Mila Kunis no longer faces legal action over the theft of a chicken.
The Jupiter Ascending actress had been the subject of a lawsuit from childhood friend Kristina Karo, who accused her of stealing her beloved pet chicken Doggie 25 years ago, but the aspiring singer has now dropped her $5,000 claim against the star as she has ”learned to forgive” her.
She told TMZ: ”I’ve learned to forgive in my heart the people who have wronged me, like Mila. There is only one judge and that is God. I pray for her soul and the soul of Doggie, that he has found peace finally in chicken heaven.”
Kristina had been seeking $5,000 to pay for therapy to overcome losing her pet, and says the lawsuit became unnecessary when her fans heard the story and helped raise the money.
Mila and her husband Ashton Kutcher – who have eight-month-old daughter Wyatt together – previously laughed off Kristina’s claims.
In a video posted online, Mila said: ”I was devastated. I was weeping. I was dumbfounded. I was like, which chicken did I steal? I was obviously in the village when I stole these chickens so I apologized to this woman who may or may not have been a month old.”
And the couple went on to suggest the story had been fabricated to provide Kristina with publicity ahead of the release of a music video.
Ashton said: ”So this girl has a music video coming out at the same time she’s suing you for $5,000 for the stolen chicken when she was one month old and you were seven?”
And Mila joked: ”I would like to launch a counter $5,000 lawsuit for making me watch that music video. My body hurts. My eyes hurt. They’re burning. I feel like I will be a chicken fighter for a very long time. I would never steal somebody else’s chicken.”
Kristina had claimed the loss of Doggie caused her to become an ”emotional wreck” who needed therapy and, when she moved to Los Angeles to pursue a singing career, the close proximity to the star brought back the bad memories of losing her chicken and she needed further treatment.
Kristina also claimed Mila’s conduct prevented her from pursuing the American dream.
