Mila Kunis responds to stolen chicken lawsuit

Mila Kunis is laughing off the bizarre allegations from an aspiring pop star who says the actress stole her pet chicken when they were kids.

Singer Kristina Karo told TMZ.com on Wednesday (22Apr15) that she has filed a lawsuit against the Ted star for emotional distress, stemming from bad memories of their childhood in the Ukraine.


Karo said that Kunis, who was born in Ukraine and moved to Los Angeles with her family when she was eight years old, allegedly stole her favorite pet chicken called Doggie, and she has been seeking counseling over the incident.


Karo wants the actress to pay $5,000 for her therapy bill and to compensate her for emotional distress.


Hours later, Kunis responded to the odd claims with fiance Ashton Kutcher, via a video on his livestreaming app Meerkat


In the post, Kutcher said, "Let's just get this clear, you stole a chicken from a one-month-old child who spoke to you? Not only was she one-month-old in Ukraine, but was speaking in English in Ukraine. This is the smartest girl I've ever heard of!"


He then panned over to his fiancee who noted that Karo's claims came out the same day as the promo for her song Give Me Green Card was released, as Kunis said, "It had nothing to do with her music video, that's just accidental."


Kunis continued to mock Karo's allegations and quipped, "I was devastated. I was weeping. I was dumbfounded. I was like, 'Which chicken did I steal?' I apologize to this woman, who was maybe or not a month old."


When Kutcher asked Kunis whether she has been physically served with this lawsuit, the actress responded, "No. Emotionally, I feel served."


She added, "I would like to launch a counter $5,000 lawsuit for making me sit there and watch your music video shamelessly. My body hurts. My eyes hurt, they're burning. That requires money."


Kutcher backed Kunis and added, "Listen folks, I believe this woman. I know her pretty well. I believe she is an ethical person and wouldn't steal a chicken. So there you have it - right from the chicken's mouth."
