Girls Gone Wild Creator Sued Again

PANAMA CITY, Fla. — Trouble just seems to find Joe Francis. Two women who allege that sexually explicit footage was released without their consent on two DVDs are suing the “Girls Gone Wild” founder in federal court.

Brooke Pastolic and Christina Brose allege that they were enticed aboard the Girls Gone Wild bus and plied with free apparel and drinks, even though both girls were under 21. According to the lawsuit, both women allege they were coerced into exposing themselves and engaging in sexual acts after being promised the footage would not be used for commercial purposes.

While Pastolic and Brose claim they did not consent to be filmed, even if they did, due to their inebriated state, their consent was obtained illegally.

The lawsuit seeks unspecified damages.

Francis is currently jailed in Nevada on federal tax evasion charges. Francis pled not guilty in that case but elected to stay in jail to avoid extradition to Florida, to avoid arrest on charges of possessing contraband and drugs while being imprisoned there in May.

Exacerbating Francis’ legal woes, he’s also charged in Florida with using minors in sexual performances and prostitution.

5W Public Relations representative Barry Roesler told XBIZ that he would not comment on Francis’s latest lawsuit and that Francis would not be made available to the media.
