Joe Francis has made his living off of filming videos for his Girls Gone Wild empire, but apparently there’s a few skeletons in his closet, as well. Joe has filmed an adult video with his current girlfriend Abbey Wilson, but someone has stolen her iPad — which contained the video. Will it ever see the light of day?
Joe revealed, “I’m a connoisseur of pornography. I’m Steven Spielberg when it comes to this.”
His lawyer, David Houston, said of the theft, “It is not only unfortunate, but it is a crime. As such, this office will take all necessary steps to determine who in fact has done this and who is attempting to distribute the video. When we catch you, we will see that you are prosecuted to the fullest extent of both the criminal and civil laws.”
Joe added, “We will never sign a release. You will never see this tape. This is not a publicity stunt. I just my property returned to me and for this criminal to be arrested and prosecuted.”
Generally, when someone has to say that it’s not a publicity stunt, it’s very likely that that’s exactly what it is. In fact, Joe and Abbey will be on the next season of Couple’s Therapy on June 12, 2013. Ha. What a tool.
Girls Gone Wild founder Joe Francis threatened Madonna with a lawsuit if she performed her song, then titled Girls Gone Wild, if she performed it at the Super Bowl earlier this year. Since, Madonna has changed the title of her song to Girl Gone Wild.
According to her manager, Guy Oseary, Madge didn’t change the name of her song because of Joe’s legal threats. Guy said that he found it laughable that Joe called the song change a victory after his camp sent the singer a cease and desist letter over the Super Bowl performance. He also revealed that no one in Madge’s camp even received Joe’s letter.
Guy also revealed that they changed the song’s title because that’s the way that she sings it in the song itself. TMZ has more:
And Oseary scoffs at Francis’ claim that he owns the title, “Girls Gone Wild,” citing a Billboard story that claims there are 50 records called “Girls Gone Wild,” including songs by Ludacris, Jagged Edge, T Mills, Lee Kernaghan, Lil Rick and Jackie Kashian.
And finally, Oseary says Madonna doesn’t even know who Joe Francis is … and claims she’s completely unaware he’s been making threats.
Do you think she had the song changed because of Joe’s threats? Or is her manager right in saying that she doesn’t even know who he is? What do you think?
Girls Gone Wild founder Joe Francis was involved in a car accident in Beverly Hills, which spawned a fight with a female driver.
He was driving down Rodeo Drive in his Bentley when he got into an accident with another driver. Joe and the woman began arguing over whose fault the accident was when it got physical. Apparently Joe was trying to take pictures of the accident and the damage to his vehicle, when the woman grabbed the phone out of his hand.
Cops say both suffered minor injuries. Francis says his finger was cut when the woman tried to grab the phone.
Police un-cuffed Francis and decided no one would be arrested.
We’re glad no one was hurt….but we still have to wonder who hit who? Why was she so pressed to snag his phone before he could take pictures?
Did he ask her to show him her boobs?
Apparently David Arquette is over his estranged wife, Courteney Cox. So much, in fact, that he’s dating someone new!
That someone new just happens to be Joe Francis’ ex-wife, Christina McLarty! If you can’t place who she is, check out the photo, below:
She was married to Joe for seven weeks before she flew the coop. She is a CBS News showbiz reporter and has been for four years.
David and Christina popped into the Camp Playboy event at Comic-Con last week. He was invited to a party by Alicia Fox, but went back to Christina. A source said that they “danced the night away together.”
I bet they’re a cute couple, don’t you think? I wonder if this is going to make Courteney file divorce papers already…. What do you think?
She should just go for it and file….She’s only been linked to co-stars, but maybe they can work it out? (Probably not.)

Put your bikinis away ladies, Girls Gone Wild founder and debt dodging jerk Joe Francis has gotten engaged.
Reportedly, Joe popped the question to his on/off girlfriend of four years, Christina McLarty. She’s a Los Angeles reporter who is also the niece of Bill Clinton’s former White House Chief of Staff.
Hope she can tame him! I didn’t think anyone would be dumb enough to wanna marry that d-bag. I just want to take this photo and Photoshop some horns on him. Doesn’t he look evil?
