Dita Von Teese is taking legal action over a swan.
The burlesque performer has filed a lawsuit against Fred Knaff over claims the 10ft high bird statue - which has a fountainhead in the beak in which she can perform her act - malfunctioned at the debut of her show last November.
She claims to have paid Knaff thousands of dollars and when it broke she sent it back to him, but he refused to fix or return it.
Dita - the ex-wife of goth rocker Marilyn Manson - says she can't perform without it.
Meanwhile, Dita was recently photographed for a new foot fetish book.
She shows off her naked body and tiny feet in the new shots, taken by photographer Ed Fox.
Fox wrote: "The attractions of the foot, like the rest of a woman's body, are intriguing and a mystery. I really don't know why."
