(Newser) – Well, this is weird: The owner of an RV dealership that Taylor Lautner is suing has challenged the Twilight star…to a push-up competition. Lautner sued Brent McMahon’s dealership after claiming it failed to deliver an RV to his latest film set on time for him to use as a dressing room, and the dealership claims Lautner’s camp wants a $40,000 settlement. McMahon would rather settle it with push-ups.

If Lautner doesn’t accept, McMahon—who denies any wrongdoing—will defend the case in court, the AP reports. If he does accept, and McMahon wins, the 47-year-old businessman says he will donate the settlement money to a children’s hospital. Lautner's response, via his lawyer, calls out McMahon's "lack of professionalism" and says Lautner "will not dignify Mr. McMahon's facetious suggestion of a contest to settle a legal claim with a response."
