    Dita Von Teese is sueing over the "Mel Gibson" style rant

    Burlesque artist Dita Von Teese has filed a lawsuit against her former landlord for making antisemitic remarks - despite the fact that she is not Jewish.

    Ms Von Teese said the comments came after she told her landlord she was leaving the property and wanted her £3,200 deposit back.

    According to court documents filed in Los Angeles, the landlord "went on Mel Gibson-like antisemitic tangents, personally attacking [Ms Von Teese’s] Jewish managers and business managers.”

    He also allegedly warned her to “beware of Jews” because “in your business no one can do anything without them.

    “Jews they have shucks [sic] the whole world dry and still more to come."

    Ms Von Teese is perhaps best known for a routine that involved her stripping while in a giant cocktail glass.
