    Actress and new mom Mila Kunis was sued by childhood friend, Kristina Karo, who claimed Kunis stole her pet chicken when they were children. Karo later dropped the charges after her therapist "taught her to forgive." "There is only one judge and that is God," Karo, a Ukrainian singer now living in Los Angeles. "I pray for her (Kunis') soul and the soul of Doggie, that he has found peace finally in chicken heaven." OK, then.

  • Sean "Diddy" Combs

    Valerie Joyce Wilson Turks sued Diddy for allegedly being one of the people behind the 9/11 attacks. Along with the music mogul, she also blamed his ex-girlfriend and mother of their twins, Kim Porter, as well as LAPD brutality victim Rodney King. "(Diddy) went through Kim Porter and Rodney King and knocked down the WTC and then they all came and knocked my children down," she claimed in court documents. "Set me up to be on diability and disabled my baby. He put my baby in a wheelchair." Turks also claimed she once dated Diddy and they have 23-year-old son Cornelius Wilson together. Aside from his reported terrorist antics, Turks said Diddy stole her casino chip worth "over 100 zillions of dollars." She sued for $900 billion in child support and $100 billion for "loss of income."

    Talk about being offended. Comedian Sasha Baron Cohen filmed part of his movie Bruno at a senior center, calling out the numbers during a bingo game in character as a gay Austrian TV personality. One woman said she was so horrified by the character's flamboyance that she tried to take the mike from Cohen. She said he hit her, causing her to later faint due to the emotional distress, hitting her head on a concrete slab. She later retracted her accusation that Cohen hit her. The lawsuit was dismissed.

  • Jay Z

    Diamond Dallas was not happy when he first saw Jay Z throwing up the Rock-a-fella hand sign because he claims he's the one that created it. The former pro wrestler had copywritten the hand gesture he called the "Diamond Cutter" in the '90s. He sued the rapper and Roc-A-Wear for copyright and trademark infringement and -- get this -- won. We're still shaking our heads as to how something like a hand gesture can get copyrighted. Then again, Jay Z once copyrighted a color, so...

    Jennifer Lopez was being sexy?! No way! Well, she was said to be acting too sexy during a performance at the Mawazine World Rhythms International Music Festival in Morocco and a lawsuit was the outcome. An education group filed the suit against J.Lo claiming she "disturbed public order and tarnished women's honor and respect." We beg to differ.

  • Kim Kardashian

    Kim Kardashian was hit with not one, but two lawsuits claiming she had terrorist sympathies, and that she made a sex tape in the presence of multiple animals -- including a unicorn. Gino Romano, of Brooklyn, N.Y., and Jonathan Kimberly of Philadelphia filed in the United States District Court in West Virginia in June 2012. Also implicated in the suit were Kim K's then-boyfriend Kanye West, and various family members. "The American citizens are in danger from the defendants," the lawsuit stated. Many would agree with that statement, minus the unicorns.

  • Pres. Barack Obama

    Jonathan Lee Riches filed a lawsuit against President Obama, Attorney General Eric Holder and "other terrorists" " who had allegedly stolen his guns. "The Obama administration is now brainwashing the public through ultra sonic means via the Sean Hannity Show, the Rusty Humphry Show, and the Rush Limbaugh ShowAmerican Idol, in collaboration with Dick Cheney, is visually transmitting the signals," the federal prison inmate's lawsuit stated. Riches is a repeat bogus-lawsuit filer: he's filed so many that it earned him nicknames like "sue-nami," "Sue-per-man," and "Legislator Crusader." 

  • Mariah Carey, Beyonce & Kim Kardashian

    A woman filed lawsuits against Mariah Carey, Beyonce, and Kim Kardashian, asking to "verify maternity," implying that she may have been the real mother of their tots -- or at the very least urging them to be aware that their kids may have come from foreign genetic material without their knowledge. She also demanded to have five CDs produced by "Moriah's" label. She told the NY Post that her DNA was being trafficked.

  • Miley Cyrus

    Singer Miley Cyrus and a few of her friends thought it was funny to pose for a picture while pulling their eyes to make them look slanted. It was definitely an offensive move, for which Cyrus later apologized, but one young woman was mad enough to sue the pop star on behalf of Asian Pacific Islanders everywhere, asking for $4,000 in damages for each Asian and Pacific Islander living in the U.S. Her heart was in the right place but her tactics were perhaps not the most productive. A judge dismissed the case. 

  • Jay Z -- Again

    In 2012, a man named Patrick White sued Jay Z -- via a handwritten lawsuit, no less -- accusing the rapper of stealing portions of White's writing and using them in the rapper's bestselling memoir, Decoded. Heavy accusations indeed, except White is the same guy who sued Nike for "stealing" his marketing idea for a new line of Kobe Bryant sneakers. So, yeah... 

  • Gwyneth Paltrow

    It may sound like the weirdest celebrity couple ever -- Gwyneth Paltrow and former L.A. Clippers owner Donald Sterling -- but somebody thought of it. That somebody was a man named Chris Martin, who clarified in a $10 million lawsuit that while he wasn't the Chris Martin, Gwyneth's ex, he was being harrassed by Paltrow and Sterling, whom he said were lovers with a secret pact to produce blond, blue eyes Aryan Nazi babies.
