Rivers 'threatens Lohan with lawsuit'

Joan Rivers has taken aim at Lindsay Lohan's father after he slammed her for making jokes at the actress' expense.

The 80-year-old so-called Queen of Comedy is said to be disgusted by remarks made by Lindsay Lohan's estranged father suggesting she's addicted to plastic surgery.

According to TMZ, Michael had lashed out at Joan for making jokes at Lindsay's expense and now she's hitting back.

"It's a little late to become a concerned parent," Joan is quoted telling the outlet while issuing a legal threat.

"As for 'cutting' it is totally not true and if he ever says this again, I will sue," she said.

Joan's public spat with the celebrity dad erupted after Friday's episode of her hit US television show Fashion Police during which she made fun of a dress Lindsay wore.

The funnywoman seemed to think the frock resembled tin foil and remarked the actress may have more of it sitting on her counter, making reference to the use of foil in smoking crack cocaine.

Michael wasn't amused in light of Lindsay's recent stint in rehab, telling Radar Online: "People like Joan Rivers continue to take pokes at my daughter rather than look at themselves but she needs to consider the length of time of her addictions to needles (Botox) and cutting/self mutilation (plastic surgery) which far exceed the length of most addict's addictions. Either she has a mortician on retainer or she is getting her formaldehyde by smoking PCP," he fumed.

"At her rate, she wont need any embalming fluid when her time comes because she has more in her than most mortuaries have in inventory. Focus on you, Joan and have a little compassion for people with real talent like Lindsay, who have turned their lives around."

Lindsay, 27, has yet to comment on the feud.
