File this under “we can’t make this up” news. Mila Kunis, the actress who was a “Black Swan“, is now accused of being a chicken thief.
Kristina Karo, a singer from the Ukraine who claims she was a childhood friend of the actress, is accusing Kunis of stealing her beloved pet chicken, named Doggie, back when they were first graders 25 years ago.
According to TMZ, Karo has filed a small claims lawsuit in Los Angeles asking Kunis for $5,000 for the emotional distress the actress allegedly caused by stealing the chicken. According to the lawsuit, the $5,000 is to cover therapy “due to isolation for the loss of her chicken pet.” She states that her emotional distress is worse since arriving in LA and seeing Kunis because everyone in LA sees Mila Kunis everywhere all the time.
“Doggie was very smart and unique,” Karo told TMZ Live, while repeatedly mixing up the gender of the alleged pet chicken. When asked about the gender, she said it “was not something she could go into.”
Mila and her husband Ashton Kutcher responded with a video posted to TMZ. In the video Kutcher asked for his wife’s response and she joked, “I was weeping … I was dumbfounded … Which chicken did I steal?” Kunis claimed she’s filing a countersuit seeking damages for having to sit through Karo’s new music video: “My body hurts, my eyes hurt; they’re burning. That requires money.”
Looks like these two childhood friends won’t be hanging out anytime soon!
