivers' book, which is scheduled for release in July, the veteran comedienne wrote, "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," according to The Huffington Post.

Stewart's affair with married "Snow White" director Rupert Sanders, which broke in 2012 when Us Weekly published romantic photos of the two together, led to the breakup of Stewart and her "Twilight" costar and boyfriend Robert Pattinson.

But Rivers isn't backing down, telling TMZ Monday that getting Stewart under oath in court may be fun and that actress should learn how to take a joke.

"I am now being sued by Kristen Stewart," the 81-year-old told the gossip site. "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."

Rivers went on to add: "Her lawyer contacted my lawyer, which shows the sense of humor she has. 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 comedienne. 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."

The New York Post's Page Six first mentioned Rivers' comment about Stewart in her book earlier this month, but Rivers seems to spread the pain around to celebrities like "Happy" singer Pharrell Williams and socialite Paris Hilton.

Rivers drew criticism for her jokes recently about actresses Lena Dunham and Lindsay Lohan, as well as the three Cleveland kidnapping victims who escaped a home in 2013 after 10 years in captivity.
