Joe Francis Is In Trouble Again

Joe Francis (nee Jacob Frankel) is being sued by Ashley Dupre for taken pictures of her when she was 17.

Francis, 35, is a porn magnate, who started Girls Gone Wild, a video of intoxicated teen girls showing their breasts.

Francis made a public $1 million offer for Miss Dupre to appear in a "Girls Gone Wild" video and go on a promotional tour, then rescinded the offer after he realized he already had footage of Dupre from 2003.






I Was Just A Child Of 17

The lawsuit filed in federal court in Miami names as defendants "Girls Gone Wild", two of his companies and a man purportedly involved in creation of two Internet sites that the lawsuit contends improperly use Dupre's image to sell DVDs and other products.
